The wedding dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, will be on display at Kensington Palace for the first time since the late Princess was in residence.
The Royal Style in the Making exhibition, which opened at the Princess of London’s home on June 3, will also include a canvas for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s coronation gown in 1937. Conservatives promise never-before-seen examples of outfits from evening and bespoke pieces created for three generations of royal women.
But it is undoubtedly Diana’s dress that will be the centerpiece of the exhibition. This is in part due to the time that has passed since its last exhibition (around seven years have passed since it entered the private collection of Prince William and Prince Harry, when Harry turned 30; many expected to what Diana’s sons keep the dress out of the public eye forever, but they agreed to lend it to this show).
