Wedding dresses, they’re pretty magic right?

For many women it will be one of the most important dresses they’ll ever wear and the cost for a gown can be quite eye watering.

The allure of a wedding dress isn’t confined to your own or that of friends and family either. For many of us, the first thing we want to know about any given bride is what she wore, such is the power of the white dress.

Just look at the speculation and column inches reserved for royal wedding dresses, the pre amble of who might make the dress and what it will look like to the post dissection of every inch of fabric, we are essentially a little wedding crazy.

Of course royal wedding dresses are extra special and the highly scrutinised final choice is beamed across the world and reported internationally and after any royal wedding it is also customary for the dress to be later exhibited so the public can really get their fill and have an up close look at the final gown after the event.

After Meghan Markle and Harry got married, Meghan’s wedding dress went on display at Windsor Castle (where they married), later her dress was replaced by Princess Eugenie’s stunning Peter Pilotto dress.

One of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time is of course, Princess Diana’s. The dress featured a 25 foot silk train (the longest in Royal history) and 10,000 mother of pearl sequins and pearls. It was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. The dress and veil cost £9,000 at the time and remains one of the most iconic royal wedding dresses.

It has been exhibited and displayed many times over the years but you may never see it officially again.

This is because in 2014, Prince William and Harry received Princess Diana’s belongings, as per her request for them to be given to her sons when they turned 30.

Subsequently the dress is now part of their private collection, which means they will be able to decide if it ever gets displayed again. The pair are notoriously private so it maybe that we never see Princess Diana’s wedding dress displayed publicly again.

According to Marie Claire “Eleri Lynn, former curator of the exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story, held at Kensington Palace in 2018, revealed this in a conversation with historian and Historic Royal Palaces’ joint chief curator Lucy Worsley.

Asked if we would ever see the dress again, she replied it was now ‘part of the private collection of the Dukes of Sussex and Cambridge’."

We will just have to keep pouring over photos.
