Ever since Netflix’s The Crown Season 4 aired the Princess Diana wedding scene, fans have been craving for another glimpse at her nuptials to Prince Charles. Now, Lady Spencer’s iconic gown (and its gigantic 25-foot-train!) is on display in a new exhibition at London’s Kensington Palace, titled “Royal Style in the Making.”
The ivory dress featured dramatic puffed sleeves and encrusted pearls and sequins that shone brightly during Princess Diana’s arrival at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral in June of 1981. She styled the gown, made by Elizabeth Emanuel, with her family’s tiara and a 153-yard veil, which sadly will not be displayed at this year’s exhibition, according toWomen’s Wear Daily.
“Royal dress isn’t about fashion,” Claudia Acott Williams, curator at Kensington Palace, told Women’s Wear Daily. “It’s traditionally been about marrying stability and continuity with innovation.”
