Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hoping to relive the couple’s May nuptials will soon be able to see their famous wedding outfits up close.
Queen Mary’s 1932 diamond and platinum bandeau tiara, lent to Meghan by the Queen for the star-studded ceremony, will will also go on public display for the first time.
The Duchess’s Givenchy wedding dress, created by British designer Claire Waight Keller, will be one of numerous outfits on display at A Royal Wedding : The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex.
Fashion lovers and royal enthusiasts alike will be able to see details of the silk gown, its train and well-recognised boat neckline.
The intricate five metre-long veil, on which flowers of the 53 Commonwealth countries are embroidered along with Wintersweet and a California Poppy, will also be on display.
A copy of Harry’s Savile Row-tailored uniform will feature at the exhibition, which will begin at wedding site Windsor Castle before making its way up to Holyrood Palace.
The Duke has lent a replica of the suit to the Royal Collection Trust, but has kept the original as it is still "required for use."
Meghan’s wedding day style
The specially commissioned frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals was made by Dege & Skinner and paired with a pair of trousers made of blue and black wool barathea.
Meghan surprised fans by choosing Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy, a name which wasn’t a favourite in the lead-up to the royal wedding.
After the pair met in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour.
Ms Clare also has an impressive CV and has served as the creative head of three global fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy – another reason for Meghan’s decision.
The British-born designer said: "It is truly an honour to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Meghan Markle on such a remarkable occasion."
A Royal Wedding: The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex will be at Windsor Castle from October 26 to January 6, and at Holyrood Palace from June 14 to October 6 next year.
