Many people will remember how it felt on Wednesday 29 July 1981, as they lined the streets of London, held street parties around the UK, and sat glued to their TVs to watch the magical wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. No? Ask your parents!
The pomp and circumstance of the event were broadcast all around the world, and when Diana stepped out of the fairytale-like glad coach that Brough her and her father to the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral, everyone’s expectations were exceeded, and every little girl had a new vision of their future wedding dress.
Now, that dress, with its amazing train, veils, and delicate lace is to be put on display for the first time in 25 years at Kensington Palace, reports Harpers Bazaar.
The dress is being loaned by Princes William and Harry, so it can be part of the Royal Style in the Making exhibit, which opens June 3rd and will run through January 2nd, 2022. Tickets are required.
The exhibition is focusing on the relationship between fashion designers and the royals. Designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel were the creative geniuses behind Princess Diana’s gown.
This summer will mark what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday, and her sons will be unveiling a statue to honour her. It will be located in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, where Princess Diana lived.
The Princes have said they want the statue to ‘recognise her positive impact in the U.K. and around the world’.
During her life, Princess Diana brought attention to important issues such as humanising those who have HIV and AIDS and working to rid the world of landmines by famously walking through a field in Angola.
