Royal watchers looking to relive Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s fairytale wedding are in for a special treat: An exhibit is in the works to put the Duchess of Sussex’s Givenchy gown — among other items — on public display.
According to Kensington Palace’s Twitter account, the exhibit, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, by the Royal Collection Trust, will debut this fall and include Meghan’s dress, her five-metre-long silk tulle veil (embroidered with flowers from the 53 countries of the Commonwealth) and the diamond and platinum bandeau tiara that was lent to her by Her Majesty the Queen.
The exhibit will also feature a replica of the military uniform — a frockcoat of the Blues and Royals — that Harry wore on the big day.
However, fans won’t get the chance to feast their eyes on Meghan’s second wedding dress — the stunning halter-neck Stella McCartney gown that she wore to the exclusive reception party at Frogmore House. The reason? As a spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust told HELLO!, the dress cannot be viewed in person since the Duke and Duchess’s wedding reception was a private affair. (Hmm …)
The highlight, though, will be the main wedding dress. Designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, the gorgeous, minimal silk gown featured an open bateau neckline and sculpted waist. I mean, really, who wouldn’t want to see that in person?
The exhibit, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will debut at Windsor Castle from Oct. 26, 2018 to Jan. 6, 2019 before it travels to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh from June 14, 2019 to Oct. 6, 2019.
