Get an Up-Close Look at Meghan Markle's Givenchy Wedding Dress at This Exhibition
“A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” is open now at Windsor Castle.
It’s been nearly six months since the whole world tuned in to watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tie the knot and if, like us, you’ve been obsessed with Meghan’s incredible wedding dress, this is your chance to get a better look. The dress, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy is being shown as part of the “A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” exhibition that’s fittingly being held at the wedding venue of Windsor Castle.
The timelessly elegant bridal gown, alongside the five metre-long veil and the diamond and platinum tiara gifted to Meghan by the Queen will be on display, alongside an identical version of the Household Cavalry uniform Prince Harry wore. There are also other notable elements from the wedding on show, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s adorable outfits. Discussing the exhibit with Harper’s Bazaar Caroline de Guitaut, senior curator at the Royal Collection Trust shared:
“As the dress is so deceptively simple, I thought it was really valuable for visitors to get that little bit of insight into what it really takes to make wonderful couture and everything that is involved. From the word go, when I presented idea to them in January, the Duke and Duchess were very keen on the exhibition. They could see the value in sharing these pieces, their experience and their memories, much in the same way they wanted to share their wedding day.”
“A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” is open for visitors at Windsor Castle until 6 January 2019. You can find out more info and book tickets at royalcollection.org.uk. In related news, did you see all the subtle symbolism on Meghan’s wedding dress?
