A special exhibition, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, has just been announced. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have tied the knot back in May, but people across the world are still talking about it. From Meghan’s Givenchy white dress to her never-ending veil and stunning tiara, it was a wedding that has set trends for years to come.

Now they’ve had the impressive wedding garb dry-cleaned and dusted off and they’ll be going on display at Windsor Castle from October and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh in January so that the public can get a closer look.

The added bonus: it’s free. 

The Dress

Hotly discussed by many due to its boat neckline bodice, the dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller for French fashion house Givenchy.

Kensington Palace has said that after meeting with Waight Keller in early 2018, Meghan chose to work with her for her “timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour”.

Meghan worked closely with Waight Keller on the design, choosing to epitomise “a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952”.

The accessories

In addition to the dress, you’ll also be able to see the veil and all its detailing, too. 

Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each of the 53 Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. 

Plus, on public display for the first time, that diamond and platinum bandeau tiara, which was lent to Meghan by Her Majesty The Queen.

And, of course, let’s not forget Prince Harry’s suave ensemble. 

The Duke of Sussex’s wedding outfit was the frockcoat uniform of the Household Cavalry (the ‘Blues and Royals’), specially commissioned for the occasion and made by tailors at Dege & Skinner on Savile Row.

A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will start from 26 October 2018 to 6 January 2019 at Windsor Castle, and from 14 June to 6 October 2019 in the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The exhibition is free but you can book tickets here for guaranteed entry. Tickets for the Palace of Holyroodhouse will be available from 1 November 2018.
