One of the most iconic gowns of our time is going on display this weekend. Duchess Kate's stunning Sarah Burton, £250,000 gown will be the star attraction at Buckingham Palace's annual exhibition. Millions who admired the dress from their television screens are being offered the chance to see the dress up close and see an exclusive video featuring Sarah Burton discussing the creation of the dress and the participation of Kate during the entire process. 'We wanted to look to the past, yet the future as well'. The detail on the dress is really quite extraordinary as you will see in the photos below. Duchess Kate is expected to join her majesty to formally open the exhibition. (I will update if any photos surface :))
While the dress will certainly take pride of place, Visitors are being offered the chance to relive the wedding with other key items on display. The 1936 cartier tiara Kate wore on her wedding day and her size five and a half hand stitched shoes will feature as will the acorn earrings her parents gave her. Even the wedding cake will be shown! There has been record demand by fans eager to catch a glimpse of William and Kate's big day. 600,000 people have paid the £17.50 fee to visit the exhibition over the next ten weeks.
The exhibition runs until October 3, If you are interested in seeing Kate's dress or any of the wonderful pieces on display you can purchase a ticket HERE
