Queen’s Elizabeth II’s wedding dress on display in Windsor Palace
LONDON: Queen Elizabeth II’s memorable and elegant dress worn by her granddaughter Princess Beatrice at her wedding has now been put on public display at Windsor Palace.
According to the World News Agency, Britain’s Princess Beatrice wore the dress of her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, which was first worn by the Queen in 1962 and her granddaughter 58 years later in a simple wedding ceremony in July this year. Considering the historical status of this dress, the dress has been put on display.
One of the reasons why this dress is on display at Windsor Palace is that it has a unique status in the history of the British royal family as it is the only dress of the Queen of Britain that her granddaughter wore as a wedding couple.
The dress for the queen was made by renowned British fashion designer Norman Hartnell, which used pure silk and was embroidered with silver for four months.
The 94-year-old Queen wore the dress only twice, the first time in 1962 at the premiere of the English film Lawrence of Arabia in London and the second time at the opening of the British Parliament in 1967.
Princess Beatrice borrowed the dress from her grandmother, the Queen of Great Britain, and wore it on her wedding day with minor modifications. The princess also wore the crown that the queen wore to her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947.
