It has been announced that the wedding gown of the Duchess of Cambridge would be displayed during the summer opening of Buckingham Palace between July 23 and October 3.
Kate's veil, tiara and wedding shoes and the diamond earrings she wore on her wedding day would also form part of the display, reports the Daily Express.
William and Kate's wedding cake, created by cake designer Fiona Cairns, will also be shown in the state dining room to complement the wedding dress exhibition, according to the Royal Collection.
The Duchess's gown featured lace applique floral detail and was made of ivory and white satin gazar, with a skirt that resembled ‘an opening flower’ with white satin gazar arches and pleats. The dress's beautiful, intricate train measured 9 feet.
Individual flowers were hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered on to ivory silk-tulle to create a design that incorporates the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock. Each lace motif, some as small as a 5p piece, was applied with minute stitches every inch or so.
The bride's veil was made of layers of ivory silk-tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers.
