Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Dress Is Going on Display at Windsor Castle
Like Meghan Markle’s Givenchy gown, Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress is getting the royal treatment it deserves.
Buckingham Palace announced today on Instagram that the 28-year-old Princess of York’s custom Peter Pilotto gown will be put on display at Windsor Castle for a limited time, so better book that airfare ASAP.
“The wedding outfits of HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank will go on display at #WindsorCastle from [March 1 to April 22, 2019],” the palace captioned a slideshow of the princess and her husband on their wedding day, October 12, 2018.
The caption went on to say, “Princess Eugenie wore the Grenville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara on her wedding day, which was lent to her by The Queen. The tiara will be on display for the first time at Windsor.”
Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress featured a low back that displayed her scar from a scoliosis surgery when she was 12 years old. It also included hidden symbols.
The Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos–designed dress incorporated a thistle to represent her and Brooksbank’s love of Balmoral Castle in Scotland. It also included a shamrock to represent her mom’s, Sarah Ferguson’s, Irish heritage and a York rose to pay homage to her father’s lineage. The symbols were assembled into a “a garland of rope like motifs” and then “woven into a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend” in the Como region of Italy.
Although tickets for the exhibit aren’t available yet, they’ll soon be up to purchase on the Royal Collection Trust website.
