Kate Middleton’s Dress to Go on Display for Public to get a Close Up
As Kate Middleton walked through the doors of Westminster Abbey last Friday, all eyes were fixated on her and her wedding dress. Comprising of a pretty classic lace on the top and intricate detailing on the train of her dress, Kate Middleton looked very much the fairytale princess.
The designer behind her dress was none other than Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton. Sarah Burton has not been shy to compliment Kate and her collaboration after the wedding dress was revealed, however after the big day passes, what happens to such as beautiful dress?
I know for many of us, it is neatly placed away into a wardrobe or loft, however the same fate is not applicable for Kate’s dress. Instead the dress, which is approximately worth Â£40,000 will be put on public display.
The venue of the dress has not been decided, however there are three obvious choices which include State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court Palace and The Victoria & Albert Museum.
The late Princess Diana’s famous wedding dress, has also been kept safely for the public to see (I don’t think even Diana would have had a wardrobe large enough to accommodate her Â£9,000 puff ball meringue wedding dress with a 25 ft train!). More recently, Art handlers Nick Grossmark and Graeme Murton showed off the 275 yards of pearl-studded silk taffeta, tulle and netting dress at an exhibition in Manhattan.
