The Duchess of Cambridge thanks those that created her wedding dress
Coming up to almost a year ago, Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in one of the world’s most beautiful wedding dresses. Millions of people lined the streets of London and millions more watched the Duchess’ big day on television, gasping as she appeared from her wedding car, wearing that dress.
Although it was McQueen and Sarah Burton’s name behind the creation of the dress, the designer obviously had a little help from workers at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace. The needleworkers had no idea that they were designing a dress for Royalty and they washed their hands every thirty minutes in order to keep the lace clean and in good condition.
The Duchess of Cambridge recently visited the Royal School of Needlework to thank those that helped to create her dress. The Duchess spoke to 30 members of staff and thanked them for their hard work, commenting on the pressure they must have been under to design something so intricate.
Talking to the Telegraph newspaper after the Duchess’ visit, the school’s chief executive, Susan Kay-Williams said: “It was lovely to meet The Duchess of Cambridge and to show her what the Royal School of Needlework does.”
