We can’t deny our love for The Royal Family.

Whether it’s a public appearance at an organisation or attending a family meeting, we can’t get enough of them.

However, there is one special event that tops them all and that is a royal wedding.

One wedding in particular that will go down in history is that of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in July 1981.

The reason that it has become such a memorable event is due to the iconic dress in which the Princess of Wales floated down the aisle in.

Now after nearly two decades since it was last on display, the flawless gown will be going back on display for the public to admire in all its glory.

It was announced earlier this week that Kensington Palace will be curating a new exhibition titled ‘Royal Style in the Making’ which opens to the public on June 3 and will continue until January 2 2022.

In the exhibition, attendee’s will get to see never-before-seen pieces from the royal family's wardrobes, sketches and most importantly, Princess Diana’s wedding dress.

The tickets will cost £23 for adults and just £11.50 which you can purchasehere.

When it comes to a royal wedding, the public are always eager to watch the moment where the bride steps out of the carriage and reveals her stunning gown.

If you speak to those who watched the wedding back on the 29th July, 1981, they will be able to tell you their exact reactions to Princess Diana’s unveiling of the dress.

The dress was designed and made by The Emanuel's who made multiple items for Diana to wear.

However this dress was special for so many reasons.

From the oversized puff sleeves to the incredible lace work which adorned the ivory silk taffeta fabric, but it was the gigantic 25-foot sequinned train that followed the Princess down the aisle which stole the show.

In ‘A dress for Diana’ the Emanuel’s reveal how “as she got out, the train expanded and it just kept on coming and coming and you wondered when it was ever going to end.”

“You could hear the crowd gasp with disbelief that a train that long could come out of a coach so small. Everybody seemed to love that magical moment.”

The dress was last on show at Kensington Palace in 1995, and now ahead of what would have been her 60th birthday on July 1st, Prince William and Prince Harry have approved the use of their late mother’s wedding dress for the exhibition.

Prince Harry is also set to reunite with brother William on the date to unveil a new statue of The Princess of Wales at what is said to have been her favourite spot in Kensington Palace, known as the Sunken Garden.

So if you’re planning on getting up close and personal to the wonderful statue, why not pop inside the Palace and take a look at her marvellous wedding dress.
