Are you one the billions of people in the world who missed the royal wedding last year? Well, it is not too late to catch a glimpse of the royal wedding attire.
Meghan Markle’s stunning wedding dress is now on display, for the public to admire. Metro, reports that the dress has been displayed as part of an exhibitionentitled, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland. The dress which cost more than $25,000 USD has been called the central piece and the crowning jewel, of the exhibition.
Last year 2018, at her wedding, Markle wowed the entire world witha breath-taking Givenchy wedding dress which was designed by Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director at Givenchy. The Duchess also had a second dress at her wedding reception, a custom silk gown by Stella McCartney. This second dress was nearly not as impressive as the real wedding dress and was not featured as part of the exhibition.
According to Metro, other items featured in the exhibition include theduchess’s striking, 16-foot-long veil embellishedwith delicate flowers, Markle’s diamond tiara which was given to her as a gift from the Queen, and an exact replica of her bouquet made of artificial flowers.
At the time of her wedding, fashion experts had insisted that Markel’s choice of outfit had propelled her to becoming a much bigger style influencer than Kate Middleton. Interestingly, the dress had divided social media at the time. According to Bazaar, while many described the dress as"gorgeous," "beautiful," and "stunning", others are less than impressed. Critics of the Duchess, took toInstagram and Twitter, telling followers, royals and Markle fans that Markle's super-simple wedding gown by Clare Waight Keller was boring, ill-fitting and ugly.
The dress, however, definitely had more fans than haters.Leading Irish stylist CorinaGaffey quoted on Independent had said about the dress, “I think it represented her style perfectly. It was sleek and minimal, which is what we've seen a lot of from Meghan and Givenchy was a curveball designer," "That neckline was absolutely stunning. When you marry into the monarchy, there's no room for playfulness or embellishment, this dress will stand the test of time. It was very Audrey Hepburn-inspired, who was a Givenchy bride."
Apart from Markle’s weddingoutfits; other things on display at the exhibition in Scotland include Prince Harry’s Household Cavalry uniform which was displayed next to Markle’s dress, alongside the wedding outfits for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
According to The Sun, Prince Harry’s uniform may not be the exact one he wore on his wedding day, however, it is an exact copy.
