The British Royal Wedding – Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Dress

The wedding dress of Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, was a secret right up until the moment when she stepped out of the Rolls Royce in which she travelled to Westminster Abbey. A flowing ivory gown of satin and lace, the wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander MacQueen, who fulfilled perfectly Catherine’s wishes to combine tradition and modernity.

In an acknowledgment to the difficult economic times, Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Dress was of a far simpler and more understated style than many royal wedding dresses of the past. The dress’s bodice was handmade by the Royal School of Needlework, using hand-crafted English and French Chantilly Lace. The skirt is said to echo an opening flower and is made from white and ivory satin gazar. The wedding dress features a train measuring two metres and 70 centimetres.

Described as an example of ‘skilled British craftmanship’, the wedding gown is to go on public display shortly, possibly at Kensington Palace, where the wedding dress of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, was also displayed.
