Princess Diana’s wedding dress is arguably the most iconic gown of all time. Since her death in 1997, her brother Charles Spencer has been holding the dress for safe keeping, but soon it will be changing hands.
According to TODAY, Princess Diana’s wedding dress is to be given to Prince William and Prince Harry on September 15, when Harry turns 30 years old. That’s right, the two men will receive the stunning ivory gown that is covered in pearls and has that infamous 25-foot train, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. Princess Diana wore the incredible dress during her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981. Since that time, it has been on countless numbers of displays around the world, including the exhibit “Diana: A Celebration,” which is held twice a year at the Althorp in England.
What the boys will do with the gown is beyond us, however it is a magnificent and special piece that should belong to her children. We wonder if they will continue to put it in exhibits, or perhaps Kate Middleton will store it away for if and when she and Prince William have a daughter. After all, it is one of the most expensive wedding dresses to ever exist.
According to her Will, Prince William and Prince Harry will also inherit jewels, photos, letters and the score and lyrics to Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” song the singer wrote for their mother. Head over to TODAY for more information.
