Even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married back in May of 2018, that doesn’t mean that people are completely over it, as the couple’s royal wedding display exhibition will remain open due to high demand.
The Windsor Castle and its exhibition, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex was all ready to be closed on Jan. 6, but since royal fans are all about it the location will now keep its doors open, as now visitors will be able to attend from Jan. 19 to Feb. 17. Here’s what a Royal Trust Collection spokesman had to say: “The extra dates were added because it has proved very popular with visitors and we had the oppournity to extend the run.” No surprise here, but the main attraction is of course Meghan’s wedding dress, which was made by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of Givenchy.
Along with the dress, the veil has also been a showstopper, as it was embroidered with the flora of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth — a reference to Harry’s recent appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. There’s plenty more to see at the exhibition from Harry and Meghan’s big day. In fact, royal fans are able to admire Queen Mary’s 1932 diamond and platinum bandeau tiara, which was lent to the Duchess by Queen Elizabeth for the ceremony, and is now on display for the first time in history.
Plenty of family and friends were at the royal wedding, including Harry’s brother, Prince William, as well as the Duke of Cambridge’s wife, Kate Middleton. William and Kate’s kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were also in attendance. At the exhibition, people will be able to see the pageboy uniform that George wore, as well as Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. And if you happen to miss the display, even with its extended run, do not worry because it will then be moved to the Palace of Holyroodhouse from June 14 to Oct. 6, 2019. You know, if you’re near there.
