The wedding of Princess Diana and the legendary Prince Charles was held in St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 29, 1981, that is, about 39 years ago. The most prominent feature of it was the bride’s dress, which the British newspaper “The Independent” described as having soaked in it so far due to its enormity.

The details of the dress have been influencing wedding dress trends for years, and fashion designer David Emmanuel created it with royal designer Hardy Emes, who began working with Queen Elizabeth II in the 1950s.

Princess Diana summoned the fashion designers to set a date for the completion of the dress, which took a very long time, and has since been recorded in history as one of the most expensive and luxurious wedding dresses around the world.

The wedding dress is made using ivory silk taffeta, and the sleeves are designed with lace patterns, which were a bold 1980s fashion trend.

The dress was also provided with hand-embroidered sequins with pearls and formed the heart on the dress, and the official website of the royal family stated that the daniel was borrowed from the property of Queen Mary, the grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II.

As for the wedding veil, made of silk tulle made of mother-of-pearl, the princess completed her wedding look with a diamond crown from the personal collection of the Spencer family, and was distinguished as the longest royal wedding dress in history, with a length of 7.62 meters.

Diana also had a spare dress at the wedding, in case her original wedding dress design was leaked, so they could be sure it would surprise everyone.

In an article published in “The Press Courier” the day after the royal wedding, it was mentioned that Princess Diana’s wedding dress was the most closely guarded secret in fashion history.

Time magazine chose the dress in 2018 as one of the most influential British royal wedding dresses ever, and confirmed that the tailors began making the dress within hours of the ceremony.

In 2014, Princes Harry and William received their mother’s wedding dress, as Prince Harry took the dress and Prince William received the engagement ring.
