The Simply Luxurious Life®: Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Dress on Display

Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Dress on Display

With the summer opening of Buckingham Palace to tourists on July 23rd, Kate Middleton, or the Duchess of Cambridge, will have her elegant, yet simply and timelessly created wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen’s fashion house, on display. (Click here to see what the Queen had to say about the display.)

Advanced ticket sales have already sold an astounding 125, 000 tickets priced at $28.53 each (setting a record). Along with the handmade dress which is displayed in the ballroom where the couple’s wedding reception was held, tourists will be able to view the actual wedding cake (only the top 3 layers were replaced), her handmade high heels, a replica of her modest, yet perfectly chosen bouquet and the Cartier tiara full of 888 diamonds loaned to Ms. Middleton by the Queen.

To view all of the specific details of the dress and the wedding day photos, click here.
