Why you’re due a visit to Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

If wedding dresses and renowned designers are in your wheelhouse, then news of Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress available at Windsor Castle is just what you need.

The dress is well-and-truly steeped in history and tradition, having been designed by the renowned British fashion designer Sir Norman Hartnell, the dress was loaned to Her Royal Highness by Her Majesty The Queen for her wedding to Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on 17 July 2020.

It is made of ivory peau de soie taffeta, and the skirt is trimmed with a band of ivory duchesse satin. The dress is an example of Hartnell’s signature crinoline silhouette and love of embellishment, as seen in the geometric hand embroidery in crystals and diamantés over the bodice, waist and hips.

And that’s not even the half of it; with an entire life story all its own, the dress is only one of the most exciting things to see at the famed palace, open all year. Book tickets and make your plans to visit at the Windsor Castle website.
