The Dress:

David and El­iz­a­beth Emanuel de­signed the fa­mous gown with the huge puffed sleeves, 25-foot train (which got badly crushed in the car­riage) and 10,000 hand­stitched pearls ac­cent­ing the ivory silk taffeta and an­tique Car­rick­macross lace that had be­longed to Queen Mary.

The Tiara: The di­a­mon­den­crusted Spencer heir­loom was so heavy it gave Diana a headache.

The cel­e­bra­tion of Cather­ine Mid­dle­ton and Prince Wil­liam’s mar­riage on April 29, 2011, is im­pos­si­ble to for­get—from the rev­e­la­tion of the top-se­cret dress to the aisle of West­min­ster Abbey lined with 20-foot trees.

Queen El­iz­a­beth II wore the bright­est shade of prim­rose yel­low, and maid of honor Pippa Mid­dle­ton wore an ivory dress that caused a sen­sa­tion with its wgure-hug­ging form. In 2014, Pippa ad­mit­ted that the dress may ºhave wt­ted a lit­tle too well,” jok­ing, “As I have found out, recog­ni­tion has its up­side, its down­side and—you may say—its back­side.”
