Crown Princess Mary, 2004

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - THE ROYAL WEDDING -

Mary Donaldson’s re­fined, scoop-necked gown was made from the finest duchess satin, heir­loom lace pan­els and a six-me­tre train trimmed with Chan­tilly lace. Cre­ated by Dan­ish de­signer Uffe Frank, the dress re­port­edly took 350 hours of work and in­cor­po­rated 100-year-old Ir­ish lace worn by Prince Fred­erik’s great grand­mother, Princess Margaret of Swe­den, on her wed­ding day in 1905. Mary’s veil was also Ir­ish lace and was worn with a glit­ter­ing tiara that had been be­stowed by Queen Mar­grethe II. Her ear­rings were a teardrop halo, set around lu­mi­nous South Sea Is­land pearls.
