Princess Anne, 1973

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

Princess Anne worked closely with de­signer Mau­reen Baker to bring to life the vi­sion she had for her wed­ding to Cap­tain Mark Phillips. She looked de­mure and serene when she walked down the aisle at West­min­ster Abbey in a high-necked Tu­dor-style gown, em­bel­lished with seed pearls and long, dra­matic, me­dieval sleeves that bal­looned from her wrists and trailed al­most to the floor. The pin-tucked bodice en­sured that, de­spite the full cov­er­age, the dress was flat­ter­ing and el­e­gant. Princess Anne’s two-me­tre satin train was aug­mented by the fine tulle of her veil, which was held in place by the strik­ing Queen Mary Fringe tiara. The tiara was also won by Princess El­iz­a­beth at her 1947 wed­ding, hav­ing been fash­ioned from a neck­lace given to Queen Vic­to­ria for her wed­ding in 1893.
