Emily Learmont gives a description of the outfits and objects on display in A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Refreshments are included.

From 14 June to 6 October 2019, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will form part of your visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. This special exhibition will feature the wedding outfits worn by the couple at their wedding in May 2018.

The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress was created by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.  The Duchess chose Ms Waight Keller for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, and for the impeccable tailoring of her creations. The Duchess and Ms Waight Keller worked closely together on the design.

The Duke of Sussex’s wedding outfit was the frockcoat uniform of the Household Cavalry (the ‘Blues and Royals’), made by tailors at Dege & Skinner on Savile Row.  As the uniform specially commissioned for the occasion is required for use by His Royal Highness, an identical uniform made for The Duke by Dege & Skinner a few years earlier will be displayed.
