Fans of the royal family will be happy to hear that Duchess Kate’s wedding dress is going on display!
The ivory and and white satin gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen will be shown at Buckingham Palace in London. The dress is the centerpiece of the summer public tours that open this Saturday.
Demand for tickets has increased 107% from last year and is expected to break the box-office record.
Kate and Queen Elizabeth will get a preview of the exhibit when they tour the collection together today. Kate, who made the ultimate decision to display the dress, also chose to feature a replica of the wedding cake as well as wedding shoes and other accessories.
Tickets are on sale for $28.50 and the tour includes a look at 19 staterooms and the garden. Exhibition curator Caroline de Guitaut, says “visitors will see what a great example of British couture it is, and how much detail and how much work went into the creation of this dress. The beauty really is in the detail.”
