The most famous wedding dress of 2018 is ready for its close-up.
Kensington Palace announced Wednesday that the Givenchy bateau-neckline wedding dress worn by Meghan Markle for her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry will go on public display at Windsor Castle later this year. The Royal Collection Trust’s A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex exhibit will also feature an identical version of the Household Cavalry frock-coat uniform worn by the groom on the couple’s big day.

When it comes to the Meghan’s dress, however, visitors to Windsor Castle — where the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed — will see the actual dress designed for the royal bride by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller. Her embroidered veil and diamond-and-platinum tiara (a loaner from grandma-in-law Queen Elizabeth II) will also be on public display.
The exhibition gets underway on Oct. 28 and will run through Jan. 6, 2019. The wedding regalia will then move to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, from June 14-Oct. 6, 2019.
And while royal watchers are already clamoring for a U.S. tour, it may be prudent to get your travel agent moving just in case Meghan’s homeland doesn’t make the cut.
