“Our summer exhibition at Kensington Palace will spotlight some of the greatest talents in British design whose work has been instrumental in shaping the visual identity of the royal family throughout the 20th century,” said Matthew Storey, curator of the Historic Royal Palaces exhibition one statement per people. “We will examine how the partnership between each designer and client works, and the process behind creating some of the most important couture commissions in royal history.”

The iconic piece is instantly recognizable by its luxurious design, which features a scoop neckline, an ornate collar, and voluminous puffed sleeves. The hallmark of the dress, however, is its remarkable 25-foot train, which to date remains one of the longest dress trains in royal history.
