Meghan Markle’s second wedding dress won’t be going on display and here’s why

Last week, it was announced that Meghan Markle’s wedding dress would be going on display at a public exhibit in Windsor Castle.

This confirmation came a week after speculation that the custom-made Givenchy dress designed by Clare Waight Keller would soon again be in the eyes of the public.

And that it will be. Confirming the new exhibition, Kensington Palace wrote:

“The wedding outfits of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go on display at Windsor Castle in 2018 and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh in 2019 in a special Royal Collection Trust exhibition‬ — visit @Royal_Collection_Trustto find out more about ‪“A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”

And although Prince Harry’s outfit will be a replica of his military uniform, it has been announced that the Duchess of Sussex’s second dress will not be going on show at all.

The custom made Stella McCartney halter neck dress was only seen by the public once on the wedding day. This was when Harry and Meghan were running out the doors of the palace, heading straight to their reception.

And now, according to Hello, there is a very understandable reason for the dress not going on show.

A spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust, organisers of the exhibition, explained to Hello that the dress did not make the exhibition, due to the reception being “a private affair”.

I mean, that’s understandable.

Also on show at the exhibition will be the diamond and platinum bandeau tiara, lent to the Duchess of Sussex by the Queen.‬
