Princess Diana's Wedding Dress Returned To Prince Harry And Prince William

Princess Diana's wedding dress is one of the world's most famous and most recognisable wedding gowns - with its 25ft train and puffed sleeves.


And now, 33 years after Princess Diana tied the knot to Prince Charles during a lavish ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral, her wedding dress - which was covered in thousands of pearls and made up of layers of silk - is finally being returned to her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

Following her death 17 years ago the Princess of Wales' dress went on a tour around the world, but according to the Mail on Sunday, Buckingham Palace has confirmed the dress is finally being returned to her boys.

The dress - along with all of her belongings - was put into the possession of Diana's brother Earl Spencer and he placed the dress in an exhibition called Diana: A Celebration. Diana's will had asked that her brother look after the items until both her sons turned 30 and Prince Harry is set to turn 30 in just two weeks.


Most recently the gown was held in Cincinnati Museum Center in America where visitors paid £15 to see it and 28 other dresses belonging to the Princess.

While the dress was returned to the family's home in Northamptonshire for two months every year, it has spent the rest of its time in all corners of the globe.

Some argue the dress should now be displayed at Kensington Palace, the official home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Well, it's certainly nice to see the gown back on British soil.
