THE moment Meghan Markle stepped out onto the steps of St George's Chapel is a memory sure to be etched into the minds of Royal fans everywhere.
But luckily enough, for those of us who need a reminder, the famous Givenchy dress is on the move, and is set to be on display in Edinburgh for a special exhibition on the magical day.
The bridal party outfits will be on display in Scotland for the very first time from June 14, as part of a display titled A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Focused around the pièce de résistance of Meghan's iconic gown, with it's boat neckline and tapered waist, it's not to be missed if you're a fan of the Duchess.
Designed by Claire Waight Geller, artistic director at Givenchy, the silk dress will be shown alongside the five-metre-long veil and the diamond and platinum tiara that held it in place.
And for that extra touch of realism, in the hands of the made-to measure model, a replica of the bridal bouquet has been created from artificial flowers.
How much did the Royal wedding cost?
Weddings can be expensive – but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s nuptials reportedly cost a staggering £32million.
The experts at the company Bridebook say the bulk of the costs were spent on security – but over a million alone was spent on the flowers, food, drinks and Meghan's bespoke gown.
Some of the key costs included:
- £90,000 for 20 silver-plated trumpets that will announce the event
- £50,000 on the lemon elderflower cake from Violet Bakery in East London
- £110,000 on flowers to adorn the aisles of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle and St George’s Great Hall
- £30million on security measures
- £300,000 to £400,000 on Meghan’s dress
Prince Harry's Household Cavalry uniform, which was specially created by tailors at Dege and Skinner on Savile Row, London, will stand proud next to Meghan's dress.
While it isn't thought to be the real thing that he wore on the day, Harry is said to have loaned an identical uniform to the Palace of Holyroodhouse for the exhibition.
If that's not enough, Prince George page boy uniform and Princess Charlotte's high waisted silk bridesmaid dress will also be there to look at.
And for a behind-the-scenes look at the wedding, visitors will also get to watch pre-wedding recorded footage where Harry and Meghan discuss their choice of outfits, music and flowers.
The exhibition runs until October 6 – and you can find information on how to purchase tickets at the Royal Collection Trust website.
