With just over a month left before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding, which is to be held on May 19 in St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, rumors about the future bride's dress are everywhere. The latest rumours suggest fashion labels Erdem or Ralph & Russo may have been tasked to design and produce the gown, which will be the focus of much attention during the ceremony. Here's a look back at some of the most beautiful dresses at royal and princely weddings, including the those worn by Elizabeth II, Grace Kelly, Lady Diana, and more recently Kate Middleton.
On November 20, 1947, Princess Elizabeth married Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in a dress designed by dressmaker Norman Hartnell. Embroidered with 10,000 pearls, it had a 4m long train with embroidery motifs of scattered flowers.
The gown worn by Grace Kelly at her wedding to Prince Rainier III on April 19, 1956, was made by costume designer Helen Rose, and given as a gift by MGM Studios—a real Hollywood star's dress.
