Princess Diana walked down the aisle of St. Paul’s Chapel in a wedding gown by Elizabeth and David Emmanuel with its deep ruffles of taffeta, fitted bodice, puffed sleeves, and 25-foot prepare. (To today Diana’s prepare stays the longest in royal historical past.) Ten-thousand mother-of-pearl sequins and pearls adorned the extravagant look, which the younger princess accented along with her household’s Spencer tiara.

Like her sister, Princess Margaret additionally wore Norman Hartnell for her wedding to photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones. He made an hourglass ballgown silhouette out of plain silk white organza, with no different elaborations. On the time, Vogue wrote that she was “a brand new princess; her gown, unadorned.” As an alternative, she saved the assertion for her headpiece: the grand Poltimore tiara, a Victorian-era jeweled creation with diamond floral scrolls.
Such simplicity would later be honed by one other royal bride—the Duchess of Sussex.
