Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress is set to go on display at Windsor Castle.
The young royal’s Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown, which she wore last October (18) when she exchanged vows with Jack Brooksbank, will be featured as part of a new exhibition on 1 March (19).
The 28 year old has also recorded an explanation behind her bridal style, in which she explains her decision to wear a design featuring a low back in order to show off surgery scars from a procedure she underwent for scoliosis. That will play alongside the stunning piece.
“I believe scars tell a story about your past and your future,” she says in the audio.
The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II worked closely with Pilotto and De Vos on the long-sleeved ballgown, which features a corseted bodice, a full pleated skirt, and a number of meaningful motifs.
The accessories she paired the gown with, including her diamond and emerald drop earrings which were a gift from her husband, and the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara on loan to her from the Queen, will also be showcased.
The princess’ second look from the big event, a Zac Posen evening gown, will be available to view as well, along with Brooksbank’s suit, the purple maid of honour dress worn by Eugenie’s sister Princess Beatrice, and the bridesmaid and pageboy outfits.
Princess Eugenie is the latest member of the royal family to display a wedding dress at Windsor Castle – the Givenchy gown Meghan, Duchess of Sussex wore on her big day, was on show last autumn, while Kate, Duchess of Cambridge’s Alexander McQueen bridal look was featured in 2011.
The exhibition will run from 1 March to 22 April (19).

Copies of Amal Clooney’s popular Stella McCartney dress are now available to purchase.
The human rights lawyer, who is married to Hollywood actor George Clooney, made a splash at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in May (18) when she stepped out at Windsor Castle, England in a marigold yellow midi dress with cap sleeves and matching hat from the London-based fashion designer.
Amal’s ensemble proved to be a major hit with fans on social media, and now, Stella has released replicas of the dress for customers to buy.
“Worn by Amal Clooney to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding, Stella McCartney’s canary-yellow Amal dress will make an elegant statement at a special occasion,” a description of the garment reads on the Matches Fashion website. “It’s crafted to a vintage-inspired silhouette with a lightly pleated square neckline and ties at the back which flow over the figure-flattering shape. Style it with metallic accessories and glittering pumps for a sophisticated edit.”
Known as the Amal Tie-Back Crepe Dress, the number is currently only available in yellow. The dress is priced at $1,612 (£1,250).
Apart from Meghan’s stunning white Givenchy wedding gown and her chic halterneck reception dress, also designed by Stella, Amal’s outfit was one of the most talked-about looks from the wedding.
According to data compiled by researchers at Lyst, over 17,000 people, from 65 countries, searched for a yellow Stella McCartney dress in the 48 hours following the wedding, while traffic to the designer’s website increased by 3,000 per cent in one day.
Other highly sought-after looks from the wedding included actress Carey Mulligan’s floral Erdem dress and the black floral Valentino ballgown tennis ace Serena Williams wore to the reception.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has reportedly agreed to show off her couture Givenchy wedding dress as part of a public exhibition at Windsor Castle.
The former Suits actress tied the knot with Prince Harry in May (18) and now sources tell U.K. newspaper The Daily Express her bridal gown, which was designed by Clare Waight Keller, will be on view at the royal residence by the end of 2018.
Officials are engaged in talks to finalise exhibition details, with an announcement expected soon.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel, not far from where her dress will go on display.
Kensington Palace officials released original sketches just days after the nuptials took place, and Waight Keller has previously spoken about her experience creating the iconic dress with the Duchess.
Revealing it took over 3,000 hours and a crew of 50 to create the wedding dress over a four month time period, atelier Clare noted she and Meghan worked hard to individualise the garment while respecting royal protocol.
“I loved that Meghan and I decided to go for something that no one would expect,” she told Women’s Wear Daily. “It was not a classic bridal dress, and I felt that it said something about the kind of woman she is, and intends to be.”
“I aimed for a very modern and fresh design, just like I find Meghan to be, so I really wanted to represent her. I wanted her to feel absolutely incredible in the dress and, also, I wanted her to feel like it was absolutely right for the occasion,” she added. “Meghan is genuine, warm, radiant and a really strong woman. She knows what she wants and, really, it was an absolute joy working with her.”
Meghan’s historic dress recognised British royal legacy by honouring the 53 Commonwealth nations in embroidery on the Duchess’ wedding veil.
