This exhibition will mark the gown’s first public display at Kensington Palace since 1995.

Diana’s sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, reportedly both agreed to lend the dress to Historic Royal Palaces for the exhibit, where it will be displayed alongside a working pattern for the Queen Mother’s 1937 coronation gown.

Princess Diana lost a considerable amount of weight before the big day, which meant some alterations were in order before she could be stitched into the final version of her dress on the day of the wedding.

She ended up with a 23-inch waist from a 26 to 27-inch,” designer Elizabeth Emanuel told People.

When the big moment came on July 29, 1981, the dress cascaded out of the royal carriage, as Diana took her place alongside her proud father John, 8th Earl Spencer.

It’s always been about a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis,” recalls Emanuel. “And that is her story, really. She was emerging into a new world, a new life’s adventure.”
