On display in the Grand Reception Room at Windsor Castle are Her Royal Highness’s wedding dress, tiara and evening gown, Mr Jack Brooksbank’s morning suit, and the maid-of-honour outfit of HRH Princess Beatrice of York.

Princess Eugenie was clear on the design of her wedding dress, produced by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos:

‘I had always wanted a low back, part of it was showing my scar. I believe scars tell a story about your past and your future and it’s a way of getting rid of a taboo.

HRH Princess Eugenie

Jewellery on display

On her wedding day, Princess Eugenie wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, which was lent to her by Her Majesty The Queen. On public display for the first time, the tiara is made of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side. It was made by the Parisian jewellery house Boucheron for Mrs Greville in 1919 in the fashionable kokoshnik style popularised in the Russian Imperial Court. Mrs Greville bequeathed the tiara to Queen Elizabeth, consort of King George VI, in 1942. Princess Eugenie’s diamond and emerald drop earrings, which were a wedding gift from the groom, are also featured in the display.
