Despite The Queen calling it “horrible” and “very creepy”, the display of Kate middleton’s wedding dress has proved to be a hit at the Buckingham Palace exhibition.
Ticket sales for the London exhibition have risen dramatically since the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown has been on show when the exhibition re-opened in July 2011. Jonathan Marsden, director of the Royal Collection, said: “Unprecedented numbers came to see the duchess’s wedding dress, as the centrepiece of a special display celebrating the role of British design.”
Visitor numbers were 52% higher than the 2010 summer opening and the dress has become so iconic that it now has its very own wikipedia page.
How do feel about the wedding dress being in an exhibition? Do you think it’s a public item for displaying or should it have been kept private and just for Kate?
