It was a bumper year for royal weddings and now fans can relive some of the magic as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s outfits are set to go on display at Windsor Castle in March.
The exhibition, A Royal Wedding: HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank will showcase Eugenie’s Peter Pilotto gown from the 1st of March in Windsor Castle’s state apartments.
The announcement comes just a month after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s wedding outfits closed for viewing to the public at Windsor castle, while Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress was also displayed at Buckingham Palace after her marriage to Prince William.
However, several of the Queen’s other children and grandchildren and their spouses haven’t had the same royal treatment as Eugenie.
The Queen’s son Prince Edward and his bride Sophie married in 1999 at St George’s Chapel with a carriage procession afterwards, just like Eugenie, while Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly did the same in 2008 – but their dresses weren’t displayed.
Zara Tindall’s wedding attire was not exhibited either, but the decision could be down to the fact that Eugenie has a royal title, while Zara and Peter Phillips do not, and she is the only blood princess of her generation alongside her sister Beatrice.

Eugenie’s wedding dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, which she wore to marry Jack Brooksbank on October 12th last year, will be on show alongside Jack’s Savile Row suit, made by tailors at Huntsman.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see Eugenie’s designer dress, which had a wide-neck V shape and low back to show off the scars from Eugenie’s surgery at 12 to correct scoliosis.
They will also see the corset and underskirt, which gave the dress its body and shape.
The designers originally researched previous wedding dresses worn by members of the Royal Family and identified a silhouette.
During several fittings, the dress was developed layer by layer, from the corset and complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt.
Also on show will be the Emerald tiara that the Queen lent to Eugenie on her special day.

On public display for the first time, the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, made of rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, has six emeralds on either side.
The tiara dates back to 1919 and was made by the Parisian jewellery house Boucheron for Mrs Greville in 1919. Mrs Greville left the the tiara to Queen Elizabeth, consort of King George VI, in 1942.
