Queen Elizabeth II recently celebrated her 90th birthday and to mark the occasion, her royal wedding dress is on display at Buckingham Palace, as part of collection of her clothes that will open to the public on Saturday. The showcase, organised by The Royal Collections Trust, is a part of the 90th birthday celebrations of the world's oldest monarch.
Titled "Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen's Wardrobe", the showcase is also part of the summer opening of Buckingham palace, features clothing from her childhood to the present day and also the dress worn by Elizabeth II for her coronation in 1953.
The exhibition will be on from 23 July to 2 October, and will be hosted at two other venues apart from Buckingham Palace: Holyrood Palace and Windsor Castle. Around 150 dresses will be on display.
