Leopold always said that Victoria reminded him of Charlotte. This can't have been so in physique, however. It's clear that Charlotte was certainly taller than the tiny Victoria, and was a healthy, strapping sort of girl!
For once I have to disagree, because of the discolouring of the silk, we can see that stunning needlework in all it's glory. As a Needleworker, I'll admit to some bias there, but I do think of all that beautiful work done on Wedding Gowns and it's never really seen due to the white on white. At least on Charlotte's we can see and admire *cough*droolover*cough* the skill of those who did that gorgeous work. :)
As you said though...That dress, in candlelight...Charlotte must have just looked so magical that night. :)
