I'm thinking they didn't put Harry and William's outfits up because they might need them. Ok I know it's just for the summer but still ya never know. But they should have atleast put up one of the flower girls dress next to the wedding dress.

Didn't the brides maids get to keep the dresses? I don't know how one would go about getting one of them for the exhibition.

And now, something that was posted on my twitter. I read it, and not quite sure what I think, if I were to be honest.

I find it hard to believe the dress cost that much. Lace can be very expensive when handmade but that seems overpriced. I still find the dress a little boring and with no real sparkle to it. I am surprised they couldn't use one of the flower girls dresses, I'm sure Lady Louise would have loved it. Pippa's dress was over rated as is Pippa I didn't like it as a bridesmaids dress it took focus of the bride and being that it was spoken about for weeks shows that it did indeed cause a stir. I do like how Catherine and the Queen get along and I would think she probably is or will call her Granny like William does. It does look very somber and sort of spooky. Maybe they will have more lighting when it opens? I do like the shoes and the earrings are lovely! I think Catherine said everyone got a piece of cake it looked nice alot of work went into it. I gather it would have been fruitcake if they are saving the top two tiers for their first childs christening!

This is just off the wall but I'm thinking that perhaps the price of the dress would also include the wages paid for seamstresses and such that worked long, hard hours to create it. From what I've been reading there were a lot of people that put a lot of time and specialized work into that dress.

I really wish I could go to BP and be able to examine it up close. It is such a beautiful creation.

Alright here it is the video where you actually hear the Queen call the dress display 'horrid'
BBC News - Queen overheard criticising Duchess wedding dress display

India Hicks said on a program before the wedding that for Charles and Di's wedding they had asked for one of the girls to give up their dress for display and it ended up being little Clementine Hambro so that's why I thought maybe the same was going to occured here.

It seems the Queen was laughing when she called the display horrid. It also sounded like Kate sort of agreed with her - although I could be wrong since I couldn't catch the entire conversation. Either way, the media made the Queen's comment seem far harsher than it really was.

So true when I saw it I was like come on that's not THAT bad! I totally thought she said it in a mean way the way everyone was portraying it.

Kate goes " I know right without the head"

So she obv agreed and didn't see anything wrong with the Queen's comments.

^Yep. Her comment wasn't bad at all. They both seemed to be laughing about it.

It seems they were both thoroughly amused.

Yes, the bridesmaid's did get to keep their dresses as their names are stitched into the fabric, but I do think they could've borrowed one to put on show. Perhaps the little girls did not want to part with them!

I love the Queen and all her honesty. She does not sugar coat anything, and rightly so. It does look horrid and very ghostly. I would like to go and see it, but it does look quite frightening.

They could have asked Lady Louise if she lent her dress for the exhibition in Grandma's palace... I bet the little one would have been very proud then.

Queen spooked by Catherine's wedding dress display - FRANCE 24

The Queen is a pretty cool customer, it was obvious how nervous Kate was in her presence, making some strange remarks to keep a conversation going.

Molly2101 just like you, I have the same opinion
I really like the honesty of the Queen

What strange remarks? I didn't hear her say anything out of the ordinary.

The question if the Faberge pieces are still being made how about getting some information beforehand or think logically for once.
The organizers must be stunned and wont have slept well after HM's blunt remarks
Sorry it looks like straight out of a horror movie.

It sounded to me like HM was describing something that happened or could have happened and "wasn't that horrible" or "would have been horrible". But it's really hard to know as one only heard bits and pieces of what she was saying.

I'm just glad that we got to see HM and Catherine together without William around.
Regardless of the display and disapproval it have gotten, that dress will make big cash for the Palace. So I don't see HM really worrying about it.

Well, then I guess the Queen also needs to get some information. She said Faberge pieces are just shoved away in cupboards, while the curator stated that they are in constant use.

Yep. They are already selling loads of tickets for this display - advance ticket sales were more than double last year's summer opening.

I agree with Mia Mae ..... the Monarchy needs the entrance fees to continue its mission.
