Do tell us if you find out; I think it would be wonderful to know she had been part of that glorious day, even if indirectly.

I've always loved the Queen's wedding gown; for me, it's just the type of a gown future Queen should wear. But even prettier than the actual dress was the stunning train. It is in fact one of my favourites ever, with only competition coming from Crown Princess Mette-Marit's and Crown Princess Maxima's trains.

This may be unpopular, but I'm not a big fan of Elizabeth's gown. It's definitely not ugly or too much like Diana's; it's just not one of my favs. I will say that it definitely does not look like a 1940's dress.

First row - # 8 is Prince Micheal of Kent. He was one of the two page boys.


Can't help otherwise.

Number 6, third row - I believe that's the King of Norway.
Incidentally, here is a much larger picture that will help getting the details a bit better.

Thank you! I was in doubt if he was Prince Michael or his brother The Duke of Kent.

I thought Juliana is the first one in the first row, though I'm not 100% sure. If Juliana is the #5 in 2nd row, who is the #1 in the 1st row?

Thanks for your help, and thanks for finding the larger picture.
Besides, I've noticed just now that behind the King of Norway was another man, of whom only an ear and part of the hair can bee seen.

I think #11 in the 2nd row - the tall woman behind Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Gloucester - may be the Duchess of Aosta or her sister the Queen Mother of Romania (born Princesses Irene and Helen of Greece). I'm not totally sure, but I think she is the Duchess of Aosta.

Yes, that is Queen Juliana in second row. She's right in front of her husband Prince Bernhard.

Seen this dress twice - first at KP and then at Buckingham Palace. It is stunning and the work and detail that is on the dress is beautiful. It was a perfect dress for the Heiress with the work on the details and emblems. This is a masterpiece by Hartnell and considering the post war difficulties it make sit even more special

The Glass Coach was used at Princess Elizabeth's wedding. Her mother, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret rode in the Glass Coach to Westminster Abbey. King George VI and Princess Elizabeth rode in the Irish State Coach to the Abbey. Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip rode in the Glass Coach from the Abbey after the wedding service.
I saw news footage of the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
The commentator exclaimed, "The joy of the Princess and people was now complete." as Elizabeth and Philip rode in the Glass Coach from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.
Truly beautiful.

Prince Philip signed the register with the gold fountain pen with the names of his sisters.
His sisters had given Philip the gold fountain pen as a joint wedding present.

At the reception, King George VI held up his champagne glass and tearfully said "To the bride!" A few days later he wrote her a touching letter. I always found that so sweet!

Prince Philip's sisters, Princess Margarita of Hohenloe-Langenberg, Princess Theodora the Margravine of Baden, and Princess Sophie of Hanover, listened to their brother and Princess Elizabeth's wedding service on the radio in Marienburg Castle.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Queen Elizabeth II's Gown

I really don't like this wedding gown. While I find the embroidery and the details exquisite, I don't like the overall design of the gown. I really dislike the color and the top design. Also, there are too much details on the dress in my opinion. The veil however is absolutely breathtaking. Very regal and majestic.

From my view, this gown is not horrible but simply too dated to be one of my favorites.

I think that dress was very glamourous fro that time, and you can spot Queen Elizabeth's style and taste there. Keep in mind that she got married in uncertain times, therefore it is well reported she chose not very expensive gown...

Given the dress was used nearly 70 years ago, you would expect it to have dated!

At least in one way, Princess Elizabeth was like her subjects.
She had clothing ration coupons.
To imagine that a lady's wedding day, an important day in her life, had to be dictated by clothing ration coupons is unbelievable.
However Princess Elizabeth came through!!

Having seen the dress up close and personal all I can say is 'wow' it was magnificent.


The dress was on display at KP during the Golden Jubilee year, along with Victoria's, Mary's, Alexandra's and the Queen Mum's. That last one was one ugly dress - but typical of the 1920s while the others were grand affairs.
