Thank you, IloveCP; Leitizia's Train was gorgeous; so beautifully circular and full, to match the length. Really gorgeous. On that note, most of the Spanish Royal "Infanta" Bridal Gowns were really beautiful and Royal, with long sweeping gorgeous Trains. See also attached photo.

Katharine Worsley married Prince Edward, Duke of Kent on June 8, 1961.
The church chosen was York Minster.
Katharine and Edward's mother, Princess Marina were concerned about the weight and pull of the train.
John Cavanagh, the designer had to reassure the ladies that the scale would be fitting within York Minster.
Katharine's train was a 15 foot double train. It was edged in satin.

Really? It looks a good 5' shorter than that, if not even shorter.

Yes, I agree. Stephanie de Lannoy's train was a little over 14 feet, and there is no way Madeleine's was longer than hers.

I think Madeleine's veil must have been 19ft long, the train more like half that length.

According to the court, Madeleine's train was four metres long.

The total picture is so important, to me at least.
I love the way that Stephanie de Lannoy's veil was attached. The tiara was, I believe, a sentimental choice, but there is no way it would have supported a veil as long as Stephanie's, hence the innovation and that puppy was firmly anchored!

Well, it may not have been the shortest, the longest, the most historically meaningful, but what it was was romantic.

The drawing was very romantic and quite lovely and surprisingly accurate;

This photo gives an idea of the sheer volume and weight of veil and train;

This shot gives me the idea that perhaps the train is removable;

And this is why I think Stephanie's train was the most beautiful I have seen;

OMG..I don't care how many times I've seen that photo taken from the choir loft of Stephanie entering the Cathedral, it always makes me gasp. So beautiful! It was like Maria in "The Sound of Music".

Stephanie and Madeleine had the most beautiful bridal rear view of any of the recent Royal brides,imo.
