The dress is so beautiful yet looks litterally brown/yellow! What a shame. Is there no way to preserve a dress? Beatrix's dress doesn't even look that bad, and she was married not to long after Grace.....

Maybe it's the poor lighting that makes Grace's dress look in worse condition than it really is? You would think that as the Princess of Monaco and a formerly glamorous Hollywood actress, someone would've taken care to preserve Grace's dress.

I will agree with you on that one. I am also surprised that her dress was displayed in Philly, when I thought that it should have been displayed in Monaco.

I know that!

maybe many people wanted see Princess Grace's wedding dress display at Philly or Monaco because many people would never see Princess Grace's wedding dress for long times! her friends and family wanted to kept dress in Philly!

Great photos, Chanel! Yes, the gentleman is showing off the tiara that Grace wore to the pre-wedding ball held in honor of Princess Caroline (1978). I do not remember seeing Grace wear that tiara at any other function except for Caroline's pre-wedding ball.

Thank You Julia. I would have never guessed. I don't know all that much about the Monaco jewels, so that is neat to know.

Princess Diana's wedding dress on display in Japan, 2002.

Princess Diana's dress etc. was exhibited in the Takashimaya department store, Japan in 2002. It was the first exhibition that her wedding dress was exhibited in countries except for Britain. The number of exhibits was about 100.
i didnt know that borrowed Diana's famous wedding dresses to Japan! and many people in Britain never knew that Diana's famous wedding dresses bring to Japan for show!

her wedding dresses belong to Britain her brother who owner the museum have permission for borrowed of his sister's famous wedding dresses.

For the British wedding dresses, are the tiaras on the wax figures real? If they aren't real, I must say they are very well-made!!

Also are the sashes and orders real?

I saw the dresses at Kensington Palace in June 2002. You can see the change in styles from Victoria to the current queens dress. Victoria and Alexandra 's dresses look rather plain compared to the others. HM Queen Elizabeth's dress is stunning with all the embroidering. It was a pleasure to see them up close and they all looked to be in wonderful condition.

I was wondering if there were any other photos of the wedding dresses being put on display from other sites. Because I can't see the photos Catherine Bergeyck, sara1981 posted. I couldn't see the ones of Princess Mary's dress either...and I would love to see them! Could anyone perhaps guide me to another site or show me how to see those photos?

I'm not sure, but i belive that Aranjuez Palace has a room here royal wedding dresses are displayed. So, it's likely that Letizia wedding dress go there
