I so agree with you. Did you know allegedly PA's other great love is lighthouses.

It is interesting to read where all royal wedding dresses have ended up in... they are, after all, a fascinating legacy!

In the Royal Palace of Aranjuez there is a "Life at the Palace" museum, with objects ranging from clothes to fans to carriages of various Kings and Queens since Felipe V. There are two rooms devoted to the reign of Juan Carlos I, including the wedding dresses of Queen Letizia, Queen Sofía, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, morning suits and military uniforms worn by the King and his father at important events during King Juan Carlos reign...I don't know what will happen to these things and the museum once they open the Museum of Royal Collections next to the Royal Palace in downtown Madrid.

Some photos of the wedding dresses:
