About Royal Wedding Dresses Through Time

Royal wedding dresses have captivated people for centuries with their mix of symbolism, craftsmanship and elegance. Join Caroline de Guitaut, curator of 'A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex' exhibition, as she looks back at dresses from the 19th century to the present day. The talk will be followed by a chance to see The Duchess of Sussex's wedding dress in a private view of the exhibition. A glass of complimentary wine will served in the shop after the talk.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Royal Wedding Dresses Through Time are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
