ROYAL WEDDINGS AT WINDSOR CASTLE

October may not be known typically as wedding season, but it is for us this year. Princess Eugenie is marrying Mr Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel on 12 October, and just a few weeks later on 26 October the outfits from our first royal wedding of the year, between Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle, will be on display at Windsor Castle.

TRAIL

Royal wedding dresses through the ages

With Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank’s wedding taking place soon, we take a look back at dresses which former brides chose for their own wedding day.

Often the dress worn by the bride is reflective of contemporary fashion and the bride’s personal style, we see this not only in The Duchess of Sussex’s simple elegant gown for her May wedding, but also further back in history, when Queen Victoria wore a plain court dress with a lace flounce.

See the dresses.
