History’s most famous royal wedding dresses in the spotlight

Royal Wedding Dresses Banner

They are the stuff of dreams and become instantly memorable but many of the most famous royal weddings dresses in history have far more interesting stories behind them than that. From a bride forced to put aside her dream dress for political reasons to a gown that was designed to inspire a nation to look to the future, these outfits are as symbolic as they are personal.

In this new podcast, the Royal Central team discuss the most iconic royal wedding dresses in this special podcast and reveal why a major exhibition of all the House of Windsor’s most famous gowns might not be possible.

You can find all our podcasts on our special Podbean page as well as on your usual podcast provider. And we also share them all on our You Tube Channel which has lots more royal content for you to enjoy.
