Today we visit Kensington Palace, London. Visit the brand new exhibition, Royal Style in the Making.

 

As Kensington Palace reopens to visitors, a new temporary exhibition set in the newly-conserved historic Orangery will explore the unique relationship between fashion designer and royal client. Titled Royal Style in the Making, the display will feature never-before-seen items from the archives of some of the most celebrated royal couturiers of the 20th century, set alongside examples of the glittering gowns and stylish tailoring created for three generations of royal women.

 

Among the star items going on display will be a rare surviving toile for the 1937 coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother; consort of King George VI. Created by London based court designer Madame Handley-Seymour - a favoured couturier of the dowager Queen Mary with an innate understanding of the rules and tradition of royal dress – the silk satin gown with its golden national emblems was the perfect choice to embody continuity at the start of an unexpected new reign. The toile is an extraordinary full-size working pattern of the completed gown and features the stunning design for the embroidery hand-painted onto it, highlighting the attention to detail required in planning for such an important state occasion.

 

Visitors will also be able to experience Diana, Princess of Wales’s wedding dress displayed complete with its spectacular sequin encrusted train, which at 25 feet dramatically filled the aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral, and remains the longest in royal history.

 

From 01 October 2021, the King’s Drawing Room, the Cupola Room and Queen Caroline’s Closet will be closed for maintenance work. The Red Saloon will be open, however scaffolding may be in place throughout the room.

 

  • Coach only = £30.00

  • Entrance & Coach Fare = Adult £50.00, Senior (65 yrs+) £46.00, Child (5-15yrs) £40.00
