The Wedding dress of Princess Margaret, the sister of Queen Elizabeth II, was worn at her wedding to photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones on May 6, 1960 at Westminster Abbey.

The dressEdit

The wedding dress was designed by Norman Hartnell, the favoured couturier of the royals and was made from silk organza, and a skirt made from some 30 meters of fabric. Hartnell specifically kept the adornments of the dress such as the crystal embellishments and beading to a minimum in order to suit Margaret's petite frame.

Vogue described the dress as "stunningly tailored", although the dress has been said to be "a study in simplicity, the upper part consisting of light transparent silk". In 1960, Life magazine named it "the simplest royal wedding gown in history", although it has been described as one of Hartnell's most beautiful and sophisticated pieces.

The dress now belongs to the British Royal Collection and is part of a display of royal wedding dresses at Kensington Palace in London.
