Princess Diana’s wedding dress designer was ‘HORRIFIED’ by gown –‘Felt faint’

PRINCESS DIANA’S wedding dress designer was “horrified” when she saw the gown on the day of her wedding to Prince Charles.

Elizabeth Emanuel also admitted that she “felt faint” when she saw the final product on 29 July 1981. Ms Emanuel told ITV’s Invitation to the Royal Wedding in 2018 that she had noticed some creasing in the dress.

It was reported to have cost up to £9,000 and the couple kept the design secret until the last moment.

The dress had more than 10,000 pearls and fabrics such as tulle.

It also had netting in the sleeves and veil including a 25 foot long silk train.

Unfortunately, there was so much detail and different designs in the dress that it became creased on the journey to St Paul’s Cathedral where Ms Emanuel first saw it on the big day.

During a dress rehearsal for the wedding both Charles and Diana had worn different materials compared to the actual wedding day.

David Emanuel told People that the designers had insisted on keeping the gown a secret until the wedding day.

He also explained that they made a backup just in case anything went wrong.

He said: “We wanted to make sure that we had something there; it was for our own peace of mind, really.”
