It will be displayed with the silk five-metre-long veil which was held in place by a diamond and platinum bandeau tiara, presented to Meghan by the Queen, and a replica of the bridal bouquet made from artificial flowers for the exhibition.

Harry’s wedding outfit was a frock coat uniform of the Household Cavalry (the Blues and Royals), specially commissioned for the occasion and made by tailors at Dege and Skinner on Savile Row.

Harry says: “I chose the frock coat as a uniform, with permission from my grandmother, because I think it’s one of the smartest Household Cavalry uniforms.

“It’s one of my favourites, and I was very fortunate to be able to wear that on the day.”

Another display of the exhibition will include Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s page and bridesmaid outfits.

In the recording, Meghan adds: “A great level of detail went into the planning of our wedding day.

“We knew how large the scale of the event would be, so in making choices that were really personal and meaningful, it could make the whole experience feel intimate.”

The exhibition runs until October 6, with tickets and information available on the Royal Collection Trust website.
