The British Royals' Gowns Revisited In New Exhibition

Do you love classic royal fashion, but can't afford to buy it? Well, this summer you'll be able to take a close look at the classic dresses of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Princess Diana in their natural habitat.

Kensington Palace will present the trio's dresses in an exhibition this summer entitled “Fashion Rules: Dress From the Collections of HM The Queen, Princess Margaret, and Diana, Princess of Wales.”

Between Elizabeth, Margaret and Diana, the collection, curated by Cassie Davies-Strodder, will cover fashions ranging from the 1950s to the 1990s. "Elegant dress displays will explore how these royal figures were representative of the spirit of each decade, reflecting and inspiring everyday fashions," Historic Royal Palaces, the charity sponsoring the showcase, said in a press release.

"Fashion Rules" will offer viewers “to get up close to these wonderful dresses and be transported to the times in which they were worn," Davies-Strodder tempts. The exhibition will open to the public on July 4 at Kensington Palace.
