Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Makes Millions!
Kate Middleton's wedding dress has made the Royal Family a whopping £10 million in ticket sales, after becoming the main attraction of a Buckingham Palace exhibition last year.
Kate Middleton's Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen wedding dress went on display for 73 days at Buckingham Palace and was seen by a total of 626,678 people, a figure Royal Collection director Jonathan Marsden called "unprecedented".
Visitors also got to see the Duchess's Robinson Pelham diamond earrings (a wedding day gift from her parents), as well as her handmade silk shoes, a replica of her wedding cake, and even the Cartier tiara she borrowed from the Queen.
The Queen famously described the headless mannequin that displayed the wedding dress as 'horrid', and 'very creepy' as she accompanied the Duchess on a private tour of the exhibition before its public opening.
We guess not everybody thought so!
