Royal Women

Wives and daughters, sisters and mothers; none of the Royal women featured in the exhibition was monarch; yet each played a key role in the British monarchy. Royal Women will be a ‘family tree’ exhibition looking at the clothes worn by Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and Princess Margaret. Exhibition highlights include Alexandra, Princess of Wales’ wedding dress, dating from 1863, on loan from the Royal Collection, generously lent by Her Majesty The Queen. Also on display is an an ensemble of gold and pale green velvet, worn by Queen Mary to the wedding of her granddaughter, Princess Elizabeth. A selection of royal accessories complement the fashions presented in the exhibition. The fascinating stories behind the dresses and the choice of colour, cut or style can tell us much about Alexandra, Mary, Elizabeth, and Margaret, and how they chose to present themselves as royal women.
