Royal wedding fans rejoice: Plans are being made to put Meghan Markle’s wedding dress on display to the public.
According to the Daily Express, sources inside the Palace say the dress will be displayed at Windsor Castle, where His and Her Royal Highness wed on May 19. While details have yet to be confirmed, officials are apparently in discussions about making the Givenchy gown the centerpiece of an exhibition by the end of the year.
For her ceremony, Markle wore a bespoke gown crafted by British designer Clare Waight Keller, who is at the helm of the luxury label and became the first female artistic director in the history of the French fashion house. Keller told InStyle that designing the dress was “very collaborative” and “genuinely one of the most special experiences I have ever had.”
While seemingly simple, the A-line gown with a wide boatneck, long sleeves, sculpted waist, and triple silk organza underskirt was the epitome of elegance. Fashion expert Dawn Del Russo told Money magazine that haute couture gowns like this can be priced as high as $340,000.

Floating pumpkins, special treats, and spooky decor. In the Harry Potter series, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry transforms into a Halloween wonderland each October. With the help of Hagrid and his massive pumpkins, the school gets into the spirit of the holiday, and for just three nights this year, fans will have another chance to celebrate the season in true Potter fashion – on the actual sets of the movie.
The Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is hosting a special event on Oct. 26, 27, and 28, when brave witches and wizards will be able to toast Halloween and Hogwarts in real life. After sipping on dry ice cocktails and canapés, guests will enter the Great Hall. The ceilings will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, and the long tables will be laden “with a Halloween feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.”
After dinner and drinks around props from the movie, attendees will be invited to “follow the spiders” on the set of the Forbidden Forest part of the tour, where they’ll have dessert alongside Buckbeak and Aragog.
But it’s not all fun and games for guests! Death Eaters will be roaming around all evening, and they’ll even been dressed in original costumes from the movies! Party goers will be able to explore the Studio Tour after hours, and will have the chance to meet members of the prop department who will be revealing some filmmaking secrets.
The tickets are a steep $325 (240 British pounds), and go on sale, Aug. 28. While we wait with our alarms set, we can dream of delicious desserts and Butterbeer while planning our own epic Harry Potter-themed bash.
