Queen Letizia’s wedding dress with gold embroidery was pricier than Kate’s | Royal | News


Queen Letizia and King Felipe got married in 2004 and she sported an embroidered gold wedding dress for the occasion.

Said to be one of the most remembered weddings of all time, the bride’s dress was designed by Spanish designer Manuel Pertegaz.

It featured a high-standing collar, long sleeves, a V-neck and over four metres of circular train.

It was finished with gold embroidery depicting the fleur de lys and ears of wheat, details from the Prince of Asturias crest.

The Queen’s wedding dress was thought to be worth a staggering £6million, one of the most expensive royal dresses of all time.

She accessorised the look with a diamond tiara, gifted to her by her mother-in-law Queen Sofia.

Known as the Prussian Tiara, Queen Sofia also wore the headpiece on her wedding day to King Juan Carlos in 1962.

Letizia also wore a pair of drop diamond earrings also from Sofia and Juan and a pair of shoes made by Spanish shoe designer Pura Lopez.

The pair tied the knot in Madrid, and the ceremony welcomed more than 1,000 guests, including her bridesmaids Victoria Codorniu and Claudia González, who wore much more traditional gowns by Spanish designer Lorenzo Caprile.

Their dresses featured lace-up corset bodices with square necklines and long skirts.

Another royal who has an expensive dress was Kate Middleton who tied the knot with Prince William in 2011.

For her wedding day, Kate stunned in a gorgeous lace gown which has been replicated by brands ever since.

It was created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, a designer brand that the Duchess is a huge fan of.

It is said that the royal worked closely with the British brand to create her perfect dress.

On the wedding day, the palace revealed in a statement that Kate “wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work”.
