The gown looks almost a replica of what Princess Diana originally at her wedding on July 29, 1981. The dress is created by costume designer Amy Roberts who wanted to capture the same spirit and style of David & Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, without creating a replica.
This year, Netflix’s long-running series bagged the Emmy Outstanding Period Costumes for costume designers Amy Roberts and Sidonie Roberts.
Earlier in an interview, Corrin revealed that it took 10 people to hold and to provide their help while filming this particular scene for ‘The Crown’. The princess’s original dress had 10,000 pearls and a 25-foot train.
The new season is all set to arrive in November and will star Olivia Colman as the Queen and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip.
