Wedding Wednesday: Princess Margaret’s Wedding Dress

Her Dress

HRH Princess Margaret and Anthony Armstrong-Jones

May 6, 1960

Princess Margaret chose Royal designer Normal Hartnell – the same designer who made Queen Elizabeth’s Wedding Gown and Coronation Gown. This wedding was the first Royal Wedding ever televised. The Wedding was seen by over 300 million people worldwide.


White silk organza with a satin-bound silk tulle veil and not a stitch of embroidery in sight. The whole design was made to accommodate the princess's short stature, including the tiara:


The Poltimore tiara, as discussed yesterday was made in 1870 for Lady Poltimore. Which was bought specially for Margaret. Her children sold this tiara after Margaret’s death in 2002.
