News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - 29th July 1981 – As the entire nation rejoiced in the wedding of Charles and Diana, the newly crowned
Princess of Wales waved to the crowds outside Buckingham Palace in her stunning ivory wedding dress.
Lying behind the scenes was the duplicate dress Princess Diana had tried on in case of any mishaps on the
day – and this dress will be going under the hammer at Cooper Owen’s exciting new auction this December.
After the success of Cooper Owen’s Music Legends auction at Madame Tussauds in October, Cooper
Owen can now offer various artefacts that have been on display at Tussauds throughout the years. From a
Winston Churchill grey pin-striped suit to a Queen Victoria black silk skirt – the auction provides bidders
the chance to own belongings from the icons that have shaped British history.
If one historic royal wedding dress is not enough, a replica of the dress worn by Sarah Ferguson is up for
sale, which was also used as a back up on her wedding day. The ultimate ‘king of cool’ James Dean wowed
the world with his style and sex appeal, and the original vest worn in the hit film Giant will go under the
