Over 620,000 members of the public attended the display, which focused the gown as its centerpiece, with visitor numbers rising 52 per cent higher than that of the previous year.

Director of the Royal Collection Jonathan said "Unprecedented numbers came to see the Duchess' wedding dress, as the centerpiece of a special display celebrating the role of British design,”

Visitors were also able to see the Robinson Pelham diamond earrings given to Catherine by her parents for the wedding day, as well as her handmade silk shoes and the royal wedding cake designed by Fiona Cairns.
