According to The Sun, “The Queen’s wedding dress was made from ivory silk satin and was embroidered with star lilies and orange blossoms. It was also adorned with 10,000 seed pearls and cost a reported £30,000 at the time and took seven weeks to make. It was designed by royal couturier Norman Hartnell and one of the Queen’s bridesmaids, Lady Pamela Hicks, previously said of the dress: ‘With her bridal dress and tiara on her wedding day, she was a knockout.'”

Even the popular Netflix series The Crown will halt production to pay its respects to Queen Elizabeth II.
