London, July 19 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Buckingham Palace has announced that Kate Middleton’s wedding gown became the star attraction during last year’s exhibition at the palace. The Sarah Burton bridal gown attracted more than 600,000 people to the exhibition and that fetched the organizers a whopping £10 million in ticket sales.

Speaking about the exhibition, Director of the Royal Collection Jonathan Marsdon told reporters that the event was the “best possible start” for 2012.

Mardson was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying that, “Unprecedented numbers came to see the duchess’s wedding dress, as the centrepiece of a special display celebrating the role of British design.”

The 73-day exhibition was not only about Kate’s wedding dress. The wedding day earrings and the shoes that the Duchess of Cambridge wore on the wedding day also went on display during the event. The wedding cake and the Cartier tiara that the Queen borrowed to her have were also on display at the exhibition.

During the private tour at the palace just before the exhibition was opened to the public, the Queen famously described the handless mannequin as horrible, horrid and very creepy.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married last year during a ceremony which was watched by millions of people worldwide.
