Meghan’s £200,000 wedding gown by Givenchy could go on display to the public at an exhibition at Windsor Castle later this year

Meghan’s £200,000 Givenchy wedding gown is set to go on display at Windsor Castle later this year.

Royal sources say the dress will be on show to the public as part of an exhibition at the Queen’s residence in Berkshire, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in May.

The stunning ivory gown is expected to bring in thousands of visitors to Windsor Castle, in what has already been a bumper year for the attraction.

The Royal Collection Trust, which manages the public openings of the Queen’s official residences, told the Daily Express that any announcements would be made later this year.  

However, a source suggested that an agreement has already been made to put the Givenchy gown on display later this year.

It comes as Windsor Castle has seen a dramatic rise in visitors this summer, thanks to the frenzy over the royal wedding in May.

Bookings have risen by 92 per cent this summer, as tourists flock to the Queen’s residence to see where Prince Harry and Meghan tied the knot. 

It is likely to be a record-breaking year for Windsor Castle, which was visited by 1.4million in 2017 – the second-highest figure for the attraction.

Meanwhile, the interest around the royal residence is only set to continue, as Princess Eugenie and her wine merchant fiance Jack Brooksbank prepare to tie the knot at St George’s Chapel in October.  

A spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust told the Express: ‘It’s fair to say it’s very busy down there.’ 

Meghan, 37, surprised the fashion world in May by choosing Clare Waight Keller, the British artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy, to design her bridal dress.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the sweeping gown with a 16ft-long veil, embroidered with the flowers of all 53 countries of the Commonwealth. 

The Duchess of Sussex later changed into a more contemporary halterneck dress by Stella McCartney for her evening reception at Frogmore House. 

Speaking about designing Meghan’s wedding dress, Waight Keller previously revealed how Prince Harry spoke to her after the ceremony at St George’s Chapel.

‘He came straight up to me and he said “Oh my God, thank you, she looks absolutely stunning”,’ she said.

The Givenchy creative director said Meghan and Harry are just ‘so in love’, adding: ‘They were just radiant at that time.

‘Well I think everybody saw on television – he was absolutely in awe I think. She looked just incredible and it showed.’ 

A spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust told MailOnline: ‘We have nothing to announce at present.’
