If you loved Meghan Markle's custom Givenchy wedding dress, you might be able to see it up close by the end of the year. According to the Daily Express, Palace officials are already discussing making the gown the focus of an exhibit at Windsor Castle

 

The outlet also reported that the Royal Collection Trust, the body that oversees attractions hosted at all of the Queen's official residences, would make the official announcement in the upcoming months. The exact details haven't been confirmed, but if the Givenchy gown goes on display, it could bring a record number of visitors to the castle. The estate, however, is an attraction itself—it was the Duchess of Sussex's wedding venue back in May and will also host Princess Eugenie's October nuptials.

Markle's simple, but structured silk wedding dress, created by British designer Clare Waight Keller, featured a boat-neck neckline and three-quarter sleeves. Following the gown's debut, Keller told People that the design process was very collaborative. "We exchanged conversations about what would be the ultimate lines and proportions and the scale of the dress," she said on Markle's involvement, adding that "over time we quickly got to a point where she knew exactly what she wanted, having tried on some mock-ups that I had shown her. And then it evolved into the final design."

 

This won't be the first time that a royal wedding dress is put on display. Kate Middleton's lace gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (and the tiara she borrowed from Queen Elizabeth on her big day) was part of a special exhibition at Buckingham Palace in 2011, which drew over 350,000 people.
