Margaret wedding

Princess Margaret in her wedding gown

  • Margaret's silk organza wedding gown was designed by Norman Hartnell, who also designed the Queen's wedding gown. The gown was designed to be simple and sophisticated, with a minimum of beading or other decoration. With it, she wore the Poltimore tiara, which was purchased (it is unclear by whom) for the wedding, and a diamond necklace which originally belonged to Queen Mary, her grandmother.
