Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress will soon be back on display in her former home.

From June 3 to January 2, the famous gown will feature in “Royal Style in the Making,” a Kensington Palace exhibit which “explores the fine art of designing for royalty,” per the palace website.

The ornate puff-sleeved gown from Diana and Prince Charles’ 1981 nuptials boasts the longest train in royal history, featuring 25 feet of glittering sequins.

This exhibition will mark the gown’s first public display at Kensington Palace since 1995.

Diana’s sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, reportedly both agreed to lend the dress to Historic Royal Palaces for the exhibit, where it will be displayed alongside a working pattern for the Queen Mother’s coronation gown.

Princess Di’s wedding dress has captured imaginations and sparked replicas for decades, including a version worn by Emma Corrin in Season 4 of Netflix’s “The Crown.” 

While Kristen Stewart is currently embodying Diana’s sense of style for the highly anticipated film “Spencer,” the upcoming project doesn’t seem set to include the memorable gown.

Centering on the relationship between designers and the monarchy, the palace’s display will also include sketches, fabric swatches and never-before-seen images from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection.

While the exhibition features designs worn by “three generations of royal women,” all of the pieces once “helped shape the public image of the British monarchy and propelled the British fashion industry onto the global stage.”

The show will take place in the Kensington Gardens’ Orangery, which was built in the early 1700s and recently restored.
