Prince William and Prince Harry have allowed for the dress to be seen at a new royal exhibit called Royal Style in the Making, which launches on June 3 until January 2, and examines "the intimate relationship between fashion designer and royal client," the website reads

"Our summer exhibition at Kensington Palace will shine a spotlight on some of the greatest talents of British design, whose work has been instrumental in shaping the visual identity of the royal family across the twentieth century," Matthew Storey, exhibition curator at Historic Royal Palaces, said in a statement.

He continued, "We'll be exploring how the partnership between each designer and client worked, and revealing the process behind the creation of a number of the most important couture commissions in royal history. While one of the highlights will undoubtedly be Diana, Princess of Wales's show-stopping Emanuel designed wedding dress, which goes on show at the palace for the first time in 25 years – we've got some real surprises up our sleeve for fashion fans!"

Diana wore the dress when she married Prince Charles on July 29, 1981. The frock — which was designed and created by Elizabeth and David Emanuel — featured a scoop neckline with a collar and puff sleeves, in addition to bows and a 25 foot train.

The dress hasn't been on display at Kensington Palace — where Diana previously lived — since 1995. "It will be like seeing an old friend after all these years," Elizabeth gushed. "I was looking at the images again today and I can't believe how many sequins we sewed on to the dress. This is going to be a wonderful exhibition."

The last time Elizabeth saw the gown was when it was displayed at Diana's childhood home, Althorp, in an exhibition that opened in July 1998 — almost one year after her tragic death.
