Queen Alexandra's 1863 wedding gown on display. Like her mother-in-law Queen Victoria, Alexandra also had her lace frills removed for reuse, and it appears that the skirt of the gown has been altered into a more narrow shape than the fashionable bell shape of 1863. The bodice however, is unaltered.
