Prince Harry’s HRH’s title will be dropped from Diana’s wedding dress exhibition and it seems as though a lot of people have got a lot to say about the outright snub…

The news comes after Princess Diana’s wedding dress exhibition went live last week.

But the drama surrounding the display has overshadowed what was supposed to be a tribute to The People’s Princess.

Now, the iconic dress came about after Diana started dating Charles in 1977…

At the young age of twenty, Lady Diana Spencer became the world’s obsession when it was revealed she was dating the future King of England, Prince Charles.

The pair married on July 29th, 1981, at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The wedding, which today remains as one of the most infamous ceremonies in modern history, was watched by over 750 million people around the world, watching her get married to the man she loved.

But there’s one thing that stood out the most on the special occasion…

And that’s her iconic wedding dress.

The gown was designed by prestigious British designers, Elizabeth and David Emanuel…

And it was made with an ivory silk taffeta and antique lace gown, with a twenty-five-foot train and a 153-yard tulle veil.

After making its debut at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1981, the gown became one of the most famous in the world…

And it continues to be one of the most recognized wedding dresses ever to this very day.

The dress hasn’t been seen in public for decades…

But now, fans of the late princess will soon be able to get a glimpse of the stunning gown because both William and Harry have given their permission to have their mom’s gown included as the centerpiece of a new temporary exhibition called Royal Style in the Making, opening on June 3rd in the Orangery of Kensington Palace.

According to Vanity Fair, this will be the first time the wedding gown will be on display there since the princess was in residence…

And the show will examine the relationship between fashion designers and their royal clients throughout the years.

Matthew Storey, the exhibition curator at Historic Royal Palaces, said in a statement:

“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.”

He went on:

“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 twenty-five years – we’ve got some real surprises up our sleeve for fashion fans!”

Elizabeth Emanuel told People that getting to visit her creation at the exhibition, “will be like seeing an old friend after all these years.”

“I was looking at the images again today and I can’t believe how many sequins we sewed onto the dress. This is going to be a wonderful exhibition,” she said.​

Regardless of how wonderful it was meant to be…

Other little details from the display, such as the removal of Prince Harry’s HRH title, have overshadowed what was supposed to be a momentous tribute to The People’s Princess.

“Lent by HRH [his royal highness] the Duke of Cambridge and HRH the Duke of Sussex”, the panel under the dress currently reads.

But according to multiple outlets, the title before Harry’s name will be dropped, with officials citing that its inclusion was nothing but an “administrative error.”

This news adds to the sensitivities of an already-tense situation as it was agreed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could retain their HRH titles.

But the couple has personally chosen not to use them.

This is a vast contrast from what happened to Harry’s late mother, as she was fully stripped of her title after divorcing Prince Charles back in 1996.

But as others have stated a title means nothing if the right people aren’t holding them.
