When Prince Harry announced his marriage to Meghan Markle, there was a ton of speculation about just what kind of wedding dress her royal highness-to-be would choose. Would she opt for an elegant Alexander McQueen gown, like Kate Middleton? Or might she choose a piece that paid homage to Harry's late mother, Princess Diana? Others wondered if she'd go a completely different route and choose something totally untraditional to celebrate the spirit of her union. In the end, she seemed to find a happy medium between classic and contemporary with her choice of a stunning Givenchy gown. Like many of her bridal predecessors, Markle's wedding attire was meant to be remembered in the context of royal history, so let's take a look back at all the recent regal wedding gowns, starting with the worst and working our way back up to the best…

Which dress was best?
Kate’s. Although I quite liked Princess Anne’s too (reminded me of Princess Leia, maybe Princess Anne’s dress inspired Leia’s) and Camilla’s.
Hilary Colls proud for what??? Choosing a dress??? 😂😂😂
Kate s one
Kate’s.. picture perfect dress and kate is so divinely beautiful.
Diana, Princess of Wales wedding gown was fitting for the time in 1981. That is 38 yrs. ago and although styles do changes, Diana’s wedding gown will always be a timeless beautiful gown and part of history.
@Lyric BQ Can’t be any more of a mess than you. Just because someone else’s opinion differs from yours does not necessarily make it wrong. News flash: Not everyone’s style or preferences have to match yours . The world will not end if it doesn’t.
That dress of Diana’s rocked
@NIcholas Bilski …..yes and there was a world-wide-gasp when she stepped out in a dress which looked like it had just been through a spin-dryer……and she knew it trying to smooth all the horrible creases out.
I guess the Emmanuels didn’t ‘t get many job-offers after THAT disastrous faux pas
@Margo it was not a nightmare, a nightmare is avacado green, harvest orange and the ugly brown from the 70s anything in the 1970s was hideous. The ugly denim jeans and those type bell bottoms and platform shoes. I’ve seen brides maid dresses that looked like the 70s wallpaper from a trailer house in that era. Princess Diana’s was a style heading into the 1980s she was absolutely beautiful.
@Trish Baum It was the bad style yhen. Not all wedding dresses were a such nightmare
Kate’s dress I think was the best. It was elegant, modern, classical and royal. 👌💐
Kate’s dress was beautiful, my favorite.
Sorry not a patch on Grace Kelly’s dress.
She liked Grace Kelly ‘s Gown. It was beautiful.
Kate’s dress was stunningly beautiful, not over the top at all. I couldn’t stop looking at it. Bravo Kate!
She was beautiful that day; however, the bouquet was so tiny and out of proportion. Maybe that’s a tradition in their country.
Diana was so shy and beautiful
She could have worn a dress from Walmart and the people would still have adored her. She loved the people and I think she looked as lovely as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth did all those years ago. God Bless the Queen. To this day, she’s beautiful Everytime she
Is presented anywhere. I have always loved her.
Duchess of Cambridge, no doubt!
Kate’s dress was the best, agreed but Princess Diana’s wasn’t ‘worst’.
@Rainbow Moonchild NOP. It was elegant
diana’s dress was awful
I don’t really know how it sound when i say such thing here, I’ve been searching for help on how to get rid of my ex lover that broke up with me 5 months ago and scamming me of my hard earn money .. I was traumatized by the incidence and nearly wanted to commit suicide because i was left with nothing but i thank God that i got the contact of Ogbeifun the spiritual father that helped me to get ride of my ex lover that scammed me after much searching of help from different places. When i got in touch with Dr Ogbeifun, i explained everything to him and he gave me his words of encouragement and told me what i wanted, if i need him back or i need revenge and i told him i want him dead because the wicked must not go unpunished so Ogbeifun help me cast a death spell on him and within 48 hours my ex lover was found dead in his apartment with a suicide note and since that day i became a happy woman and now i have regain all that i have lost in the past with the help of Dr Ogbeifun. If you need any assistance whatsoever like getting cured from sickness, getting pregnant, spell of various type E.T.C. Then, I suggest that you get in touch with Lord noble now through his Email ID: ogbefunhearlingtemple@ gmail. com call or add him on whatsapp +2348102574680
Elizabeth Brower If sacks are like that then I would definitely like that dress
@Rainbow Moonchild yes megs dress was awful.
Kate’s dress was the best, hands down.
Diana’s dress was THE dress of that decade, a show stopper and everything you expected of that era. Sarah’s was beautiful with the A on the train. Kate’s was elegant and Princess Margaret was another personal fave. Eugenie’s was a modern Princess with that lovely back! Meghan’s was boring, very simple and not flattering.
@Claudia Meghans was ill fitting.
@sedekiman r that was the 80’s for ya.
@sedekiman r it was so plain, like she didn’t have a whole lot of thought about it beforehand. I do think it was elegant.
Agree not flattering made her shoulders like a full -back.
@Heldor I was surprised it was white and a with a veil..
Fergie’s dress is pretty nice for an 80s wedding.
Kate’s was the best.
Diana’s dress might not be good in 2018 but it was amazing in 1980s
It certainly was amazing then and set up a kind of standard for the “fairy tale princess wedding gown”. But I can’t remember what I thought about it at the time. Probably that it was a bit too much. It certainly engulfed her in a huge white cloud, pretty prophetic in a way of how she would be engulfed in a disastrous marriage. And did set the pattern for the terrible ” huge meringue” look so many brides chose afterwards, whether they could pull it off or not. Diana could pull it off, just barely.
Just remember that it was the choice of a 19 year old girl who thought she was living her fairy tale dream of marrying her prince charming… The dress reflected that fairy tale element, in over the top 80s style ! It’s a shame the designer picked such a wrinkly taffetas though, as evidenced by the state the dress was in when Diana stepped out of the carriage.
I didn’t like it then either. It was way too much and swallowed her.
I watched Diana’s wedding in real time. I was in my early 20s and I was appalled. It looked like a big ruffled balloon with no redeeming qualities. It was over the top in a horrific way. It was the sort of dress I would expect a working-class girl to think was a princess dress, but Diana was an aristocrat from a very long line of aristocrats.
No, I watched that wedding and thought it was horrible on the day she married. It looked like a crumpled mess when she got out of that car to go in the church. All you saw was wrinkles..I can remember the female commentators on TV gushing over it, and I thought this is a good example of the lesson in that fable called “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. The dress was putrid then and still is today.
No it wasn’t, not for people of taste. Very young women loved it and those whose taste was nurtured by Bollywood but it was way, way over the top and I recall viewing the wedding on the tv and shuddering at the crassness of that dress. Her style changed and evolved over the years but at the time she was young and her taste had not as yet developed for simple lines and the adage that less is more.
Kate’s was the best🤗
Kate was the best, classy, elegant sophisticate…just perfect. ❤️
I personally yhink that princess euginue’s dress was the most beautiful.
She looked like Princess Aurora and that emerald in her tiara brought out her green eyes perfectly.
So did I, and Eugiene’s was classical beauty too.
Princess Diana’s bridal gown was absolutely magnificent. I was a perfect fit for a princess!
I like the wedding dress of kate simple, elegant, comfortable to wear and Beautiful…
Eugenie’s dress isn’t even on the list and I think it’s spot would be right before Kate’s. It was so simple and beautiful.
I love Princes Eugenie’s wedding party dress. So gorgeous.
Almost identical to First Lady Michelle Obama’s Wedding dress .
Google it, it looks exactly like Eugenie’s, especially the neckline.
I agree and would say it’s even prettier than Kates.
It would be definitely before Kate. Eugenie’s dress was just stunning.
Eugenie‘s Wedding dress wasn‘t there because the documantation was in Mai‘18 and seh was married in October‘18
I remember watching Princess Anne’s wedding on TV ( possibly before the inexperienced commentator of this video was born!) and it was elegant, regal and really quite stunning.
Kate’s dress fit her beautifully
Diana’s & Kate’s dresses were the best and these two princess always have elegance. Their beauty is out of the world.
I do agree that Kate”s was the most beautiful but I don’t agree that Diana”s was the worst. It was gorgeous in its time.
If I’m not mistaken, Diana’s actually inspired many brides with her style of dress so you’re correct to say it was an epic dress of the time
@Donna Brown too big on her but otherwise classy!
@Barbara Marafiote meoooow!
I agree it was so soo soo gorgeous at that time!♡
