and Antony Armstrong-Jones wed on May 6, 1960, at Westminster Abbey.

The wedding was spectacular as it was the first to be televised to the public.

Although the Countess of Snowdon wore a fabulous royal tiara that she purchased herself, and she also showed off her rose-shaped engagement ring, her wedding dress was equally gorgeous.

Daena Borrowman, the Marketing Manager at jewellerybox spoke to to explain the design behind Margaret’s stunning wedding dress.

She said: “Princess Margaret was truly a maverick all her life and her wedding day was no different.

“Though she looked every bit the iconic English rose that the world saw her be, she stayed true to herself by adding her own unconventional twist to the details of her special day.

“Princess Margaret’s wedding dress has gone on to become one of the most iconic royal wedding gowns owing to its classic timelessness.

“Her long-sleeved silk organza Norman Hartnell gown featured a voluminous skirt made of over 30 metres of fabric.
