Princess Margaret was attended by eight bridesmaids, led by Princess Anne. She wore her hair in a large bun to support her tiara, The Poltimore Tiara, which was a gift from Queen Mary. This diamond tiara can also be worn as a necklace and was later sold in 2006 at Christies for over $1.5 million dollars.The white, silk wedding gown was designed by Norman Hartnell who also designed the Queen's coronation gown and wedding gown. The dress is one of my favorite royal wedding dresses; it's classic, simple and elegant with a V neckline and long slim sleeves and looks as good today as I'm sure it did then.
