In a manner bound to bring memories of many page-turners set in tumultuous Tudor times, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress is being exhibited on a headless mannequin.
The Alexander MQueen-designed dress is being shown on a headless mannequin in the ballroom at Buck Palace. The tiara and veil the Duchess wore at her wedding are suspended, halo-like, above it.
How ghostly can you get! And none less that Her Majesty the Queen agrees. She reportedly described the set-up as “creepy” during a private tour of the exhibit. She was also heard to utter the words “horrible” and “horrid.”
Surely the shades of remote beheaded ancestors were listening. And nodding – if they could.
