HRH The Prince of Asturias and Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano
May 22, 2004
I have been slowly working my way through the most notable wedding gowns in royal history since this site began, but there are still some massive holes in our coverage. One very notable omission: Princess Letizia's wedding dress. Her birthday is this week so let's just take care of that, shall we?
Because the train isn't detachable, it pulls on the front of her skirt as she moves (she starts her walk down the aisle at about 3:17 in the video above). You can really see the effort involved with walking here; the bride, such a tiny thing to start with, looks like she's wading through a flood of fabric to get to her groom.
What did you think of Letizia's wedding gown?
