The Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress is to go on display at Buckingham Palace, it was announced today.

The Sarah Burton creation for Alexander McQueen will be on show during the summer opening of Buckingham Palace between July 23 and October 3, the Royal Collection said.

The Duchess's veil, tiara and wedding shoes and the diamond earrings she wore on her wedding day will also form part of the display.

William and Kate's wedding cake, created by cake designer Fiona Cairns, will be shown in the State Dining Room to complement the wedding dress exhibition.

The intricately-decorated gown worn by the Duchess received widespread praise and was the focus of intense interest for millions of viewers in the UK and worldwide who watched the royal wedding at Westminster Abbey on April 29.
