I watched "Queen Victoria: The World's Most Photographed" on YouTube, and it looks as though Victoria and Albert were reenacting their wedding as part of a picture book to "sell" themselves to the public.

For real?! I never imagined Victoria and Albert doing such thing. Thanks for the info!

That is her wedding dress indeed. At least I always found it labelled like that.

I believed we discussed it once before--though I don't know if the discussion survived the software change awhile back. I think it was agreed then that it was not her wedding dress. It was 'just' a court gown. Perhaps for Vicky's wedding? I can't remember what was decided. Does anyone else remember this discussion?

Also, notice that in one of the pictures, QV is wearing a very heavy-looking set of earrings. In the other, they are off. Probably the weight was just too much for those long photo sessions!

I recall this was taken at Vicky's wedding in 1858.

But she s wearing it years later her marriage? That picture is from mids 1850s or so =S

BTW, here s another picture of the session, It CANT be Victoria`s wedding! look how "old" looks the couple (at least to have  both 21), plus, photography wasnt massive, even in  royalty, back in 1840



In Helmut and Alison Gernsheim's groundbreaking pictoral biography of Queen Victoria, which shows this photograph (reversed) and photos of both Albert and Victoria separately, it is captioned as Queen Victoria in court dress and Prince Albert in Field-Marshall's uniform after a drawing room at Buckingham Palace, photograph by Roger Fenton, 11 May 1854.  The dress is quite different from that which she wore at her wedding which had a single deep lace flounce and was all white, including the train, while her train here seems clearly coloured and her skirt has two shorter flounces caught up with flowers.

Queen Victoria's wedding dress



Her court dress on 11 May 1854.  And yes, the earrings are off.
