Katharine Worsley, 90, married Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, 87, on June 8, 1961, at York Minster.
The new Duchess of Kent wore a wedding dress designed by the Irish designer John Cavanagh.
This decision was made on the advice of Princess Marina, Prince Edward’s mother, as Mr Cavanagh had trained under Edward Molyneux, the designer of her own wedding gown from 1934.
The dress was made of 217 metres of white patterned silk, featuring a high scooped neckline, long sleeves and a fitted waist.
The full skirt was covered at the back by a 15-foot double train. However, there was also a hidden feature in the dress that hardly anyone knew about at the time.
