Royal Wedding exhibition

Inspired by the upcoming marriage of Prince Harry, Twelfthnight is in the process of re-creating Queen Victoria's white wedding gown for display purposes. This in turn has inspired Prince Jacon to exhibit the Crown Jewels, and me to hunt out paintings of wedding gowns through the ages (the simple white chosen by Victoria was not unheard-of in the early 1800's, but it was rare.) 

Accordingly, on the weekend of May 19 - Victoria Day Weekend in Canada and some other Commonwealth countries, and right after the wedding that triggered all this inspiration -  we will be launching the Royal Wedding exhibition at Buckingham Palace in Antiquity. Stay tuned for details of the opening event!

And the SLURL for the launch, and the exhibit which will be there for an extended period, is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Antiquity%20Texas/203/132/2002

In addition to the Victoria Room, you will find five additional rooms holding the Antiquity Crown Jewels of several courts and periods, and an additional exhibit of wedding portraits (and therefore clothes) through the four centuries prior to Victoria.
