The neckline was a wide-neck V shape, which folded around the shoulders into a low back and showed off the scars from Eugenie's childhood surgery, something which she previously said she wanted to make a part of her day.

"During several fittings the dress was developed layer by layer, constructing it from the corset and the complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt," the royal family said in a statement on their website. "The dress features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train. The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis."

The material – which was created in Pilotto's East London studio – was created with symbols that are meaningful to the bride and groom.

"The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple's fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the Bride's Ferguson family, the York Rose and ivy representing the couple's home. Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos have reinterpreted these symbols in a garland of rope like motifs, woven into a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend."

Her tiara was an emerald tiara on loan from her Grandmother, the Queen, and acted as her something borrowed for the day. Eugenie accessorised her gown with a pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Just as Meghan Markle did when she married Prince Harry in May, Eugenie managed to surprise everyone with her choice of designer, with many fashion experts predicting that she was going to choose Erdem, Stella McCartney or Vivienne Westwood.
