The garment will be the centerpiece of an upcoming exhibition that will open to the public at Windsor Castle. Designed by Clare Waight, the outfit will be available to fans in the same place where the ceremony was formalized on May 19.

According to Express, there are plans for the dress valued at £200,000 (around $256,000) to be put on display before the end of the current year, although the exact date is yet to be confirmed.

Visitors will have access to the design from Givenchy’s artistic, which she conceived especially for the Duchess of Sussex's great day. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

The gown includes a 16ft-long veil, with embroidered details allusive to the 53 Commonwealth nations, and features a boat neck - Meghan's favorite -accompanied by three-quarter sleeves and a tight silhouette.

Windsor Palace statistics show that following Harry and Markle’s, the site has increased its visits in almost 100 percent, welcoming 1.44 million visitors during its summer opening period.

An exhibition of the Duchess’s wedding gown will probably keep boosting the palace’s popularity as a tourist attraction.

Another royal wedding is set to be celebrated in the palace in October, when Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank will get married, bringing yet more attention to the 1.000-year-old fortress.

'It's fair to say it's very busy down there,' a spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust, which manages the public visits of the palace, told Express.

If the Duchess of Susexx effectively allows her wedding dress to be displayed, she will be following in the footsteps of her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, in a move that will likely be embraced with great fanfare.

Two months after Prince William and Middleton exchanged vows in 2011 the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress, designed by Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen firm was exhibited at Buckingham Palace. The crown raised approximately 18 million dollars with this exhibition.
