Kate Middleton's Dress Gets Company: A Royal Jewel Show at Buckingham Palace


Queen Elizabeth II in 1972.

Last year, the public got a close-up view of Kate Middleton's wedding dress at Buckingham Palace. And soon, the building will host an exhibit of the monarchy's precious jewelry and objects.

The show, called "Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration," starts in August 2012 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's 60th year on the throne. WWD reports that pieces include a Garrard crown worn by Queen Victoria in 1897 and the Williamson brooch, which holds a 23.6 carat pink diamond from Tanzania.

Since showcases have become something of a trend at British palaces this year (there is also a collection of Princess Diana's outfits coming to Kensington in March), we wonder what they'll display next. Perhaps a retrospective of Kate and Pippa's favorite Zara dresses and L.K. Bennett pumps? What royal memorabilia would you pay to see see?
