And since there was so much media attention surrounding the royal couple, Elizabeth, her then-husband David Emanuel and their team at Brook St, Mayfair took every precaution to keep details of the dresses hidden.
“We had the dress stored every night in a metal cabinet guarded by two guards, Jim and Bert,” Elizabeth explained. “So there was somebody there 24 hours a day and we put shutters on all our windows, and we put false color threads in the rubbish bins because people were going through our bins.”
And if you’re wondering what happened to the extra dress, it appears the team hid it a little too well.
“I don’t know where it went,” Elizabeth admitted. “It just disappeared.”
