Prince William and Prince Harry agreed to loan the famous dress she wore at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

The dress originally belonged to Queen Mary and will be accessible for public viewing from June at the royal residence where Diana lived.

"Its gently scooped neckline and large puffed sleeves are trimmed with bows and deep ruffles of taffeta, a style popularized by the Princess in the early 1980s," Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) said on Monday.

Decades after her death, Diana is considered a fashion icon by supporters. In March, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, wore Diana's bracelet during her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

"Our summer exhibition at Kensington Palace will shine a spotlight on some of the greatest talents of British design, whose work has been instrumental in shaping the visual identity of the royal family across the twentieth century," Matthew Storey, exhibition curator at HRP, said in a statement.

The organisation further said that the exhibition would explore the unique relationship between fashion designers and royal clients.

“We'll be exploring how the partnership between each designer and client worked and revealing the process behind the creation of a number of the most important couture commissions in royal history.
“While one of the highlights will undoubtedly be Diana, Princess of Wales's show-stopping Emanuel designed wedding dress, which goes on show at the palace for the first time in 25 years – we've got some real surprises up our sleeve for fashion fans!” The statement read.

In a related report by royal expert Omid Scoobie said Diana would be extremely proud of Harry for speaking out about life behind the scenes as a royal family member.
