Nothing can excite and interest people like a royal wedding as it was seen in April of 2011 when Prince William, the world’s most eligible bachelor married Catherine Middleton. The event was watched on television by a whopping two billion and the streets of London were lined up by nearly one million people to watch the newlyweds go by after the ceremony had taken place at Westminster Abbey.

Here is a list of the top royal wedding dresses that have been donned by the queens:

There are only a few dresses that have been perfectly tailored and have the craftsmanship that could be seen in the wedding dress of Mette Marit. The neck can be defined as nothing less than a masterpiece that remains unsurpassed, even today. The flow of the dress is also a memorable aspect as it made the bride appear floating on a cloud when she came into the Royal Palace on the arm of Crown Prince Haakon.
