Royal Bridal Dress, 15th March 1879
The pearl necklace worn by her Royal Highness was a wedding gift from her most illustrious and venerable uncle King William I, emperor of Germany.........
The bridal veil was richly decorated with real point-de-gaze lace, ornamented with flowers, crown and the royal coat of arms of Prussia, in relief, all worked with real white lace. The order was given at the beginning of July last and the work has been done by the hands of 300 peasant girls in the mountains of Silesia".
