Princess Diana's wedding dress, the gown seen by millions as she married Prince Charles in 1981, will be given to her sons later this month as stipulated in the late royal's will.
As per the will, the silk-and-taffeta lace wedding dress is to be turned over to Prince William and Harry after Harry's 30th birthday, which will be Sept. 15, according to People magazine
. Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, is currently in possession of the gown, along with a few more of his sister's personal items.
The dress was created by David and Elizabeth Emanuel and boasts a 25-foot-long train and 10,000 pearls.

"The dress created a global stir, analogous to the one propagated by Kate Middleton's 2011 wedding dress (this was pre-Internet, of course, meaning that, instead of re-blogging GIFs of Diana walking down the aisle, fans had to, like, cut out pictures of it in newspapers and glue them to their walls, probably)," Vanity Fair mused
For two months a year, the dress becomes the centerpiece of "Diana: A Celebration," an exhibit at Althorp, the Spencer family estate in Northamptonshire, The Telegraph reported
Charles Spencer told the newspaper last year that many of the items in the exhibit will soon be turned over to the princes in accordance with Princess Diana's will.
That includes roughly 150 objects from various stages of her life: 28 dresses, designer suits, evening gowns, two diamond tiaras, family jewels, photos, letters, family paintings, home movies, the original text of Charles Spencer's tribute to his Princess Diana from her funeral at Westminister Abbey, and the score and lyrics of Elton John and Bernie Taupin's version of "Candle in the Wind."
The will also set aside £10 million (about $16.5 million USD) for each prince to receive on his 30th birthday.
Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 at age 36 with lover Dodi Fayed.
