When a royal bride gets married, it's quite customary for her wedding dress to go on exhibition shortly after the wedding day.
This also happened with the late Princess Diana's wedding gown. It was displayed for a while at Althorp House, where she is buried, and it went on tour for a few years during the Diana: A Celebration exhibit, though it generally wasn't part of the displays for long.
However, you're not likely to see the dress IRL anytime soon, as it is now privately owned by her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. This happened in 2014, as Princess Diana asked for her belongings to be given to them when they both turned 30.
Eleri Lynn, former curator of the exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story, held at Kensington Palace in 2018, revealed this in a conversation with historian and Historic Royal Palaces' joint chief curator Lucy Worsley.
Asked if we would ever see the dress again, she replied it was now 'part of the private collection of the Dukes of Sussex and Cambridge'.
As such, it is unlikely to be displayed, unless the Princes choose otherwise, but it's easy to imagine them wanting to keep this particular outfit private.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
