Princess Diana's wedding dress has arrived in Canada for a new exhibit.

The late royal wore the Elizabeth and David Emanuel-designed gown on her wedding day to ex-husband Prince Charles in 1981 and the famous dress will now be the star attraction in a new exhibition 'Diana: A Celebration', at the West Edmonton Mall.

Nick Grossmark, exhibit curator, told 'CTV Edmonton': "It's the most famous wedding dress in the world.

"It was worn by a person who became one of the most important women in the world."

According to the Edmonton Journal, Grossmark, along with fellow curator Graeme Murton, will accompany the dress as it travels the world and are the only people permitted to touch it - as long as they are wearing white gloves.

Murton said of the dress: "She wanted a fairy tale wedding dress It had to have a big impact because (St. Paul's in London) was such a large cathedral.

"When you come to the exhibition, you're very lucky that you actually see the royal train completely laid out in the case."

will be just one of more than 150 artifacts featured in nine galleries when the exhibit opens tomorrow (09.02.13).

Diana and Charles - who had sons Princes William and Harry together - separated in 1995 and were divorced in 1997, just weeks before her death in a Paris car crash.
