"Will dazzle and delight"

Writing from history, facts can eclipse character, as occasionally happens here. But like the accumulation of satin appliqué flowers, sequins, seed pearls, crystal beads and invisible stitches on Princess Elizabeth’s wedding dress, The Gown grows weighty, impressive, captivating as its details build.

For fans of The Crown, looking for history served up as intimate drama, and those seeking another angle on royal lives, The Gown seems likely to dazzle and delight.
