The Queen might have thought the display was "horrid" but the amount of ca$$$h it raked in was anything but!
Kate Middleton's Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen wedding dress brought in more than $15.5 MILLION last summer.
The now iconic dress was on display for 73 days at Buckingham Palace and was seen by a total of 626,678 people, a figure Royal Collection director Jonathan Marsden called "unprecedented".
Visitors also got to drool over the Robinson Pelham diamond earrings from Catherine’s mummy and daddy, the Queen's borrowed Cartier "Halo" tiara, Kate's handmade silk shoes, and a replica of the royal wedding cake.
Maybe some of this money can help foot the Duchess's current wardrobe bill.
