When Lady Amelia Spencer got married in a sumptuous wedding last week, royal watchers and fashionistas alike were wowed by her gorgeous gown – but it also has a special meaning. The Versace wedding dress was a nod to Spencer’s late aunt Princess Diana, according to an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine. Spencer, 30, wedded her long-term partner, Greg Mallett, 33, on a mountaintop at Quoin Rock Manor House in the Winelands of Western Cape, South Africa, on March 21, the publication reported on Sunday. Diana’s niece walked down the aisle in a custom gown by Versace, one of the late royal’s favourite designers, according to Hello! The backless, lace gown had long sleeves, floral and sheer detailing on the waist, Swarovski crystals, and a two-and-a-half-metre train.

She befriended the designer after modelling a blue Atelier Versace gown on a magazine cover in 1991, Vogue reports. “I think she would be very proud to see me on my wedding day,” Spencer said of her aunt in her interview with Hello! “I know the Versace family also absolutely love Diana, so there’s a very special connection that we have,” she added. Spencer is the daughter of Diana’s brother, Earl Spencer, and former model Victoria Lockwood.
