The wedding dress of May Primrose became part of the Textile and Dress Collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1990 1. It was made in 1885 for her marriage to Henry Littledale. The couple then moved to India and May Littledale died a year later in a riding accident. Her belongings were packed together and shipped back to England. The wedding dress was never worn by anyone else and remained in the family, totally unaltered.
