1816 Princess Charlotte's marriage LIFE archives detint

From the LIFE magazine archives; sepia tone removed by gogm.

Charlotte wore a train yoked around her shoulders over her skirt for the "would-you-sign-in-please" part of her wedding according to this print. I believe the next image shows the actual dress she wore and it is different from this dress and the one shown in the print after it. Contemporary prints may not be accurate.
