About the Costume

This beautiful gold and white Tudor-style gown has been used in many different forms. It’s been seen in a film, a documentary, a mini-series, several book covers, and even utilized as a prop. The dress was first designed for the 1977 film Crossed Swords (also known as The Prince and the Pauper) by costume designer Judy Moorcroft (A Passage To India, The Europeans). Moorcroft seems to have designed the costumes for all of the main characters in the film, though quite a few recycled costumes from Anne of the Thousand Days and A Man For All Seasons do appear on secondary characters.

The gown was worn on Lalla Ward in 1977 as Princess Elizabeth in Crossed Swords. In 1986 the costume was seen again in Lady Jane, though it was used as a prop rather than worn. In 2001, Charlotte Roach wore it as Jane Seymour in David Starkey’s 2001 documentary The Six Wives of Henry VIII. In 2003 the dress was worn in the mini-series Henry VIII by Emilia Fox as Jane Seymour. Eventually, the dress was used for a photo shoot, the photos from which went on to grace the covers of several re-issues of Jean Plaidy novels. Two re-issues appeared in 2011, including Plaidy’s 1949 Murder Most Royal and her 1953 The Sixth Wife. In 2012 the gown was seen on the cover of a re-issue of her 1966 novel The Queen’s Favourites, as well as the 1956 novel A Health Unto His Majesty.
