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.

Costume Commentary

  1. This one appears in two more novels by Jean Plaidy (besides “Murder Most Royal” and “The Sixth Wife”). Of course, both are re-issues, and belong to the Stuart saga. They are:

    “A Health Unto His Majesty” (originally, 1956).
    “The Queen’s Favourites” (from 1966).

    It seems that this gown it is remarkably well preserved, considering how faded are some other costumes originated in “Crossed Swords”…

  2. This one appears in a third novel by Jean Plaidy (besides “Murder Most Royal” and “The Sixth Wife”). This one belongs to the Stuart saga, it is “A Health Unto His Majesty “… (the novel is from 1956, but this one is clearly a re-issue)…

    It seems that this gown it is remarkably well preserved, considering how faded are some other costumes originated in “Crossed Swords”…

  3. About what Annette pointed out, I think that the re-issue of Jean Plaidy’s “The Sixth Wife” is the same dress originated in “Crossed Swords”. The way to confirm it is to count the pearls in the neckline and check their position.

    The confusing thing is that the inner skirt has been photoshoped into red, and originally, it is white-gold…

  4. I must say, when I was reading Jean Plaidy’s “Murder Most Royal”, and I couldn’t help but imagine Anne Boleyn with Genevieve Bujold’s look… and Catherine Howard with Tamzin Merchant’s, despite I didn’t watch “Anne of the Thousand Days” or “The Tudors”…

  5. I’m not 100% sure on this one, but a dress with the same square neck pattern (look at the pearls) appears on Jean Plaidy’s “The Sixth Wife” as part of the 2006 reproduction of all her novels. It is grey but that could all be down to photoshop and lighting and the skirt is red again it could be down to photoshop or a new skirt all together.

  6. The headdress worn by Charlotte Roach in THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII was fashioned by Margaret Furse for Genevieve Bujold in ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS. It also appeared worn by Queen Mary in 1970’s ELIZABETH R and on an extra in MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS (1971).
