Princess Diana`s wedding dress replica to go under hammer

London: Nearly 14 years after Princess Diana`s death in a Paris car crash, a replica of her wedding dress is up for auction at 65,000 pounds.

The replica gown was made by designers David and Elizabeth Emmanuel for her Madame Tussauds wax work.

The Emmanuels` dress -- to be sold for charity -- is almost identical to the gown which was worn by the late Princess of Wales on July 29, 1981, when she got married to Prince Charles.

The dress was made at the time of the Royal wedding using the same toile, same fabrics and trimmings as the original, `The Sun` reported.

There are two small differences however -- the antique Carrickmacross lace on the bodice front is similar but not identical to Queen Mary`s Carrickmacross lace used on the original gown and the train and veil are around a third of the length of the original.
