The gown, which was a gift to her from the states of Flanders, was
made by orphans in Ghent. Out of gratitude for this expensive present,
Maria Theresa allowed her portrait to be painted by her court painter,
Martin van Meytens, after which the completed work was handed over to
the members of the states. See the real canvas in Bruges!

||The wedding of Prince Albert, Duke of York, and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon|
took place on 26 April 1923 at Westminster Abbey. The veil, loaned to the
bride by her future mother-in-law, Queen Mary, was made of Flanders lace.
Also a strip of Brussels lace, inserted in the dress, was a Strathmore family
heirloom. A female ancestor of the bride had worn it to a grand ball for
"Bonnie Prince Charlie".
