One very famous wedding dress is about to make its way back to two deserving young men! On September 15, Princess Diana's iconic white gown will be transferred to her sons, Prince William and Harry, in honor of the latter royal's 30th birthday.

According to the New York Daily News, Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, has kept her David and Elizabeth Emanuel dress from her wedding to Prince Charles since her death in 1997. But, as stipulated in her will, the dress, along with other personal items from the former royal, was to be passed on to her sons when Harry turned 30. The two princes will also inherit their mother's diamond tiaras, family paintings, letters, home movies, and the original score and lyrics to the special version of "Candle in the Wind" that Elton John wrote in honor of the late princess.

Diana's dress, an incredible silk-and-taffeta lace gown, was adorned with thousands of pearls and included a statement-making 25-foot train. But her wedding day wasn't the only time the public got a glimpse the dress: According to Today, the gown is displayed twice a year at the family's Althorp estate in Northampton, England as part of the exhibit, "Diana: A Celebration."

But now the famed ivory wedding dress will be returned to her two sons, who have famously cherished mementos of their mother since her untimely passing. Most recently, Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mom's own sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring.
