The ivory lace and satin-gazar dress designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen has been on display in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace since July as part of the Palace's summer opening, attracting record crowds and adding 8million pounds to royal treasury.

The Royal Collection has held discussions with the Duchess of Cambridge about what will happen to the dress after the Palace closes to the public on October 3.

A Clarence House spokesman said a decision is yet to be made but there are no plans to exhibit the dress elsewhere "for the foreseeable future", reports the Daily Express.

Kate, 29, is said to be concerned about protecting the 250,000-pound gown.

The dress is so delicate that it could easily be damaged if it is moved too frequently, according to sources.

The logistics, cost and security involved in moving and exhibiting the dress make a national tour highly unlikely.

Bosses at the Royal Collection had hoped it might go on display at Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.
