Prince Harry has a monumental birthday coming up (his 30th) and with this big day comes a slew of gifts with some extreme sentimental value. Both Harry and his brother Prince William will inherit Princess Diana's iconic wedding gown. Designed by David and Elizabeth Emmanuel, the taffeta and lace dress was worn during her 1981 nupitals to Prince Charles. But that's not the only item Prince Harry will receive from his late mother—as dictated in Princess Diana's will, both princes will also inherit an assortment of personal photos, letters, and jewels, as well as the score and lyrics to Elton John's version of "Candle in the Wind," which was customized for her funeral.

There are murmurings that the gown will eventually be put on display at Kensington Palace, Princess Diana's royal residence. Perhaps even Harry's eventual bride will recieve the honor of wearing it.
