Princess Beatrice married her fiancé, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, on Friday, July 17, 2020. The couple married at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, at 11am with The Queen, Prince Philip, and close family in attendance.
The Royal Family released two photos from the wedding – the first with the bride and groom exiting the church; the second with the bride and groom with The Queen and Philip.
While the wedding was a private affair and incredibly small due to social distancing restrictions, Beatrice went Full Princess for her wedding day.
She wore a vintage Norman Hartnell gown from 1961 – the gown was made for The Queen for a trip to Rome in 1961, and she wore it again in 1967 to the Lawrence of Arabia premiere and the Opening of Parliament. Hartnell famously designed both the Queen’s 1947 wedding gown and her 1953 coronation gown.

The gown was redesigned and refitted by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin for Beatrice. It’s made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, and features organza sleeves. The straps, bodice, and top of the skirt are encrusted with diamanté.

Beatrice carried a bouquet of pink and cream flowers with trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O’hara garden roses, pink wax flower and baby pink astilbe, with sprigs of myrtle per royal tradition. The flowers were done by Patrice Van Helden.

I adore Beatrice’s wedding look. I think it’s a wonderful tradition that she wore Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara (like the Queen and Anne before her), and I think the wedding gown is gorgeous and I love the addition of the sleeves. This whole look is so fairytale. *Chef’s kiss* Perfection!
Best wishes and congratulations to the bride and groom!
