Princess Beatrice had an intimate wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Friday in Windsor with the Queen & The Duke Of Edinburgh in attendance. She chose to wear a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell dress borrowed from the Queen. Made from ivory Peau De Soie taffeta, the diamanté-encrusted gown features organza puff sleeves and is trimmed with satin. Princess Beatrice completed her look with the Queen Mary tiara, the same piece that the Queen wore to marry the Duke of Edinburgh on her wedding day in 1947.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, neither Kate Middleton nor Meghan Markle attended the ceremony, but both congratulated the bride, albeit in different ways. The Duchess of Cambridge took a more public route, posting a message to her and Prince William’s shared Instagram Story over the weekend. The couple shared a photo of Beatrice and her new husband at their ceremony alongside the Queen and Prince Philip.

Beneath a “Just Married” banner, they wrote, “Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who were married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on Friday!” The Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry sent their well wishes separately. According to a source close to the couple, Meghan and Harry congratulated Beatrice and Mozzi privately. Meghan and Harry have been quarantining in Los Angeles with their one-year-old son Archie, whereas Kate and William have been staying in their Anmer Hall country home in Norfolk with their three children. The Palace released a statement on Friday confirming Beatrice’s nuptials. “The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11 AM on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor,” the Palace said. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines.” According to The Sun, about 20 guests attended.
