Princess Beatrice wore Queen Elizabeth’s dress and tiara for private wedding – Page Six

July 19, 2020 | 9:43am

Princess Beatrice’s low-key wedding was a far cry from a traditional royal affair, with the bride even opting to wear a second-hand dress.

The Princess of York raided The Queen’s wardrobe and chose to borrow a dress her grandmother had first worn back in 1962.

Beatrice, 31, also wore the tiara worn by the Queen on her own wedding day back in 1947 as she said ‘I do’ to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The gorgeous white satin gown features a waterfall of intricate beaded embroidery from the bodice to the mid-thigh.

The sleeveless dress also has embellished shoulder straps and additional beading at the waist.

The royal bride, 31, chose to add her own personal touch to the dress by having a pair of sheer, puffed sleeves sewn into the straps.

Beatrice also had the underskirts removed opting for a simple silk trim on the hem rather than the puff-ball skirt her grandmother wore.

The dress was the creation of Norman Hartnell a designer loved by the monarch.

As well as the dress, Beatrice also borrowed a tiara from The Queen’s jewelry collection as is custom for royal brides.

However, it wasn’t just any tiara, it was the same tiara worn by the Queen when she married Prince Philip back in 1947.

Her Majesty wore the gown along with a fur stole and a ceremonial sash at a state dinner held in honor of the then Italian President Giovanni Gronchi at the British Embassy in Rome on 4th May 1961.

The Queen was one of the few guests in attendance at the wedding in Windsor on Friday.

The couple were married in a small family ceremony that took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, with the permission of the Queen.

The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May.

Working within government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.

Princess Beatrice tied the knot to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a private ceremony in Windsor attended by Queen Elizabeth II and other “close family” members.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the unannounced nuptials in a statement to Fox News Friday morning.

“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,” a spokeswoman at Buckingham Palace said.

The ceremony was attended by a “small” group of guests, including Beatrice’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. The remaining guests were “close family” members, the palace said.

The royal wedding comes nearly two months after Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson‘s eldest daughter and her fiance Mozzi had no choice but to postpone their big day, originally scheduled for May 29, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ceremony was initially set to take place at St. James Palace in London, with a lavish reception at Elizabeth’s garden in Buckingham Palace.

In April, the palace confirmed to Fox News that the couple was exploring other options.

“Princess Beatrice and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward to getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances,” a spokesperson for the couple told Fox News at the time. “In line with government advice for the U.K. and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May.”

The couple’s decision came after the U.K. government extended the nationwide lockdown for an additional three weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The British royal and the 37-year-old property developer had reportedly already rescheduled it twice due to Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew’s public scandal involving Jeffrey Epstein.

The first cousin of Princes William and Harry was rumored to have started dating Mozzi in November 2018, after she split from her boyfriend of nearly a decade, Dave Clark, in 2016.
