Princess Beatrice had a unique royal wedding-a surprise, socially-distanced ceremony, attended only by a small group of guests-and a unique wedding dress to go with it: a vintage Norman Hartnell gown on loan from none other than Beatrice's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
Through a recent tweet that was promoting a Windsor Castle event, the daughter of the Duke of York not only promoted the event but also gave a short and sweet note highlighting her feelings over the entire experience on her wedding day.
32-year-old Princess Beatrice secretly married property developer Edo on July 17 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at the Royal Lodge in Windsor after the two were forced to postpone their planned May 29 wedding due to Covid-19.
"Thank you to everyone who has sent in and tweeted their best wishes for our special day in July", she tweeted. "The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947". Thanks to a photo of the British monarch in the dress from 1962, fans can see the subtle changes that were made for Beatrice's nuptials, including the addition of puff sleeves and a new hem.
Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo, 37, suprised everyone when they secretly married mid pandemic on July 17.
Beatrice, 32, and Edoardo, 37, began dating in October 2018 and announced their engagement previous year. 'You have raised the bar to new levels by wearing your grandmother's stunning vintage dress and her wedding tiara.
Princess Beatrice opened up about her big day during a video call with Forget Me Not Children's Hospice recently.
In a rare message on her personal Twitter account, Beatrice thanked the public for their well-wishes and spoke of her joy to be able to wear dress from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. YRH Princess Beatrice You and your husband, Edo looked lovely.
She also shared a tweet by the Royal Collection Trust encouraging people to visit its current exhibition where her Norman Hartnell-created wedding dress - which she borrowed from the Queen, 94 - shoes and a replica bouquet are now on display. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also attended the wedding.
