PRINCESS Beatrice wore a vintage dress loaned to her by her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II at her wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Buckingham Palace has said as it released official photographs from the private family event. The Queen’s granddaughter and the property tycoon were married on Friday in the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.
The 94-year-old British monarch and her husband Prince Philip, 99, attended along with the parents and siblings of the bride and groom. The palace said on Saturday that guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19 were followed at the ceremony. Music was played but there were no hymns and no singing -- not even during the national anthem, “God Save the Queen.” Beatrice, 31, wore a vintage ivory taffeta dress by Norman Hartnell and a diamond tiara that was worn by the Queen on her own wedding day in 1947. The 36-year-old groom wore a morning suit.
