On Friday 17 July, Princess Beatrice married property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret ceremony at All Saints Chapel in Windsor.
The couple had originally intended to wed on Friday 29 May, but their nuptials was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Princess Beatrice wore a vintage gown that she borrowed from the Queen for her wedding, an ivory gown designed by British couturier Normal Hartnell.
The Queen’s dressmaker Angela Kelly and bridal designer Stewart Parvin worked with the princess to remodel the dress to fit her.
The monarch wore the same gown in 1962 while attending the premiere of Lawrence of Arabia in London and in 1967 during the State Opening of Parliament.
The bouquet that Princess Beatrice carried on her wedding day upheld a 162-year-old royal tradition, as it contained sprigs of myrtle.
Sprigs of myrtle have been included in royal bridal bouquets since the wedding of Princess Victoria, the eldest child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, to Prince Frederick of Prussia in 1858.
