Did Princess Beatrice wear The Queen’s dress at her Royal Wedding?


Exclusive new details from Princess Beatrice’s wedding have just been released – here’s everything you need to know from the dress, the flowers and all the royal inspo!

Princess Beatrice got married during the pandemic where she wore a stunning vintage gown borrowed from The Queen herself…

With new details finally being released to the public, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about their intimate ceremony including dress and flower inspo.

Wedding Wardrobe

Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell gifted to her by none other than her grandmother, The Queen herself. The dress was modified with organza puff sleeves and is made from Peau De Soie taffeta in an ivory shade with an embellished bodice.

Her diamond fringe tiara also holds sentimental value as it was originally designed for The Queen who wore it back in 1947 for her own wedding to Prince Phillip.

The famous dress is now on display at Windsor Castle – Beatrice took to twitter saying, ‘It was an honour to wear my grandmother’s beautiful dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Winsor Castle.’

The Flowers

Princess Beatrice walked the aisle with a stunning bouquet of trailing jasmine, pastel pink and cream sweat peas, pink o’hara garden roses, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink wax flower and baby pink astilbe.

She also stuck to royal traditions by including springs of myrtle in the bouquet and arrangements. The bouquet was crafted by Patrice Van Helden and RVH Floral Design and matched the beautiful flower archway at the chapel.

Beatrice did veer from royal traditions in one way by adding a pop of colour in her bouquet with a pastel pink theme. Many royal brides tend to stick to a more traditional and neutral colour scheme with cream and whites colour for flower arrangements, but we’re loving the baby pink vibe which is perfect for a summer wedding!

The Ceremony


Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi held an intimate wedding on 17th July last year, inviting only close family to the celebration.

After postponing their first wedding date back in May, the two decided to keep the day small with parents and siblings and kept within the government guidelines for a Covid-safe ceremony.

Their original venue at Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace was changed to The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Royal Lodge, Windsor, where they exchanged vows with The Queen in attendance showing her approval of the marriage.

Princess Beatrice’s wedding certificate has just made history with it being the first to ever include mother’s details – before the 3rd May this year, the mothers’ details were not included in marriage records, but now up to four parents can be added to the certificate, including step-parents.

This new rule will apply to all brides and grooms in England and Wales, who for the first time can have both parents added to the wedding register. The Home Office announced the changes to the Marriage Act on 4th May, saying it will ‘correct a historic anomaly’.
