Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's Royal Wedding Photos Are Perfectly Picturesque
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's beautiful royal wedding photos are here, just a day after they quietly tied the knot on July 17. The couple are pictured beaming as they exit The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor under a floral archway and posed at a distance with her grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh. They celebrated the special day with 20 of their closest friends and family.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: "The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor. The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government guidelines." Congrats to Beatrice and Edoardo!
It's no secret that Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle aren't fans of the UK media, particularly those that have spent the past few years invading the Sussexes' privacy and raining down unprovoked, racist criticism on Meghan alone. But those close to Harry also know that Meghan's cruel treatment by the press wasn't the start […]
In May of 2018, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel in a televised ceremony seen by an estimated 1.9 billion people around the world. Given the sheer magnitude of the royal viewership and the history of the spectacle, every single element of Markle’s bridal beauty look was finely curated, from the loose hairs falling out of her messy bun to the shape and polish on her fingernails.As it pertains to the latter, we know what Markle’s royal-wedding manicure looked like: short and rounded in shape, topped with a glossy pink-nude nail polish. However, the exact brand and shade of polish has been held under lock-and-key — until now.According to a recent report published in British Vogue, Markle relied on DryBy London, one of the city’s premiere nail salons, for her bridal manicure and pedicure. On the big day, she actually wore a combination of two CND gel polishes on her fingernails: one layer of Unmasked, a pinky nude, with two coats of the sheer white shade Negligee over the top. For her pedicure, her artist painted on two coats of CND Shellac in the shade Cashmere Wrap, a warm taupe nude. The London-based salon later confirmed the report in an Instagram post, co-signing the trio of CND polishes used to create Markle’s bridal mani-pedi. What’s makes this new reveal even more interesting is the fact that Markle wore CND Shellac polish, when we know that the British royal family tend to wear Essie shades almost exclusively. For example, for her royal-wedding manicure, Kate Middleton reportedly wore Essie nail polish in Allure. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth has worn Essie Ballet Slippers on repeat for over 30 years, and reportedly approves of it for the rest of the family. (Princess Eugenie was rumored to have also worn this shade for her nuptials.)We can see why Markle would opt for a gel formula for her big day — all the better to cut loose on the dance floor without worrying about a single chip. Either way, her custom-designed bridal manicure remains elegant and timeless even years later — making for a very chic and very practical break from royal tradition.

For a little bit of added protection against COVID-19, many people have begun adding filters to fabric face masks. In fact, many of the cloth masks available from small businesses and major retailers now include a filter pocket specifically for that purpose.
