  • Princess Beatrice tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on July 17, 2020.

  • The royal looked stunning in a vintage dress borrowed from Queen Elizabeth, which she accessorized with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara.

  • Beatrice wore the very same tiara that her grandmother, the queen, wore on her own wedding day.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Princess Beatrice initially canceled her May nuptials to property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. However, in a surprising move, the princess decided to tie the knot in a very private wedding ceremony, which took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor on Friday.

The bride looked incredible in a vintage gown, designed by Norman Hartnell, and on loan from Queen Elizabeth. As well as borrowing her wedding dress from Her Majesty, Princess Beatrice also opted to wear a tiara which is very close to Queen Elizabeth's heart.

As confirmed by an official press release from Buckingham Palace, Princess Beatrice chose the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara for her wedding day. Queen Elizabeth II also wore the intricate tiara at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. The tiara dates back to 1919 when it was made specially for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co., created from a necklace gifted by Queen Victoria.

The fact that Princess Beatrice wore both a dress and a tiara belonging to her grandmother, the queen, for her wedding to Mapelli Mozzi shows that the two royals share a similar aesthetic. Beatrice's choices honored Queen Elizabeth's classic style, and undoubtedly made the latest royal wedding all the more special.
