At 11 A.M. on Friday, Princess Beatrice married British property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret wedding at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.
A bride with an eye for a vintage look is very much in luck when she's got Queen Elizabeth for a grandmother. Beatrice, 31, borrowed her grandmother's vintage dress designed by Norman Hartnell, as well as the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara the Queen wore on her wedding day in 1947, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a tweet. The Palace also shared a photo of the Queen and Prince Philip with the bride and groom (at a COVID-safe distance).
