When it comes to hot spicy news, the royals never disappoint. Whether it’s their history or the ongoing events in their life, they’re all full of glamor and revelations, aren’t they? As such, missing on the deets of a royal wedding would almost be a crime!
We’re talking about none other than Princess Beatrice’s wedding, and you’ll be thrilled to know that we have the inside scoop straight from the horse’s mouth – the Princess herself!
Let’s take a mini-tour of the day she tied the knot with the love of her life.
Princess Beatrice Shares Interesting Bits from Her Big Day
Not long after her wedding, Princess Beatrice took over the royal Twitter account to thank the public and shared her joy of the day when she wore her grandmother’s hand-me-down gown. She not only got to wear the royal gown but also had the chance to sport the same tiara Queen Elizabeth wore at her wedding with Prince Phillips!
Her excitement evidently reflected in her message as she described the beautiful gown. She also mentioned that fans could have a look at the dress at Windsor Castle, where it was displayed as per royal tradition.
She thanked the public for their warm wishes and shared two official photographs of her wedding. And she didn’t miss mentioning how exciting it was for her to step into this new chapter of life.
If you’ve been following the wedding since it was announced, you’d know that it was supposed to take place in May but got postponed due to the Corona pandemic to July. Once the event was delayed, the Princess had the chance to reconsider her wedding dress choice, and that’s when she made a last-minute request to borrow the 1960’s Norman Hartnell dress.
A Peek at the History of the Royal Wedding Dress
When it comes to the royal family, even a gown has a history! The dress was last seen when the Queen herself wore it to the State Opening of the Parliament. Though this was the last time it was spotted, there have been several other events when the gown added to her charm and grace. It also followed the Queen in 1962 to the London premiere of Lawrence of Arabia.
Not Just the Princess, the Groom Was Full of Joy Too
In an interview with the Financial Times, Princess Beatrice’s husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, unfolded the joy he’d experienced while helping the Savile row tailor who handcrafted his suit. He said he knew that whenever he saw the suit, it would make him happy.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo headed to their honeymoon across France shortly after they tied the knot. And rumors suggest that she’s pregnant with their first child. While these rumors are yet to be confirmed, she’s already stepmother to her husband’s son from his previous marriage.
