Buckingham palace has released photographs from Princess Beatrice’s wedding to property tycoon Mapelli Mozzi after their small ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor. Beatrice donned a vintage dress, an ivory taffeta gown by Norman Hartnell, and diamond tiara which she borrowed from her grandmother,Queen Elizabeth II.
The dress was remodelled and fitted by the Queen’s senior dresser Angela Kelly and designer Stewart Parvin, according to Buckingham Palace.
Her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, did not appear in either of the released photos, though the palace confirmed her father walk her down the isle.
Her 94-year-old grandmother and husband Prince Philip, 99, attended with only the parents and siblings of the bride and groom.
In a statement from the palace,the couple had originally planned to marry in May 29 at the Chapel Royal, St James Palace, in London, but Britain’s lock down forced them to reschedule. Wedding ceremonies in England have been allowed since July 4, but with a limit of 30 guests.
The palace said guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19 were followed at the small ceremony. Music was played but there were no hymns and no singing — not even during the U.K. national anthem, “God Save the Queen.”
Beatrice is the eldest daughter of Britain’s Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.
