Princess Beatrice is already married, and the details of her secret wedding have been revealed a day after the event.
Princess Beatrice decided to push back her big day due to the pandemic. The palace did not give any date as to when she would walk down the aisle. Thus, her wedding surprised many who did not see it coming anytime soon.
Princess Beatrice just wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
On Friday, Princess Beatrice exchanged “I do’s” with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Their wedding was held at Windsor Castle. Queen Elizabeth II, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, were among the few guests on Princess Beatrice’s big day.
“The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May,” the palace said in a statement, Reuters reported.
Seniors like the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are discouraged from going to public places due to their age and the pandemic. Seniors are more susceptible to the virus.
However, according to royal correspondent Rebecca English, the event took place in accordance with the government’s guidelines.
The bride wore a vintage gown
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s daughter opted to wear a vintage ivory dress. Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress was designed by Norman Hartnell.
She also wore Queen Mary’s diamond fringe tiara. The bride loaned both of her bridal gown and tiara from the Queen.

Princess Beatrice before the royal wedding
Back in March, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had to hold their big day due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to ABC News’ foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli in the Heir Podcast, it was heartbreaking for the bride.
“We are rational humans we know it is not the biggest deal. On a day to day basis for a lot of people, it is affecting their daily lives. A lot of friends of mine having weddings that they are planning. It is a milestone, it is a huge moment, something that you will remember forever,” Rulli said.
Princess Beatrice wasn’t the only bride who had to come up with the decision. People couldn’t travel at the time, and mass gathering was discouraged. So, it wasn’t easy for the royal.
“Your heart does break for Beatrice and all the other brides and grooms out there that are trying to plan this big day. Plans everywhere are getting uprooted left and right and it is just part of this crisis. It is definitely an emotional toll that people are going through,” she added.
