Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have released two new photos from their royal wedding.
Her wedding dress — a vintage Norman Hartnell design — also belonged to the Queen. It was worn by the monarch to the state opening of parliament in 1967.Her Majesty wore a different dress by the same designer for her wedding.
Beatrice's tiara — The Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara — was lent to Her Majesty on her wedding day, however, the frame of the gem broke and had to be quickly repaired before the ceremony.Beatrice and Mozzi's socially distanced ceremony was attended by a small group of family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, and Beatrice's parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew. The groom's parents were also in attendance.
The couple initially planned to get married at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace with a wedding reception at Buckingham Palace in May. However, they canceled the ceremony during the UK lockdown and hadn't announced plans to reschedule.
Beatrice and Mozzi were family friends for a number of years before they started dating in 2018.
Mozzi, a businessman and property specialist, is descended from Italian nobility. Mozzi's father, an Italian count, previously said Beatrice would automatically inherit the title of countess upon the marriage, however this is yet to be confirmed by Buckingham Palace.
"A massive wedding was out of the question because of coronavirus," a friend of Beatrice's told The Sun."They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.
"They needed to make the wedding COVID-secure and safe for the Queen so what better way than the All Saints Chapel with reception on-site at the Royal Lodge."They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right," they added.
