Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress is a vintage Elizabeth II outfit

Buckingham Palace unveiled on its Twitter account the photos of the wedding of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, on Saturday, July 18. Prince Andrew’s daughter wears a tiara and wedding dress borrowed from Queen Elizabeth II.

Some relatives of Princess Beatrice initially bet on a wedding dress designed by Italian designer Caroline Castigliano. Prince Andrew’s daughter, however, created a surprise on Friday July 17, the day of her discreet wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at the All Saints Chapel Royal in Windsor. For the occasion, the 31-year-old had actually opted for a vintage dress, borrowed… from Elizabeth II. The two also posed together, alongside Prince Philip and the groom, during a photoshoot with Benjamin Wheeler.

Buckingham Palace thus revealed in a press release published on Saturday July 18 that the dress, designed by Norman Hartnell and brought up to date by British designers Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin, came directly from Her Majesty’s wardrobe.
