Princess Beatrice Borrowed Her Wedding Dress and Tiara From Queen Elizabeth II's Wardrobe
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue! If your grandmother was Queen Elizabeth II, wouldn't you take advantage of her seemingly endless wardrobe? Princess Beatrice did, and the results were both sentimental and positively stunning. The royal quietly wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a private ceremony on 17 July and she chose meaningful attire for the occasion.
In a couple of newly-released wedding photos, you can see Beatrice and Edoardo exiting The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor looking blissfully in love. Her short-sleeved gown is a vintage design from Norman Hartnell, and originally belonged to the Queen herself. She paired the dress with a mid-length veil and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, which the Queen borrowed from her own mother for her wedding day. What a sweet gesture from grandmother to granddaughter, and vice versa.
