Princess Beatrice thanks fans three months after surprise wedding

Princess Beatrice touches on wearing the Queen’s gown for her wedding

Princess Beatrice had a unique royal wedding-a surprise, socially-distanced ceremony, attended only by a small group of guests-and a unique wedding dress to go with it: a vintage Norman Hartnell gown on loan from none other than Beatrice's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Her Majesty also wore the dress again to the London premiere of the film Lawrence of Arabia in 1962 and the State Opening of Parliament in 1966.

"It was an honour to wear my grandmother's lovely dress on my wedding day", she said.

Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo, 37, suprised everyone when they secretly married mid pandemic on July 17.

Princess Beatrice has finally broken her silence on her wedding day details, taking to Twitter to share how special it was to wear her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth's dress.

Small adjustments were made to the gown by the monarch's dresser Angela Kelly and designer Stewart Parvin for Beatrice's wedding day, including the addition of cap sleeves embroidered with vintage diamantés.


"Thanks to everybody who's sent tweeted and in their very best wishes for our particular evening in July".

Continuing the royal bride's sustainable theme of secondhand bridalwear, Beatrice also wore the 94-year-old monarch's Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, and shoes by Valentino that she had previously worn on several occasions - including to the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.

Beatrice, 32, and Edoardo, 37, began dating in October 2018 and announced their engagement past year. I hope you have a long and happy marriage that is blessed with love & joy'. "You took the bar to a new level by wearing your grandmother's stunning vintage dress and wedding tiara". While the couple were due to marry at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace, they actually ended up marrying in Windsor.

Princess Beatrice opened up about her big day during a video call with Forget Me Not Children's Hospice recently. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also attended the wedding.

Beatrice's wedding dress will be on display from September 24th to November 22nd.
