The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice of York and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire, England.

The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines.

Princess Beatrice stayed the night before at The Royal Lodge, the official country residence of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and ex wife, Sarah, Duchess of York since the Queen Mother’s death in 2002.

The Princess walked to the church and had only one bridesmaid.

Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary Diamond Fringe Tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen. The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947.

The dress is made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves. It is encrusted with diamanté and has a geometric checkered bodice.

Beatrice’s dress was worn by Her Majesty three times: in Rome in 1961, in London to the Lawrence of Arabia premiere in 1962 and State Opening of Parliament in 1967.

The gown was re-modelled slightly with the addition of organza puff sleeves and a less voluminous hem by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin.

The wedding of Princess Beatrice was scheduled to take place on 29 May 2020 at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, followed by a private reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. However, first the reception and then the wedding itself were postponed due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The photos of the wedding were released on July 18th because the couple do not want to overshadow Captain Sir Thomas Moore’s investiture at Windsor Castle.

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

by E. E. Cummings
