Princess Beatrice tied the knot to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a dress and tiara she borrowed from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Beatrice, the oldest daughter of the British monarch’s third child Prince Andrew, was originally due to walk down the aisle in May, but, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the nuptials were cancelled. She surprised the nation by marrying behind closed doors on Friday, where she shunned a large royal wedding in favour of a low-key ceremony.

However, the modest wedding didn’t mean Beatrice scrimped on the glamour. The 31-year-old looked radiant in a Norman Hartnell dress and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, which the Queen wore to her own wedding in 1947.

Princess Anne also wore the tiara for her 1973 wedding.

The vintage ivory taffeta gown, which the head of the royal family wore multiple times in the ’60s, features organza sleeves, a nipped in waist and diamante embellishments adorning the geometric bodice.

Sir Norman Hartnell also designed the Queen’s wedding dress.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson confirmed the news of Beatrice’s marriage, revealing the ceremony had taken place following the U.K. government’s social distancing guidelines.

“The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17 July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor. 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,” they said in a statement.

Sarah, Duchess of York has candidly discussed the cosmetic procedures she’s undergone in recent years.

Sarah Ferguson, who is mum to Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, turns 60 next week and she’s marking the milestone with a little cosmetic surgery honesty, explaining she has needed a little help to look good in recent years.

“I’ve started the laser treatment, but it’s not finished yet,” she told Mail Online. “The collagen needs to rebuild. I hope it will all be done by my birthday.”

However, Sarah insisted that she hasn’t had any major cosmetic surgery, adding, “I don’t like the frozen look. I’m so animated and I like to be myself. I don’t like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy. I’m really happy to be open about what I’ve had done.

“I need to repair the damage that was done on the beach when I was a child. It’s why I had the mesotherapy, the vitamin cocktail to hydrate and boost the skin.”

The redhead, who was married to Prince Andrew from 1986 until 1996, also revealed that she underwent a facial thread lift six years ago. The procedure involves the use of temporary sutures to produce a subtle but visible lift in the skin.

“Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it,” the 59-year-old explained. “It’s like garden trellising for sweet peas. You insert the threads under the skin with a fine needle and they hold everything up. They also encourage collagen production. It takes a couple of months, then the sweet peas bloom! Before I had it done I thought, ‘Oh, this is going to be painful’, but it wasn’t bad. My skin responded well.”

Princess Eugenie has chosen an elegant white off-the-shoulder gown from Peter Pilotto for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

The British royal, who is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, arrived at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, England on Friday (12Oct18) morning, where she stepped out in a dress designed by Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

Eugenie worked closely with the design duo on the long-sleeved ballgown, which features a corseted bodice, a full pleated skirt as well as a number of meaningful motifs.

“The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis,” a royal spokesperson explained in a statement. “The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the Bride’s Ferguson family, the York Rose and ivy representing the couple’s home.”

Eugenie, 28, wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by The Queen, with the headpiece featuring brilliant and rose cut diamonds set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side, as well as diamond and emerald drop earrings which were gifted to her by Jack.

She completed her outfit with satin peep-toe heels by Charlotte Olympia and a bouquet comprised of Lily of the Valley, Stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy.

Eugenie’s sister and maid of honour, Princess Beatrice wore a blue outfit by Ralph and Russo and a hat by Sarah Cant, while their mother Sarah, Duchess of York chose an emerald green ensemble crafted by local Windsor company Emma Louise Design and carried a vintage Manolo Blahnik bag.

Jack, who was very emotional as his bride walked towards up the aisle, donned a traditional three-piece suit.

Other members of the royal family suitably dressed up to the nines, with The Queen choosing a pale blue suit and hat, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wowing in a fuchsia dress, and her sister-in-law, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex turning heads in a navy blue Givenchy coat dress.

Over 850 guests were in attendance at the wedding, including a number of A-listers. Naomi Campbell stepped out in a black and white dress with a feather trim along with matching fascinator, diamond jewellery and black gloves, while Kate Moss opted for a navy and white polka dot suit, which she complemented with a veiled headpiece.

Actress Liv Tyler looked lovely in a navy blue tailored suit, Pixie Geldof stood out in a bubblegum pink cape dress from Celine and Demi Moore was the epitome of elegance in a burgundy dress which she complemented with a coordinated fascinator and purse.

Robbie Williams suited up in a three-piece blue number and his wife Ayda Field dazzled in a light grey suit, with the couple’s six-year-old daughter Theodora acting as one of Eugenie’s bridesmaids in the ceremony. Other standout outfits included the tuxedo and top hat worn by Cara Delevingne, the floral print dress sported by Sofia Wellesley, the wife of singer James Blunt, and the baby pink ensemble donned by Holly Vallance.
