Princess Beatrice has finally tied the knot to her prince charming, months after the original date was forced to be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Beatrice and her new husband, property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, officially wed on July 17 at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor in a very private ceremony.

The bride looked incredible in a vintage gown, designed by Norman Hartnell, and on loan from Queen Elizabeth. As well as borrowing her wedding dress from Her Majesty, Princess Beatrice also opted to wear a tiara which is very close to Queen Elizabeth's heart.

As confirmed by an official press release from Buckingham Palace, Princess Beatrice chose the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara for her wedding day. Queen Elizabeth II also wore the intricate tiara at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. The tiara dates back to 1919 when it was made specially for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co., created from a necklace gifted by Queen Victoria.

Princess Beatrice's wedding also included all sorts of vintage inspired decor, and her choice in gown and tiara cements her super close relationship with her grandmother, the Queen.
