Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress, first worn by Her Majesty The Queen in 1961

Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress, first worn by Her Majesty The Queen in 1961, will go on public display at Windsor Castle from September 24.

Designed by Sir Norman Hartnell, the original design was altered for Beatrice when she wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in July. Princess Beatrice and Count Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were married in a private wedding on 17 July 2020 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were among the 20 family members and close friends in attendance.

The ceremony was held within the guidelines enforced by the government during the pandemic. The bride wore a "Peau De Soie taffeta" vintage dress in shades of ivory by Norman Hartnell that belonged to the Queen and was "trimmed with duchess satin and encrusted with diamante". The dress was modified by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin to fit the bride for this occasion. The Queen Mary Fringe Tiara secured her veil.

The bride wore champagne-coloured satin Valentino shoes, which she had previously worn to the 2011 wedding of her cousin, the Duke of Cambridge.[20] Her bouquet consisted of "trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O'Hara garden roses, pink wax flower, baby pink astilbe, and sprigs of myrtle". After the wedding the bridal bouquet was placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey, following royal tradition that began with the Queen Mother.
