Princess Beatrice Weds Property Tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi While Flaunting The Queen’s Dress and Jewels
Windsor was once again brought to life with royal wedding bells on Friday, 17th July 2020.
In the latest announcement from Buckingham Palace, Princess Beatrice, 31, at long last tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, at an intimate Royal wedding in Windsor. The couple had delayed their wedding plans for over two months since all gatherings were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Luckily for the Princess and her groom, however, as of the 4th of July 2020, gatherings of 30 people and under have been permitted, with certain guidelines.
The secret ceremony was held at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor, with special permission by Her Royal Highness, the Queen of England. It was attended by the Queen and Prince Philip, who had spent the months following March in lockdown. In fact, Prince Phillip wasn’t even present this year at the Queen’s official birthday festivities.
Needless to say, in addition to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Beatrice’s parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, and sister, Princess Eugenie, along with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, were all in attendance. It is difficult to say who attended from the groom’s side besides his parents, Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Williams-Ellis.
During the wedding, the Princess truly honored her Grandmother in every manner possible. If you’ve stuck long enough to follow the Queen’s engagements ever since she occupied the throne back in 1952, you might have gotten a sense of deja vu after seeing the Princess. Why does her wedding dress look so familiar? Let us do the honor of cutting the surprise for you. This is the same dress that Queen Elizabeth wore to the Lawrence of Arabia premiere in 1962.
That’s right! To make her wedding extra special, Princess Beatrice decided to borrow a dress from her beloved Grandmother, Her Royal Highness. The elegant masterpiece of a dress was created by Norman Hartnell, beset with diamante, and a bodice so beautifully diametrically checkered. The material is a graceful Peau De Soie taffeta of different ivory shades, with organza sleeves, and an ivory Duchess satin trim. The dress was specially fitted and remodeled for the blushing bride by the Queen’s designer, Angela Kelly, and Stewart Parvin.
To top off her wedding look, Princess Beatrice wore the same tiara her darling Grandmother had worn on her wedding day in 1947. This marvelous piece of jewelry was originally made by Garrard and Co. for Queen Mary out of a diamond neckless that her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria, had gifted her.
From what we’ve gathered about the couple, they seem to have known each other since Beatrice’s sister got married in 2018. That wedding was their second time meeting and seems like twice was enough to seal the deal. The couple went public with their relationship in 2019, and not too long afterward, Edoardo popped the question while they were vacationing in Italy. A Count himself, Edoardo is a multimillionaire owing to his ginormous real estate business, Banda, which he birthed back in 2007. His clientele list includes nothing but the richest of the rich people on the lookout for suitable homes.
