On Friday 17 July, Princess Beatrice and her partner, property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, were married in a secret ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The nuptials were attended by several members of the royal family, including the Queen the Duke of Edinburgh and the bride’s parents, the Duke and Duchess of York.

The couple’s wedding was originally supposed to take place in May, but their reception had to be cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The most recent royal wedding before Princess Beatrice was that of her sister, Princess Eugenie, who married wine merchant Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in October 2018.

Five months prior, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are now living in Los Angeles, were married in the same location.

One of the most anticipated aspects of royal weddings is finding out the designer of the bride’s gown.

The Duchess of Sussex opted for a design by former artistic director of Givenchy Clare Waight Keller, while Princess Eugenie wore a dress created by fashion designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos.

As Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s wedding was held in secret with few people in attendance, photographs have not yet been released by Buckingham Palace in celebration of their union.
