Publication of photos of Princess Beatrice’s private wedding | UK News


Buckingham Palace has released new photographs of the marriage of Princess Beatrice and real estate mogul Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.While the new photographs show the couple with the Queen and Prince Philip from a distance, no photos have been released of the couple with Beatrice’s father, Prince Andrew.

The photos, released on Saturday, also show the couple leaving the church after the service.

They were married on Friday in a small family ceremony at the Chapel Royal of All Saints at the Royal Lodge, Windsor, Buckingham Palace said.

Beatrice wore a vintage Norman Hartnell taffeta dress, on loan from the Queen, and the Queen Mary diamond-fringed tiara, also on loan from the Queen, who wore it on her wedding day.

She was taken down the aisle by Andrew, Buckingham Palace said. The Duke of York retired from royal office after disastrous Newsnight interview about his friendship with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, and is back in the spotlight after his longtime partner’s arrest on July 2 Ghislaine Maxwell.

Royal commentators believed that the queen’s loan of her wedding dress and tiara had meaning. Writer Penny Junor suggested it was a “show of solidarity” that “says a lot” about her feelings for Beatrice. “It’s really heartwarming,” she said, describing Beatrice as “one of the innocent victims of Prince Andrew’s sorry saga.”

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, agreed: “It says a lot more than anything that has happened.”

The Queen described the family event, which was attended by the Duke of Edinburgh, the couple’s parents and their siblings, as ‘very kind’, as she spoke to Captain Sir Tom Moore and his family, after the ‘knighted at Windsor Castle on Friday. to raise millions for the NHS.

In an unusual move, the wedding was not announced in advance, the ceremony was held in private, and photos of the event were not immediately published.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said, “The couple have decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings after the postponement of their marriage in May.

“Working under government guidelines, the service was in line with the unique circumstances while still allowing them to celebrate their marriage with their closest family.”

Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi had planned to get married on May 29 in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, but the ceremony has been postponed due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

Mapelli Mozzi, a millionaire property mogul known as Edo, and Beatrice started dating in the fall of 2018 and got engaged over a weekend in Italy.

It is believed to be the first time that the Queen and Philip have attended a family reunion since the lockdown. Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank were also reportedly among the guests.
