Recently, Princess Beatrice celebrated her royal wedding and held a private ceremony in Windsor. For the exclusive occasion, the bride surprised everyone by wearing her grandmother's special dress.
According to a Buckingham Palace press release, Beatrice's stunning outfit was a vintage dress from the queen's own closet. Designed by Norman Hartnell, the exquisite ivory dress is made of Peau De Soie taffeta and adorned with satin. With organza sleeves and a bodice with stone and geometric appliqués, the dress leaves nothing to be desired.
Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin, who regularly work with the queen, remodeled the dress and made it fit perfectly for the bride. The queen wore the dress for the first time for Lawrence of Arabia's debut at the Odeon in Leicester Square, London, in 1962.
Buckingham Palace announced in a statement that the wedding took place in accordance with all relevant government guidelines and social distancing rules amid the coronavirus pandemic. Present were only close family members of the royal family, including the queen, Prince Philip and Beatrice's parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York.
It has been reported that the Queen left the wedding ceremony early to grant Captain Tom Moore a cavalry at Windsor Castle. Moore, 100 years old, was honored with the inauguration ceremony after raising millions of dollars in aid for coronavirus by the National Health Service in the United Kingdom.
