Sprigs of myrtle were included in Princess Beatrice’s breathtaking bridal bouquet. Reverend Anthony Ball, Canon of Westminster, places the bouquet on the Unknown Warrior’s Grave, in-keeping with royal tradition.
Both the Queen and Prince Philip attended the wedding ceremony that was held in secret after the couple’s original plan to wed at the Chapel Royal of St James’s Palace, in London, on 29 May was postponed by coronavirus.
Socially distanced wedding –
Smiling with pride, the Queen and Prince Philip may have been required to keep their distance from newlyweds Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – but a Royal relationship has rarely been closer. Beatrice married on Friday wearing both a tiara and vintage dress generously lent to her by her grandmother.
The Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, fashioned in 1919 from a necklace given to the current Queen’s grandmother by Queen Victoria, is a treasured heirloom.
