About 20 guests attended, including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and her father, Prince Andrew. The wedding took place at All Saints Chapel, which is on the grounds of Royal Lodge, the home shared by Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.
The palace confirmed that the pair had married in a statement. "The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11 a.m. on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor,” it read. “The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines.”
Originally Beatrice and Edoardo had planned to marry on May 29 in a 150-guest ceremony in London but decided to cancel soon after the U.K.’s lockdown began in late March. The wedding date had reportedly already been postponed twice due to the scandal over Andrew’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Two official pictures were sent out the day after their small ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor. One shows the beaming couple leaving the chapel through its flower-covered archway.
On the other, they are outside the entrance with Beatrice's grandparents, the Queen, and the Duke of Edinburgh. Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Prince Andrew, Sarah Ferguson, Princess Eugenie, and the groom's parents and siblings attended the ceremony. However, the only members of the family to be included in the socially distanced official photos were Beatrice's grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip.
The Queen loaned Beatrice a vintage dress for the occasion, as well as a diamond fringe tiara which the monarch wore on her own wedding day in 1947.
The dress was remodeled and fitted by the Queen's senior dresser Angela Kelly and designer Stewart Parvin, according to Buckingham Palace.
Beatrice, who is ninth in line to the throne, also wore the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara loaned to her by her grandmother.
As for her wedding bouquet, it contained a sprig of myrtle, a symbol of hope, and love.
Princess Beatrice was given a unique wedding ring as well, traditionally, royal wedding rings are crafted from Welsh gold, and in recent years, Princess Eugenie, Meghan Markle, and Kate Middleton have all received a Welsh gold band as they said: "I do." But Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi presented his bride Princess Beatrice with stunning platinum and diamond design, which perfectly complements her engagement ring.
Who walked Princess Beatrice down the aisle? Brides in the UK aren't allowed to be walked down the aisle with their father due to social distancing regulations. However, an exception was made for Princess Beatrice because she had already been living with her father before the ceremony.
The magical wedding had a "Secret Garden" theme with beautiful flowers everywhere.
According to The Mirror, the couple's wedding reception was hosted in a marquee in the grounds of Royal Lodge.
Fourteen friends of the couple gathered in the marquee, reportedly named The Duke of York, where there were sofas, a jukebox, draft beer, and a dartboard.
According to reports, there was bespoke catering, cocktails, and a bouncy castle for the guests, as well as glamping pods on the grounds for guests to stay in overnight.
