Princess Beatrice finally wed her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace revealed on Friday. The royal nuptials were scheduled for May 29, but as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, were postponed. Although the event was unique in many ways, it still managed to follow a significant tradition for royal brides, according to a BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond.

He told BBC Breakfast: “While this was not quite a normal royal wedding, one tradition for royal brides was followed.

“Beatrice’s wedding bouquet was placed on the tomb of the unknown warrior in Westminster Abbey.”

The Reverend Canon Anthony Ball laid the bouquet with the son of the sub-dean of the Chapel Royal, Reverend Paul Wright.

The bouquet was fashioned out of trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O’Hara garden roses, pink wax flower, baby pink astilbe and, in keeping with royal tradition, sprigs of myrtle.

For the ceremony, Princess Beatrice wore a modified vintage dress belonging to the Queen.

She also wore the diamond Fringe tiara, which the Queen wore on her own wedding day in 1947.

This was the first time the Royal Family have been together since the lockdown was implemented.

The Queen was seen later that day knighting Sir Captain Tom Moore.

The wedding was originally to be held at St James’ Palace, which only seats 150 people.

This is compared with the 800 that Windsor Castle’s chapel seated for Eugenie and Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

The reception was going to be held at Buckingham Palace.

Prince Andrew was confirmed to have walked his daughter down the aisle.

However, he does not appear in any photos released so far by the Palace.

The older royals have been isolating in Windsor Castle since the beginning of the lockdown.

Due to frail health and old age, they are both in the high risk category in terms of the pandemic.
