PEOPLE reported, “The Queen saved this grand tiara specifically for Beatrice. It was always reserved for her as they are exceptionally close. [It is] arguably the most sentimental [piece] lent from the Queen yet.” The Queen wore the gown that Beatrice wore on several occasions in the ’60s.
The couple was originally supposed to get married at the end of May, but the wedding was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The couple wed in front of a very small crowd and no hymns were sung to avoid spreading the virus.

In addition, “The Queen was the guest of honor, and it was very important that she was there. It was planned for some time, and everyone had to be extremely cautious leading up to the big day because the Queen was in attendance. They had to make sure everyone who was attending was in perfect health.”
Congrats to Beatrice and Edoardo! It looks like a beautiful and sentimental wedding.
