Anniversary wishes are in order for Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who are celebrating their first year of marriage.

After getting engaged in September 2019 and then having to postpone their wedding like so many others due to the pandemic, the princess and the property tycoon chose to get married in a private ceremony on 17th July 2020.

The pair tied the knot at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Beatrice’s childhood home. The wedding was a small and private event attended by the Queen, the late Duke of Edinburg and their close relatives.

Princess Beatrice’s wedding gown was the ultimate ‘something old’ and ‘something borrowed’ item she could have had. The Queen personally loaned her the dress she wore in the 1960s, which was originally designed by couturier Norman Hartnell – the same designer who created Her Majesty’s and her sister, Princess Margaret’s wedding dresses.

Like many princesses before her, Princess Beatrice paired her dress with a tiara – the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, the very same sparkler her grandmother wore on her big day.

Months later, in May 2021, the couple announced they’re expecting their first child together. The baby is expected to be welcomed earthside in autumn 2021.
