Princess Beatrice Breaks Silence on Her Royal Wedding Day

Princess Beatrice Returns To Twitter For First Time In Over a Year For This Reason

Princess Beatrice thanks fans three months after surprise wedding

"Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen", the royal family previously confirmed on Twitter.

"It was an honour to wear my grandmother's attractive dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle", the newlywed wrote on Friday, retweeting the Royal Collection Trust's tweet.

At the time, Buckingham Palace said: "The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17 July..."

Her tweet read, "It was an honour to wear my grandmother's attractive dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle".

"It was an honour to wear my grandmother's handsome dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle", she added.

Beatrice and Edo were married in a romantic service in July, along with the guests included her grandparents, and the Queen and Prince Philip, along with her parents, Prince Andrew of York and Sarah, Duchess of York. Thanks to a photo of the British monarch in the dress from 1962, fans can see the subtle changes that were made for Beatrice's nuptials, including the addition of puff sleeves and a new hem.

Many fans praised the royal for wearing her grandmother's dress, with one calling it a "beautiful gesture".

The last time Princess Beatrice tweeted was over a year ago in September 2019 to announce her engagement to Edo. I hope you have a long and happy marriage that is blessed with love & joy'.

Last month, Beatrice broke the silence about her secret wedding, claiming it was "so much fun" in a video for the hospice "Forget Me Children" announcing the winners of the organization's 2020 Kids Summer Art Competition. The reason for this being the princess's wedding gown choices. While the couple were due to marry at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace, they actually ended up marrying in Windsor. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also attended the wedding.

Princess Beatrice's wedding dress is now on display at Windsor Castle, as per royal tradition.
