She also made reference to her vintage wedding gown, which was loaned to Beatrice by her grandmother, the Queen, who first wore the gown for a State dinner in Rome in 1961. Her Majesty also wore the dress again to the London premiere of the film Lawrence of Arabia in 1962 and the State Opening of Parliament in 1966.

Over the summer, Beatrice and her husband, property developer Edoardo, surprised the world after they revealed they had secretly got married during the pandemic. 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.
Their ceremony was attended only by the couple’s parents, siblings, Edoardo’s son Wolfie, and the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

Meanwhile, with coronavirus restrictions limiting the number of guests at their reception, they celebrated afterwards with 14 close friends in the grounds of Princess Beatrice’s family home, Royal Lodge Windsor.

Beatrice, 32, and Edoardo, 37, were believed to have originally invited over 100 family and friends, but were forced to reduce their numbers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In a new interview with the Financial Times, Edo gave royal fans a rare insight into their married life together. “My favourite room in my house is the kitchen,” he said. “I’ve fallen in love with cooking again.
“It’s been the epicentre of our family life and we come together for every meal. We are lucky enough to have a small vegetable garden and we cook seasonally. Even my son has got involved.” He also admitted that the only “object I would never part with is my wedding ring”.
