Princess Beatrice had a unique royal wedding—a surprise, socially-distanced ceremony, attended only by a small group of guests—and a unique wedding dress to go with it: a vintage Norman Hartnell gown on loan from none other than Beatrice’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

As is customary after the royals’ weddings, the Princess’s gown is now on display at one of the palaces, and she thinks her fans should see it. “It was an honour [sic] to wear my grandmother’s beautiful dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle,” she wrote on Twitter, quoting a tweet from the Royal Collection Trust about the exhibition.

In another tweet posted today—her first since she and Edoardo “Edo” Mapelli Mozzi announced their engagement in September 2019—she thanked fans for their well wishes. “Thank you to everyone who has sent in and tweeted their best wishes for our special day in July. Edo and I are so excited to embark on this new chapter together,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Edo is making headlines of his own, taking part in a rare interview with the Financial Times. He shared that his wedding day suit was the newest outfit in his closet (“I worked with a brilliant cutter and creative director called Campbell Carey. It was a wonderful process and for the rest of my life, every time I put on that suit I’ll feel happy.”), that his wedding ring is the object he would never part with, and that the best gift he’s ever given was a sculpture for his now-wife.

He described it as “a bronze figurative sculpture, which I commissioned from my stepfather, the sculptor David Williams-Ellis, for my wife’s birthday last year. His studio is next to my mother’s house so we’d see him in there every day covered in clay. It’s so special for us to have a piece of his work in our home.”
