Another Royal Wedding has taken place and that too under the radar! Find out more about the recent Royal Wedding in this article!
The Royal Wedding of 2020
You would expect Royal Weddings to be extravagant and televised to millions around the world to watch and admire such as Kate Middleton and Prince William’s or Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s. Even the less popular Windsors have weddings that are announced well before its time and swamped in paparazzi – as seen in Lady Gabriella Windsor’s nuptial.
However, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli seem to be the exception!
Who is Princess Beatrice?
Princess Beatrice is a member of the British royal family. She is the elder daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York. She is ninth in line of succession to the British throne, followed by her sister, Princess Eugenie.
Who is the Royal Groom?
Edoardo Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi
Princess Beatrice is married to Edoardo Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, a British property developer. He is the founder and chief executive of Banda, a property development and interior design company.
He had proposed to Princess Beatrice in 2019 in Italy and the couple took their relationship into the spotlight in 2019 when they made their first public appearance at the National Portrait Gallery’s 2019 Gala.
He has a son named Wolfie from a previous relationship and has some blue blood too! Mozzi’s father, who was his mother Nikki Shale’s first husband, is Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi.
What was the Ceremony Like?
At 11 a.m. on the 17th of July, in a secret ceremony, the royal couple finally tied the knot after plans in May being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The ceremony was scaled down to accommodate with the government guidelines and so that it could be COVID-secure for the Queens Arrival.
They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.An Insider reports
The wedding took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saint at Royal Lodge, Windsor, which was officiated by The Reverend Canon Paul Wright, Sub-Dean of the Chapel Royal and the Reverend Canon Martin Poll, Domestic Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen.
As to stay adhere to the guidelines, no hymns were sung, even though there was an array of music played, including the national anthem, “God Save the Queen”—which was played, not sung.
During the ceremony, there was a recital of 2 of the royal couple’s favourite poems, which was read by their mothers; “I Carry You in My Heart” by E.E. Cummings and Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare. The recital of St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians Chapter 13, verses 1-13, was also made along with prayers.
What were Prince William and Kate Middleton’s reactions to the wedding?
The news of the wedding had sent a shockwave that reached all dedicated royal fans when the wedding was finally announced. The Royal couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William, took to their Instagram account a photo of an official photograph of Beatrice and Edoardo standing 2 metres apart from the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The post was captioned with a kind message:
“Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who were married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on Friday!”Kate Middleton and Prince William
Why was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle not at The Wedding?
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were both there for Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October of 2018, their absence on Friday shouldn’t be seen as a slight to the older York sister.
In the weeks following the Sussexes’ decision to step back from their senior royal roles, the family moved to Los Angeles. And given the current global health crisis, it would not have made sense for the Sussexes to travel internationally for the event, especially considering that California has recently seen an increase in cases of COVID-19.
At this point, it’s unclear when Harry, Meghan, and baby Archie might return to the UK next; it’s a trip that will likely depend on the status of the coronavirus pandemic, among other factors.
What was the Royal Gown like?
The Royal Gown
For the special occasion, Beatrice opted for a vintage ivory gown made from Peau De Soie taffeta, and trimmed with ivory Duchess satin. The dress, which belongs to Queen Elizabeth, was designed by Norman Hartnell, and then customized to the bride’s needs. It features organza sleeves, diamanté adornments, and a checkered, geometric bodice. The bride’s gown was the perfect royal bridal look, and shared some similarities with Princess Beatrice’s mother’s wedding dress.
What was the Tiara like?
It is tradition for the Queen to loan a tiara from her collection to royal brides on their wedding day. None of the current generation of royal brides had worn the same tiara that the Queen wore on her own wedding day back in 1947.
- The Duchess of Cambridge wore the Cartier Halo Scroll tiara
- The Duchess of Sussex chose the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau tiara
- Princess Eugenie wore Boucheron’s Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara
The fact that Beatrice was loaned the Queen Mary Diamond Fringe tiara is representative of their special bond.
At the end, no matter how small or secretive the wedding was, we at The Teen Pop Magazine wish Princess Eugenie and Eduardo Mozzi a very happy married life!
