Princess Beatrice's Wedding Dress, Loaned From the Queen, Will Be on Display at Windsor Castle
Calling all royal fanatics, you'll soon be able to see Princess Beatrice's beautiful wedding dress up close and personal, if you're planning a trip to the UK, that is. On Monday, the palace announced that the wedding dress Beatrice borrowed from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, will be on display at Windsor Castle as of Sept. 24.
For her small, quiet wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on July 17 2020, Beatrice chose a special dress to match her intimate, private ceremony. The short-sleeved gown she wore is a vintage design from Norman Hartnell and was loaned to Beatrice by the queen, which she famously wore back in the 1960s. The dress was tailored to fit Beatrice and her modern style under the direction of Angela Kelly, personal adviser, dresser, and curator to The Queen, and British fashion designer Stewart Parvin.
Beatrice is following in her sister's footsteps by displaying the special dress. Back in February 2018, Princess Eugenie's wedding dress, designed by Peter Pilotto, was on display at the castle giving royal fans another glimpse at its beauty.
The vintage dress along with Beatrice's Valentino wedding shoes and a replica of her bridal bouquet will be displayed at Windsor Castle from Sept. 24, to Nov. 22.
