Princess Beatrice touches on wearing the Queens gown for her wedding

Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Wednesday on July 17 at Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge at Windsor in a secret ceremony, attended only by their close family, including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

"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", the newlywed wrote on Friday, retweeting the Royal Collection Trust's tweet. "It was an honour [sic] 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", she wrote on Twitter, quoting a tweet from the Royal Collection Trust about the exhibition.

Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo, 37, suprised everyone when they secretly married mid pandemic on July 17. 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.

Her tweet read, "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". "The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947".

Meanwhile, in another message, she gushed over her dress.

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.

Thanks to the gown and tiara, the bride had the sweetest solution to the "something borrowed" wedding tradition. 'You have raised the bar to new levels by wearing your grandmother's stunning vintage dress and her wedding tiara.

The details of the wedding ceremony were not released in advance and the couple was originally supposed to get married at the Chapel Royal, followed by a reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace - but their big day has been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The royal wedding dress will be on display at Windsor Castle from 23 September until 22 November 2020. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh also attended the wedding.
