Внучка британской королевы вышла замуж в старом бабушкином платье

31-летняя принцесса Беатрис и 37-летний итальянский бизнесмен Эдоардо Мапелли-Моцци тайно связали себя узами брака на частной церемонии в Виндзорском замке в прошедшую пятницу. Старшая дочь герцога и герцогини Йоркских обменялась клятвами со своим избранником в часовне Всех Святых в Виндзор-Грейт-Парке.

На скромный праздник пригласили всего 20 человек. Присутствовали родители невесты — герцог Эндрю и герцогиня Сара Йоркские, а также ее сестра, принцесса Евгения. Разумеется, главной гостьей стала королева Елизавета II, а также супруг Ее Величества, 99-летний принц Филипп, герцог Эдинбургский. На церемонии строго соблюдалась социальная дистанция.

How sweet! In a sweet tribute to her grandmother, #PrincessBeatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell, on loan from The Queen, for her wedding on Friday. It was remodelled and fitted by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin. She also wore the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara.

Princess Beatrice wore a vintage gown designed by Norman Hartnell which was loaned to her from the Queen, a statement from Buckingham Palace confirmed. It's a very moving choice from Beatrice, since the designer made the Queen's own wedding dress and coronation dress, and also created Princess Margaret's wedding gown. The beautiful wedding dress was made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves. It's encrusted with diamanté details and has a geometric checkered bodice, too. The statement also revealed that the gown was remodelled and fitted for Beatrice by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly and loyal dressmaker Stewart Parvin. Beatrice accessorised her wedding dress with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, which was another sweet nod — as the Queen wore the tiara on her own royal wedding day.

Same wedding tiara as the Queen! 👸🏻 Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Princess Beatrice initially canceled her May nuptials to property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. However, in a surprising move, the princess decided to tie the knot in a very private wedding ceremony, which took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor on Friday. The bride looked incredible in a vintage gown, designed by Norman Hartnell, and on loan from Queen Elizabeth. As well as borrowing her wedding dress from Her Majesty, Princess Beatrice also opted to wear a tiara which is very close to Queen Elizabeth's heart. As confirmed by an official press release from Buckingham Palace, Princess Beatrice chose the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara for her wedding day. Queen Elizabeth II also wore the intricate tiara at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. The tiara dates back to 1919 when it was made specially for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co., created from a necklace gifted by Queen Victoria. he fact that Princess Beatrice wore both a dress and a tiara belonging to her grandmother, the queen, for her wedding to Mapelli Mozzi shows that the two royals share a similar aesthetic. Beatrice's choices honored Queen Elizabeth's classic style, and undoubtedly made the latest royal wedding all the more special.

Ретро-образ Беатрис восхитил британцев. В этом платье, которое создал модельер Норман Хартнелл, королева Великобритании появлялась 53 года назад — на церемонии открытия парламента (1967). У тиары на волосах принцессы еще более интересная история. Ранее она принадлежала королеве Марии. Кроме того, в этом головном уборе шла под венец и сама Елизавета II. Жених же предстал в бледно-голубой рубашке, серых брюках и черном фраке.

Queen Mary Fringe Tiara 👸🏻 As with other recent royal brides including Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and Princess Eugenie, Queen Elizabeth lent Beatrice the sparkling headpiece, but this particular accessory is of special importance to the British monarch; the Queen wore the tiara on her own wedding day to Prince Philip in 1947, and her lending it to Beatrice is a real symbol of their relationship. Like many iconic pieces in the royal jewelry collection, the tiara originally belonged to Queen Elizabeth's grandmother, Queen Mary. It was crafted in 1919 by the British jewelers Garrard and Co., who used a diamond necklace given to Mary on her wedding day in 1893 by Queen Victoria to fashion the fringe design. The piece was also worn by Queen's mother, Queen Elizabeth, and then-Princess Elizabeth chose it for her wedding as her "something borrowed." But as the future monarch was getting ready for her wedding, the diamond tiara snapped. Fortunately the crisis was averted, and it was able to be repaired by the court jeweler. "Determined to wear this tiara on her special day, the princess’s tiara was rushed away by a police escort to the Garrard workshop, where it was repaired in haste and returned just in time for the ceremony," recounts the House of Garrard on its website. The piece was later also worn for Princess Anne's wedding to Mark Phillips in 1973, and fortunately still seems to be going strong. Beatrice's choice of tiara and a vintage Norman Hartnell dress, which was also on loan from the Queen, make it clear that making her grandmother a part of the marriage ceremony was important to the oldest York sister. The wedding was even "planned around the Queen's schedule," a source said. As the tiara is such a stunning piece, Beatrice kept her other jewelry to a minimum on her wedding day, wearing only her engagement ring and new gold band, which was designed by Shaun Leane. But unlike her sister Princess Eugenie, who also wed in Windsor in 2018, albeit in a much larger event, Beatrice opted for a veil, kept in place by the topper.
