Cousin to Prince William and Harry, Princess Beatrice has married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small ceremony on Friday.

A statement produced by Buckingham Palace explained that the wedding occurred “at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge [in Windsor],” and was attended by a “small” group and “close family” members such as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

The Royal Family’s official Instagram account shared photos taken of the wedding with two separate posts. The first one read, “Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen. The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947.”

The second said, “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi have been touched by the warm wishes they have received since their wedding, and are delighted to share two additional photographs of their happy day.”

The original date for the wedding was scheduled for May 29 at St. James Palace in London and a reception at a garden at Buckingham Palace, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The decision to postpone the wedding came after the U.K. government extended the shutdown. At the time in April, the palace told Fox News, “Princess Beatrice and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward to getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances. In line with government advice for the U.K. and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May.”

The couple’s plans were also affected due to Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew’s involvement with Jeffrey Epstein, who was a socialite and sex offender. In March, Andrew had refused to cooperate with the FBI investigation that was being conducted regarding Epstein.
