Princess Beatrice opens up about her secret wedding for the first time since tying the knot

WHEN Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this year, the couple kept the details of their special day largely under wraps.

But now the newlywed has opened up about her secret nuptials for the first time.

During a video call for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Beatrice spoke to the winners of the charity’s Kids Summer Art Competition – including one aspiring artist who had drawn a picture of “Russell bear” attending a wedding.

She said: “I had the chance to get married this summer, and it was so much fun.

“Do you think this might be my wedding? I am not sure I looked as smart as Russell Bear does in his outfit.”

The blushing bride borrowed a dress from The Queen for her special day and added statement sleeves to her grandmother’s gown.

An insider told People magazine Beatrice had not always planned on wearing a dress belonging to her grandmother for her wedding – which was supposed to take place in May but was postponed as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

However, the Princess reportedly had a “last minute change of heart” about her dress and asked to borrow the gown that was also crafted by The Queen’s wedding dress designer Norman Hartnell. 

As well as the dress, Beatrice also wore the same tiara The Queen wore when she married Prince Philip in 1947 to double up on her “something borrowed”.

The Queen, 94, and Duke of Edinburgh, 99,  joined Prince Andrew, 60, at the scaled-down Covid-secure Windsor wedding in July.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple drove to the South of France for their honeymoon after their intimate wedding which was attended by just 20 guests.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Princess Beatrice will become an aunt for the first time next year when Princess Eugenie welcomes her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank.
