Princess Beatrice wore a vintage Norman Hartnell dress for her wedding to Italian property tycoon Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi. The exquisite gown was first worn by queen Elizabeth II at the premier of “Lawrence of Arabia” in 1962. The gown is made from ivory taffeta and is encrusted with diamanté and has a geometric checkered bodice. The Queen’a vintage dress had to be remodelled to fit princess Beatrice’s measurements. The beautiful bride paired her exquisite ivory gown with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara that was worn by Queen Elizabeth II on her wedding day in 1947.
Princess Beatrice’s vintage choice was a touching gesture of sustainability respecting the current global pandemic.
