Princess Beatrice's wedding outfit was made up of a vintage dress she borrowed from Queen Elizabeth and a pair of bridal heels she had previously worn twice. 


Princess Beatrice's wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi was the start of a new beginning, but her choices of accessories were anything but new.

The royal bride who got married in front of a small group of family and friends chose to walk down the aisle in her favorite shoes — a pair of heels by Valentino.

In a post shared on the royal family's Instagram page, Princess Beatrice was captured posing for a portrait with Mozzi who lovingly smiled at his wife.

The second slide gave fans a more detailed look at the Princess's bridal outfit, including the pair of heels she had previously worn twice as a wedding guest. 


Beatrice first wore the stylish heels while attending the royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton in 2011. At the time, she paired them with a pink coat dress alongside a dramatic ribbon-shaped fascinator.

The Princess rocked the shoes a second time in July 2014, to Prince Amedeo of Belgium and Elisabetta Maria Rosboch's wedding in Rome.

Like her daughter's, Ferguson's dress had partial sleeves and was complemented with full veils.


However, Beatrice's pair of shoes is not the only part of her wedding outfit that was not new. The 31-year-old Princess got married in a dress and tiara, which she borrowed from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The vintage ivory Peau de Soie taffeta dress by Norman Hartnell was customized to Beatrice's needs, and it featured organza sleeves and diamante adornments.

Interestingly, the dress which made Princess Beatrice look like the perfect royal bride shared similarities with her mother, Sarah Ferguson's wedding dress.

Ferguson married Prince Andrew in a Linda Cierach gown in 1986, and the dress was reportedly adorned with the bees and thistles of the bride's coat of arms.

Like her daughter's, Ferguson's dress had partial sleeves and was complemented with full veils. The two dresses also had ivory Duchess satin and were made up of intricate adornments and fitted bodices.


Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Princess Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi got married in a private service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints.

The ceremony recorded the attendance of close family members such as The Queen, the bride's parents Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York and the bride's sister, Princess Eugenie.

Despite choosing to recycle a vintage dress and an old pair of heels, Beatrice looked just as stunning as other royal brides in the past who had rocked brand new stylish shoes. 

Without a doubt, the royal family boasts of a lot of stylish women, and as expected, Beatrice looked exactly like the princess that she is.
