A British royal wedding without all the pomp and ceremony of occasions gone by on Friday (July 17) as Queen Elizabeth’s fifth grandchild married in a small private ceremony.
Princess Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, married fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor with few guests in attendance and in accordance with health advice on public gatherings.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family.”
The BBC reported that her parents Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson were both in attendance.
The venue for the wedding was the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, close to where the princess grew up.
The couple originally planned to marry in May, but lockdown restrictions forced them to reschedule.
