To feel like Princess Beatrice has played a blinder!!!

She has managed to make be feel all emotional seeing her in the Queen’s dress and tiara. Didn’t think any Royal bride could top Kate but think Beatrice might have managed it by going ultra low-key.

I agree! She looked wonderful and how amazing to be wearing the same tiara as the Queen wore at her own wedding.

Absolutely! No £100k dress here, Granny's old party dress!

I've Ben so excited to see the pictures all day. She looks beautiful. The dress & tiara from HMQ are so special not to mention that both really suit her. I hope it was a perfect day for them.

I do wonder what happened to her original dress. I wonder if they are hoping to have a reception once a large party is possible & she has decided to keep her dress for that?

^ Been not Ben!

Yes, she looked beautiful and so happy.

I've just started a thread it say that I don't think the photos are great - we can't even see the dress!

So refreshing and lovely. Good on them.

I had a low key family only wedding and it was our perfect day. No fuss, just us.

confused

The idea it's 'granny's old party dress' is incredibly mawkish.

The poor woman wanted to be private. Can't you leave her alone?

I could see it clearly in the photos I googled.

I think it's been handled well. Same day as Sir Tom Moore, dad is in the press for all the wrong reasons and in the middle of a pandemic. I bet a bigger 'do' will take place at a later date.

Yeah this is what I think of when I think “Low key” 😂
... While wearing the reigning monarch’s dress

I was wondering if she’s pregnant and the original dress made it a bit obvious!

The dress is absolutely beautiful and those flowers around the church door!

classy!! well done indeed smile

MalificentJones Sat 18-Jul-20 23:21:08

I’m sure she could have got her hands on a new dress if that’s what she had wanted.

IdblowJonSnow Sat 18-Jul-20 23:23:01

God I bet she is so relieved at having the spotlight off after all that business with Prince A.
Well dodged.
Not a royalist by any stretch but hope they had a fab day.

Choppedupapple Sat 18-Jul-20 23:25:12

She rocks

Spanishmama0114 Sat 18-Jul-20 23:25:28

She looks lovely, good on her, her original plans were scuppered by both the pandemic and her father, none of these her doing but it looks like the marriage was more important to her than a wedding so I really wish her the best of luck

Pomegranatepompom Sat 18-Jul-20 23:27:03

She looked lovely - hope it was a perfect day.

Not a royalist but HOLY MOLY!!!!! Love that it’s a vintage dress and LOVE the tiara!! Absolutely beautiful, she looks radiant and it’s a great timeless style star

The dress is lovely, so much nicer than Kare or Meghan's dresses.

Gosh that’s a fabulous dress. Very pretty, unique, perfect for summer and environmentally friendly.
Good on her.
