The Princess followed tradition begun by her great-grandmother, The Queen Mother when she married King George VI in Westminister Abbey in 1923.

Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon paused to lay her flowers, whilst on her way into the Abbey, in memory of her brother Fergus who was killed at the Battle of Loos in 1915 during World War I.

Princess Beatrice, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, married Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small private service at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, on Friday, 17 July 2020.

Princess Beatrice carried a bouquet, in keeping with the royal tradition of springs of myrtle, as well as trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O’Hara garden roses, pink waxflower and baby pink astilbe.
