Princess Beatrice, elder daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, got married in a low key ceremony attended by close family members in one of the chapels in Windsor Castle recently (it might have been earlier today 17 July 2020).

I have yet to see any pictures from the wedding. Just curious if she wore a tiara for the occasion or not, that's all.

Its such nice news to wake up to
i read the photos wont be released till tomorrow so as not to over shadow Sir Tom's knighthod
That's good manners
As much as i was looking forward to a royal wedding its probably for the best done this way - i mean good for then really !

Wondering if the Queen wore this same outfit to her wedding...

Conferred the Honour of Knighthood on Captain Tom Moore at an Investiture at Windsor Castle in Windsor1

From what I read in some online British newspapers, yes Her Majesty wore the same outfit. She went straight from Beatrice's wedding to the investiture.

I also saw that Princess Beatrice purposely did not release any wedding photos because she did not want to overshadow Sir Tom's big day. Classy move...

One of two wedding photos of Princess Beatrice's wedding released today, and she borrowed her grandmother's tiara that she wore to her own wedding, who in turn borrowed it from Queen Mary, her grandmother.

Its lovelly how Bea wore a vintage dress
it was loaned by the Queen, a Nornan Hartnell creation and adjusticed to fit by the Queen's in house dress maker/ dresser Angela Kelly
And the Queen lent her her tiara that she herself had borrowed from her own grandmother on her wedding day
i would hope that the beautuful bride gets zero flack from anybody over this wedding
She waa indeed all class
Here is HM wearing the dress in 1960 something

And unlike for the then Princess Elizabeth the tiara stayed in one piece for this wedding !
the 21st century bride had already endured so much bad lack in the lead up to her very much scaled down big day

And because i love flowers
Bea's bouquet already lain at the tomb of the unknown warrior

The bouquet was fashioned out of trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O'Hara garden roses, pink wax flower, baby pink astilbe and, in keeping with royal tradition, sprigs of myrtle.

The Reverend Canon Anthony Ball laid the bouquet with Toby Wright, the son of the sub-dean of the Chapel Royal, Reverend Paul Wright

I think it was fabulous she borrowed some history to start her own. She looked lovely in it.

100 years from now someone like us will look back at these photos and know it was 2020 :(2
But that's a very stylish Queenly mask
Let’s hope that they know for sure that it was 2020 and not, 2020 or 2021 or 2022. Given the difficulties of developing vaccines for certain types of viruses there is unfortunately no guarantee that one can be developed, manufactured and administered to enough people in a short time frame. You are so fortunate in NZ Daisy. We too are fortunate in Australia, but not doing anywhere near as well as NZ.

Too true

And indeed we are indeed very fortunate here, i think geography gave us an advantage
I am very worried about you guys over there
its a lesson to us all to remain viligent
I think every country eased off restrictions too soon and (some) people just went back to nornal with not a care in the world
I hope you guys get Victoria and NSW under control again soon

id like to see a Transtasmen travel bubble start with Tazzie

Because its the royal jewles thread

I really do not get it why the Duchess of Cornwall favours the design of having a dart across the upper part of her bust, not the most flattering of looks, IMHO.

When did brides stop wearing necklases ? :(2
Beatrice isn’t even wearing earrings.

I guess sometimes brides want more focus on other things like the tiara and/or dress, or perhaps they decided that a necklace would make the overall look too ‘busy‘. I think the both of them look great without necklaces although I think Beatrice would have looked good with a small pair of earrings, echoing something of the style/shapes in the tiara or dress detail.

I should confess now..... I have a bias towards earrings. They are essential kit in my view (unless you are swimming/doing sport - then best to take them out in case they get lost or cause injury).

Princess Beatrice's dress appeals to me immensely. I loved it at first sight before reading that it was vintage. I agree that everything at the wedding was perfect. It was in very good taste.The flowers were beautiful and plentiful. I hope that she and her husband will be happy.

Edited to add: The Fringe Tiara is not my favorite, but no one could argue that it has been worn by many of the most important British royal brides.
