Princess Beatrice has taken to her Twitter account to thank the public for their warm wedding wishes for her and her husband, Edo Mapelli Mozzi, whom she married in a secret ceremony in July. She also said wearing her grandmother’s dress “an honour.”

In two tweets, the Princess thanked the public and spoke about wearing her grandmother, The Queen’s dress on her wedding day.

Regarding her wedding, Beatrice tweeted, “Thank you to everyone who has sent in and tweeted their best wishes for our special day in July. Edo and I are so excited to embark on this new chapter together,” and ended her tweet with a heart emoji. She also included two of the official photos from her wedding.

She also retweeted the Royal Collection Trust’s tweet about her wedding gown on display saying: “It was an honour to wear my grandmother’s beautiful dress on my wedding day, I hope many of you are able to visit the exhibition which is still open at Windsor Castle.”

Prior to today, Princess Beatrice hadn’t tweeted since her engagement announcement on 26 September 2019.

Princess Beatrice married Edo in a private ceremony on 17 July 2020; the couple had planned to marry in May of this year, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials. The couple then chose to have a private ceremony in July with just a handful of people present at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Windsor. Beatrice wore The Queen’s remodelled Norman Hartnell dress and the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara – the same tiara The Queen wore at her wedding in 1947.
