Princess Beatrice Stuck to *This* Royal Rule When It Came to Her Wedding Bouquet
ICYMI: Princess Beatrice quietly wed her fiancée Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last week. And while we got a few details on the Princess of York’s dress and tiara (both borrowed from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth), we recently learned all about her stunning wedding bouquet.
For her floral piece, the 31-year-old royal opted for an arrangement with trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink o’hara garden roses, pink wax flower and baby pink astilbe. However, Beatrice also made sure to stick to the royal rules by including sprigs of myrtle. This tradition started with Queen Victoria and continued with the Duchess of Cambridge's marriage in 2011. This pretty flower symbolizes good luck in love and marriage.
According to Town & Country, the floral arrangement was designed by Patrice Van Helden, co-owner of RVH Floral Design. Not to mention, the company also was responsible for Princess Eugenie's wedding flowers.
Keeping to bouquet tradition wasn’t the only way Beatrice paid tribute to Her Majesty. She also wore an ivory Norman Hartnell dress that was previously donned by her grandmother, but she also completed the look with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, which is the same headpiece the queen wore on her wedding day in 1947.
We’re not totally surprised she dipped into the monarch’s closet, since Queen Elizabeth gave her granddaughter a super-special wedding gift ahead of the nuptials: her blessing. (It’s also a tradition for members of the royal family to receive the monarch’s approval prior to tying the knot.)
Like queen, like princess.
