After calling it the most memorable event of 2020, Holmes revealed that it had everything to do with the royal’s hidden details, which were gifts from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
“She wore the queen’s wedding tiara, and then she wore that Norman Hartnell dress,” she said. “That symbolism there—the queen’s granddaughter wearing these historic pieces. Everybody just went nuts, so that was a wonderful moment.”
While it may seem minor, Holmes admitted that these tributes are a major deal to the royal family. “Those things don’t happen on accident, the queen doesn’t just feel like, ‘Yeah. You can have a tiara,’” she explained. “That tiara holds so much meaning, and it will forever be Princess Elizabeth’s wedding tiara. So, to see it on the next generation of princesses was incredible.”
Holmes added, “If you have to get married during COVID, that’s a fun touch to have.”
Labeling Princess Beatrice’s wedding as the most popular royal event of 2020 might shock some people. There were a number of large royal fam stories, but perhaps a surprise wedding trumps all else.
Oh, to be royal.
