The royal family have released the first images of Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Princess Beatrice, 31, and her new husband Edoardo, 37, were married in a secret ceremony in Windsor on Friday 17 July, attended by her grandparents the Queen and Prince Philip.
In the official images shared on the Royal Family Instagram account, Her Majesty stands alongside the Duke of Edinburgh and Princess Beatrice, making sure to keep their distance from their newlywed granddaughter and her husband Edo.

It was announced on Friday that the Queen had attended the socially distant nuptials hosted at the Chapel of All Saints on the Windsor estate, with only 20 guests in total allowed to see Beatrice say her vows to Edoardo.
Until the release of the images there was no word on what dress the daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew had worn or any other tidbits of information.
Now we can see in the beautiful photos, that Princess Beatrice donned a stunning vintage gown confirmed to be on loan from the Queen’s own collection as well as a tiara won by Her Majesty on her own wedding day in 1947.
In the caption the Royal Family confirmed the ceremony had gone ahead: “Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi! The couple were married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on Friday 17th July.
“Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi celebrated their wedding with their closest family. The happy couple are pictured with Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
“Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen. The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947.”
The Queen, 94, the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, and Prince Andrew, 60, were at the small wedding with around 20 guests on Friday morning.
Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot surrounded by close family and friends, with the Princess of York donning a stunning vintage gown that the Queen wore to a film premiere almost 60 years ago.
The Queen and Prince Philip were driven from Windsor Castle, where they have been isolating since March, three miles up the Long Walk and through Windsor Great Park to the private church for the ceremony.
The Queen wore the same Peau De Soie taffeta dress by Norman Hartnell to the royal premiere of Lawrence of Arabia at London’s Leicester Square back on December 10 1962.
And in a show of generosity Her Majesty leant the same dress for Beatrice to walk down the aisle and marry Italian businessman Edoardo.
