A new behind-the-scenes photo from Princess Beatrice’s wedding has been revealed.

Princess Beatrice and now-husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi surprised royal fans last month when they tied the knot in a secret last-minute ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The royal couple had an intimate ceremony with no public presence, celebrating their marriage in front of the Queen and Prince Philip as well as Beatrice’s parents Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York.

At the time, Buckingham Palace treated royal fans to a small selection of intimate photos, while property developer Edoardo also shared a little photoshoot with fans.

But now Princess Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie has shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the royal’s nuptials, taking to her Instagram page with a lovely photo of the pair.

Sharing a photo of the two sisters on the eve of Princess Beatrice’s wedding with her over one million followers, Princess Eugenie wrote, ‘Happy happy Birthday dear Beabea🐝

‘Here we are on the eve of your wedding. Still rocking a scrunchie or hair accessory (since the 90s) and huge smiles on our faces. #happybirthday🥳🎉🥳🎉’.

It comes just weeks after the royal shared another lovely selection of photos in honour of her older sister.

Princess Eugenie took to her Instagram account with a series of photos of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo on their wedding day, writing, ‘Couldn't Bea happier (get it)🐝...

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
