Princess Beatrice spent the evening before her wedding cosying up to her sister, Princess Eugenie, at their childhood home.

Princess Beatrice secretly tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi back in July, after her original wedding was postponed due to the global pandemic.

And now her sister, Princess Eugenie, has delighted royal fans by giving them a glimpse of Beatrice’s pre-wedding plans in a previously unseen picture.

Sharing the snap in honour of Beatrice’s birthday, 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.”

The nuptial had to be scaled-down from the original plans to around 20 guests due to the pandemic. Guests are said to have included The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh – who have been self isolating at Windsor Castle – as well as Beatrice’s dad Prince Andrew.

A friend of Beatrice’s told the publication, “A massive wedding was out of the question because of coronavirus.

“They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.

“So many guests were disappointed not to make the big day but understood the reason for it.

“They needed to make the wedding Covid-secure and safe for the Queen so what better way than the All Saints Chapel with reception on site at the Royal Lodge.

“They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right.”
