The ultimate something borrowed!

Something Borrowed: Beatrice wears Queen’s gown on wedding day

Buckingham Palace said Beatrice, who is ninth in line to the throne, wore a vintage ivory dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both loaned to her for the day by the Queen. The dress was worn by the Queen in 1966 to open Parliament.

The classic design is beautifully crafted from peau de soie taffeta and features a geometric, chequered bodice encrusted with diamanté.

The Queen’s personal dresser, Angela Kelly made amendments to the original to allow for Beatrice’s height and the modesty of a Royal bride in church. Stewart Parvin,  Her Majesty’s favourite dressmaker, remodelled and refitted the dress to Beatrice’s size and tastes.

The puffed organza sleeves show her playful style. A sleek trim of ivory Duchess satin at the bottom of the gown allows for added length.

Elizabeth wore the same tiara, made in 1919 from a diamond necklace given to Queen Victoria for her wedding, when she married Philip in 1947.
