The Queen has reportedly worn this gown on a number of occasions. And, it was remodelled for Princess Beatrice’s wedding by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin, British fashion designers. During alteration, the “underskirts and bubble hem were removed from the gown.
Not only her dress but Princess Beatrice’s tiara was also a tribute to her grandmother. She wore the beautiful Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, on loan from her grandmother, The Queen.
