Princess Beatrice wedding: Royal to skip Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton traditions


Although few details are known about the big day, she could be set to do one thing very different from other royals, Laura Arrowsmith, lecturer in Fashion Business and Promotion at Birmingham City University, explained.

She told Express.co.uk: “I think it would be unlikely for Princess Beatrice to pick a designer that has already been worn at a royal wedding, such as McQueen, Peter Pilotto or Stella McCartney.”

Alexander McQueen designed the gown for Kate Middleton, Peter Pilotto helped on Princess Eugenie’s and Stella McCartney designed the second wedding dress for Meghan Markle.

While Beatrice may avoid choosing the same designer as other royal brides, she could still go for a British designer.

DON’T MISS

Royal brides including Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle all chose British designers for their gowns.

“I believe she will still opt for a British designer,” Laura added.

“A likely contender would be Burberry. Burberry is a global British fashion house with an Italian creative director which connects well to Beatrice’s Italian fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.”

The Princess could honour her husband’s upbringing and her own family by opting for an English designer with links to Italy.

Instead, Beatrice might choose a designer who she already regularly wears, the expert explained.

A statement from Beatrice and Edoardo read: “We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement.

“We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married.

“We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.”
