Princess Beatrice wedding: How Princess of York’s ring breaks royal tradition

The British jeweller, Shaun Leane, designed Princess Beatrice’s wedding ring. The ring has a stunning platinum and diamond design, mixing Victorian and Art Deco elements.

Mr Leane also created the Princess’ engagement ring when the couple announced their marriage plans last year.

The wedding band also fits together with Princess Beatrice’s engagement ring.

Mr Leane crafted both of the rings by hand, which are set with diamonds, after consulting with the royals.

The design breaks tradition as most royal brides over the last century have had gold wedding rings.

The Queen’s wedding ring is made from a nugget of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau mine, according to the jewellers Clogau.

Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Princess Diana, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall all used the same gold in their bands.

In a statement, Mr Leane said: “I am thrilled for the happy couple, it warms my heart to see two wonderful people unite in love as much as Edoardo and Beatrice do.

“I feel very honoured to have been a part of their journey and to have been involved in the very special moments of designing and creating the engagement ring and wedding ring.

The Queen loaned Princess Beatrice a vintage dress for the wedding held at the Royal Chapel of all Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.

Her Majesty was photographed wearing the gown in December 1962 at a performance of Lawrence of Arabia.

The Queen also loaned a diamond fringe tiara which the monarch wore on her own wedding day in 1947.

The Queen and Prince Philip attended the wedding with a small amount of guests.

Buckingham Palace released pictures of the royal wedding on Saturday night.

More photographs were released on Sunday as the couple were “touched” by the public’s reaction.

In a statement Buckingham Palace said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr Mapelli Mozzi have been touched by the warm wishes they have received since their wedding, and are delighted to share two additional photographs of their happy day.”

One photograph showed the newly weds leaving the chapel through a flower covered archway.

Another photograph portrays the couple outside the entrance with Princess Beatrice’s grandparents, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi originally planned to marry in May but had to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic.
