Princess Beatrice’s “Something Old”? Her Treasured Valentino Wedding Shoes
Princess Beatrice made a last minute request to borrow the Queen's dress on her wedding day
Princess Beatrice looked stunning in one of the Queen's vintage dresses on her wedding day to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last Friday, but it's been revealed that the royal hadn't always planned to borrow her grandmother's frock.
After a reported last minute change of heart about her dress, Beatrice, 31, "made a request [to loan one from the Queen], and that was kindly granted – and it looked amazing," a friend of the bride and groom told PEOPLE. The pal added: "It was touching for both of them."
The bride's beautiful dress, originally designed by Norman Hartnell, is made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves. It is encrusted with diamanté details and a geometric checkered bodice. The gown was remodelled and fitted for Beatrice by the Queen's dresser Angela Kelly and loyal dressmaker Stewart Parvin.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!! Wonderful.
But the original dress had no sleeves so the "last minute" included time for alterations....
Her definition of cooped up differs from mine. The house has over 25,000 sq feet and sits on 22 acres of land with a view. There is a pool and tennis court and extensive gardens.
Long ago in a galaxy far away I worked bridal.
If asked, with cooperative participants, I could have added those sleeves in a couple hours.
Wonderful choices all around, love the look, love the history of the tiara -- gift from Queen Victoria to Mary of Teck, worn by HRH Elizabeth and HRH Anne for their weddings, love everything we know!
Lovely, lovely , lovely bride!
She’s quite talented IMO - I’ve taken a few memorable pictures of my own but she captures the essence of what I imagine their personalities to be just based on all the pictures of the boys growing up around Princess Diana JMO
This wedding just has character and warmth and love and respect and joy.
It's a great credit to Beatrice and Eduardo and to their families.
Prince Charles & Duchess of Cornwall make a major change to their Twitter account
Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, have made an interesting change to their Twitter account. The royal couple have decided to change the header on their official Clarence House page; it now reads The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. In contrast, their Instagram account still has the header Clarence House. Charles and Camilla have amassed more than 900,000 followers on Twitter, and some 1.2million followers on Instagram.
The couple have followed in the footsteps of Charles's son and daughter-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. William and Kate decided to alter the display name on both their Twitter and Instagram pages back in May, changing it from Kensington Palace to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It was seen by many to be reflective of their increasingly prominent roles within the royal family.

I love Beatrice's wedding dress. Her entire wedding (what we can see of it) looks so lovely. Exactly what I was hoping. THOSE SLEEVES! I knew she would somehow pick a fierce feature. I wholeheartedly approve.
Lady Colin Campbell. RF really scraping the bottom of the barrel now.
