Princess Beatrice’s fashion choices might not be as universally revered as Duchess Meghan’s or Duchess Kate’s, but her sartorial prowess is quietly applauded by fashion insiders who admire her outfits – especially at weddings. Case in point: the playful Philip Treacy fascinator worn to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011 put her firmly on the fashion map. And with Princess Beatrice prepping for the next royal wedding - her sister Eugenie’s October nuptials to Jack Brooksbank – we’re as eager to see what Beatrice wears as we are the wedding dress. It’s not yet been confirmed who Princess Eugenie’s bridesmaids will be, but with signs pointing to Beatrice being her maid of honour, we take a look back at some of her best wedding guest looks.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, 2018
Regarded as one of the best dressed guests at the May royal wedding, Princess Beatrice wore a stunning teal Roksanda gown with a coordinating headband by Stephen Jones and a pair of nude Gianvito Rossi nude heels – the same pair the Duchess of Cambridge wore when introducing Prince Louis to the world.
Jamie Murray Wells and Lottie Fry’s wedding, 2014
This winter wedding called for cosy pieces; Princess Beatrice kept warm in a £960 blue and grey wool Carven coat paired with a navy fedora and black boots.
Prince Amedeo and Elisabetta Maria Rosboch’s wedding, 2014
Princess Beatrice rewore the slinky nude Valentino dress she’d previously worn for Prince William and Kate’s royal wedding for these Roman nuptials.
Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee’s wedding, 2013
Princess Beatrice loves a good headpiece, and this Philip Treacy hat is definitely one of her favourites – she’s been seen wearing it on more than a few occasions. Her cobalt blue dress offset the monochrome hat to perfection.
Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s wedding, 2011
Turning to turquoise for her cousin’s wedding, Princess Beatrice’s Angela Kelly hat and jacket was jazzed up with a heavily embroidered skirt.
Sam Waley-Cohen and Annabel Ballin’s wedding, 2011
She definitely isn’t one to shy away from a bold colour – just look at her purple and lilac ensemble worn to a wedding back in 2011.
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding, 2011
The hat that spawned a thousand memes, Princess Beatrice’s Valentino coat and Philip Treacy chapeau combo worn to Prince William and Kate’s wedding is now iconic.
Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly wedding, 2008
Perhaps her most colourful fascinator to date, this amazing Philip Treacy design was an early indication of Beatrice’s affinity to an avant garden headpiece. We loved it!
