10 times Princess Beatrice was so stylish as a wedding guest

She loves a fancy headpiece or two

Carla Challis

Princess Beatrice’s fashion choices might not be as universally revered as Duchess Meghan 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. Beatrice wowed in a navy lace dress at the nuptials of Lady Gabriella Windsor in May 2019 and who could forget her gorgeous Ralph & Russo frock at sister Eugenie's big day?

Here, we take a look back at some of the royal's best wedding guest looks…

Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston's wedding, 2019

Beatrice was stunning in this navy lace tiered dress by Self-Portrait at the wedding of Lady Gabriella in May. The daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew teamed her outfit with some cream heels and white fascinator.

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.
