The Queen attended her granddaughter Princess Beatrice's secret wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Friday – and as usual, she looked the picture of elegance.

Her Majesty opted for a gorgeous turquoise pleated coat with matching hat, which was adorned with beautiful pink and red roses.

Underneath her coat, the Queen wore a patterned dress in the same shade and accessorised with a trio of pearl necklaces. She matched her outfit with a simple pair of black court shoes, and keeping with tradition, she wore a pair of white gloves by Cornelia James.

The colour turquoise is often associated with good fortune and health, so it seems fitting that the monarch chose to wear this shade for such a special day.

The newlyweds also received one of the sweetest gifts from the Queen – her blessing. It is tradition for the monarch's closest family members to seek her permission before they marry.

The couple were forced to postpone their original nuptials, which were planned for 29 May at the Chapel Royal in St James's Palace, due to the coronavirus pandemic. When details were announced by Buckingham Palace back in February, a statement read: "The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020.
