Her eldest daughter Princess Beatrice may have tied the knot in secret on Friday morning, but by the afternoon it appeared to be business as usual for Sarah, Duchess of York.

Sarah tends to pre-record her Storytime videos, so it's likely she will have been able to enjoy the day fully with her daughter and her new son-in-law Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

A palace statement confirmed on Friday: "The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17 July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor. The small ceremony was attended by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant government guidelines."

Like her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, Beatrice also married in Windsor but rather than hosting the ceremony at St George's Chapel, she chose the more private Royal Chapel of All Saints.

The Grade II-listed church is located close to the Princess' childhood home, Royal Lodge Windsor, where Prince Andrew, Sarah, Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have all been isolating during the coronavirus lockdown.
