Princess Beatrice was sadly forced to delay her wedding due to coronavirus. The couple then married in a quiet ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor. Beatrice grew up at the Royal Lodge, so this would have been a sweet moment for the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, attended the wedding in a social distanced manner.
But, despite the rather unique set up for a royal wedding, Judi explained to Express.co.uk how Princess Beatrice and her fiancé’s wedding was “more romantic” than other royal weddings.
The body language expert, who has worked on Celebrity Big Brother, said: “Did Edo and Bea gain emotional value from their socially-distanced and cut-down wedding? Their body language together suggests they did.”
Thanks to social distancing, Princess Beatrice managed to harness a privacy most royal brides can’t enjoy.

This was particularly true for the groom, Judi claimed.
She said: “Edo in particular seems to enjoy some more relaxed moments with his bride, smiling down at her proudly rather than squirming as some royal grooms have been seen to do with the cameras and eyes of the world on them.
“The lack of formality and protocol meant Bea’s hand was top in the casual clasp as they walked together, rather than being held in a more formal gesture, where the groom holds his hand up for the bride to rest hers on.
“The distancing from others makes Edo and Bea’s poses even closer and this more romantic proximity is also helped by a simple and more easy-to-wear dress choice from the Queen’s wardrobe.”
Beatrice honoured her grandmother the Queen in a number of ways, including wearing a secondhand dress from Her Majesty.
The gown was tailored and tweaked to create a truly stunning and unique dress.
Princess Beatrice’s wedding tiara was also a lovely nod to Her Majesty.
The bride stepped out in the glittering Queen Mary’s Fringe tiara. On Queen Elizabeth’s wedding day, the tiara caused a commotion when it snapped as it was placed on the bride’s head, and had to be quickly mended by a jeweller from Garrard before she could make her way to Westminster Abbey.
Princess Beatrice’s wedding flowers also hid a touching message about “patience” after she waited so long to marry.
In Beatrice’s bouquet was trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink O’Hara garden roses, pink wax flower, baby pink astilbe.
The designer of the bouquet, Patrice Van Helden Oakes, said: “They wanted to keep it natural, with dusky pink roses, British flowers and a vintage look.”
Sweet peas are associated with pleasure and saying thank you while astilbe represents patient dedication.
