The 99-year-old looked happy and healthy when he stepped out for his grand-daughter’s big day four months after going into lockdown with the Queen at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh was pictured beaming as he watched the newest married royal couple pose for snaps outside the church.
Bea, who will turn 32 next month, tied the knot in a small intimate ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor.
Her father Prince Andrew was among the small party of guests to witness the couple exchange their vows.
Royal expert Victoria Arbiter said Prince Philip looked “amazing” in the official wedding photos.
She tweeted: “Love the vintage feel of these photos from the dress and tiara to the the style of the pix themselves.
“Classic in every sense and really beautiful. Pretty special to think the Queen wore the same tiara on her wedding day almost 73 years ago.
“And can I just add Prince Philip looks amazing! Congratulations Bea and Edo! Here’s to a lifetime of happiness.”
One royal fan wrote on Twitter: “Princess Beatrice looks so beautiful in the official wedding photograph.
“The Queen looks lovely too. Nice to see Prince Philip out and about too.”
Others commented on his appearance, saying he looked to be in good health.
One royal fan said: “How wonderful to see Prince Philip in attendance looking so handsome and spry.
“You’d never think he was 99!”
Another person pointed out how the duke looked steady on his feet without the need for a walking stick.
They said: “The shape of His Royal Highness Prince Philip is impressive.
“He is 99 years old and he still stands without a cane.”
A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were married in a small family ceremony on Friday 17th July.
“The ceremony took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, with the kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen.
“The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May.
“Working within government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.”
