Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on July 17 was certainly more private than her younger sister Eugenie’s celebration the year before. While the public was given a handful of information regarding what transpired at the royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor on that fateful day, there are some family traditions that Queen Elizabeth’s second eldest granddaughter surely subscribed to.

The precious metal comes from a nugget from Clogau St David’s gold mine and was a tradition started by the queen mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, for her ceremony in 1923. Celebrities who married in recycled wedding dresses (or promised to next time) Guests will typically enjoy a fruitcake at the reception View this post on Instagram A post shared by CrystalKai999 (@royaltyallovertheworld999) on Dec 30, 2017 at 2:46am PST Since fruitcakes are doused in rum or brandy, the alcohol keeps it from spoiling quickly. This unique trait allowed the royal-assigned baker to work on elaborate designs for longer periods. Later on, the longevity of the fruitcake made it possible for the royal couple to auction off the pieces of the cake to raise money for their respective charitable organisations. Princess Diana’s now 39-year-old wedding cake was available in 2018 and still completely edible.

In 1858, Princess Victoria (Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter) wed with myrtle in her bouquet and it has since become a non-negotiable for the royal bride. The flowering plant is picked from Queen Victoria’s 170-year-old garden and is said to symbolise love and marriage.

A post shared by The Royal Family (@theroyalfamily) on Jul 18, 2020 at 2:01pm PDT This may seem like a common practice for most weddings but it was royal ancestor Queen Victoria who made a trend of it. Queen Victoria wished to showcase the finest of British silk and lace from Honiton at the time and women who desired to emulate her majesty followed suit. It soon became popular for brides to wear white, and also as to stand out among their guests. Meghan or Diana – which royal wore the best wedding dress?

The fragrant flower became a constant symbol of the couple’s love and Prince Albert would present his bride with orange blossom-themed jewellery to mark their milestones together. The orange blossom became a staple detail incorporated into her descendants’ wedding gowns for generations to come. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
