Princess Beatrice’s wedding day look was fit for a queen — quite literally!

For her intimate, secret ceremony on Friday, the 31-year-old royal donned a diamond-fringe tiara, which her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II wore during her own wedding to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, on November 20, 1947.

The tiara was made for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co. in 1919 from a diamond necklace that Queen Victoria gifted Mary for her wedding.

In addition to the tiara — which the queen saved especially for Beatrice because they're "exceptionally close," according to People — the bride wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell.

The gown was also on loan from the queen, who wore it at the London premiere of the classic, 1962 film “Lawrence of Arabia." The dress is made from taffeta in shades of ivory and trimmed with ivory duchesse satin. From the bodice to down past the hips, the dress is encrusted with diamanté.

Beatrice updated her look to give it a more modern feel, dropping the white gloves and opting for organza sleeves. The dress was also remodeled and fitted by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin.

Beatrice's wedding to the Italian property developer was originally set for May 29 at Chapel Royal of St. James’s Palace but was postponed due to the pandemic.

Despite the setback, their surprise celebration on July 17 seemed absolutely beautiful. They were wed at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, and in attendance were the queen, her husband Prince Philip, the couple's parents and siblings, and Mozzi's son, Wolfie.

"The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May," a statement from Buckingham Palace read. "Working within government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family."
