    Taking to the Kensington Royal Instagram account, Prince William and Kate Middleton shared an official photo of Beatrice and Edoardo standing two metres apart from the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh – due to social distancing rules – on their Story.

    The royal couple also retweeted a message from The Royal Family official Twitter account, which shared the same message alongside a photo of the newlyweds heading out of the church after their ceremony.

    Beatrice and Edoardo were originally meant to tie the knot on 29 May 2020 but had to postpone their big day amid the coronavirus pandemic. They announced their engagement in September 2019 after he proposed with a bespoke diamond ring, designed by Mayfair atelier Shaun Leane, during a romantic holiday in Italy.

    Their official wedding photos were released on Saturday night, shocking many royal fans around the world. The stunning images, taken by photographer Benjamin Wheeler, showed Beatrice and Edoardo leaving the church holding hands following the intimate service, which was attended by only their closest family members.

    Beatrice looked stunning in a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell, on loan from the Queen, while her new husband looked very smart in a morning suit.
