Princess Beatrice stepped out in Windsor on Wednesday evening wearing something very unusual for her—a major pair of earrings!
Princess Beatrice and her husband, property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, were on hand Wednesday evening for the charity preview night of the Royal Windsor Horse Show’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee spectacular. They were in the audience to preview the two-hour show, “A Gallop Through History,” which will celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign. The show, hosted by Alan Titchmarsh, will run for four nights, with the final night taking place on Sunday evening. That performance will be broadcast on television, and if she is feeling able, the Queen is expected to attend.
Royals will also be in attendance for the other three performances. The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester attended on Thursday, the Earl and Countess of Wessex will be in the audience on Friday, and the Princess Royal will attend on Saturday. Following the national anthem, the royals take one last lap around the arena in their car, just as Beatrice and Edoardo did on Wednesday.
And some members of the royal family will also be taking part in the show itself. Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of the Wessexes, will drive the carriage that belonged to her late grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, during the event. Delightfully, most of the Queen’s great-grandchildren are also expected to make a special appearance in the show on Sunday evening.
For the charity preview night, Princess Beatrice arrived wearing a floral evening gown by a British brand, The Vampire’s Wife. The Duchess of Cambridge is also a fan of dresses from the company.
And, most exciting for us, Beatrice wore some major jewelry! The princess is known for her ultra-minimalist approach to jewels, frequently wearing no major accessories at all, or just her usual rings and delicate bracelets.
This time around, she added a major pair of earrings to her ensemble. The enormous diamond earrings featured a modern feather design.
Here’s another look at Beatrice’s earrings for the evening. Here’s hoping this is the first of many bejeweled surprises that we’ll see in the coming days!
