Princess Beatrice made a sweet nod to her mother with her sparkling choice of accessories at the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein yesterday.
The royal, 34, attended the Jordanian prince and his wife Rajwa’s wedding in Amman with her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi and the Prince and Princess of Wales.
For the evening state banquet hosted by Jordan’s royal family, the mother-of one opted for a pale pink embellished satin piqué gown with ruffled sleeves and wore her strawberry blonde locks down, with the York tiara.
The choice of tiara was particularly significant, as it was gifted to her mother Sarah Ferguson for her wedding day to Prince Andrew on 23 July 1986, and has not been worn in public for 20 years.
The accessory was made even more special by the fact that Princess Beatrice rarely wears tiaras, having only donned one before, for her wedding in July 2020.

The tiara was purchased from London-based jewellery Garrard for Sarah Ferguson to mark her wedding to Prince Andrew in July 1986
The York tiara, which is made of platinum and diamonds with a leaf detail, is a rare breed, as it was brand new when Fergie debuted it on her wedding day at Westminster Abbey
Beatrice wore a baby blue sparkling dress and a hair bow for the wedding ceremony, but switched up her look for the evening reception at Al Husseiniya Palace.
She donned the resplendent pink gown from designer Reem Acra and added a touch of glamour with a diamond scroll tiara.
Up until Beatrice’s surprise appearance in Jordan yesterday, the tiara had only been worn by her mother, who is commonly known as Fergie.
The York tiara, which is made of platinum and diamonds with a leaf detail, is a rare breed, as it was brand new when Fergie debuted it on her wedding day at Westminster Abbey.
It was purchased for her from London-based jeweller Garrard by her in-laws, the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
The beautiful head piece remained the Duchess of York’s property even after her split from Prince Andrew in 1992, and she wore it on several occasions following her divorce.
However, the author eventually stopped wearing to public engagements, with one of its last appearances being the White Ball, where Fergie wore it with a flattering black gown in 2001.
Tiaras are only worn by members of the royal family at official engagements such as state banquets, the annual Diplomatic Corps reception, and the State Opening of Parliament, which would not ever be attended by Beatrice, as she is not a working royal.
Beatrice has only worn one tiara before, on the occasion of her wedding, where she was lent the Queen Mary’s Diamond Fringe Tiara, which had been worn by several members of the royal family before her, including the late Queen Elizabeth II and the Princess Royal on her wedding day to first husband Mark Phillips on November 14, 1976.
Beatrice, who is a long time friend of Prince Hussein, was effortlessly glamorous in a shimmering sequined gown as she arrived for the lavish wedding yesterday.
She lit up the room in her floral lace £675 dress, in dusky blue, from Needle & Thread as she came in with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 39.
She opted for a more cinched silhouette with a black belt, which matched an ornate ribbon styled in her hair.

Beatrice kept her make-up look simple, accessorising with statement silver earrings and a rectangular clutch.
Elsewhere her husband put on a dapper display in a navy single-breasted suit, adorned with a cornflower blue tie.
The happy couple appeared in high spirits as they chatted while walking to the ceremony.
In September, it was announced that Sandhurst graduate Hussein, 28, was set to wed Saudi Arabian-born architect Rajwa, also 28, after an engagement ceremony at the bride-to-be’s family home in Riyadh.

And as the wedding reception got underway, royals from around the world donned all their finery to attend the celebration, where the bride and groom cut their wedding cake, which was made up of seven tiers.
Earlier, guests watched the nuptials of Sandhurst graduate Hussein and Saudi Arabian-born architect Rajwa, also 28, in the garden of the Zahran Palace.
Rajwa dazzled in a white gown by Lebanese designer Elie Saab, which featured a lengthy train embroidered with flowers, and a sparkling diamond tiara.
