  • Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi got married Friday morning, in a private ceremony at All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park.
  • "Never has a mother been more proud," Beatrice's mom, Sarah Ferguson, wrote on Instagram.
  • Beatrice's sister, Princess Eugenie, also congratulated her, writing, "What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo."

Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor last Friday, in a pared-down ceremony that wasn't announced to the public until afterwards. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the royal couple's guestlist was dramatically reduced, with only their immediate family in attendance.

After the wedding, both Beatrice's mom, Sarah Ferguson, and sister, Princess Eugenie, took to Instagram to congratulate her. Sarah, Duchess of York, shared a quote about happiness and gratitude by motivational speaker Denis Waitley on Monday, writing, "Thank you to all the very special and kind people that took the time and trouble to send amazingly caring and supportive messages."

"Never has a mother been more proud than the wedding of Eugenie and Jack, and again with my Beatrice’s loving wedding to Dear Edo," Sarah continued. "I am so lucky with my girls, and now the best sons-in-law."

Eugenie, meanwhile, posted a series of official photos from the wedding on Sunday, writing, "Couldn't Bea happier (get it)."

"What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo," Eugenie wrote. "I am so proud of you and I'm so excited to support you in the next chapter of your life. We are going to have so much fun together."

"Happy wedding day to you both xxxx," she finished.
