Eugenie describes her joy at sister Beatrice’s nuptials

Princess Eugenie has described her sister Princess Beatrice's wedding as a "complete joy".

Wishing Beatrice and her new husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi a happy wedding day, Eugenie opened up about her pride at seeing her older sister marry in a private ceremony on Friday.

The princess and property tycoon Mr Mapelli Mozzi wed in front of a handful of family including the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.

Beatrice's something borrowed was a vintage ivory Norman Hartnell gown which belongs to the Queen, and the monarch's own wedding day tiara – the Queen Mary diamond fringe.

Eugenie wrote on Instagram: "Couldn't Bea happier (get it)" – with an emoji of a bee.

She added: "What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo.
