During the wedding ceremony, music was played, but absent of singing and hymns including during the national anthem, “God Save the Queen.”

The 31-year-old wore a vintage Normal Hartnell dress and a diamond tiara that was also worn by the Queen on her wedding day in 1947.

The 36-year-old groom wore a morning suit as his wedding attire.

Families of the bride and groom have known one another for several years. The newlyweds's relationship was reported to have started after meeting again at Princess Eugenie's wedding.

The parents of the bride expressed their excitement over Princess Beatrice's engagement saying that they were "thrilled" with the news.

Prince Andrew and Sarah have maintained an amicable relationship following their divorce in 1996.

The nuptials have also been overshadowed by questions about Andrew’s friendship with the late American sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
