Prince Andrew is again absent from new photographs released from his daughter Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The palace shared two more images to social media on Sunday to thank well wishers, but again the Duke of York did not appear alongside the happy couple in any of them.

Edoardo had initially posted the images on his own Instagram (before they were also released by the palace) alongside a poem by E E Cummings: I Carry You In My Heart, which he dedicated to his wife.

The poem was read during the wedding ceremony at Windsor Castle by the groom’s mother, Nicola Williams-Ellis, The Telegraph reports.

Only the couple’s parents and siblings, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, and Edoardo’s three-year-old son were present for the service, in line with UK coronavirus restrictions.

And while the Duke of York walked his daughter down the aisle, he remains absent from any photographs released from the day, in the wake of his continued involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

Beatrice’s mother Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, also read a poem during the ceremony. But she also does not appear in any publicly released photos.

Princess Beatrice’s stunned in a vintage dress on loan from the Queen, and refitted by Her Majesty’s dress maker, Angela Kelly, and Stewart Parvin.

The dress is made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves and is encrusted with diamanté with a geometric checkered bodice.

The 31-year-old princess also borrowed the same tiara worn by the Queen on her wedding day to Prince Philip.

The tiara was made for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co. in 1919, from a diamond necklace given by Queen Victoria for her wedding.

The bride’s ring was designed by Shaun Leane, while the groom’s is a vintage gold band designed by Josh Collins.

Beatrice and Edoardo said they were “delighted” to share the photographs and sent their thanks to the gardening teams at The Savill Garden and Windsor Great Park.

The couple had been due to get married on 29 May at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace in London, followed by a reception in the garden of Buckingham Palace. However, the service was postponed due to the coronavirus.
