Look blooming beautiful like Beatrice wearing The Vampire’s Wife
Princess Beatrice joined her sister Eugenie, as well as The Queen and the Duke of Sussex at a Buckingham Palace garden party today, and she couldn’t have picked a more perfect dress for the occasion.
It’s by The Vampire’s Wife, a brand you’ll probably have heard of since famous fans of their frilly dresses include Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Jodie Comer, Sienna Miller and Charlotte Riley. The list goes on!
We love the ditsy floral print and tiered skirt on this midi, which Bea teamed with a wicker bag from Zara and a very pretty headband. Tempted to copy this look for a wedding you’ve got coming up? The label was a popular choice for Meghan and Harry’s big day too so click (right) to get involved.
Or flirt with florals for less with the help of our edit below. This sequin trim number from Asos has got a very Vampire’s Wife-esque vibe to it…

Both known for their penchant for headgear, Beatrice opted for a maroon headband and let her auburn hair tun loose.
Meanwhile, her younger sister Eugenie tucked her hair back and opted for a cream fascinator which matched her designer dress.
Eugenie, who married Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel earlier this year, paired her dress with silver slingback heels, while Beatrice paired her floral number with black stilettos.
The sisters both opted for clutch bags, with Beatrice touted her possessions in a straw number and Eugenie carrying her things in a micro champagne-coloured case.

Meanwhile well-heeled guests were seen donning their best glad rags as they braved the rain to join the queue for the third royal garden party of the season.
The annual Buckingham Palace garden parties, started in the 1860s by Queen Victoria, are a way of recognising and rewarding public service and see people from all walks of life enjoy high tea on the lawn to the sounds of a military band.
Every year, the Queen invites 30,000 people to attend the parties and last year 8,000 guests attended the first soiree of the season, held at Buckingham Palace earlier this month.
The garden party is the third one this summer, with two more scheduled for June and July, one of which will be held at Holyrood Palace.
For the occasion men are asked to wear morning dress or lounge suits while women are invited to wear a ‘day dress, usually with hats or fascinators’.
The garden parties serve are an important way for the royals to speak to a broad range of people from all walks of life, all of whom have made a positive impact in their community.
At each Garden Party, around 27,000 cups of tea, 20,000 sandwiches and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed.
