A black fascinator rested atop her head with only a simple pair of golden hoop earrings. She completed her minimal look with a low bun with loose strands curled in front of her face. Beatrice also wore a long-sleeved dress. Her hair was left open, held back from her face with a large black headband that featured a bow. Her husband stood beside her, wearing a black suit, white dress shirt, black waistcoat and tie. A gold medal was pinned to his suit jacket.
