I think because Queen Victoria chose it to be that way. She was very controlling of Beatrice in all aspects of her life. In fact, she wouldn't have let Beatrice marry at all, but she made the princess promise to live with her (along with her own husband and children) at Osborne House for as long as Victoria was alive.

You are so correct. In Lance Salway's book, "Queen Victoria's grandchildren there is a mention that Queen Victoria was determined that Beatrice should never marry but remain the "prop,comfort and companion to her widowed mother to old age"
When Beatrice informed her mother that she fell in love with Henry of Battenberg the Queen was angry. She refused to allow her daughter to marry and did not talk to Beatrice for seven months. She only gave her permission when both Beatrice and Henry agreed to live with the Queen after their marriage.

There was lace, too, on the pointed neck line, and on the sleeves, for the Princess was a lover of, and an expert on, lace. One of her most treasured possessions was a tunic of old point d'Alencon which had belonged to Catherine of Aragon. Knowing her daughter's love of lace, the Queen now bestowed a signal favour upon her. She allowed Princess Beatrice to wear the Honiton lace which she herself had worn on her wedding day...It was a very precious possession to the Queen, and Princess Beatrice was the only one of her daughters to be given the opportunity to wear it."
So, given the above description of Beatrice's gown, does anyone know, when the say the dress is "trimmed with orange blossom" and that the overskirt is "held by bouquets of blossom", do they mean real, actual live flower blossoms, or ribbon flowers or embroidery or something?

Beatrice's wedding dress was beautiful. I love the swirl of flowers round the dress.
