Princess Beatrice's husband shares the romantic poem he read at their secret wedding

royals 29/07/2020

Last week we were in awe of how gorgeous Princess Beatrice looked at her wedding day.

The Princess wore a stunning dress lended from her grandmother, The Queen, and donned the very same tiara that Her Majesty wore to her own wedding to The Duke of Edinburgh.

While most details Princess Bea and husband Edo's intimate wedding have been kept private, a few details from their big day have been revealed - including the romantic poem that was read during the ceremony.

The short service featured both personal touches and current pandemic health practices: In accordance with government guidelines, no hymns were sung, but the bride’s and groom’s mothers (the Duchess of York Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson and Nikki Williams-Ellis) read two of the couple’s favorite poems, Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare and “I Carry Your Heart with Me” by American poet E.E. Cummings.

Bea's new husband shared Cummings' 1952 love poem to his Instagram account alongside three stunning photos from their big day.

Read the poem below.

I carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
