Princess Beatrice donned £695 designer jacket in first appearance after mourning period

Princess Beatrice beat the cold with a £695 coat as she stepped out in London last week in her first appearance since the period of royal mourning for the Queen ended. 

In a newly released snap taken last Tuesday, the Queen’s granddaughter was seen out in London wearing a jacket with balloon sleeves.

It appeared to have been seemingly inspired by the type of outfits worn by Fergie in the 1980s, an area known for its flamboyant shoulder pads.

Bea’s £695 tan wool felt jacket was created by Ulla Johnson, an American whose designs are worn by Hollywood stars including Katie Holmes and Naomi Watts.

The princess, 34, who has a one-year-old daughter, Sienna, has had an image over-haul in the past few years.

She and her sister Princess Eugenie were previously mocked for their fashion sense. 

Bea replaced the black she’s been wearing since her grandmother’s death with a £695 tan wool felt coat designed by Ulla Johnson. 

Beatrice paired the statement jacket with a black dress and muted dark accessories.

Her appearance comes ahead of her mother, the Duchess of York’s birthday. She is turning 63 next week and she seems to have one birthday present in the bag already.

Her daughter clutched a colourfully wrapped gift as she was seen out and about.

The outing came days before she attended the  Lady Garden Foundation Ladies Lunch.

The 34-year-old royal attended the 8th annual Lady Garden Foundation Ladies Lunch at Langan’s Brasserie, in London, on Thursday.   

The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson was beaming in an understated black and green ensemble.

The mother-of-two opted for a black coat with two large bows on the front, over the top of a dark green dress. 

Beatrice looked enthusiastic at the lunch event, where she sported natural makeup with a dash of bronzer and mascara, a sculpted brow and a nude lip.

The Lady Garden Foundation is a national women’s health charity, raising awareness and funding for gynaecological health. 

The royal was joined by Lady Garden co-founder Astrid Harbord, jewellery designer Josephine Daniel and socialite Tamara Beckwith at the event.

The Princess of York has supported the charity in the past by running for the organisation under the number ‘552’, at the 2017 Hyde Park event for The Lady Garden. 

The royals officially came out of mourning on Tuesday, breaking their seven-day period of mourning. 

Princess Beatrice was seen at the Queen’s funeral where she was comforted by her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. 

Beatrice looked emotional as she joined her family to say goodbye to the Queen at Westminster Abbey, before the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor.

Her younger sister Eugenie, 32, father Prince and mother Sarah Ferguson were also in attendance. 

Following the Committal Service, Beatrice, Fergie and Edoardo were photographed walking away, presumably to the nearby Royal Lodge where the Duke and Duchess of York live, despite being divorced. 

In a touching moment, Edo reached out his hand and placed it on his wife’s lower back in a gesture of support. 

Beatrice and Eugenie were known to be incredibly close to their grandmother, Her late Majesty, and have been spotted looking emotional in public since she passed away on 8 September.
