Getting Married in Italy is Not a Choice for Princess Beatrice
Princess Beatrice and fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi cannot wait to get married in 2020. The wedding venue and details have not been disclosed yet
Princess Beatrice, the elder daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Fergusson got engaged to her boyfriend of eleven months and the real estate tycoon 36-year-old Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The couple got engaged in a luxurious villa in Italy last week but announced their engagement later with the pictures clicked by her sister Princess Eugenie. According to the couple, they were extremely happy to share the news of their engagement. They stated that they shared common interests and values. Like her sister, Princess Beatrice is not a full time working royal. She has a strong career of her own but is often seen attending the royal events.
Italy is close to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s heart because of his Italian roots. The couple also got engaged in Italy before the formal announcement. According to the royal expert Ingrid Seward, Princess Beatrice would like to get married in Italy and pay a homage to her future husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s Italian roots but it might not be possible because her grandmother the Queen would not travel to Europe to attend the wedding. The wedding is most likely to take place in the family church St. Goeroge’s Chapel where her cousin Prince Harry and sister Princess Eugenie’s respective marriages also took place. However, princess Beatrice does not want her wedding to look like a rerun of her sister’s and wants something different.
According to the royal statement, the wedding will take place in the year 2020 but the details have not been revealed yet. Eodoro Mapelli Mozzi is the father of a child from his previous relationship with an architect. The royal family usually does not appreciate such unions much but times have changed now. Princess Beatrice’s first cousin Prince Harry also married a biracial divorcee Meghan Markle and it was not an issue. Also, according to the royal tradition, the first six people in the line to the throne are liable to get permission from the Queen before getting married. Due to her cousins’ new children, Princess bEatrice is now ninth in line to the throne and did not need any such permission.
