Princess Beatrice marries in private ceremony at Windsor

Sunday, 19 Jul, 2020

Princess Beatrice - the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York - has married partner Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at a secret Royal Wedding in Windsor, this morning.

Guidelines in place to stop the spread of Covid-19 were followed, the palace said, with around 20 guests attending.

Beatrice was initially due to marry in May but coronavirus delayed the plans.

Beatrice and Edoardo Wednesday in the chapel opposite the York family's home, Royal Lodge, joined by around 20 guests, including Beatrice's father Prince Andrew and mother Sarah Ferguson.

A florist to the Royals has provided a glimpse behind the scenes at Princes Beatrice's secret Windsor wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Beatrice and Edoardo's decision to cancel their wedding was announced in April of this year.

The princess will become stepmother to Mr Mozzi's young son Wolfie.

The pair reportedly reconnected in the fall of 2018 and started their romantic relationship.

Elizabeth is not the only royal bride to wear this tiara - Princess Anne chose it for her wedding to Mark Phillips in 1973, and again, it was a loan from Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

The news comes ahead of Captain Tom Moore's knighthood, which is due to be given to him by the Queen at Windsor Castle later today. She is not a full-time royal but works for artificial intelligence company Afiniti, as vice president of partnerships and strategy.

At Friday's low-key ceremony, which had a limited number of guests in line with coronavirus guidance, staff were seen bringing bouquets out of a van.

"They're clearly very eager for the Queen to emerge so that the wedding had to occur before she moves around Balmoral so that this was a wonderful prospect".

No official wedding photographs have yet to be released at this time, however, it's likely the palace will eventually share Princess Beatrice's wedding portraits with the public.

Their households have known just one a different for a lot of several years. Mappelli Mozzi is a count and the son of a former Olympic skier.
