Queen Elizabeth and her son Prince Andrew watched on as Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. The private royal wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11 AM on Friday 17th July. The event was held at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor. The private ceremony was also by The Duke of Edinburgh and close family members.

Princess Beatrice exchanged vows with real estate developer Edoardo in an intimate ceremony. Strict social distancing measures were in place.

The couple was originally meant to tie the knot on 29 May 2020 but had to postpone their ceremony amid the pandemic. The duo announced their engagement back in September 2019. The groom-to-be proposed his bride with a bespoke diamond ring, designed by Mayfair atelier Shaun Leane, during a romantic getaway in Italy. How cute, isn’t it?

Edoardo has a four-year-old son Christopher (affectionately known as Woolfie), from his previous relationship with American architect Dara Huang. Beatrice and Edoardo’s wedding is the sixth royal wedding in the past decade.
