PRINCESS Beatrice’s new stepson was spotted for the first time at his dad’s wedding in a new photograph online.
Four-year-old Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie, was best man at the wedding of his dad Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, and Princess Beatrice, 31.
The couple tied the knot at an intimate 20-person service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, in Windsor on July 17.
Little Wolfie, who is the son of Edoardo and his former fiance Dara Huang, could be seen leaving the church behind his dad, although his face isn’t visible.
The little page boy can be seen dressed smartly in a shirt and trousers.
The previously-unseen snap was taken by photographer Benjamin Wheeler, and was shared on Instagram this week by wedding florist Rob Van Helden Floral Design.
The caption read: “What a week….!!! Thank you SO, SO MUCH for all your most kind messages….
“SO grateful for the honour and privilege to have been part of the wedding of Her Royal Highness, Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Wishing them a life filled with love and happiness [sic].”
The photo was later deleted after racking up 1,800 likes, including from groom Edoardo himself.
The royal family released four official photographs following the surprise wedding, and a fifth was shared on social media by Edo.
This image is the first to offer a glimpse of Wolfie at the special nuptials.
Following their wedding, the couple are said to be enjoying a honeymoon in France.
A source told the Mail: “The wedding was arranged in a couple of weeks, and with lockdown their choice of honeymoon destinations was severely curtailed.
“They weren’t going to bother but at the last minute they decided to pack up the car and head out. They’re a very down-to-earth couple.”
It is also thought they will plan a trip to Lamu Island, off Kenya, where Edo’s family own a house.
While Edo has been linked to the York family for years, the pair fell out of touch until they were reacquainted through friends two years ago.
A friend told HOAR: “Beatrice and Edo have the same circle of friends and were introduced through a mutual chum.
“They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together.”
It wasn’t until her sister Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018 that Beatrice began to consider a romance.
Beatrice’s reluctance to think of him as a suitor is likely down to the fact he was engaged to architect Dara Huang, 37.
The pair announced their engagement in September last year, with their original May 2020 wedding date postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
We shared how Princess Beatrice’s ring was designed by British jeweller Shaun Leane.
And friend of Beatrice’s said that a massive wedding was out of the question because of coronavirus.
