ROYAL fans are all aflutter after Princess Beatrice revealed her upcoming wedding to a property tycoon.
Let’s take a look at the latest after she got engaged to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – and what we know about the nuptials so far.
When is Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi?
The couple got engaged in Italy in September 2019, before announcing the happy event to the world on September 26, 2019.
Revealing the proposal on Twitter, they said they were “extremely happy” to share the news.
They added: “We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and cant wait to be married.”
The wedding is taking place in 2020, though an exact date hasn’t yet been confirmed.
It has also emerged that the princess is planning on inviting her fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s ex-girlfriend to their wedding next year.
And wants their son to be the groom’s best man, a close friend has claimed.
The ninth-in-line, 31, to the throne announced her engagement to multi-millionaire property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, after a whirlwind 11-month romance last month.
Who designed the ring?
Princess Beatrice‘s ring was designed by British jeweller Shaun Leane.
The “modern classic”, as it’s been described, was designed in collaboration with Leane by Mozzi.
The central brilliant-cut diamond boasts tapered diamond shoulders and is set with pave-diamonds around the band.
Where will they tie the knot?
There are many royal residences where the couple would be able to wed – from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace and Bagshot Park.
But there’s a chance they could tie the knot in Italy, where the Duchess of York was seen recently.
Sarah Ferguson’s chauffeur posted a picture on Instagram of him and the Duchess at Villa Cetinale, around eight miles from Sienna.
He also tagged American Brenda Babcock and a company called Iles Events, who both specialise in destination weddings in Tuscany, The Express reports.
According to a friend, the pair are looking for a “low-key” venue to host their wedding and have reportedly considered “a marquee in Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s back garden”.
Tatler reports that Princess Beatrice’s wedding is set to be privately funded as the British public aren’t expected to cover the couple’s special day.
Who will be Beatrice’s bridesmaids?
It’s likely that Princess Eugenie will be her maid of honour or bridesmaid, having performed the honour herself at her wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October 2018.
She might also follow her sister’s example by asking little Princess Charlotte to perform bridesmaid duties.
And she has a host of young family friends and relatives who could take on that happy task.
