Princess Beatrice of York Marries at a Private Ceremony


Princess Beatrice has married Italian property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at a private ceremony in Windsor.

The wedding took place on Friday morning at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge. It was attended by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, along with other close relatives.

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

Under new guidelines for weddings in England during the pandemic, no more than 30 guests are allowed to attend and social distancing rules should be obeyed.

The royal wedding was originally due to take place on 29 May at the Chapel Royal in St James's Palace.



They have been engaged since September but the coronavirus pandemic interfered with the lead-up to their ceremony. Mapelli Mozzi proposed while the couple were spending a weekend away in Italy last year.

In March, shortly before the UK's coronavirus lockdown, the couple announced they were cancelling their wedding reception in the gardens at Buckingham Palace.

"The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor," the palace said in a statement.

"The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines."
