We love a Royal wedding. The Pomp and ceremony! The designer gown! Seeing all the celebrity guests roll in in their outfits! But Princess Beatrice’s wedding due to take place on May 29th could be a much quieter affair.
The princess was due to marry her beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, with the Queen hosting their reception at Buckingham Palace, but due to new Church Of England instructions on the Coronavirus pandemic, the princess may only be allowed to have two guests attend her ceremony.

Finally we have some details about Beatrice and Edo’s wedding! In an official statement, BP said: ‘The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020. The couple became engaged in Italy in September 2019. Her Majesty The Queen has kindly given permission for the ceremony to take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace. The ceremony will be followed by a private reception, given by The Queen, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.’ As stated in my stories, I’ll upload a post with more details to the blog once I get home as I’m out! #PrincessBeatrice #edoardomapellimozzi #RoyalWedding
The Church Of England has advised that the number of people attending church weddings during the Coronavirus should be limited to five – the bride and groom, the minister and two witnesses.
A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the couple have already decided to put their reception on hold and are seeking advice on holding a smaller ceremony.
Shame, a Royal Wedding would have been the perfect antidote to all the current doom and gloom!
