It cannot be said that Beatriz de York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were very lucky. Their relationship began after they met at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooskbank’s wedding on October 12, 2018 and have since become inseparable. Despite their criticized beginning, they did not hesitate to go for it all, to live together in the first months of their relationship and to announce their commitment when not even a year had passed since they began their courtship.
However, the wedding of your dreams could never happen. Despite the fact that her sister Eugenia de York had a link with all the pomp that little or nothing had to envy that of Prince Harry, of higher rank, Princess Beatriz had to marry practically in private. The fall from grace of her father, the Duke of York, due to his connection in the Epstein Case, was a slab for the wedding, which had to go as unnoticed as possible, especially if the bride wanted her father to be the one will lead to the altar.
They would finally get married on May 29, 2020 in the Royal Chapel of St James Palace with a private reception at Buckingham Palace, which was not bad at all. Of course, there would not be many guests and of course no carriage ride or too much public exposure. But then the coronavirus arrived, forcing the reception at Buckingham Palace to be suspended and the bride and groom to be left alone with a wedding to the officiant and two witnesses. It is one thing to want to get married and another to do so, so Princess Beatriz and the Italian-born aristocrat considered the idea of getting married in 2021, when the danger is expected to have passed.
However, Princess Beatrice has her revenge ready. If she marries in 2021 it will not be to do it in such an intimate way, or at least from the point of view of a royal, but to do it in a big way. She loves the idea of saying ‘yes, I want’ in the same place she was christened and of holding the wedding banquet at Buckingham Palace, as the Dukes of Cambridge did in 2011, but why can’t she have a great wedding public and televised?
They don’t want to pay for Prince Andrew’s mistakes
According to the Daily Mail, which quotes friends of Queen Elizabeth’s fifth granddaughter, Princess Beatrice thinks that a grand wedding could lift the spirits of the population after suffering from the coronavirus. This is how the link between Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh was seen on November 20, 1947, which was described by Winston Churchill as “a touch of color on the hard road we must travel”. Of course, comparing the historical moments and comparing yourself with your grandparents is very dangerous and surely will not go well.
More importantly, it seems to her to vindicate herself as members of the British Royal Family and not be prejudged by the mistakes that her father might have made, and in which she has no fault or responsibility. In addition, the unfair couple hide their wedding when their sister Eugenia did not. Anyway, not everything depends on it. Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi need the machinery of Buckingham Palace and it is not in their interest to challenge the Queen.
