Princess Beatrice Officially Cancels Her Royal Wedding
After rescheduling several times, Princess Beatrice and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have cancelled their upcoming nuptials. Here's why their plans are on hold!
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's wedding isn't going to happen any time soon. Beatrice's wedding had already been postponed twice in the wake of her father Prince Andrew's scandal, and she cancelled the Buckingham Palace reception that was planned to follow due to coronavirus concerns. But as People confirmed on Thursday, the global pandemic has officially caused the couple to call off the royal wedding for now.
Beatrice and her fiancé have no plans to reschedule "at this time"
Beatrice's big day, which was set to take place on May 29th, has become the least of the couple's concerns at the present moment. "There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time," a spokesperson for the royal couple revealed to People. "There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet".
The United Kingdom government announced on Thursday that the lockdown would continue for three more weeks. Since people are still being advised to practice social distancing measures, Beatrice's wedding would not have been able to take place. A source told People that despite the wedding being planned, "the invitations were never actually sent out" due to the uncertainty of the nation's circumstances.
Beatrice and Edoardo's wedding intended to be "more low-key"
While Beatrice and Edoardo had at one point been discussing the possibility of getting married in a private ceremony with friends and family in attendance, ultimately they realized that the coronavirus would force them to put their plans on hold for the time being.
Their wedding was intended to be a relatively modest affair in comparison to previous royal weddings, forgoing the traditional carriage procession "in keeping with their wishes for a more low-key" ceremony, according to a royal source.
