Princess Beatrice got engaged in September 2019 to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi while on a trip to Italy. Since then, her father, Prince Andrew, has had to quit his royal duties. Now we know how Beatrice's wedding will be different... in a big way. 

We are well aware of the fact that Princess Beatrice will wed her fiancé Edoardo in 2020, however the event will be rather low-key in comparison to other recent royal weddings. Royal fans around the world got to share in the nuptials with a live broadcast from William and Kate's wedding in April 2011, Meghan and Harry's wedding in May 2018 and most recently Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's big day in October 2018.

No live broadcast 

Both ITV and the BBC have announced that they will NOT be broadcasting live for Princess Beatrice's big day. This fact in itself is going to make Beatrice's wedding very different from the other more recent royal weddings. According to some of Beatrice's friends, the bride-to-be is a lot more "discreet", especially when compared to her sister Eugenie.

Prince Andrew did not attend their engagement party 

Princess Beatrice was able to celebrate her engagement party in London in December surrounded by close friends, her mother, Sarah Ferguson, and sister Eugenie. Her father however, was absent from the event due to ongoing controversy regarding his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his recent disastrous interview on BBC Newsnight.

In insider has revealed that despite all recent controversy surrounding Prince Andrew, he will still play a major role on Beatrice's big day. With wedding plans underway, it is expected that Andrew will walk his daughter down the aisle. Unfortunately with no live broadcast, we will have to wait to hear more details as they unfold.
