A wedding is always a reason to celebrate! But in the case of siblings it is sometimes also a reason for competition. Especially if you are a member of the royal family.
In normal families, no one sees or cares about your wedding, except your close friends and family. So if your wedding decorations are lackluster, your cake will taste like cardboard and you forget to say, “I will,” nobody will remember in a few years.
If you are royal, the whole world cares about everything you do, especially your wedding. It will be broadcast on television in most countries, which means that it must not only be lavish, but must also comply with all other royal weddings that have come before it.
Princess Beatrice’s proposal
Princess Beatrice recently engaged her friend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
“The Duke and Duchess of York are pleased to announce the engagement of Princess Beatrice to Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi,” read the royal family’s Instagram page.
“Her Royal Highness and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi were engaged to Italy earlier this month. The wedding will take place in 2020. This photo was taken by Princess Eugenie in Italy. “
“Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli said Mozzi; “We are very happy that we can share the news of our recent involvement. We are both so excited to embark on this life adventure together and can’t wait to get married. “
How will Princess Beatrice’s wedding differ from Princess Eugenie’s?
The younger sister of Beatrice, Eugenie, had a lavish marriage with Jack Brooksbank last year.
Her marriage took place in the St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also married last year.
Eugenie borrowed a tiara for the special day from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
But instead of competing with her brother or sister for who can have the biggest and best wedding, those who are close to Beatrice say they might opt for a smaller ceremony.
“She has talked about a smaller affair in the past,” a source told People.
“Beatrice and Eugenie are super close, but they are very different,” another source told the outlet. “Beatrice is more serious and Eugenie is the extrovert extrovert, she is so bubbly and fun. Beatrice is more reserved and discreet. She stops more, she is very polite, very well educated but more formal and calmer in her personality, so I think that it will be a very different wedding from that of Eugenie. “
Although the wedding may not be as large or dramatic as her sister’s, it will still be a royal ceremony, meaning that certain aspects of the service will be similar.
Only the guest list is sufficient to distinguish the wedding from others. Undoubtedly, all her royal cousins and aunts and uncles will be invited, as will the queen.
The ceremony is said to take place in the spring or possibly later next year.
We will have to wait until more finite details are released to see how the royal weddings will really pile together.
