Reportedly, Princess Beatrice dreams of an Italian marriage to her fiancée, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, but not when Queen Elizabeth gets her way. Royal experts believe that Elizabeth Beatrice will force the knot in England because she refuses to fly over Europe. But will Princess Beatrice shelter Her Majesty at the expense of her husband?
Princess Beatrice wants an Italian wedding
It is undeniable that Princess Beatrice now has many ties with Italy. Not only is her future husband from the country (along with his aristocrat family), but he also introduced Princess Beatrice in an Italian village called Positano.
According to Daily Mail, an expert in the royal family, Ingrid Seward believes that Beatrice and Mozzi would like to get married in Italy. The two apparently like to spend time in the region and she thinks it would be a nice backdrop for the ceremony.
“I think Beatrice wants to get married in her heart in Italy, where Edo is from, but the queen will not fly to Europe in any way for the wedding, so it will have to be in England,” said Seward.
Seward noted that Princess Beatrice is a people lover and will probably try to accommodate everyone on her big day. Although the new groom and bride would like to exchange vows in his home country, Queen Elizabeth’s desires may dictate otherwise.
Queen Elizabeth forces an English wedding
Despite Beatrice’s wishes, Queen Elizabeth is reportedly forced to hold the wedding in England. Her Majesty is now well into the 90s and only rarely leaves the country.
With Princess Beatrice ninth in line for the throne, it would be a big problem if Queen Elizabeth missed the ceremony. More than likely Princess Beatrice and Mozzi will make the knot in England instead of Italy.
This is not the most ideal situation, but at least the two have been able to share their involvement in his home country. Hopefully his entire family can fly to the wedding if it is held in England.
If the wedding is being held in England, the big question is where. Seward argued that the wedding will not be held at Westminster Abbey – the same place where Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot – and are likely to take place in the St. George’s Chapel.
As royal guards will remember, this is the same location where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchanged vows in 2018.
The only problem with the St. George’s Chapel is that Princess Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie, used it as the location for her wedding last year. Princess Beatrice must ensure that her wedding looks very different to prevent unwanted comparisons.
Inside Princess Beatrice’s wedding plans
Although nothing has been officially confirmed, Seward believes that Princess Beatrice will go for a more traditional wedding and a simple dress. Princess Beatrice is no stranger to fashion criticism, so opting for a more elegant look is probably a good idea.
Prince George and Mozzi’s son, Christopher “Wolfie” Woolf, is likely to be pageboys for the ceremony. Mozzi shares his son with his former lover, Dara Huang.
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi have not announced an official wedding date, but they are expected to exchange a vow next year.
Several members of the royal family congratulated the couple on their engagement. This includes the parents of Beatrice, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, who expressed their excitement about the upcoming marriage on social media.
Mozzi’s parents also took action. Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Williams-Ellis said they were very happy with the engagement and look forward to their son making the knot.
They also noted that Princess Beatrice has known Mozzi for a long time and that they are the perfect couple.
Beatrice and Mozzi started dating last year and have known each other since they were children. Regarding his previous relationship, mozzi and Huang welcomed their son in 2016. Although their relationship did not work, they seem to be well together.
Princess Beatrice did not comment on the rumors about her marriage. Queen Elizabeth and the royal family are likely to keep a close eye on the details of the wedding until we get closer to the event.
