Not your typical royal wedding! How Princess Beatrice is making her special day unique
Princess Beatrice is due to tie the knot with property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Friday, May 29th.
While the pair have been happily planning away for their big day since announcing their engagement in September of 2019 after dating for over year, Beatrice and Edoardo’s news have surely been a joyful distraction for the royal family amid Megxit and Prince Andrew’s sexual allegations.
The couple are determined to set themselves apart of from their royal cousins and are opting to make minor changes to their big day so it is perfect for them.
For starters Princess Beatrice and her fiancé are not broadcasting their nuptials, unlike Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank and their cousins, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
While the answer as to why they are choosing to remain private with their big day, it is understood Princess Beatrice has always been the reserved sister in comparison to her younger sibling, Princess Eugenie.
Interestingly enough, the couple are setting their sights on a more intimate and personal wedding by holding their ceremony at Chapel Royal in just 150 guests.
This differs majorly to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who said “I do” in front of 800 guests, while Prince William and Duchess Kate tied the knot with 2,000 guests looking on at Westminster Abbey.
There will also be no carriage procession for Princess Beatrice and Edoardo. While many royal newlyweds have travelled the distance between their ceremony to their reception by carriage, the couple are choosing to do so by car.
Other decisions including whether Prince Andrew will do a speech or if Prince Harry and Meghan will attend their cousin’s wedding still remain unclear.
However one thing is for sure – this royal wedding will be unlike any other royal watchers have seen in decades.
