As reported from People Magazine, CNN, Town and Country, USA Today and EOnline… so it must be true:)
A statement from Buckingham Palace said, “The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11 a.m. on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.”
“The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines,” the statement read.
The couple had originally planned to wed at St. James’s Palace in London with a reception to follow at the Queen’s gardens at Buckingham Palace. But when they postponed in mid-April, a spokesman told PEOPLE, “There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time. There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”
I am a sucker for weddings and most specifically a royal wedding. I will set my alarm clock and typically have a brunch ready for my friends to come over and take part in the event as a virtual guest– even before that was socially acceptable.
This might not be the wedding that they anticipated, however, “they did them” (see- instead of “you do you”). Personally, I would have loved (especially at this time) attending a Royal Wedding virtually, but respect they did what they wanted to do.
I will await any photos that come on the news line, but until then, happy “wee wedding” day to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
