Princess Beatrice and her fiancé, who is referred to by his nearest and dearest as Edo, had originally planned to marry at The Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace on 29 May.
A friend close to the Princess told the Sun that a ‘big wedding was out of the question’ amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The friend reportedly added that Beatrice was ‘obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.’
Where did Princess Beatrice get married?
A palace statement confirmed that Beatrice tied the knot with Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.
The chapel is is a Grade II listed church in the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire, England.
The Royal Lodge was where the Queen Mother returned to live as a widow, and regularly visited the chapel until her death at the lodge in 2002.
Who was at Princess Beatrice’s wedding?
Beatrice’s grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were in attendance.
Beatrice’s parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew as well as sister Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank are believed to have been present to celebrate the happy occasion too.
Edo’s son Christopher, known as Wolfie, was originally supposed to be the groom’s best man, so it’s assumed he was also in attendance.
The groom’s parents Nikki Shale and Alex Mapelli Mozzi, who are divorced, are said to have attended and it’s thought Nikki’s new husband David Williams-Ellis might have joined her.
