Just four months after announcing her engagement to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, bride-to-be Princess Beatrice has written heartwarming messages to her royal fans, who sent their well wishers upon hearing the happy news. As a lovely gesture, the 31-year-old sent a personal note along with a picture taken by her sister Princess Eugenie from her official engagement shoot. "Thank you so much for thinking of us after the engagement," the royal wrote.

"It is so kind of you to wish us happiness for the future," she added. "We are so excited to get married and begin life together. With our very best wishes, Beatrice and Edo." Pictures of the note were shared on royal fan account @theduchessofwonderland. Princess Beatrice is expected to tie the knot with Italian property developer Edoardo, 37, later this year. The couple announced their engagement in September after dating for 11 months - although Edoardo had spent four months planning the lavish proposal.
