The venue for the royal wedding is also still to be confirmed by the palace but there are reports that the Queen has offered to host Beatrice and Edoardo's wedding reception at Buckingham Palace. This would be the first celebration at the monarch's official London residence since Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials in April 2011.
Beatrice's younger sister Princess Eugenie and long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank were married at St George's Chapel in October 2018 – the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Property developer Edoardo proposed to Beatrice in September 2019 during a romantic weekend away in the groom-to-be's native Italy. The statement from the palace read: "The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York to Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Her Royal Highness and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi became engaged while away for the weekend in Italy earlier this month. The wedding will take place in 2020. Further details will be announced in due course."
