A makeup-free Princess Beatrice appeared in a video to announce the winner of a very special prize on Monday. The 31-year-old royal showed off her natural freckles as she read Tad by Benji Davies – the winning story of the Oscar's Book Prize for the best under-fives book of the year. She has been patron of the prize, supported by Amazon and the National Literacy Trust, since March 2017.

Beatrice's engagement ring could be seen in the video

The Princess' beautiful diamond engagement ring, designed by Mayfair atelier Shaun Leane, could be seen on her ring finger as she held the book. Beatrice and Edoardo have been forced to postpone their wedding, which was due to take place on 29 May, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The couple are yet to announce the new date for their nuptials, which were set to be held in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, London, with a reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

It was thought that Beatrice and Edoardo were self-isolating together at the Princess' London apartment in St James's Palace, but Beatrice's mother, Sarah, Duchess of York revealed otherwise.

Beatrice and Edoardo have had to postpone their May wedding

Speaking on X Factor winner and good friend Darlton Harris' podcast, City Island Podcast, Sarah said: "It's sad for me that Beatrice, she was going to get married next week, but they postponed the wedding. Edo and Beatrice have been living with her future mother-in-law who is lovely. Great friend of mine. But I'm missing my other daughter but it's just like everybody else, we are just the same family as everybody else."

Princess Beatrice's younger sister, Princess Eugenie, and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, have been living with Sarah and the Duke of York at Royal Lodge in Windsor. "During this lockdown period I've really loved spending more time with Eugenie and Jack. My daughter got married to Jack in, oh goodness, was it last October? No, it was October before, heavens! And so, of course once she's gone to get married they live away. So, I haven't seen her so much and so now it's been a total joy to spend real quality time with her," Sarah said.
