Princess Beatrice's wedding videographer has landed another royal gig and it has close ties to her grandmother the Queen.

Andrew Gemmell, who captured Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's surprise Windsor wedding last July, has been asked to make a film about Lady Elizabeth Anson – the Queen's late cousin.

Lady Elizabeth founded her party planning business, Party Planners, in 1960 and went on to arrange events for a number of high-profile people and royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, organising a reception for foreign royals the night before their wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel.

She sadly passed away at the age of 79 in November 2020.

Speaking to AirMail, Mr Gemmell explained he will carry out Zoom-based video interviews with family members and friends, including, potentially, members of the royal family.

He said: "I want to find those anecdotes that exist within the family but get lost unless someone like me comes to chat with them about it - just a soft conversation, but gently prodding them to open up."

He added: "I speak for certain, but I would be astounded if some members of the royal family wouldn't like to be involved. She was very, very well regarded, and they will see this as a wonderful way of commemorating her."

Andrew is no stranger to royalty, having also filmed Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding day in 2018, as well as the nuptials of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston in 2019.

Following Beatrice's surprise ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in July 2020, Andrew reshared an official photo of the bride and groom on Instagram, saying: "Many many congratulations to Edoardo and HRH Princess Beatrice. What a very special day. This wonderful photo by @benjaminwheeler. Flowers by the incredible @rob070707 and Patrice."

Commenting on Edoardo's Instagram tribute to his new wife, Andrew also wrote: "Edo… what a beautiful day. Thank you for having me there to film. It's always a privilege and a pleasure."
