WILL BEATRICE AND EDO FOLLOW FERGIE AND ANDREW TO WESTMINSTER ABBEY?

While Beatrice and Edo have yet to share any details about their upcoming wedding, there’s a decent chance that the couple could follow in the footsteps of Eugenie’s parents and  walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey. 

Current odds from bookmaker Ladbrokes suggest that a spring 2020 Westminster Abbey wedding could have odds as low as 2/1.

St George’s Chapel, where Eugenie tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank in October 2018, has odds of 5/1. 

 

Fergie wrote: ‘@princesseugenie took the colour photographs as my girls are so close. Beatrice and Edo wanted her to capture this special moment.’

The royal added: ‘The black and white photographs were taken by Misan Harriman at Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park.’ 

Fergie also included a note from the esteemed photographer behind the lens, penning: ‘Quote from Misan Harriman: “Everything clicks when they are together and that’s exactly what my lens captured. It was an honour to observe and document such love.’

Buckingham Palace has announced this morning that Princess Beatrice has become engaged to Mr Mapelli Mozzi. 

The royal started dating the Italian property developer, 34, who is a father-of-one, in October last year.

Princess Beatrice’s sister Eugenie posted her congratulations on Instagram and shared a photograph taken by herself of the happy couple, adding: ‘Beabea – wow! I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo.

‘We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.’

Mozzi made his first official public appearance with Beatrice in March at the National Portrait Gallery gala, where they were joined by the Duchess of Cambridge.
