Princess Beatrice has become engaged to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Buckingham Palace has announced.

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 Instragram 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.

‘It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.’

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.

Since then, the couple have been spotted together several times.

Edoardo joined Beatrice, at Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston’s royal wedding in May, and he is obviously a hit with Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson having joined them at several public events.

Mozzi, who has a son from a previous relationship, is also a friend of Princess Eugenie – whose wedding he attended last October.

Beatrice reportedly introduced Edoardo to her friendship group two months after they started dating, at an exclusive party thrown by Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal in November.

The pair are believed to have known each other for years and Beatrice attended the funeral of Edoardo’s stepfather, Christopher Shale, who died at of a heart attack at Glastonbury in 2011 and was a close friend of David Cameron.

After their friendship developed into a romance, Beatrice was understood to have introduced Edoardo, whose father is Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, as her ‘boyfriend’ to the Duke and Duchess of York.

Mozzi is Beatrice’s first public boyfriend since she split from Uber executive Dave Clark in 2016 after 10 years together.
