Princess Beatrice's Wedding May Reportedly Be Postponed Again Amid Concern over Coronavirus Pandemic
The wedding of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi could be in for another postponement due to fears over the widespread Coronavirus that has taken the world by storm.
Princess Beatrice's wedding to her Italian beau, Edoardo Mozzi, could be hit with another postponement, this time the third in succession due to the threat of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The date for the wedding between Beatrice and Edoardo had been canceled twice before because of her father, Prince Andrew.

This time around, it is due to health concerns following the rising spread of Coronavirus in the UK, and the world at large. The wedding was scheduled to take place at St. James Palace, London, on May 29.
The reception would have followed at Queen Elizabeth's gardens at Buckingham Palace, but all that is seeming unlikely at the moment after the Queen canceled all upcoming garden parties.
It is still not clear if there is or would be another postponement of the wedding, with details still being worked out from behind the scenes. The intending couple and their representatives are also yet to respond to the speculation.
Princess Beatrice is the oldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. She had been forced to shift the date of her nuptials twice after her father got involved in a public scandal that rocked the Royal Family.
Prince Andrew would, however, be present to walk his beloved daughter down the aisle, and would probably give a toast at the reception.
The scandal came about following an interview the Duke of York had with the BBC, which revealed details about his relationship with the late financier and convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in prison.
Following the scandal, Prince Andrew sought the permission of the Queen to step down from public duties, which she granted him. Beatrice also plans to have a smaller, lowkey wedding ceremony to avoid a shift of focus towards her father.
The Princess would also not have a carriage procession similar to that of her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
Prince Andrew would, however, be present to walk his beloved daughter down the aisle, and would probably give a toast at the reception, but all of that would be as normal as possible.
Italy, the country of Beatrice's fiancé, Edoardo, has been hit hard by the spreading Coronavirus, with a high number of older people among the infected and deceased.
With that in mind, the soon-to-be-royal took to Twitter to make a special appeal to people in the UK to show more kindness to the elderly and asked supermarkets to attend to older shoppers first. Edoardo's advice was prompted by a message he had seen on the social network.
