Speaking on the podcast, Omid revealed that amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the wedding might not hold until 2021. The British royal Princess Beatrice was set to marry fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, on May 29. 

The wedding was planned to be held at the Chapel Royal of St James’s Palace in London, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace. 

As a member of the Royal family, Beatrice and her fiance were expected to have a guest list of about 800 people. This became impossible after the corona.

Following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the couple announced the cancelation of their reception earlier this month and were said to be considering whether a private marriage with family and friends would be possible.

Just last week, Daily Mail reported that the Princess’s church ceremony might have only five people in attendance. This came after the Church of England gave a directive that Church weddings held during the coronavirus outbreak should be limited to having only five guests.

Although the Royal denied any wrongdoing, US attorney Geoffrey Berman disclosed that the Prince was not co-operating with their investigation procedures.

During the wedding planning last year, a source disclosed to PEOPLE that the Prince played a major part in his daughter’s wedding despite his step down from royal duties.
