London is currently under lockdown due to the spread of COVID-19. This has led Princess Beatrice, 31, and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, to formally cancel their May royal wedding.

The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson was set to marry the financier at St. James’s Palace in the UK. Her reception was going to take place at her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth’s, gardens at Buckingham Palace.

Invitations weren’t sent out

The spokesperson also shared that the time would come for the couple to “rearrange” things but it was not now. On Thursday, the UK government announced that their lockdown would continue for an added three weeks, which means it would end on May 7, 2020.

The government has also asked people to avoid gatherings outside of close family groups. A source also told “People” magazine that “the invitations were never actually sent out.”

Couple is sad about cancelation

She also noted how the couple was “sad but pragmatic.” English also said that, according to the couple’s friends, Beatrice and her fiancé won’t be having a large wedding later in the year as she’s always wanted a small one.

Five people can attend a UK wedding

The Church of England said a minimum of only five people could attend church weddings during the outbreak. The attendees would be the priest, the bride and groom, and two witnesses.

Before this cancelation, the couple had to reschedule their wedding date twice due to the scandal Beatrice’s father faced.
