On July 17, 2020, Princess Beatrice married her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a small ceremony at All Saint's Chapel in Windsor Great Park. Their wedding was quite different from the usual royal nuptials and here’s how.


Princess Beatrice and Mozzi had intended on having their wedding on May 29, 2020. The couple had to postpone their plan due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease.

Instead, they held a small and intimate wedding with around 20 close friends and family. The princess’s grandmother, the Queen, was the guest of honor at the event.

The wedding was also different in that they had no mandatory testing for the coronavirus for their guests, but they all practiced social distancing. Everyone who attended had to be “in perfect health” because the elderly Queen was going to be there.

Beatrice’s wedding was different from other royal marriages mainly because of the pandemic we are all living through, but other things were not the same too. Her nuptials were set to be "low-key," according to a source.



They had planned to get married at St. James's Palace in London with a reception at the Queen's gardens at Buckingham Palace. Unlike other royal weddings, the couple also had no plans for a horse-drawn carriage ride which has been seen in other nuptials.

No big reception was held by Beatrice and Mozzi who opted for a "small party to celebrate" after the ceremony. Their honeymoon will only occur in August 2020.



In contrast to the couple’s small ceremony at a different location in October 2018, Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank with a more lavish event at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry also married at the same venue in May 2018 with a big guest list. Duchess Kate and Prince William had there’s at Westminster Abbey in April 2011 and there’s was also quite large.



Eugenie had blue flowers at her wedding while Beatrice had a more colorful bouquet. No hymns were sung during Beatrice’s ceremony because the government advised against all "singing, chanting, or playing music at a volume that may encourage this.”



Instead, unlike other royal weddings, the couple had some recorded music playing at their event. Normally the National Anthem is sung at royal weddings, but restrictions led to Mozzi and his bride having to play it instead.



The bride also chose to wear a wedding dress that was once worn by the Queen. Other royal brides had bespoke dresses made for them.


Family photos, besides a socially distancing one of the couple and the Queen with her husband, were also not released to the public. Neither was once of them kissing at their wedding.

Princess Beatrice and Mozzi initially got engaged in September 2019 in Italy.
