Newlywed royal couple Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi got spotted in the south of France after they hit the road for an impromptu honeymoon.
Princess Beatrice and her now-husband Edoardo Mozzi continued to surprise as tourists spotted them in the south of France after they wed on July 17.
The couple secretly tied the knot during a small and intimate ceremony held with just 20 guests that included Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II, who made the princess' day very special.
Breaking from tradition, Princess Beatrice wore a 1953 Norman Hartnell dress on loan from the Queen. The monarch first wore the dress to the London premiere of "Lawrence of Arabia" in 1962, and five years later again at the State Opening of Parliament.
Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin remodeled and fitted the dress for Princess Beatrice, and she also walked down the aisle wearing the Queen Mary tiara - worn by Queen Elizabeth herself when she married Prince Philip in 1947.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mozzi had to arrange their wedding around restrictions set in place due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, and the same applied to their honeymoon.
With convention out the window, the newlyweds had to let go of traditional plans. Even though they wanted to visit the Mozzi family home on Lamu island for their honeymoon next month, the couple acted on a last-minute impulse and headed to France.
According to a source, the lovebirds packed up their car "at the last minute" as they decided on a short trip across the Channel. The last place anyone expected to see Princess Beatrice and her husband, was the south of France, as a tourist noted:
"It was such a surprise to see them. Edo was behind the wheel and they looked just like any other couple enjoying the beautiful drive."

Mozzi and Princess Beatrice met at her sister, Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October 2018. The property developer fell head over heels for her right there, and next month, he can look forward to a "longer more luxurious" time with her at their family home.
After all the wedding and honeymoon celebrations, the lovebirds will continue to live in London. Princess Beatrice works for Afiniti, a Boston based tech company that has offices worldwide.
Princess Eugenie is also elated with her sister's marriage to the property developer. After the beautiful ceremony, the youngest wished her big sister all the best in married life while giddily adding that she "couldn't Bea happier."
Gorgeous pictures accompanied Princess Eugenie's message of congratulations, and her sister sure looked every bit the blushing bride.
