The Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Princess Beatrice married her fiancé, property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, in a private ceremony on Friday morning.

The pair tied the knot with close family, including the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Andrew, in attendance.

The event took place “in accordance with all relevant government guidelines” as it pertains to the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.K., the palace said in a statement.


Princess Beatrice, 31, was originally scheduled to marry the Italian property developer on May 29 at the Chapel Royal at St. James’ Palace.

However, the reception was cancelled in March due to coronavirus concerns.
Queen Elizabeth II planned to host the reception in the gardens at Buckingham Palace, but all garden parties were cancelled indefinitely due to the pandemic.
The couple were engaged in September 2019, but their original wedding plans weren’t announced until February.
