Princes Beatrice has confirmed that her wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on 29 May at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace. Their reception will be held in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.

The new details surrounding the event were disclosed via the Royal Family’s official Instagram account, following speculation about the date and venue.

While the ceremony venue is much smaller than Windsor Castle and Westminster Abbey, where the Sussexes’ and Cambridges’ were married, the Chapel Royal has a rich history. Numerous Royal weddings have been held there, including that of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 10 February 1840. It was also where Prince George was christened on 23 October 2013, as well as Prince Louis on July 9 2018.

Unlike other Royal weddings, including her sister Eugenie’s in 2018, Beatrice’s nuptials will not be broadcast on television, amid controversy surrounding her father Prince Andrew, and his relationship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. He was asked to step down from his Royal duties as a result of the backlash.

The Princess celebrated her engagement in December with a big party at Chiltern Firehouse, although her father was not present for the occasion. The couple got engaged in Italy in September 2019.
