Princess Beatrice's husband shared a new picture of the couple together as they marked their first year of marriage.

Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi posted a selfie on his Instagram on Sunday 18 July, their one year anniversary, showing him and Beatrice beaming at the camera after what looked like a countryside walk.

He wrote: "I can’t believe it has been 1 year. Every second of every day since has been so full of joy, happiness, laughter and love.

"You are the kindest, loveliest and most beautiful person in the world. Thank you my darling for every second."

Beatrice and Mozzi married in Windsor in July 2020, at a point when England's coronavirus restrictions allowed small weddings.

They had intended to marry in May in London with a reception at Buckingham Palace but had to delay and then eventually change their plans.

The Queen and Prince Philip were able to attend, and it was reported Ferguson and Prince Andrew hosted a reception in the garden of their home, the Royal Lodge.

The palace announced Beatrice is pregnant earlier this year, and the royal is due to give birth in the Autumn.

Mozzi is a property developer and is a descendent of an Italian noble family. He is technically a count.
