Princess Beatrice stuns in floral dress as she cosies up to husband Edoardo – after Netflix’s Scoop

Princess Beatrice looked lovely as she attended a book celebration in London with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Tuesday, 23 April.

The 35 year old royal stunned in a floral dress for her night out in the capital to celebrate the book of her friend and nutritionist, Gabriela Peacock.

Nutraceutical expert Gabriela hosted a celebration for her best-selling second book, 2 Weeks To A Younger You, as well as relaunching her Longevity Range, at Broadwick Soho Hotel.

Beatrice, who is mum to daughter Sienna, teamed her pretty colourful dress with maroon heels and wore her long auburn hair down. She was all smiles as she posed with her husband Edoardo, who looked smart in a navy blazer and trousers, with a white shirt.

Frida Redknapp, Jodie Kidd, Piers Morgan and his wife Celia Walden were other famous faces in attendance at the event.

Beatrice’s night out comes after it was reported that King Charles's plans for her to 'step up' have been 'ruined' following the Netflix drama Scoop, and upcoming Amazon series A Very Royal Scandal.

Beatrice has been stepping up in recent weeks to represent the Royal Family at events, as both King Charles and the Princess of Wales undergo cancer treatment.

However plans for this to be a more permanent move have reportedly been "ruined" due to continued focus on her father, the disgraced Prince Andrew.

Back in 2019, the Duke of York gave a rather disastrous interview on Newsnight as he was questioned about his friendship with the convicted paedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. The story behind this has since been adapted into the film Scoop, which was released on Netflix on 5 April.

This will be followed later this year by the Amazon limited series A Very Royal Scandal, which will tell the story from the point of view of interviewer Emily Maitlis.

It's thought that A Very Royal Scandal could focus further on Beatrice's role in the interview, something that could prove rather disastrous for the Princess. A source told OK!: "Bea feels like this has set her back a few steps just as everything was going right for her within the Royal Family.

"Bea was very much focused on her charitable work and was looking forward to contributing more. This is the last thing she needed. Charles and William were starting to see her as a pivotal part of plugging the gap within the family, but she feels like that’s all been ruined now."

Adding that she is particularly concerned about the series being from the the point of view of Emily, the source continued: "Bea is dreading the release of Emily’s version of events because she thinks she will feature more heavily in it.

"She believes it will stir everything up for no reason and nobody will let her live it down. To say she is upset is an understatement - she's devastated."

Despite this setback, Beatrice is determined to put on a brave face in public. "Beatrice is luckily a very resilient young woman. She is trying her very best to stay focused and weather the storm, but it’s been tough for her,” the source said.

"Eugenie and her close friends have been there for support and she’s putting on a very brave face. Both girls [Beatrice and Eugenie] wish the whole thing would just go away but fear they could be tarred with this brush for the rest of their lives. It’s difficult to see them like this."
