Like many prospective brides across the globe, Princess Beatrice had to postpone her wedding when the pandemic hit. In the end, she got married at a private ceremony that no one but her family and close friends knew about. However, the media caught wind of it soon enough. Royal reporter for the Daily Mail, Rebecca English, announced on Twitter that not only did the couple secretly get married, but they also changed their original venue. Beatrice was set to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, but in the end, settled for a ceremony at All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park.
Now, planning a royal wedding in the middle of a pandemic and also changing the location is no small feat. It turns out that Beatrice and her fiancé saw an opening to finally tie the knot when the U.K. government lifted the lockdown ban on weddings on July 4, 2020, People reports. Edoardo’s mother, Nikki Williams-Ellis, along with Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, helped the couple plan their impromptu wedding in record time. “They swung into action and brought it all together in two weeks, which is quite extraordinary,” a friend of the couple told People. “Beatrice was so excited about it all, and I think they just jumped at the chance when the ban was removed. They were both desperate for it to happen.” We love it when love wins.
