In news that has delighted royal fans, Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are set to tie the knot in 2020- that's right, another royal wedding!
The couple have only been dating for 11 months but once they get married, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson won't just become a wife, but a stepmother to Edo's son, Christopher.
Nicknamed 'Wolfie', Christopher was born to parents Edoardo and his former fiancé, architect Dara Huang in 2016.
Despite breaking off their engagement in 2018, Edo and Dara continue to co-parent their son, with Dara splitting her time between London and Hong Kong due to work.
When she is working in Asia, 'Wolfie' stays with his dad which means Beatrice "has really gotten to know him."
"Edo is easily one of the best dads," a source revealed to PEOPLE magazine.
"He is so involved, he is so committed to this little boy, and Beatrice is already showing that she's a fantastic step-mummy already. They've been on family vacations together already. They are really happy, there's no better person they could have for a step-mummy."

We haven't seen too many photos of little Wolfie but his proud mother did share one sweet picture on her Instagram account.
In December 2018, Dara shared a selection of family photos and buried away was a gorgeous close-up of her son's face.
"Some photos of a few of the many things I'm thankful for 🙏🏻❤️. Thank you for the love and support I got from everyone, for my family and friends, for my business partners and colleagues, for my mentors and role models, for my strength and blessings - Thank you 2018 and here's to a successful new year!!!🙏🏻❤️ #love #laugh #share #forgive," she captioned the snaps.

And to make matters even cuter, Wolfie has his own Instagram account.
The two year-old's profile is understandably set to private, but social media fans are able to catch a glimpse of him in the profile picture, casually sipping on a cold drink.
And he may not be old enough for school, but he already has 98 followers!

With her 2020 wedding fast approaching, it's been revealed that Princess Beatrice is on friendly terms with Dara and even wants Wolfie to play a big part on the day.
"Dara loves her son to bits and, like any mother, she is very protective. But in a very modern and grown-up way, she is totally happy that Beatrice will be developing a relationship with her son and is happy that he will attend the wedding as Edo's best man," a close friend told The Mail on Sunday.

And it's clear that Wolfie is very important to Beatrice too with a friend of the princess's confessing to PEOPLE: "He is very much part of their life."
"Beatrice has embraced the child as part of her life from the outset," they added.
The friend also remarked that Princess Beatrice would like children of her own so we can't wait to see this beautiful blended royal family in the future.
