In 2020, amidst the height of the Pandemic Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi tied the knot in a private ceremony.
Beatrice who wed at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor, didn't just become a wife, but a stepmother to Edo's son, Christopher.
The princess has clearly opened her heart to the new responsibility because she decided to include her step-son in her intimate wedding in the role of page boy and best man.
Although there are no candid pictures of the couple with Christopher, royal fans believe they can see a glimpse of him in his dapper wedding attire in the background of the image below.

Nicknamed 'Wolfie', Christopher, now four, 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.
Wolfie'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!

In 2021, to honour World Book Day, Princess Beatrice revealed how reading and homeschooling her stepson was one of her biggest joys during lockdown.
Beatrice told the Evening Standard, "My stepson has been home schooling. Helping him engage with stories is a great journey to inspire imagination, creativity, independence and humor."
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.
In exciting news it has been revealed that Beatrice is expecting a child of her own with her husband in a post on the royal family's official Twitter.
