A count and a royal: Inside Princess Beatrice's whirlwind romance with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

A very modern royal love story.

By Bella Brennan
From partners, to newlyweds, to proud parents; Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's relationship has been a whirlwind of joy.
The 33-year-old princess married Edoardo, known affectionately as Edo, in a low-key ceremony attended by less than 30 guests in July 2020 whilst the UK was in the midst of lockdown. The pair's original royal wedding was slated for May 29 but they had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Buckingham Palace confirmed The Queen, Prince Philip, and Beatrice's mother Sarah Ferguson and father Prince Andrew, as well as her sister Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank were all in attendance on the special day.

The princess's wedding will go down in the history books for a myriad of reasons, not limited to the repurposed vintage gown by Norman Hartnell Beatrice wore that her grandmother The Queen wore for the 1967 State Opening of Parliament, as well as the fact that it was the first secret royal wedding in 235 years.
Princess Beatrice was first linked to successful property developer Edoardo, who is reportedly a multi-millionaire, in mid-2018 after they reportedly hit it off after meeting at Princess Eugenie's wedding.
Beatrice was previously in a 10-year relationship with Dave Clarke before they parted ways in 2016. Meanwhile Edoardo, 38, has a son named Christopher 'Wolfie' Woolf, with former fiancée Dara Huang.
Now little Christopher, whom Beatrice calls her "bonus son", is a big brother and Beatrice and Edoardo's little family has grown to four after the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, on September 18, 2021.
To celebrate the couple's second wedding anniversary, we're taking a look at their modern royal romance and their stunning wedding album
