As the public outcry against Prince Andrew lumbers on, his eldest daughter Princess Beatrice is feeling the fallout.
The 31-year-old recently rushed to her father's home in Windsor with her fiance Edo Mapelli Mozzi by her side.
Despite appearing upbeat for the waiting photographers, insiders say the talks inside the Royal Lodge were far more serious, with her father passing on the Queen's request that the couple – who are said to be hanging by a thread – tone down their dreams of a wedding with all the trimmings.
"The Queen loves Beatrice and wants her to be shielded from her father's actions as much as possible, but it must be said that she'd prefer it if Bea and Edo postpone their wedding to avoid more public scrutiny," a royal insider tells Woman's Day.
"Bea is heartbroken and understands where she's coming from, but it makes it even harder for her and Edo. He's struggling with marrying into a family with this much baggage as it is."

Sources close to the couple have previously told media that Beatrice's wedding was set to be very different than her sister Eugenie's nuptials.
One of Beatrice's friends told PEOPLE magazine that the bride-to-be had mentioned having "a smaller affair".
In contrast, Eugenie had star-studded nuptials that took place at St George's Chapel in October last year.
"Beatrice and Eugenie are super close, but they are very different," another source told the publication.
"Beatrice is more serious and Eugenie is the outgoing extrovert, she's so bubbly and fun. Beatrice is more reserved and discreet. She holds back more, she is very polite, very well-educated but more formal and quiet in her personalty, so I think it will be a very different wedding to Eugenie's."
Rumours also surfaced that the wedding would take place in Edoardo's home country of Italy but proud mum Sarah Ferguson shut down those rumours on the British Film Institute Luminous Gala red carpet.
"It can only be Britain, and anyway don't believe what you read," she told a journalist from The Express.
