Princess Beatrice married her fiancée’ Edouardo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret wedding ceremony, as per The Telegraph report.
The two were married on the morning of July 17, in Windsor.
20 guests attended the ceremony, including the Queen of England herself and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Originally, the couple was supposed to wed in May with a larger number of guests and reception.
However, they had to postpone it due to the coronavirus and instead married in a more intimate setup and a smaller crowd.
The Duke of York, the princess’s father also attended the ceremony.
Government Advice on Gatherings
Due to the COVID-19, the UK government advised against large gatherings.
The couple followed “all relevant Government guidelines,” said the Palace.
In fact, the couple decided to let go of the reception at the Buckingham Palace Gardens, they added.
“A massive wedding was out of the question because of the coronavirus,” a source close to the Princess told The Sun.
The couple was also very excited to see the Queen during their wedding, the source added.
The safety measures are also to protect the well-being of other family members, especially the older ones said The Telegraph.
“They needed to make the wedding COVID-secure and safe for the Queen,” the source told The Sun.
