Last month it was announced that the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice, is engaged to be married to her business tycoon beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
In light of the exciting news, it has been reported that Princess Beatrice’s wedding, which is set to take place in 2020, will be rather different from her sister, Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank, which took place in 2018.
A source is said to have told PEOPLE that while Eugenie went for a dazzling and grand ceremony, Beatrice is expected to play-down her day and have a more subtle set of events.
The insider explained, “She has talked about having a smaller affair in the past.
“Beatrice and Eugenie are super close, but they are very different.
“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 personality, so I think it will be a very different wedding to Eugenie’s.”
The exciting news of Beatrice’s and Edoardo’s upcoming nuptials was confirmed when the Princess of York took to her Twitter account to make the big announcement.
Beside a sweet photograph of her and her future husband, she simply wrote, ‘I’m so excited to announce my engagement to Edo.’
Exhibiting the closer sisterly bond between the Princesses, Eugenie shared an image of the couple on her own Instagram account, beside the heartfelt message, ‘Beabea – wow! I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.’
Commenting on their daughter’s engagement, the Duke of York Prince Andrew and his wife, Sarah, Duchess of York said, “We are thrilled that Beatrice and Edoardo have got engaged, having watched their relationship develop with pride.
“We are the lucky parents of a wonderful daughter who has found her love and companion in a completely devoted friend and loyal young man. We send them every good wish for a wonderful family future.”
