    Princess Beatrice surprised the world last week as it emerged that she had wed fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret intimate ceremony.

    Following the disruption of their original wedding plans due to the coronavirus outbreak, the couple’s intimate wedding reportedly had just 20 guests, including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who made their first socially distanced appearance.

    ‘The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May,’ explained a statement from Buckingham Palace. ‘Working within Government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.’

    The monarch posted about the day on social media, as did Princess Beatrice’s other royal relatives, sharing stunning photographs and sending loving messages.

    Leading the pack of tributes were Prince William and Kate Middleton, with the Duke and Duchess posting a sweet post to their Instagram stories.

    ‘Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on Friday,’ the caption read, alongside a fun ‘just married’ sticker.

    It is not yet known if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in attendance.

    Huge congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi!
