On Friday, the Buckingham Palace confirmed the date and location of the royal nuptials.
“The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020,” the statement read.
“Her Majesty The Queen has kindly given permission for the ceremony to take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.
“The ceremony will be followed by a private reception, given by The Queen, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.”
The lead up to Princess Beatrice's wedding has, of course, been marked by controversy, as the past six months have been a period of scandal and secrecy for the monarchy.
Princess Beatrice's father, Prince Andrew, has been embroiled in a storm in the wake of his ‘disaster’ BBC Newsnight interview in November last year.
In his appearance on the current affairs program last month, the Duke of York denied allegations that he had sex with a then-17-year-old named Virginia Giuffre in 2001, and defended his friendship with late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The scandal has largely been labelled a 'PR disaster' for the British Royal Family and has seen Prince Andrew, the Queen's son, step down from his official royal duties.
