Two years ago, her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, celebrated her nuptials to Casamigos ambassador Jack Brooksbank in a blowout fairy-tale wedding at Windsor Castle. By Sangeeta Singh-Kurtz@sangeetaskurtz
Poor Princess Beatrice. Less than a year later, Beatrice debuted her extremely rich boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. According to People, Beatrice had already changed her wedding plans twice due to her father, Prince Andrew’s, ever-evolving ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. It looked like Beatrice was all set for her own royal wedding, but then came the coronavirus pandemic, and in mid-March Buckingham Palace announced that the nuptials would be canceled. “The couple will carefully consider government advice before deciding whether a private marriage might take place amongst a small group of family and friends,” the statement said. As you may recall, in the months leading up to Beatrice’s wedding, a disastrous interview with the BBC — the one in which he described his friendship with the alleged sex trafficker as “useful,” if also “unbecoming” — led to Andrew’s effective excommunication from the royal family.. She and the “multimillionaire property tycoon” were soon engaged, and scheduled their nuptials for May 2020. All was quiet until this morning, when it was announced that Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi had finally been wed in a small ceremony on the grounds of Windsor Castle. We hope, when this is all over, she has a big, sacrilegious party in Westminster where everyone is forced to wear ridiculous, elaborate headgear:

So, congratulations to Beatrice for finally getting this doomed ceremony over and done with.
