Princess Beatrice hasn’t even set the wedding date, everyone is ‘concerned’

Royal Wedding Alert! Princess Beatrice is engaged to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi **FILE PHOTOS**

Princess Beatrice’s wedding planning is a wreck! Which is no surprise, considering Beatrice had been waiting to announce the wedding date for months, waiting hopelessly for the stories about Prince Andrew to die down. We’ve heard that the Queen told Beatrice that she can’t announce the date until after the British election (which is tomorrow). Will Beatrice announce this the date next week? Well, according to Entertainment Tonight’s source, Beatrice doesn’t even have a wedding date and everybody’s worried about Bea.

While this is supposed to be the happiest time of her life, Princess Beatrice’s wedding planning, unfortunately, seems to be overshadowed by the scandal surrounding her father, Prince Andrew, and his affiliation with convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein. Beatrice got engaged to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this year, but a source close to the 31-year-old princess tells ET that she has yet to set a wedding date, despite reports that she’ll wed in 2020.

In regard to her 59-year-old father, the source says “the family is very disappointed in the situation” involving Prince Andrew, adding that he has “embarrassed the family.”

“Everyone right now is concerned about Bea,” the source says. “Poor Bea. She deserves to have the wedding she wants and the public is going to go nuts [because of her father].”

Over the weekend, numerous media outlets reported that Beatrice canceled her scheduled engagement party at Chiltern Firehouse in London on Dec. 18, due to fears the paparazzi will swarm her father. A rep for Buckingham Palace would not confirm these reports, telling ET, “This would be a private matter and we would not comment on it.”

[From Entertainment Tonight]

A lot of people – myself included – have suggested that Beatrice just take this entire thing out of the royal family’s hands, that she and Edoardo should just go to Italy and get married. Edo’s parents own some big, beautiful Italian property and they even rent it out for weddings anyway. So… do that. But she probably won’t. Because all Beatrice has is her royal title and royal connection, and – I’m being harsh, I know – I think Edo is sticking around because of those royal connections too. Why run off to Italy to get married if the whole point is that Edo and Beatrice want a “royal wedding” at Windsor Castle? So… that’s why everything sucks for Beatrice now. And honestly, I’m shocked that Edo hasn’t cut and run.

    Damn Bea has bad luck in the romance/love department. I know it’s not the end all be all, but she’s the last older grandchild of the Queen to get married, her last boyfriend she dated for 10 years broke up with her and got married and became a father within like 2 years of them splitting up, and her dad… well…

    She should just elope and have a very nice honeymoon but you’re right, royalty is all she knows.

    • Lucy De Blois says:

      Royalty isn’t just all Bea knows, it’s also what he wants, like Kaiser said in the last paragraphs. I don’t think the article is harsh on Bea or him: it’s the truth. If the wedding was what mattered the most, they would have the ceremony anywhere. It could be a big, lavish happy ceremony. Not like in many sad cases, one of the families have a turn down on life and the wedding has to be poor, simple, small… They can have anything and everything someone can wish for.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    Yeah that wedding ain’t happening – he’s going to bail.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Agreed. I still think Edo will cut and run befor this is over. The “connections” he’s hoping for are getting more and more tarnished. HOWEVER…. he may bite the bullet and stay until TQ/PP die, then Bea will be getting a nice, big inheritance to live off. He strikes me as the type. While his family may be “well to do”, doesn’t mean *he* has access to all the cash.

      I just don’t care for Bea (like she cares lol). I think she is a LOT like her parents. She is rather aimless in her life, and seems (to me) to be rather entitled. She just rubs me the wrong way… irrational, perhaps… And while I certainly don’t wish her ill, she doesn’t “deserve” anything, other than what she earns/accomplishes for herself.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Yeah Bea has always stuck me as being her parents daughter – she has that same ‘tude as her parents. Eug seems very different.

      • Megan says:

        I agree, he will cut and run. The company he started is developing more than $100,000,000 in property. He doesn’t need her money and if her connections dry up …

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        You would be surprised how many people are “well to do” having very little “well” or “to do”. You don’t need to look to much far from the RF.

    • Le4Frimaire says:

      Won’t be surprised if he sticks around through holidays but things quietly put on hold after New Years. Sometimes gotta take those lumps and she doesn’t have the best judgment.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Sometimes I feel he’s going to say “nice to meet you” to Bea, because I’m pretty sure he will not have the same attention from the right people to improve his business, given the scandal surrounding his in-laws. Sometimes I think he’s going to be careful to not do anything harsh; breaking up their relation can be very dangerous for Edo. He’s going to attract lots of bad press on him; and that’s not good for business too. Ohhh boy, he must be really twisting around. Sorry, but I never thought he was really in love with her; maybe my mistake.

    • duchesschicana says:

      I would bet against you all that he will the tabloids know nothing are we going to pay attention to places like DM. He was seen with her a few days ago he is still very much in her life

  3. Darla says:

    He may still cut and run. And I don’t know why she “deserves” to have the wedding she wants. Wake up Princess! Time to become a real person and live in reality. It could be fun! Why, it even sounds like the plot for a British rom-com!

    • LindaS says:

      Time for ALL the royals to wake up, smell the coffee and go away and live in the real world. As a Canadian we support ALL the royals with our tax money which is sickening in itself.

      • ShazBot says:

        LindaS, no we don’t. Our taxes go towards security and things associated with their tours when they are in Canada, but we don’t send money over to the UK for their upkeep.

      • Shirleygailgal says:

        @ShazBot….oh yes we Canadians DO…it’s part of being part of the Commonwealth. ALL the Commonwealth countries send money to support them, Andi its a huge reason why Australia particularly wants out and to become a republic. It works out to being about $1.35 per annum for every man woman and child if they do NOT come to Canada. If they do…that cost soars…….

      • anon says:

        What is it with the Canadians these days? I saw the other day that one of them also said they fought in both World Wars “because the United States asked us to.”

        Um, no, they were fighting on behalf of their colonial overlords, the Brits. As in the case of the Royal family, no, you’re not “paying taxes” for their upkeep. No, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II does not raise taxes in Australia, nor in any other Commonwealth Realm where she is recognised as Head of State. Member states of the Commonwealth do pay subscription dues, but these pertain to the running costs of the Commonwealth itself and are not passed onto either the Crown or the UK Government. Finally, most of the members of the Commonwealth are *already* republics. So.

        I’m starting to think the Canadians are not plugged into their own place in the world.

        Please do go read a book.

      • LindaS says:

        To all you riled up people. I never said we send money to them. I said our tax dollars support them. And they do in various ways. Sorry I cant read books anymore. I am starting to lose my eyesight. But I will have one of my grandchildren read a book to me if that will make you feel better. I stand by my comment. They all need to go away

      • notasugarhere says:

        LindaS, if that wasn’t a sarcastic comment, have you tried the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA)? Over 500,000 titles in audio, accessible e-reader, or braille.

      • anon says:

        Demonstrably, LindaS, you are incorrect. Canada’s “tax dollars” do not support the BRF.

        And, apparently, you can read well enough to be on CB, so I stand by my comment, as well.

      • Selena says:

        @Shirleygailgal Australians are not up in arms about becoming a republic. Most people have the attitude that we have more pressing issues (like a happy clapper, right wing idjit as our Prime Minister) and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

      • Jaded says:

        @anon: Hey, that’s a pretty stupid comment – “one Canadian said….” As a matter of fact, Canada went to war of its own free will. My father was a WWII vet, flew bombing missions in North Africa, survived being shot down and BARELY escaped getting picked up by Rommel’s ground troops. In WWI Canada was still a part of the British Empire. As a result, when Great Britain declared war on Germany in August 1914, Canada was automatically at war. In both wars Canada went willingly to war to fight the menace to Western civilization.

        Get plugged into Canadian history – we Canadians are certainly proud of our military history.

      • Jaded says:

        @LindaS: Our tax dollars do NOT support the BRF. The BRF only draws from Canadian funds for support in the performance of their duties when in Canada. Canadians do not pay any money to the Queen or any other member of the Royal Family, either towards personal income or to support royal residences outside of Canada.

      • Redgrl says:

        @anon – what Canadian said that? We were in both world wars years before the US. It’s the US that joined in late. And don’t patronize us as a country – it’s not polite.
        @jaded – exactly.

      • Nic919 says:

        It’s a point of pride for most Canadians that we showed up at the beginning of each WW and not midway through like the Americans did. Besides Dieppe is a huge loss that happened before Pearl Harbour and many Canadians died as a result. (Lord Mountbatten used the non British soldiers as dispensable and so he has never been viewed highly by Canadians as a result). Canadians also have Remembrance Day every year and so I highly doubt any actual canadian ever said that we showed up because of the Americans. In fact WWI helped forged Canadian identity as a nation separate from Britain and by WWII Canada had a significant contribution especially considering the total population at the time.

      • Ravine says:

        Shazbot and Jaded are correct. We do not send tribute to our feudal masters in England, lol. We pay for the Governor General (and, provincially, for the Lieutenant Governors), and we pay to host visiting members of the royal family. That’s it. We really get off easy, compared to poor British people having to support the entire family through multiple grants, sacrifice revenues from entire duchies to fund their lavish lifestyles, provide year-long 24/7 security, foot the bill for the renovation, upkeep and staff of massive palaces, etc. We get all the constitutional perks of monarchy at a fraction of the cost. Not that we *should* be a monarchy anymore, but that’s another can of worms.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      IMHO, Beatrice deserves whatever her sister got wedding wise or an equivalent. Beatrice is in no way responsible for her mother and father’s shady and/or criminal behavior.

      If I were Beatrice I would have a big problem with all of this if I really wanted a semi-royal and semi-public wedding.

      Me personally, I would take a big wad of cash from mums and dads and marry in Italy or Las Vegas.

      • Amanda says:

        I cannot imagine a scenario in which my dad had a massive public scandal about sex trafficking and I then had my major concern be my own wedding. This is another example of the court / the media trying to divert attention from the women who are actually suffering to an unbelievably privileged woman who is “embarrassed.” Wow I’m so sorry Beatrice your family is “embarrassed.” You’re embarrassed by Andrew? You should be freaking outraged!

      • notasugarhere says:

        IMO no one ‘deserves’ any particular type of wedding. She is choosing to get married, but the world doesn’t owe her a wedding as large as her sister’s.

      • Rusted says:

        It’s not unusual for a bride to low-key her wedding plans to fit unforeseen circumstances involving a close family member, such as a sudden death — or a public scandal. It may not be fair to the bride, but its appropriate. Such circumstances usually dampen the celebratory mood anyway.

      • dlc says:

        People deserve many things. Access to food, shelter, medications. They don’t always get them. I won’t shed a tear over the wedding Beatrice “deserves” because she worked hard, oops, I mean was born into the royal family.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Rusted is absolutely right: it’s wrong to put all the meaning of a wedding on the circunstances; the most important is to be with the person you love. Of course, every girl dreams about the ceremony, but bad things may happen and, sometimes you must down size your dreams. But nothing is so much important: you are commiting yourself to the person you want to be all your life. That’s what matters.

  4. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Admittedly, this is awful to say, but I’ve been thinking it since their roll out…

    He is way out of her league as far as facial attractiveness goes. There must be ulterior motives on his part. Perhaps he’s not as wealthy as he claims.

    • Grey says:

      Yeah, it is awful to say.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      A LOT of aristos have the estates, but lack real income (cash). They need to rent out their properties for events and tours for the upkeep/income. Feels like his parents are in this category.

      Frankly, I wouldn’t want someone who dumped his gf/fiancée and baby to hook up with me (due to my “connections”). Also, these two have all the warmth/passion between them of two fish on ice. Even the engagement pic: she’s preening to the CAMERA, NOT him.

      I think it reallllly bothered her to be the last singleton; she’s just SO relieved to be getting married finally. She’s not looking at all the red flags he’s throwing.

      • Mo says:

        I would need to know how often it is rented. There are huge tax implications if a home/property is a “business” or just a residence. You can assign all sorts of expenses to a business and if you run it at a “loss,” you can subtract that from the “profits” of your main business.

        Like Taylor Swift growing up on a “Christmas tree farm” AKA notorious tax dodge. Live in a huge house in the country with lots of property, pay farm, not the substantially higher residential taxes.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        When I’ve read on the DM he had dumped fianceé and their baby to get Bea, he certainly caught my eye. And his eyes and face on the pictures when they were dating, just raised my red flags even more. The problem on the pictures is not her, it’s his eyes… so hungry..

    • LawMa says:

      He seems like he’s broke. Also he’s quite short and has a messy personal life (recent, ex-fiance and baby) so certainly seems to be in her league to me.

    • minx says:

      As I’ve said before, I see no chemistry between these two. They always look like they just met.

      • huckle says:

        All the royals look like they all just met so how can you really tell if there’s chemistry or not?

      • notasugarhere says:

        Victoria and Daniel, Letizia and Felipe, Maxima and Willem-Alexander, Harry and Meghan. You can see the chemistry and connection.

      • Becks1 says:

        I agree with some you can see a chemistry/connection, but I’m still laughing at “all the royals look like they just met” because that is true for a lot of them, lol. Particularly the ones who are blood related.

      • minx says:

        huckle, Harry and Meghan the and other royals that notasugarhere named have palpable chemistry, you can just see it. Not these two.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I would add Haakon Magnus and Mette-Marit, Crown Prince & Princess of Norway, to notasugarhere’s list.

      • iconoclast59 says:

      I think the same thing, and feel bad for it. I think as humans we can’t help but notice things like that.

  5. Snap Happy says:

    They are only now embarrassed by the situation? Not when Epstein was at her 18th Bday party? Or when he was convicted years ago and Andrew was seen walking in the park with him? They are only embarrassed because it’s a bigger story now. Why are they concerned about this wedding and not the fact that he sexually abused one and maybe more young girls?

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I really do not think that Beatrice personally invited or personally requested the attendance of Epstein at her 19th birthday party. Epstein’s attendance was all Andy & Sarah’s doing.

      • Snap Happy says:

        He was still a gross slime ball. I wouldn’t want him around my friends.

      • Some chick says:

        Yeah he was a gross slime ball, and her dad’s bestie. How was she supposed to keep him out? At 18 years of age?

        Stop blaming women for men’s disgusting behavior.

      • Snap Happy says:

        Where did I blame Beatrice for anything? Saying they should be embarrassed a long time ago doesn’t mean I assigned blame to them. I’m saying their reaction to this whole situation is extremely delayed and revolves around what the family is loosing not what the victims lost at the hands of the abusers.

      • Snap Happy says:

        And, I originally said, “They” not Beatrice. They is all of them – Fergie, the courtiers, the queen.”

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        It only proves the lack of the minimum sense of decency and decorum. If I was walking on the wild side, I would never permit any of my gang hanging around with my family.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      How about when Sarah brought the girls to holiday on Epstein’s island, and when she accepted money from a convicted sex offender, do they feel anything about that at all I wonder?

      Epstein was at that 18th birthday party one month after a warrant was issued for him, is there no security surrounding the royals, surely protection officers background check everyone, including party guests invited into the palace.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        “is there no security surrounding the royals, surely protection officers background check everyone”.

        EXACTLY! Which is why I do not blame Beatrice for anything that went on regarding the guest list for her 18th birthday party.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Yeah, I’ll bet Daddy, and maybe Mummy, took over the guest list for sure.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Obviously

  6. Sofia says:

    Does Bea actually want a big splashy royal wedding?

    Or is that what her pedo dad and freeloader mum want but they’re just covering it up by saying it’s what Bea wants so they don’t look like jerks?

    • Lara K says:

      oh I think she does, especially since her sister had one.

      Actually eugenie would have been much more likely to have a private wedding, but hers was before the whole mess came out. Bea has always been the thirstier, dodgier sister. This must be absolutely killing her inside.

    • minx says:

      Hard to say. It could be her horrible parents who undoubtedly wanted Charles/Diana-scale weddings for both daughters. I feel sorry for Bea that her father is a pedo, but I don’t feel sorry that any wedding plans might get scaled back. She can have a lovely appropriate wedding. It may not look like Eug’s but that’s just life.

  7. JanetFerber says:

    For the life of me, I can’t tell the difference between her and her sister in many photos. Weird.

  8. I’m going to get laughed out of Dodge for this, but what if they actually love each other? It would suck trying to plan the start of your life together around the legal/moral issues surrounding your indefensibly gross parents.

    Of course it would suck less in an Italian villa.

  9. Rapunzel says:

    I hear the Pizza Express in Woking is open for bookings if Windsor or Italy don’t work out.

  10. Eliza_ says:

    If they go to Italy her grandparents won’t attend. Andrew will be there no matter what. Should she never get married because of her father?

    I still say a UK wedding. Windsor. No carriage ride. No tv special. Just have press for arrivals/ departures and the standard released photos: 1 of couple, one of bridal party (children), 1 with parents, siblings, baby/ex, grandparents to drown out Andrews presence in the photo. It’s her only British royal tiara event in her lifetime, would be a shame to give it all up because her dad is the worst.

    • Becks1 says:

      I feel like she is wearing a tiara at her wedding no matter what, lol.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      I said it in another thread: IMO, if it’s important to her for her grands to be there, small family/close friends wedding at one of the chapels in Windsor or Sandringham (closer for PP), and do a blowout party in London/Italy for the wider circle of friends. I doubt TQ/PP would even go to a big, loud, raucous party anyway.

      • JayneBirkinB says:

        This is the right answer. And they should do it over the Christmas break. Everyone will be at Sandringham anyway. Just have a “family-only” at the church on the estate, and throw a 1 year anniversary party later at a tropical island in the Bahamas. Prince Phillip might not live too much longer, so do it sooner than later.

        Modesty is what is needed right now from the BRF, not Hubris.

        I do feel badly for her because online criticism is usually about her looks because she is not beautiful in the modern sense of the term. And people just will.not.let.that.wedding.hat.go from W/K’s wedding. The blue dress pictured above, however, is perfect. She should wear that every day.

    • Darla says:

      Well, they could elope to Vegas. Just the two of them.

      • Ravensdaughter says:

        Viva! They could get married by an Elvis impersonator, and what happens in Vega$ stays in Vegas!

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        THE FLYING ELVI!!! Sigh… good times…good times.

        Whatever happened to Sixer? Did anyone every find out?

      • notasugarhere says:

        I hope she left us for greener pastures (Republic of Ireland). Three of the four Sixer family members had citizenship and Sixer’s job was remote. If they did make that huge move post-Brexit vote, she might have figured CB was an expendable hobby in the face of all that chaos.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Thanks, Nota. I’ve missed her posts. I hope that she and the family are doing well wherever they are/whatever they’re doing.

  11. Becks1 says:

    I do feel bad for Bea, because this should be a happy time and it sucks for her that her father’s behavior is putting such a, ahem, damper on things, to say the least.

    But honestly, sometimes that’s life. Its not fair but sometimes you have to adjust your expectations due to things beyond your control.

    My prediction is a very tightly controlled Windsor wedding, minimal press, no TV coverage, and a very private reception.

    • Nic919 says:

      I feel bad for her not having the big royal wedding she wanted, but I feel worse for the women who were sex trafficked by Epstein who was enabled by rich privileged creeps like Andrew. Sometimes life is not fair.

      • Annie says:

        Absolutely Nic.

        I get it’s a bad situation for her, that her life has never prepared her for this and she’s totally shocked. She didn’t ask for her parents and I wish her well.

        But my sympathies lie with her father and Epstein’s victims. They don’t have the biggest PR powerhouses in the world defending them. They worry about being killed. Beatrice has a lot of room to get creative in how he deals with her situation; the victims are just trying to stay alive.

      • Becks1 says:

        Oh I’m with you. Its why my sympathy only extends so far.

        Imagine being one of Epsteins/Andrew’s victims, and seeing Bea have a big splashy wedding, after that interview. (I imagine its painful at any time, and Eugenie’s wedding probably was too, but the interview definitely increased the scrutiny on Andrew.)

  12. Rapunzel says:

    On a serious note: can we once again remember what a sh– dad Andy is? How awful is he to ruin his daughters’ lives like this, Beatrice in particular. He not only made her his alibi, dragging her into his gross mess, but has screwed up her wedding too. What an ass.

  13. Cee says:

    Marry in Scotland, like Zara did. She gets the castle, the tiara even if not the crowds…

    • STEPHANIE says:

      Zara had huge crowds and bbc coverage of people entering the church. And kicked out another couple to do it. Costing the taxpayers 400k pounds. Witch

  14. RoyalBlue says:

    If they truly love each other where or how they marry should not matter. Stop pressuring them, they already live together.

    If I were her it would be a small and private event. 100 persons or fewer, not the 800+ person extravaganza that was Eugenie’s event.

    • something-something says:

      Yeah there’s so much focus on the wedding itself these days. How is your Special Day gonna outshine everyone else’s. That’s not the important part people. What matters is what comes after. The wedding is only one day. Marriage lasts much longer.

    • duchesschicana says:

      They already live together the marriage is another stepping stone and he purposed to her through out all this scandal and allegations and still stayed with her doesnt that say something about him? Sure you can say he is hanging on for whatever connections they got, by now any benifits he would have gotten seem gone due to her father. I think he has feelings for her if he is staying, especially since he has Wolfe to think about. As their future vows say for better or worse , their relationship was just got tested a lot sooner, and if this dont break them there is obviously some type of fondness between them.

  15. My3cents says:

    Elope and spare us all.

  16. TheOriginalMia says:

    I feel bad for her. She’s not responsible for Andy, Epstein or Sarah. She is probably overwhelmed by everything (Phillip’s health, QE’s expectations , Sarah & Andy, being the last grandchild to marry, his family, his child). It’s a lot and she has to deal with all of that in the public eye. I think she and Edo should have a small private wedding away from the spotlight and more public reception/civil wedding which would satisfy Sarah/Andy’s needs.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      “last grandchild to marry”

      What about Louise and James Wessex-Windsor?

      • Delly says:

        QE and PP will never live to see Louise or James marry. Beatrice is the last grandchild they will see get married.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Delly, I agree with you but posters are always forgetting about Louise & James.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Louise and James are too much young to marry; like Delly says, it will take years and years. Besides, the Queen is from days the only option for a woman was marriage. Not anymore. There are many young women (Bea’s age) perfectly happy and unmarried.

    • Truthiness says:

      I will never be sorry for someone who takes 15+ vacations a year, to the point where she is barely working. Does no one remember the tally of her vacations a few years back? I was gobsmacked.

  17. Sarah says:

    I still can’t believe Pedo Prince made her his alibi. Like, what kind of parenting is that?

  18. Tourmaline says:

    I LOL at the thing about Beatrice not being allowed to announce her wedding date for fear of overshadowing the election? Haha

    Andrew and Fergie are such a bizarre tacky duo, of course their decades of shady antics were going to spill over on their daughters eventually. The whole ‘wedding she deserves’ crap is part and parcel of delusions of grandeur and status grasping that led to the association with Epstein to begin with. Beatrice is 31 years old and if she can’t deal with reality that’s on her.

    On a related note Emily Andrews in the Sun had a story that Ghislaine Maxwell is in talks with US networks for a TV interview defending Andrew and proclaiming Virginia Giuffre as a liar. Now that would be crazy.

    • aquarius64 says:

      Another train wreck in the making. Apparently GiGi doesn’t know anything she says in the interview is admissible in court if she catches a charge.

    • Jaded says:

      It will be as much of a train wreck as Andrew’s interview. Why on earth would anyone believe her defense of Prince Pervy or herself when there is solid proof that she was Epstein’s enabler? Why would anyone believe she’s innocent when she’s been on the run for the past 6 months? More and more women who were victims of their predation are going to come out so it’ll be dozens of women against Maxwell. Honestly, the hubris of this woman is unbelievable.

    • duchesschicana says:

      Who knows if his family believe the allegations about him,(especially his daughters and mom.) As everyone in that family has had things written about them and fed to the wolves at one point in their lives. They may vIew it as just more media lies, no one one wants to admit they are related to a creep.

      Note; I dont support Andrew, never liked him, just saying how they might view him as they know him on a personale level. I dont envy thier his family’s position, they grew up caring for him as a member of their family. Now he has these allegations must be confusing, especially for his daughters, who know him as Dad.

      When you care for someone it doesnt automatically go away when YOU find out dark things about them, there is love, denial confusion, hurt, anger, and maybe acceptance.They’d be in denial even if evidence is staring right back at them, especially his mom.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Well… One thing is to wish your son, father, uncle is saying the truth, the other is closing the eyes to the close connexion he was having with a man investigated by the FBI. You believe in your heart, but you prepare yourself for the blow.

    • duchesschicana says:

      Aslo do we even know for fact she wants a big wedding? Or we just taking what the tabloids write as fact . She’ll probably have a wedding then a big after party somewhere else Eugenie’s wedding was a two days one was a more public wedding and the next day was more priavte I’m expecting something more private not only because of the things her father ‘allegedly’ did ,but also because Edo has a three year old son, that he probably wants involved in the wedding with out the press being in their face. All the pictures Edo had of him had been cleaned off social media, except one or two . They might want things more private because of a few factors.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    I think the friends are worried for 2 reasons: Edo is going to cut bait and run (he’s not going to Sandringham for Christmas as of now) or the FBI will want to question Bea because Andy made her his alibi in that train wreck interview.

  20. Jumpingthesnark says:

    I think The Mozz is going to bail after the holidays. Not before. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wanted to take in a BRF Xmas at Sandringham though. He seems like the type that milks and overblown the connections he has, and that kind of Xmas would be fodder for that. If he is at Sandringham I just hope he doesn’t do the church pap walk with Pedro Andy though.
    And good god, of all the things to be “concerned” about!!!! How about concern what your father did and concern for the well-being if the survivors????

    • Tourmaline says:

      The Mozz lol… it’s like if the Fonz had a Eurotrash prettyboy cousin

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I am giving Edo the benefit of the doubt until he does something that makes me change my mind.

      I think there is much more to the story of his break-up with the mother of his child than we know about.

    • February Pisces says:

      Even if he wants to bail (and I agree that he might), the RF courtiers will do everything to make him stay now that the engagement has been announced. If he bails it will show just how bad things behind the scenes are with Andrew and his family. I think he’s definitely there for the connections and perks of being with a royal. The only selling point bea has is that she’s Andrews daughter and the queens granddaughter, so it makes sense that her ‘stock’ would plummet too as a result of Andrews actions. Bea seems really into him, but the way he ditched his baby mama is a major red flag.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Like I said, it’s going to be difficult for him to run now; not because of the courtiers, but because the press is going to go down on him like ants on a pot of honey. January is a very slow month for news, H&M are out of scene and the news about Andy’s problem are under censorship… Edo is going to make their day. And every connexion he had done is going to vanish in smoke.

    • duchesschicana says:

      H e was seen with her a few days ago ata patronage visit he i is not going anywhere antime soon besides they already live together

    • duchesschicana says:

      2. I think he will marry her, could be very wrong. Why do you assume he is a scammer ? He is a self made millionair and is a long time family friend, that has physical custody of his son. Other than that we have never really heard him speak though or know anything really about his private life.The only interviews he has ever givin is about buissness, none about his relationship with Beatrice. No real evidence that proves he is hitting for the bag, he is the bag in Bea’s case, so to speak. He has been seen with her throught this mess her father caused. especially the last few weeks.

  21. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    I kind of feel for her, since her sister had a splashy wedding. But, the basis for a healthy, long marriage is not the ceremony (not that I’m a relationship expert – kinda the opposite) and if they want to make that pledge, here’s the opportunity to change it all around and make it their own. They could really make it private and look back onit fondly. Not that any of them care about my 2 cents. :)

    • duchesschicana says:

      I’m expecting something more private not only because of the things her father ‘allegedly’ did ,but also because Edo has a three year old son and will around 4 by the time of the wedding., that he probably wants involved in the wedding with out the press being in their face. All the pictures Edo had of him had been cleaned off social media, except one or two . They might want things more private because of a few factors.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Do you really believe his son is going to be part of this wedding? I don’t think Andy and Fergie will agree. I know, I know, it’s not their wedding. But it’s very rare parent’s don’t give opinions on their daughters weddng plans. Hummm… First I will see, after, I apologize for having nasty thoughts his ex family won’t be invited, included the little boy.

  22. Anne says:

    I don’t like him at all, and I don’t see any great love/romance between them. He is there for status and royal connections. It’s pretty clear actually. And he seems like a type of guy who would cheat on her 2 years into the marriage. I still have a feeling that she’s marrying him because she was under a lot of pressure, you know her younger sister married before her or whatever which is unbelievably stupid if you ask me, but yeah… He was there and she jumped into it.
    She can do better than him.

    • Lady D says:

      My niece and her sister didn’t talk for five years because the younger one had a baby first. Distressing foolishness.

    • Lowrider says:

      He can do better than her.

    • duchesschicana says:

      1. He was never married he was in a relationship with his ex. They seem heavily involved in their buissnesses and his ex is gone most of time, how can one possibly nuture a relationship like that ? What ever hppened between them it seems to better. They still collaberate together in work and co parent . They even leave comments on SM

      I dont fully believe in the cheating rumors could be wrong, but it sells more when a article says a ‘Princess Stole my man vs ‘A princess is dating my ex.’ It’s all tabloid talk and we will never know the truth.

      Maybe he strung them along but in the end he did choose Bea. He could have been shady in the begining (up for debate) and just because a relationship is mutually benificial doesnt mean they never fell in love, I mean stranger things have happened…

      He is a self made millionair and is a long time family friend, that has physical custody of his son. Other than that we have never really heard him speak though or know anything really about his private life.The only interviews he has ever givin is about buissness, none about his relationship with Beatrice.

      No real evidence that proves he is hitting for the bag, he is the bag in Bea’s case, so to speak. He has been seen with her throught this mess her father caused. especially the last few weeks He with her in a patronage visit and and a charity event, he still is present in her life despite the media reporting otherwise.

      • duchesschicana says:

        2. They already live together the marriage is another stepping stone and he purposed to her through out all this scandal and allegations and still stayed with her doesnt that say something about him? Sure you can say he is hanging on for whatever connections they got, by now any benifits he would have gotten seem gone due to her father. I think he has feelings for her if he is staying, especially since he has Wolfe to think about. As their future vows say for better or worse , their relationship was just got tested a lot sooner, and if this dont break them there is obviously some type of fondness between them.

        They seem in love and affection to me when they dont not they are being filmed/photographed. They certainly looked snuggly at 0:14 in the video.

      • Anne says:

        I didn’t say that he cheated on his ex-girlfriend, we don’t know about that, and I sincerely hope that he didn’t. I said that he seems like a guy who would cheat on Bea 2 years into their marriage. I wish them all the best really, but something seems off to me here. I hope I am wrong. I guess we will see.

  23. Capepopsie says:

    PLEASE, can we just STOP putting the blame för everything that has happened In the past on Bea, no matter what her personality is, and just put it where it belongs, in the hands of her parents! 😐

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Capepopsie, THANK YOU. I have been saying the same thing for ages. Beatrice is NOT responsible for anything her parents have done.

      • Becks1 says:

        No one is saying Beatrice is responsible for her father’s actions. What people are saying is that sometimes you don’t get what you want or what you think you are “entitled” to. Her father’s actions are going to impact her wedding. Beatrice should be even angrier with him because of that, let alone because of what he actually did.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Becks1, I agree with you but I do not think Beatrice is all that worried about her wedding. I think this is just more “made up shit” by tabloid Royal Reporters who have nothing else to write about to generate clicks for revenues because the Sussexes are on holiday vacation.

      • Lucy De Blois says:

        Of course she can’t be blamed for the bad intentions and stupidity of that pair. Unfortunately, the kids are going to be splashed by the scandal. Like always. It happened before and will happen again.

    • Rhys says:

      I know, right? How does it make you all feel when people talk $shit about you because of your relatives? Women especially are so quick to put the blame on other women for the stuff that men do, just because they are related!

      Bea has the right to want to have whatever wedding she wants. Everyone does. It is very unfortunate, that her father is such trash, and her dream wedding isn’t going to happen. It is dis@usting to say she deserves all of this, that she should stop wanting a nice wedding and just curl up in a ball. Her prick of a father should go on trial for sex-trafficking. She has nothing to do with it.

  24. S808 says:

    I’ll be surprised if they make it down the aisle or stay together tbh. I see him bailing and would not blame him. I feel bad for Bea’s bad luck in dating and in parents. Obviously I don’t know the ends and outs of their relationship but this marriage just feels like a last resort. She is not going to get the grand wedding her sister got and her POS dad is bound to overshadow any discussion pertaining to her at the moment so if I were her I’d scrap the whole thing. The timing right now is sh-t. I’d take it as a sign.

  25. Ninjacat says:

    I feel for Bea. I think she can still do a modest “royal” wedding like Eug. The royals have so many properties! All they need to do is trot around before and after service. No need to show full ceremony. She deserves it since her PA is a f*. I hope she doesn’t just have super bad luck tho… Like someone super old in the fam dies on her wedding day or around that time… Can you imagine? Like Roger Sterling’s daughter on Mad Men married day aft JFK assassination. Oy vey!

    • Le4Frimaire says:

      If she wants to marry the dude, then just do it. People have family problems but it’s her life and she should do what she wants, even if dad is a scumbag. He’s not in jail so have him or Charles or Edward walk her down, or she can walk with both parents or solo. Just do it and get it over with, assuming the fiancé sticks around. Meghan’s dad wasn’t there and she walked herself to the alter after Charles escorted her down the aisle. Maybe Bea is the one getting cold feet. She starting to seem a bit of a pity party attention seekers it all this handwringing. She wants a big splashypublic shindig and now won’t get it, hence the whining and cancellations.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Eugenie’s tv wedding with 800 guests was not modest. Lady Sarah’s, with fewer than 200 guests at St. Stephen’s Walbrook, was closer to modest for a royal-adjacent wedding.

  26. Amy Knight says:

    This whole bit about “feeling sorry for Bea because she deserves the wedding she wants” is seriously f@&ked and out of touch. What does that mean???? People deserve e food, shelter, and clean water. Bea doesn’t deserve anything. FFS.

    • duchesschicana says:

      There is always someone suffering worse, ALWAYS. Doesnt mean she dont deserve a nice day. With that logic people dont desrve nice holidays to laugh or smile. You or me dont deserve happy momments because someone else is always suffering worse.

  27. Elizabeth says:

    When I was a teenager and thought I might marry Prince Edward one day, I wanted to have a very small wedding at Crathie during the summer vacation and honeymoon at the Braemar Games.

  28. Mego says:

    Eugenie’s wedding should never have been televised/public and the fact that it was really highlights Andrew’s grandiosity and sense of entitlement. I don’t see why Beatrice can’t have a private wedding at Windsor whenever she wishes to as long as the public isn’t funding additional security etc. If it’s private I don’t think anyone would or should care.

    • STEPHANIE says:

      It did get two million viewers on ITV and was a ratings boost for them. I was thrilled to watch here in va being as my boss held a meeting during the last royal wedding that was televised and everyone at my job missed it live at 7 am est

  29. duchesschicana says:

    I wont be taking anything as fact, until they officially announce things, until then everything is tabloid gossip for click bait :P

    • Jax says:

      You realize you are on a gossip site right? We’re gonna talk no matter how many times you cut and paste the same comments.

      • duchesschicana says:

        Just spreading my opinion around with some facts, not a crime *shrugs

      • duchesschicana says:

        I admit I can be VERY VERY wrong about the couple and they will spilt , dont know things as an absolute. If it makes you feel better I’ll restrain myself in the future ^_-

  30. Bread and Circuses says:

    I kind of like Beatrice and Eugenie. Both their parents are scum-buckets with disarmingly sunny personalities, but it seems like the girls mostly just inherited the sunniness, not the skeeviness.

    I mean, I don’t think they’re innocent angels, per se, but they seem mostly harmless, which is waaaaay better than how I’d describe either Prince Andrew or Sarah Ferguson.

    Possibly biasing me is the fact I think the princesses have always gotten a lot of sexist, ugly criticism for their looks when, in my opinion, they’re both super-pretty, albeit in an unconventional way.

  31. What's Inside says:

    This wedding will not happen.

  32. Jack says:

    **** ET. The scandal is not Randy Andy’s “affiliation” with Jeffrey Epstein. It’s the allegation that Andy f***** a teenager.

    • Lucy De Blois says:

      I’m sorry, but Andy’s scandal it is the “affiliation” with Epstein too. The son of the Queen of England doesn’t stroll on the park arm-in-arm with someone who just got released from a federal prision, to “break up with him”, like Andy said. What kind of friendship is that??!!

  33. LilaFowler says:

    I feel sorry for her.

  34. Evron says:

    Scientific research has shown that most couples that marry are usually fairly well matched in the looks department. However, if there are other circumstances such as money, social status and family connections, the lesser attractive partner can make up for the relative lack of good looks. In this case I think most people would agree that Beatrice’s fiance is significantly better looking than she is. Her Royal Family connection gives her considerable pull in the social status area. With Prince Andrew’s nasty fall from grace that prestige is badly, possibly permanently tarnished. If a true and deep love has developed between them, then perhaps none of this matters, but at this point one would not be surprised if Edoardo develops some very cold feet.
