Princess Beatrice wants a big 2021 wedding ‘to bolster the nation’s morale’

Princess Beatrice and  Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's wedding may be postponed **FILE PHOTOS**

It’s been a few years weeks since we talked about Princess Beatrice’s struggle-wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. For months after their engagement, they were not allowed to announce anything about their wedding. They had to change their wedding plans because Prince Andrew is a terrible person and he showed how terrible he is during a BBC interview. They finally got to schedule their small palace tent-wedding in May. Then the coronavirus lockdown hit and their plans were thrown into disarray. That’s where we left things two weeks ago (feels like a lifetime): Beatrice and Edo were likely going to postpone their wedding until next year, but no one had confirmed anything. Now it seems certain that a postponement will come. And not only that, Beatrice seems hellbent on doing a big, splashy wedding next year. From the Daily Mail’s Talk of the Town column:

Princess Beatrice has a wonderful idea to bolster the nation’s morale – an even bigger wedding for her and fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi! The couple were due to marry at St James’s Palace in London next month, before the Queen hosted a reception for the happy couple in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. The smaller, private ceremony was planned after Bea’s father Prince Andrew was engulfed in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, culminating in his humiliating interview with Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis. But Bea’s big day was put on hold following the Government’s advice about social distancing due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Now friends tell me that the cancellation might be a blessing in disguise, as plans are being hatched for a much larger affair next year. That should be the perfect tonic for Britons fed up after lockdown. An insider says: ‘As the granddaughter of the Queen, it seems unfair that Bea would have had to hide her nuptials from the public when her younger sister Eugenie did not have to. Eugenie’s wedding was televised and watched by three million viewers in the UK alone. Beatrice and Eugenie’s profiles and workload will increase after the departure of Harry and Meghan.

‘Beatrice wants to show the public that she will never shirk her civic duties. She wants the public to see her as an individual, and not to be judged for the mistakes of her father. By next year, it would be wonderful if she could hold her head up high as she walks down the aisle in front of hundreds of people.’

Friends suggest St George’s Chapel, Windsor, which can accommodate 800 guests, would be the obvious choice for the ceremony. It remains to be seen if it would be appropriate for Bea to follow Eugenie by having the reception at their father’s official residence, Royal Lodge. Perhaps a Royal Wedding in 2021 is just what is needed to boost the spirit of the nation.

[From The Daily Mail]

I just… I mean… it’s sort of funny, right? We could all use a brief moment of hilarity. Millions unemployed, the global economy in free-fall, an incipient recession/depression, and thousands dying every day from a viral pandemic. And there’s Princess Beatrice, opportunistically claiming that it’s her God-given right to have a BIG taxpayer-funded wedding next year as a special treat because A) she had to cancel her small wedding, B) people will have forgotten about her horrible father by then, C) she wants a big wedding to lift up the nation! All of these arguments make sense if you’re within the royal family though, so I imagine the Queen will sign off on this completely.

    Your privilege is showing, Bea.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      SO true. IF they *really* wanted to be *married* (and all that entails), they’d have done it already.

      Hell…I saw a couple on the Today show this morning, they got married, and had their “reception”: all their friends lined the sides of the street (WHILE STAYING *IN* THEIR CARS), and waved and held up signs of written love and congratulations, while the couple walked down the middle of the block (he in his tux, she in her gown), he even did a “dip kiss” for their friends, who cheered.

      THIS is having a wedding *with all your friends* at this point in time.

    • Onnit says:

      I can’t believe that I’m actually writing the following, but it may be a very positive spectacle: I remember when Australia pretty much shut down for Charles and Diana’s wedding. While I think she is thirstier than the Sahara, royal weddings do seem to give the plebs something to be distracted by (just look at GOT). Personally, I think she wants any justification to have a giant wedding that is paid for by the proletariat (I’m not a royal fan), but giving people something innocuous to talk about is much needed these days.

      • Waitwhat? says:

        Hmm. It’s possible, but it’s more likely to backfire, I think. No one really knows what the world will look like in summer 2021. To imagine that the British public will crowd the sides of the roads cheering a grand-daughter of a constitutional monarch because it brings some colour and light into our dreary, plebian lives seems patronising and out of touch.

        Millions watched Charles and Diana get married, true, but that was almost 40 years ago. The view of the monarchy has changed radically since then, beginning with tawdry tales of adultery, cycling through shady financial deals, and ending up with involvement in a child sex trafficking ring. (There were also only 3 tv channels in the UK in 1981😁) I understand why the Queen and PW are trying to evoke the spirit of the Blitz (as was Boris Johnson before he got sick) but even then, Londoners booed the King and QM when they visited the East End.

        Tl;dr – someone should talk Bea out of this, but between the general BRF sense of entitlement and her parents’ particular grifting nature, I don’t see it.

      • Sofia says:

        Yes but Charles was the heir to the throne. Bea is 9th in line with a pedo father. I know Bea isn’t responsible for Andrew’s behaviour but his stink has unfortunately been added to her and her sister. I know it isn’t fair but it is what it is.

    • Tessa says:

      Bea is way down in line of succession and not called on to do royal work. It is different than the wedding of Charles and DIana, CHarles was as he is today Prince of Wales and direct successor to the Queen. I don’t think there will be that much interest.

      • SomeChick says:

        Butbutbut! It says: She will never shirk her civic duties!

        Like the duty to have a ridiculously enormous and expensive spectacle of a wedding! She deserves to be on the tee bee! In a giant tiara and expensive gown! IT IS HER DUTY. So get the hell out of the way and let her do it!

        God save (everyone from) the queen!

      • I love that her civic duty is to have a big splashy wedding at the taxpayers expense. This is Andrew and Fergie talking thru her mouth. British television didn’t even want to cover Eugenie’s wedding but Andrew finally bullied one outlet in to covering it for 90 minutes or so. And let’s pause to remember those great panoramic views of Eugenie’s carriage ride showing almost no crowds to control, but all that amped up security and crowd control personnel had to be paid for anyway by the taxpayer. An over-the-top wedding for Beatrice is just what a collapsed economy needs. Tea towel souvenir, anyone?

  2. lizzieb says:

    🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮 she and the family are absolutely clueless.

  3. Flamingo says:

    I don’t see this wedding ever happening. I’m guessing that a statement will be made this fall about how they’ve decided to go different directions, but will remain good friends.

    • Ali says:

      I agree.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’d be surprised if this wedding ever takes place. If they’d wanted to be married, it would have happened already. There’s been enough space between her sister’s and Harry and Meghan’s weddings for them to have their own spectacle.

    • Ellie says:

      While it’s unfair and sexist and irksome to consider, I think she is just desperate to be married. Her younger sister got there first and she is likely jealous and feeling left out.

      It doesn’t matter who this guy is, nor the baggage he brings along.

  4. Mac says:

    She is smoking the good sh$t. LOL

  5. rawiya says:

    No offence to Ben Affleck (thanks, Kanye) but watching these two (with their beady eyes) would not bolster my morale. But do you, Britain.

    • minx says:

      Really. Those pictures of them, he’s never looking at her or even acknowledging her presence. It’s embarrassing how little he seems to care. Their wedding would be a cringe fest.

  6. Silas says:

    Is Beatrice this tone deaf or is she being thrown under the bus to deflect attention, or both?

    • Becks1 says:

      I think both. This is so tone deaf and I would hope this isn’t something that is actually being discussed within the royal family. Most of the reactions I saw to this story were negative so it could have been floated to deflect attention

      • ArtHistorian says:

        It could also be floated to gauge the public mood. Something similar was done up to Christmas last year where there were several articles about Andrew possibly participating in the public Christmas walk. The public reaction was very negative – and indeed he didn’t participate – but we all know that he would have loved to.

    • Ruby_Woo says:

      This is 100% fake news.

      Neither the York girls seemed that desperate to be in the lime light (unlike their parents). It was always suggested the Beatrice wanted a small private wedding (especially after her fathers car crash of an interview). Even Eugenie’s wedding felt more like an ego boost for her father than actually for her.

      The Daily Mail knows exactly what it’s doing and what kind of negative reaction this story would get. Either the Daily Mail are just making up crap cos Royal stories always sell and they’ve ran out of creative ways to blame Meghan for something or another.

      Or, Williams leaked this fake story to make him look better in comparison. Maybe to distract from his non-piloting effort against the coronavirus?

      Beatrice was trending on UK twitter and people were getting really angry about this; even though none of this actually came out of her mouth. It just reminded me of all the non-stories that were printed about Meghan that would go viral with people calling for her to be exiled.

      These tabloids are always looking for a victim.

      • Kerbear says:

        Could this be one of Andrew’s trial balloons for the press to see how it would go over?

      • Amy Too says:

        If it is Andrew trying it on, it’s funny that in every single article about this wedding, they spend a long paragraph, towards the beginning of the article, reminding us all about how horrible he is and listing all the stupid, immoral, tone deaf, and ruinous things he’s done. I love how every article is like “Beatrice wants to be judged as her own person, and she’s holding enough time has passed for people to have forgotten about her dad. Oh and by the way, here’s a list of what her dad did just to remind everyone and ensure it’s never forgotten.” LOL.

      • Ruby_Woo says:

        @Kerbear: surely he can’t be that dumb? But then I’m reminded that we’re talking about Andrew!

      • Lizzie says:

        I’ve read that William was really dragged over his latest stupid comment, maybe he leaked this to take the focus off himself. He’s done it a million times.

      • Anonymous says:

        The trial balloon is testing the waters for Beatrice’s return as royal sacrificial lamb.

    • Jamie says:

      I think she’s being thrown under the bus. If you look at the way the DM story is written, the claim that Bea wants to do it for Britain seems to be the DM editorializing.
      If the quotes from friends are to be believed, she just wants to have the same event her sister had (which is typical for siblings) and to not have her father’s stink on her. The grandiose notion that it’ll help GB doesn’t come from friends.

      • Anonymous says:

        Has anyone noticed no matter the royal, quotes from friends all have the same tone? Almost makes me believe they’re fake. Nah!

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Likely both, but this is definitely suspect timing. Right after William gets shellacked for his comments, this story and the Goodall piece conveniently come out to change the conversation.

  7. Mei says:


    Now how about the millions that are going to go towards this if it happens are used now instead to bolster stocks of PPE to prevent more healthcare professionals from contracting covid-19? Or to deliver supplies to those having to self-isolate or under extreme shielding due to existing health conditions? Or to provide mental health support to tens of thousands of people that are suffering under this current situation? How. about. that.

    • LadyAnne says:

      THIS. Thank you. Seriously.

    • sarphati says:

      You were reading my mind! Nobody cares about your wedding except maybe mom and dad! Do the world a favor and elope. And use the money to bolster the NHS morale which is so much more worthy than your frivolity!

    • SomeChick says:

      Like they would ever spend their own money on other people, when they could spend it on themselves.

  8. LadyAnne says:

    As a UK tax-payer: WHAT THE ACTUAL F***?? My morale doesn’t need your tacky wedding, thank you very much, grifter. This family is the worst and they have no clue at all.

    • Mei says:

      Ditto. I do not want my taxes to pay for some tone-deaf spectacle. This can also apply to most things W&K do to be fair, and I am all for giving credit where it’s due.

  9. Erinn says:

    Ahahaha, poor Bea. You just can’t make fetch happen.

    Like – I get it. There usually is a lot of buzz surrounding royal weddings, and all that jazz, and I’m sure she’s excited. And I’m sure focusing her energy on that is a bright spot for her right now. But this is just not the time nor the place. I used to think it wasn’t the case, but it seems like they’re more like their parents than I’d thought.

  10. Ali says:

    I hope this is a lie because no one can be this dumb.

  11. Frida_K says:

    “Perhaps a Royal Wedding in 2021 is just what is needed to boost the spirit of the nation.”


    Sorry, trial balloon, but the answer is NOPE.

  12. Well-Wisher says:

    What is she thinking? Not unsurprising this is not well received , her happiness is personal not a national issue. Maybe she’ll be the scapegoat.

  13. Sofia says:

    No fucking thank you. I obviously can’t speak for every Brit but this one won’t have her morale boosted by the 9th in line who’s father isn’t even a working royal having a massive and very expensive wedding.

  14. Livvers says:

    Is one of the pre-wedding events going to be a My Man Godfrey-esque scavenger hunt?

  15. GR says:

    If these two do manage to get to the altar, I sure hope the kids look like him.

  16. M Narang says:

    imagine the outrage if Meghan or Harry said something like this.

    • BabsORIG says:

      Gee, why even bring them up in the first place? Can’t other members of the BRF crash and burn on their own without people dragging H&M down with the rest of them?

      Personally I believe this hit piece is a deflation from William being dragged mercilessly yesterday. The Meghan and Harry hit pieces are dried out so now the York girls take their place under the proverbial bus, Willileaks knows no shame.

  17. JRenee says:

    If you’re truly interested in being married, get on with it. Sheesh!

    • damejudi says:

      This x10000.
      Again, BRF has an opportunity here. Want to show that you calmly carry on in the face of crisis? Go to the registry office with your witnesses and get married. Have someone document using phone video and pics. Issue a statement about what’s important is starting your marriage, and you’ll have the party LATER.

      You’re welcome.

      • Lara (the other) says:

        And maybe donate the money saved and ask for donations for those affected by COVID instead of wedding presents.

  18. BUBS says:

    “‘Beatrice wants to show the public that she will never shirk her civic duties.” What exactly is the correlation between this and the subject at hand – i.e. Beatrice’s desire to have a great, big, glitzy wedding? Or do the royals count public funded nuptials as part of their ‘civic duties’?

    • HMC says:

      Just a reminder to everyone that Andrew wants at least one of his daughters to be working royals and if she has to audition fornthebrole with a splashy televised very expensive wedding, well that’s a sacrifice he is willing to make.

  19. samipup says:

    I just want to see her dreadful wedding dress. You know it will be awful. Also, his eyes are weirdly psychotic looking…always.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Eugenie’s wedding dress was pretty good so maybe there is hope for Beatrice.

    • Ellie says:

      I cannot fathom why they both dress so poorly, completely inappropriately for their shapes….
      They have access to whatever they want (stylists, designers, custom clothes… bloody Gok Wan would dress them if they asked) but still….

      They have lovely womanly figures but drape themselves in thick heavy fabrics so their figures are obscured and they look much thicker. Madness! Get into Kibbe and find your true essence ladies! Merriam Style on YouTube is amazing for this!

  20. Valiantly Varnished says:

    People would have to CARE about you first in order to have their morale boosted by you Bea. Just admit you want a big wedding hun like your sister hun.

  21. Amy Too says:

    One of my favorite parts of this article is her talking about how she’s her own person who isn’t her father and all the crap he’s done shouldn’t reflect on her. She wants to walk down the aisle with her held high as her own person. But presumably, Andrew will be walking her down the aisle, right? So which is it? You’re your own person, a complete and total individual, separate and not to be associated with all the illegal, immoral, shady, and reputation crushing behavior of your father, a beacon of light in these troubling times floating down the aisle as an innocent member of a horrible family who can hold her head high knowing that she’s not responsible for her father….. OR you’re an extension of your father, leaning on him and putting him directly in the spotlight as he walks you down the aisle, reinforcing to the world that you support and respect him enough to let him be a HUGE part of your big day?

    • SilentStar says:

      In my opinion, you can’t be walked down the aisle to be given away by your father and be “your own person” at the same time. The very act is a symbol of a woman being the father’s property until he gives her to her husband, and I don’t know why women continue to go along with it.

  22. Sid says:

    It is amazing how everytime William does or says something stupid and finds himself being dragged mercilessly, suddey a negative story pops up about another BRF member to take the heat off. How magical.

    • BabsORIG says:

      Exactly what i think. I posted before reading yours, how convenient indeed!!.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      It’s such a strange “coincidence” every time that happens, right?

    • Harper says:

      Trouble is, the Yorks can leak too. It was immediately after Eugenie’s wedding that the Meghan bashing began. I think they will have a go at Wills if they see him going after Bea. “I heard that a certain Royal couple, who are sporting suspicious tans in their video chats, took advantage of the lockdown to fly private to Mustique.” You know, that sort of thing.

  23. Maggie May says:

    She’s getting dragged for this in the UK 😂 I really really hope this story is made up… if not then she’s more like her character from The Windsors than I thought. So tone deaf. To be fair I do feel for anyone having to delay their weddings… but those I know who are seem to expect that whenever they do reschedule, they are looking at something much smaller – not knowing how things will be – not bigger!!! She’s vastly overestimated her popularity and importance here…

    • Maggie May —- Read The OG comment above under response number 1. Now that is a beautiful, creative wedding that is a truly bright spot. I got a smile in my heart just reading about it. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  24. TheOriginalMia says:

    Don’t believe a word of this. It’s so incredibly time deaf. Wouldn’t surprise me if the source of this article is the genius PR at Kensington Palace.

  25. Mika says:

    I know it’ not HER fault that her dad is almost certainly a rapist pedophile involved in human trafficking but…. she knows that we know that her dad is almost certainly a rapist pedophile involved in human trafficking?

    • Lizzie says:

      Her father’s crimes are not her fault; but she grasps at the entitlements that come from being his daughter. Can you have it both ways?

  26. KBeth says:

    1) They likely won’t make it to the altar.
    2) Nobody cares.

  27. line says:

    Sweet, jesus this family was completely stupid, nobody cares about York’s girls. Then the end of social distancied confinement is not the end of the crisis because after that the whole world will face a huge economic crisis and it’s not the marriage of a rich and lazy person who will cheer people up.

  28. My3cents says:

    You know what would lift my moral? Seeing Andrew behind bars.

  29. Mina_Esq says:

    Hahahaha bless her delusional heart.

  30. ABritGuest says:

    She was trending with this story in the U.K. last night. I think wedding is being postponed because UK’s lockdown is likely to be extended into her wedding month.

    Are his parents in Italy? Likely they can’t travel right now so even if they wanted to forego big wedding& just do super small wedding with just nearest& dearest, if his parents are abroad, they could miss out. Plus isn’t Beatrice meant to be close to her grandparents? So sure she wants them at her wedding. But think Fail& Express went with BS angle about ‘lifting the nation’ to be mischievous& cause outage which worked. I’d like to think even the royals aren’t so dumb to put that out there.

    Eyeroll at the obligatory Sussexes’ mention but with reference to Beatrice/Eugenie having to step up, is the plan really to make Beatrice/Eugenie working royals? After Andrew stepped down from duties, polls in Britain suggested people wanted the slimmed down monarchy ASAP.

  31. Nina Simone says:

    Maybe I’m superstitious but it seems they keep having to change the wedding date and plans (even pre coronavirus). To me that indicates the universe telling them they are not meant to be.

  32. phlyfiremama says:

    Sure, that’s EXACTLY what the taxpayers need: a depletion of the more NHS funds to fund the royal wedding!!! Forget about thousands of people dying from an inadequate health system due to the MONEY BEING SPENT ELSEWHERE, here is a royal wedding!! Let the hoi polloi eat wedding cake!!!

  33. Redgrl says:

    Dear Beatrice,
    No one – I repeat no one – cares about your wedding. No one wants to see you get married except presumably your friends and family. Everyone – except for other thieves, pedophile supporters and grifters – hates your parents.
    Just stop. If you care about being married (vs caring about a big wedding and showing off) just go and do it quietly.
    Kind regards

  34. Lizzie says:

    This apple did not fall far from the Will ‘Now is a perfect time for self-promotion’ tree.

    If this happens I hope no one outside of the wedding guests show up and there is no one to grandly wave to.

  35. February Pisces says:

    This has willieleaks written all over it. Making Bea look like a bridezilla who only cares about having a huge party whilst people are dying is just another distraction for the fact william was getting dragged yesterday on twitter. Same with harry and the Jane Goodall comments. Nice try William.

  36. Elizabeth says:

    “The mistakes of her father” — the MISTAKES. I think they mean the crimes of sexual violence against women / teenaged / underaged girls? For which he’ll never see trial nor face legal consequences? Unbelievable. This is why rapists continue to get off. Broader society repeatedly enforces the idea that rape isn’t a real crime.

  37. Annie says:

    Oh henny… you’re not William or Harry. I know that if this was them, of course people would still look forward to their wedding if it happened post quarantine. But not a huge lavish wedding paid for by the people while such people are struggling and unemployed. That’s not exactly food for the soul. It’s actually demoralizing. Like, have some sense here. If you want people to like you this is not the way. The last thing people want to see right now is wealthy people rubbing their money in struggling people’s faces. And right now many people are struggling. Influencers are losing fans for their tone deaf posts and actions. Justin Timberlake got shit for posting pictures of himself in his estate. Comedians look awful doing monologues from their mansions. It’s just not going well enough. Read the room.

  38. ProfPlum says:

    Oh, Bea. This is so struggly.

  39. LW says:

    God, can they please quit trying to make the york girls happen.

  40. Couch potato says:

    So Bea and Eug can work part time as royals, but H&M can’t?

    • Sofia says:

      They aren’t part time royals at all. Any charity work they do, they do as private citizens. They are not working royals in ANY capacity – full time or part time

      • Ali says:

        The Kent’s are part time royals.

      • Sofia says:

        I know but @Couch potato was talking only about the York girls

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        They are not working royals. But they can publicly use their “HRH” titles, even in their private jobs. The HRH title has nothing to do with whether a person is a working royal or not — that rumor was created as an excuse to stop Harry and Meghan from being able to be called “royal.”

  41. yinyang says:

    Oh please these people are so full of themselves, you know what boosts morale, giving leniency on rents/mortgages, issusing everyone faced with jobloss a couple thousand to survive for the next few months on lockdown, hooking our kids up with easy access to education, or free daycare for those frontline workers.

  42. Other Renee says:

    If the story is made up, issue a statement to that effect, Bea.

  43. aquarius64 says:

    If Bea leaked this she looks like an entitled idiot and I hope the FBI crashes the wedding armed with a warrant for Andrew’s arrest.

    If Willie leaked this he’s an entitled jerk who will throw any family under the double decker bus to hide his mess. May karma hits him with Rose and any other garden his scepter wanders in.

  44. Amelie says:

    Oh Beatrice! I had sympathy for her when her father made a fool of himself in that interview last fall, all the attention was on idiotic Andrew and whatever big splashy affair she wanted was shot to hell from then on. I would have been more impressed had she actually disowned her father but that’s too much to hope for.

    She had plenty of opportunity to get married though, she could have planned something small months ago and just gone ahead and done it. She’s just been waiting for the “right time” to have her big wedding and have all eyes on her and it’s a losing battle. The difference between her and Eugenie is all in timing–Eugenie got married before Epstein committed suicide and the scrutiny shifted to her father which is really the only reason Eugenie was able to have her big splashy wedding. Now the coronavirus pandemic has invaded the entire planet and no one wants to hear about Bea’s wedding plans when people are dying. She should have just eloped in Italy when she had the chance. I think none of us expects them to actually get married at this point.

  45. Lowrider says:

    She should get a big wedding. Why not? She may be called on to fill Harry’s vacant role.

    • Aria says:

      Lol prince charles will die than yorks girls as working royals.

    • Sofia says:

      The York girls have a terrible reputation in the UK. They are generally seen as spoilt if people even bother to remember they exist. A big fuss was created by people when it was revealed they were having taxpayer funded security. It was quite a big fuss to the point their security was removed due to the backlash.

      They may not deserve their reputation but it’s the one they’ve got. So making them working royals will not go down well with the public.

      • Lowrider says:

        The royal PR machine could rebrand her image. Look what they did for Workshy Wils and Duchess Doolittle.

      • Sofia says:

        I mean William and Kate are the heir and the wife to the heir. They were always going to get a rosy comparison even if Harry had not married a biracial woman.

        I don’t think William or the rest of the courtiers will want to spend time and energy into rebranding the 9th in line so that she and her sister could work. If they wanted to do that, they would be on their way to rebranding Andrew but they are being passive about it. As in “Keep him quiet and everyone will forget!” – as if.

        I have no doubt Bea and Eugenie (more so Bea) want to be working royals but I honestly don’t think it’ll happen – especially if the rumours of Charles wanting a slimmed down monarchy is true

  46. Golly Gee says:

    As Edoardo breathes a sigh of relief at his reprieve. Now he’ll have time to commission that fake get-away passport.

    Also, I don’t believe this is necessarily coming from anyone outside the Daily Mail. Reporters there are probably sitting around, picking their noses trying to think of stuff to write and they come up with this.

  47. L4frimaire says:

    You know, I hope she has a big splashy over the top wedding, that costs millions and they stick every pound and penny of the cost to U.K. taxpayer. Whose going to tell them no? Enjoy your real royals, it’s what they deserve. Would love to see Sarah Ferguson in some tight fitting dress, caked makeup, and stupid hat talking it up to every news outlet and Andrew looking as pompous and grand as his skeevy fat face will allow. Beas dress will probably be some lace monstrosity and Edo will have his perpetual shifty deer in the headlights look. Sure, cheer everyone up as you spend their money on yourself for your own personal enjoyment. That’s how they buy you and think they own your life from then on. Enjoy getting played everyone.

    If this is even true. It is the Daily Fail. And, until Meghan, Beatrice was one of their favorite targets. Regular stories designed to elicit comments deriding her looks, fashion sense, personality, etc.

    As a British taxpayer, this makes me feel like vomiting. However this is the Daily Mail and it is so ridiculous that it reads like fake news, so I don’t really want to be mad at Beatrice for it (and I also wish people wouldn’t go on about her looks). She, and her family, can’t be *that* tone deaf. Can they…?

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Andrew certainly is that tone-deaf – and then some, so I wouldn’t put it past her being incredibly out of touch. Her parents are stupid and shameless – and she has lived her entire life insulated by extreme privilege. That can make a person unable to read the room.

    Isn’t the monarch automatically the head of the church? So the royal family must be VERY religious? Did Beatrice ever consider that God is sending her a sign (multiple signs) that this wedding shouldn’t take place? What happens next year, will Phillip die? Then after the nation mourns the loss of that racist @ss, will something else happen? The queen dies? Maybe Beatrice should either marry in a registrar’s office or forget the whole thing.

    Oh, Honey.

    What. A. Narcissist.

    I’m sure the taxpayer is thrilled about pouring millions of dollars in a one minute wedding (seriously this relationship will not last.).

  54. The Recluse says:

    Okay…that’s it!
    Beatrice needs to go away.

    LoL Dear Lord, these royal grand-kids can be delusional. The Queen’s recent speech buoyed the nation and the world because a) she is the Queen; b) she has not once, in her entire reign, dropped character; and c) she survived the Blitz in WWII and carries that stoicism with her.

    However, I sincerely doubt that most people, even the British, will be all that “buoyed” by the spectacle of two excruciatingly privileged young people broadcasting their extravagant wedding in the midst of what is likely to be a major recession.

    I wish none of Fergie’s kids any ill. But, with Harry and Meghan gone, imo it is down now to the Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla, Will and Kate and their kids. The survival of that monarchy is on the tiny shoulders of 6 year-old George and the aunts and uncles and extended family relatives need to be cut loose. The
    extra royals can go back to being just good old-fashioned landed gentry.
