Princess Beatrice quietly married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi this morning in Windsor

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

Princess Beatrice was supposed to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in May at Buckingham Palace, or to be more specific, she was supposed to have her wedding reception in a tent on palace grounds and marry at one of the smaller royal chapels in London. Those wedding plans were cancelled because of the pandemic in April. We also heard that Beatrice wanted a huge wedding next year to “bolster the nation’s morale,” in what was one of the most tone-deaf royal articles I’ve ever read. Anyway, guess what happened? Beatrice and Edoardo got married. They did a very simple, no drama wedding in Windsor this morning. Just days after Ghislaine Maxwell was arraigned. No, this is not the most obvious effort ever to change the story away from Beatrice’s pervert father!

Princess Beatrice has today married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at a secret Royal Wedding in Windsor, The Sun can exclusively reveal. The Queen, 94, and Duke of Edinburgh, 99, joined Prince Andrew, 60, at the scaled-down Covid-secure wedding with around 20 guests this morning. Beatrice, 31, and Edo, 37, said ‘I do’ surrounded by close family and friends in All Saints Chapel, Windsor Great Park after Covid-19 scuppered their original plans.

A select group gathered for a more intimate ceremony today, with strict social distancing measures in place. The Queen was driven with Prince Philip from Windsor Castle, where they had been isolating since March, three miles up the Long Walk and through Windsor Great Park to the private church. She left the ceremony at 11.45am and was driven back to Windsor Castle. It is the first time Andrew has been with the Queen since before lockdown and arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell.

A friend of the couple said the nuptials were arranged today to make sure the Queen could attend before she leaves Windsor for Balmoral at the end of the month. A friend of Beatrice’s said: “A massive wedding was out of the question because of coronavirus. They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity. So many guests were disappointed not to make the big day but understood the reason for it. They needed to make the wedding Covid-secure and safe for the Queen so what better way than the All Saints Chapel with reception on site at the Royal Lodge. They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right.”

It is understood Beatrice spent the night before the wedding at the 30-room Royal Lodge with mum Sarah Ferguson, and dad Andrew, before making the walk to the church in the grounds.

Sources also say that in the end, Beatrice and Edo wanted a smaller wedding, which is what they got, and they also wanted to avoid a massive security bill, which is smart. I’m genuinely surprised they did this and I’m happy they decided to just do it in a very simple, low-drama style. But yeah, I’m sure Prince Andrew was very, very happy to have this story out there this week in particular. I wonder if we’ll get some wedding portraits too – I am very interested in seeing Beatrice’s dress!

    Congratulations to them both! A simple wedding was a good idea. If they both wanted to be married more than a big fuss of a wedding, then a simple wedding was a good way to go. They can always have a massive party in London/Italy a year later or something.

    May they have many happy years together.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Wish them all the best and a very happy life.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Smart move! Now they can get on with their lives…

    • Tessa says:

      I don’t think they really had any choice considering recent events. Eduardo looks to me a little too much on the slick side. I hope she is doing the right thing.

      • Aitana says:

        Tessa, UR thoughts of him being “slick” R spot on, IMO. Have U seen any photos of his previous girlfriend, the mother of his child? I saw one & she’s very beautiful. I think he’s a social climber big time. It’s soooo convenient for him to “fall N love” with & marry Beatrice. It’s so he can have “the easy life.”

      • Tessa says:

        I agree with you. His ex girlfriend is very beautiful. I do see him as an opportunist his marrying a “title” and all that.

      • Nic919 says:

        There are red flags all over with him but the media will give him a way bigger pass because he isn’t a biracial American woman.

      • Peony_Wise says:

        I disagree about Edo Mapelli Mozzi’s character. We can’t judge a person’s character or motivations simply by how they look. He is definitely an attractive ‘pretty boy’ in terms of his looks. But judging by his self-made career accomplishments at a young age, I do not see him as a ‘slick’ lightweight grifter in any way.

        Also, he already comes from a wealthy, well-connected family that run in aristocratic circles. Sure, the notoriety of marrying Beatrice has enhanced his public profile. Still, Edo was already receiving praise and numerous media write-ups in real estate & property development publications, including international mainstream outlets such as The NY Times, well before he began dating Bea. In fact, IMHO, Bea is more the fortunate party in this marriage alliance/ romance.

        Let’s also be mindful of the fact that Bea and Edo had known each other for years via their families’ friendly relationship. He’s about 6 years older than Bea, so they probably knew each other from afar when growing up, because that’s a bit of an age difference in childhood, but not as much in adulthood.

        Then, Bea was in a ten-year daze with the wrong man (whom BTW, Wills is said to dislike — maybe that shiftless, heartbreaker Dave guy was too much like looking in a mirror for Wills, LOL). In those same years, Edo was surely concentrating on building his career. He’s far from being a playboy. It appears to me that Bea and Edo hooked up at the right time in their lives.

        Of course, Edo’s former flame, Dara Huang, was still living in. But I accept that they’d broken up, and the live-in arrangement was due entirely to Wolfie. From the initial media talkativeness and vibes given off by Dara and her parents, it’s possible that Dara was trying hard to hold on to Edo, and their son, Wolfie, was the result. Edo shares responsibility for conceiving Wolfie, but Dara becoming pregnant appears to be what pushed Edo into making more of a commitment. So IMO, that shows he’s a stand-up father. But yet he seems to have dragged his feet about wanting to marry Dara. And they had broken up already when Edo & Bea began dating, despite tabloid tales fueled by Dara and her parents spouting off in reaction to Bea coming into the picture.

      • Priscila says:

        @Peony_Wise wow, you put a lot of thought in it. Yes, love might be true, but IMHO, if you broke up, you move out. Period. We are speaking about very rich people, not a couple forced to share the same quarters while separated because they are broke. Not to mention, a baby would have no recollection nor trauma of witnessing the end of a relationship, so there goes the ” think of the children” excuse.

        and no, I had no problem with your theory until you started blaming Dara nad her parents for spreading lies. Sounds very convenient to me, another woman from another race ” spoiling” the fun of the good white princess- ugh!

        Most likely Edo was indeed with Dara, juggled both women for a time, then decided on Beatrice and Dara´s parents were obviously furious at the deception.

      • Peony_Wise says:

        @Aitana, I see no evidence that Edo saw Bea as an opportunity to live an ‘easy’ life. He has created a hugely successful and lucrative property development career, as a very young man to boot! I’ve read a number of articles in industry journals and mainstream publications in which he talks in depth about his creative projects. His business acumen is evident. He already has prestige in his field, connections, and family wealth, as well as an Italian title he doesn’t use.

        Bea is the one who couldn’t have done any better, IMO! Especially now, with taint of her father’s indiscretions. And Edo stuck by her. Plus that ring he designed for her is ooh la la. So pretty. Edo appears to be a caring romantic. It’s not impossible that he cares deeply for Bea and wishes to be protective of her because of his feelings for her. He was quoted as making some very romantic pronouncements at the time of their engagement. Plus, he’s not bad on the eyes either. They will live in style because of his property development, construction, and interior design expertise.

        Edo doesn’t need the ‘royalty’ connection in the way that some people seem to think. In fact, his glamorous and wealthy Italian connections are much more of an asset than being the recently jilted daughter of scandalous ‘randy Andy.’

      • Peony_Wise says:

        Quoting @Priscila:
        “Yes, love might be true, but IMHO, if you broke up, you move out. Period…
        and no, I had no problem with your theory until you started blaming Dara and her parents for spreading lies. Sounds very convenient to me, another woman from another race ‘spoiling’ the fun of the good white princess- ugh!”

        Hey @Priscila, I respect your thoughts a majority of the time. You have offered great insights in other threads. Here, I have to disagree with your take. First of all, Wolfie being at an age where he isn’t likely to experience trauma due to his parents’ split is moot. I wasn’t saying that is the reason Dara was still living in. She was probably living in moreso because Edo has other properties and he wasn’t always spending the night there. They’d been in a long term relationship and he apparently is not a huge, unkind dick. Dara living in appears to have been a temporary arrangement in the immediate aftermath of their break-up.

        Yet, Wolfie is surely the reason why Edo and Dara were still hanging with each other in the first place. They’d been dating for awhile, with no full commitment by Edo re marriage. Wolfie coming into the picture is what to me seems to have swayed Edo to initially maintain a relationship with Dara. Edo seems to be a devoted and attentive father, which is admirable. Some men who aren’t deeply in love with a woman, sometimes split and become MIA when an unexpected pregnancy and birth of a child happens.

        Sure Edo obviously had true caring for Dara, and he can be blamed for giving the impression to her parents that they were headed to the altar. I still get the feeling though that Edo is a very responsible father who at the same time was unwilling to fully commit to marriage with Dara. He was still hanging around due to his son. He probably arrived at the conclusion of splitting with mixed emotions, but made it clear to Dara, even if not to her parents. We don’t know and can’t be sure about any of our speculations involving intimate, human relationships.

        The parents were surely hurt by the split, and by Edo dating Bea. But they don’t own Edo. Most likely Dara and the parents were enticed to speak out by the tabloids, but that didn’t last very long. So it was maybe the result of an initial knee-jerk response. Edo appears to be kind and not hard to get along with. IMO, Bea is not that much of a catch, so phooey with the ‘white princess’ nonsense.

      • Nic919 says:

        I don’t care about his looks or his money or knowing Beatrice at a young age. He had a baby with another woman and left her (or cheated on her) when that baby was very young. It is messy, and shows sketchiness. Of course Beatrice wanted him because she was on the rebound from that long term relationship where the guy quickly married and had a baby with someone else. Plus her parents are criminals and grifters. So she has no judgment and is an easy target.

        Good luck to them and let’s hope she has a good pre nup.

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        He makes eyes at the cameras far too often for my taste.

      • panda says:

        @Jane’s does your distaste of Edo making eyes at the camera also extend to Meghan, who has frequently been criticized for exactly the same behavior?

      • Peony_Wise says:

        @Nic919, @Priscila, and others who are looking so askance at Edo, there isn’t any evidence that he was still in a romantic relationship with Dara when he began dating Bea. There’s nothing that proves Edo was ‘juggling’ girlfriends, simply because Dara hadn’t moved out yet.

        Dara and Edo had broken up, but they still had a friendly relationship, and they had a son they were raising together. I see Edo as having an upstanding character in wanting to take care of his son. As I said before, he had other properties besides that apartment. Dara still living-in was temporary, in the immediate aftermath of their break-up. They were obviously comfortable with each other, but Edo was not committed to marriage, while Dara to me seemed willing to hang on as long as she could, perhaps hoping she could wear him down. That’s my take. But who knows.

        I don’t see why you are so willing to drag Edo alone, based on the way he looks, when it’s Dara who should have moved out after they broke up. Her behavior makes her seem to have been more into marrying Edo than he was willing to make a lifetime commitment, because as we can see, he didn’t. Based on Edo’s actions and behavior, he appears to love and care deeply for their son, Wolfie, which is commendable.

        It seems like posters aren’t blaming Bea or Dara in any way, but prefer taking potshots at Edo.

      • Peony_Wise says:

        Quoting @Panda:
        “@Jane’s does your distaste of Edo making eyes at the camera also extend to Meghan, who has frequently been criticized for exactly the same behavior?”

        Your query also reminds me of how some critics of Meghan tried to stir-up gossip insinuating that Meghan broke up with Corey Vitiello in order to date Harry, which is false. Corey and Meghan we’re close to breaking up in January 2016, but they held on until April before calling it quits. This was reportedly a couple of months prior to Meghan and Harry meeting on a ‘blind date’.

      • Guest says:

        How can a man from an upper class “aristocratic” title holding Italian family be a social climber? And he already has an easy life, has since he was born! Some of you type “poor” it’s hilarious. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world lead wealthy, privileged, “easy” lives and most aren’t connected to royalty at all. They dream and think big while you stay in your tiny, small lanes for lifetimes.

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        Peony and Panda- Good points. I am pretty biased in Meghan’s favor, I’ll admit that, but I also haven’t seen her eye the cameras nearly as much. I would be more inclined to excuse her too, considering she was an actress for much of her life, so making eye contact with the cameras would be expected over most of her career. That said, I wouldn’t like it if she did it very often either.

        You’ve made a good argument in favor of Edo- hopefully you’re right and their marriage is a happy one.

        Guest- If I didn’t know I was the poorest one here, I would certainly think it’s you, the way you obsess over money.

      • Becks1 says:

        Edo, is that you??

      • Peony_Wise says:

        Quoting @Guest:

        +1,000 @Guest! You said it! ITA, as per my earlier posts.

        And @Becks1, nope. Edo has better things to do than frequent an American gossip site. LOL, but not actually funny. Most of the negative comments here are projections, probably based on some posters’ personal miseries.

      • Tessa says:

        It takes two to bring a baby into the world. Edo and Dara both brought this baby into being. I don’t see anything “heroic” about his wanting to support the child and be a father. He’d have been hauled into court if he gave no support to his child. Bea does have money and the prestige of being the Queen’s granddaughter and Bea is an HRH . If Edo knew Dara wanted marriage and he did not, he could have told her he did not want to marry her. He could have used birth control if he was sleeping with her or just moved on if he knew he did not want anything permanent.

      • notasugarhere says:

        His ‘self-made career accomplishments’? Comes from a shady family with questionable titles and questionable wealth. May look wealthy of paper, but so does Moderately Wealthy of the Pippa marriage. Like the Middletons, all is not what it seems even at customs house.

        Uses those connections for a career, not exactly self-made. Has a child out of wedlock, makes sure not to marry the mother so his eldest son will not inherit the crumbling estate nor any titles.

        I think Beatrice wanted to be married before her grandparents pass away. We all know her picker is faulty and Edo saw an easy mark. Marriage into the shady Windsors is good for his business, so why not make a play for her while still with the mother of his child?

        There’s a whole lot of defending and embiggening of Edo from brand new posters on here, no?

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        There are. That doesn’t usually bother me unless they’re obvious shills. This Guest person, on the other hand, keeps showing up for no apparent reason other than to insult the posters here and taunt us for our perceived lack of wealth. Very bizarre behavior and the level of vituperation makes it genuinely funny, but ultimately it could result in someone’s feelings getting hurt, so I’m calling them out. No one from real money behaves this way.

      • Becks1 says:

        “based on poster’s personal miseries”???? Come on now. This is a gossip site. We gossip.

        And @Jane – yeah, that’s Guest’s MO. I kind of laugh at it now.

  2. Sass says:

    This sounds like the ideal wedding to me: quiet and intimate.

    • Bettyrose says:

      IKR? I said this on a different story about a different couple, but I support celebrating anniversaries, which are actual accomplishments.

      • LittlePenguin says:

        Yes, @Sass and @BettyRose! I agree with you so much. I really wanted to elope because 1. I am a terribly introverted and 2. I knew my MIL and SIL would make it about them (they did, SIL handed out her invites for her wedding during mine), but we landed up compromising and had about 75 people for our wedding which was ok. But, I still think the fact that we celebrated 9 years yesterday and have been thru a ton of hard stuff together in those years is so much bigger than a one day party.

      • bettyrose says:

        LittlePenguin:

        Congratulations on 9 years together!!

  3. SJR says:

    Well, good for her. Congrats to the happy couple.

    Get on with your own life. Your relatives are batshit crazy most of the time, ignore them.
    Many of us have learned this the hard way. Life is short, right now is dangerous, take your happiness and move forward.

  4. Tanguerita says:

    Wow, for once a good move. Congrats to them!
    Maybe they want to start a family and now they can.

    • notasugarhere says:

      You do not have to be married to start a family; Edo started a family without marrying his son’s mother.

      • Krystina says:

        Edo wasn’t with a member of the Royal family previously. I think it’s safe to say the RF would probably not be encouraging pregnancies outside of marriage when it comes to them.

      • notasugarhere says:

        And yet there are people who are in the line of succession to the UK throne who have chosen to have children out-of-wedlock.

    • Ines says:

      Wow @Tanguerita, are there no single mothers in Argentina?

      • Suz says:

        Do you think the Queen would be okay with a publicly acknowledged child out of wedlock from one of her grandchildren? Beatrice isn’t from a “normal family” no matter what they put out in the press. I don’t think Tanguerita was trying to slight single moms.

      • notasugarhere says:

        And maybe we’re making the point that ‘family’ doesn’t have to involve one man, one woman, one marriage certificate, and only then children. But that somehow Edo’s son doesn’t count as ‘family’.

      • Tessa says:

        I doubt the Queen would consider the child one of her great grandchildren. He has a mother and his grandparents through his father and mother. I don’t think the Queen would even consider it. I doubt Fergie and Andrew would consider the child either.

    • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

      If you read the statement and consider only its literal meaning, ‘Maybe they want to start a family and now they can’ never denies that Edo has a family. The most basic meaning is simply that Edo and Beatrice want to start a family of their own. I don’t think there are deeper nuances intended, or any slight to Wolfie.

  5. Priscila says:

    ” They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right.”

    Nice they keep reminding us even the Windsors make sacrifices and are already opening the door for a later, bigger celebration, probably hoping for more good press for Andrew…

    Anyway, Beatrice and Edo made it! I am very surprised, but the timming…is curious to say the least.

    • Becks1 says:

      The timing is definitely curious. I don’t think it had anything to do with the Queen going to Balmoral.

      • Carobell says:

        Is there going to be an 8 pound baby that is ‘premature’ in about 7 months?

        Either way, congratulations to them.

      • Nic919 says:

        It had everything to do with Andrew knowing things will get worse. The Queen would have flown back if needed.

        Although I think this is the first confirmation that the Queen is still going to Balmoral. Prior to that weren’t they saying she wouldn’t?

      • FicklePickle says:

        Honestly? I think they finally managed to convince the father of the bride that a big-ass Royal Party was not going to be happening for at least another year. Wanting to distract from Maxwell was also likely a factor, as in ‘if we do this secret wedding NOW we can distract from her and later when things have gone back to normal we can have a proper party like you want, Daddy (nobody tell Dad we are totally NOT doing the big-ass Royal Party EVER!)’.

        I just imagine Andrew as the Dadzilla here, to a long-suffering (and kinda spoiled and brainless) Beatrice.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Carobell, I wondered the same thing.

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        FicklePickle, I love your take on this.

    • Nic919 says:

      Just a normal family where dad is photographed with multiple sex traffickers and afraid to leave the country because his mommy can’t protect him beyond the borders. :-/.

      They need to stop with this. They aren’t normal in any way.

      • Priscila says:

        This is their normal, and they are eager to try and push this normal to us.

        Unfortunately to them, many are not eating their shit anymore.

      • notasugarhere says:

        And where they can arrange a private wedding in a private chapel at a moment’s notice.

      • Aitana says:

        U got that right! It’s laughable they’re trying to push the we’re so normal just like U narrative. Gimme a @:$#*%~ break.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Just like a normal family, like many others … why even say this? Royalty profits from centuries of pillage and imperialism and massacres and — we all know the deal. I just find that a weird and completely false thing to put out there. Many people are struggling actually to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads — compared to having a smaller wedding?!

    • Cdnkitty says:

      And cue scheduled baby in about 10 months – another look over here, instead of at the child rapist.

      • Tessa says:

        Maybe the York sisters will get pregnant at the same time with two adorable babies in 9 months.

    • NatureLover says:

      @Pricila, as soon as I read those words, my eyebrows grew closer as to the blatant BS statement by a family friend and I was utterly pissed and disgusted at the same time. No, this family is NOT like other families losing their jobs, family members and scraping by to pay either rent or food. The Firm lives off of the tax payers and I believe that given their decreased patronage’s and attended events, they are still increasing their pay by staggering numbers. TQ will be paid $100MIL this year, not sure the currency. As well as Charles, plus the Duchy pay as well. Their reasoning for the continued increase each year is that people flock to British territories, primarily Britain. Yet as the visits are decreasing, TQ and the rest of The Firm do not suffer financially.

      at least here in Drumpfsville, where we are facing the end of employment benefits that were increased to add $600USD each check.

  6. dsfskfsg says:

    Good for them. I still think things are going to end in tears for her but at least she can’t be dragged for how much the wedding cost the taxpayers.

    • Tessa says:

      That criticism only applies to meghan and harry. I see blogs where the two are slated for their “big wedding.”

      • bamaborn says:

        …and none of their weddings generated over a billion dollars to the local economy. Don’t know if Charles and Diana’s did. Believe it because I ordered things from here in the states as many others.

  7. Mia4s says:

    I’m cynical and yet impressed. Good for them. She’s not responsible for her father’s awfulness so I wish her well.

  8. Sarah says:

    Congrats to them! It’s our tenth wedding anniversary today so no snark from me – it’s a great day to get married 💚

    • Bettyrose says:

      Congratulations! 10 years is something to celebrate! 🎉🥂

    • Anna says:

      Congrats to you @Sarah! I saw the green heart and it reminded me how much I love Bea’s forest green sparkly dress! The ruffles, everything is so precious! Wonder if anyone knows the designer?

  9. Becks1 says:

    If the marriage was more important to them than the wedding, then this was the right move.

    I’m assuming that Bea was told “you are never going to be able to have the big wedding your sister had, or even the original planned wedding, so figure out a plan B.”

    The queen is going to Balmoral, huh? You would think it might be better for her to sit tight at Windsor for the rest of the summer.

    • anotherlily says:

      I have a feeling the Queen might abdicate in which case Charles will immediately be King, or at least stand down for Charles to be Regent. Either way it would be a much needed change.

      • Becks1 says:

        I don’t think she will abdicate, but I think Charles may take over as regent. I think that’s part of what H&M’s one year review is about. Around that point the Queen will be 95. And I feel there has been some speculation that at 95 she would step aside – nothing concrete obviously – but just enough vague gossip that it makes me think it’s being discussed.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I doubt she’ll abdicate either. She takes this rule until death thing seriously.

      • Tessa says:

        I doubt she will abdicate or name Charles as Regent. George IV then Prince of Wales took over as Regent when his father was incompetent mentally. The Queen is still sharp as a tack. I am not impressed with the way Charles handled things re: Meghan and Harry.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Tessa – I wasn’t impressed with that either, but I also wasn’t impressed with the Queen’s handling of the whole situation. It highlighted her pettiness and how out of touch she is.

      • Tealie says:

        The Queen will never abdicate, and i think she has said so, and i think she is too invested in the royal bullshit anyway

    • notasugarhere says:

      She wants to go to Balmoral for two months, she’ll go to Balmoral for two months. Just like she’ll still go to Sandringham for 2-3 months around Christmas. Doesn’t matter if everyone else is being told to stay in place, she’ll do what she’s always done. Someone (Telegraph, Guardian?) just had an article of how she’s planning to travel to Balmoral, how Philip will join her.

      • Zen says:

        Thats a hella-lotta vacation. Two months in summer and three months at Christmas? And she has been doing this for ages right? Not just as a senior citizen? So she basically works 6 months a year. Good gig.

      • Courtney B says:

        She still does her duties while she’s not in London. The red boxes, etc. I don’t know how long they take but she works on them every day of the year except Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.

      • PrincessK says:

        I think the Queen has worked hard, living in palaces and having servants creates work. Most people her age would have retired 30 years ago.

    • Tessa says:

      Charles apparently either wimped out or did not care. He has been known to being strongly opinionated and influential with the Queen when he wants to be.

    Congratulations to them! I can’t wait to see the dress! If past behavior is best predictor of future behavior, then we can expect it to not fit well and have some weird neckline and ugly design elements. Eugenie looked very pretty on her wedding day, so maybe that bridal glow will distract from any fashion disasters.

    • anonymous says:

      Just can’t get Meghan off your brain. She has moved on why can’t the critics. I suspect the lack of wedding pictures may be because the newlyweds have gone Hollywood and sold the photographs for a fee. The bride and groom deserve nothing other out best wishes. Hope they are extremely happy.

      • Mina_Esq says:

        Anonymous: huh? Who mentioned Meghan? I was talking about Bea’s history of fashion disasters. Christ, woman, let me gossip about fashion in peace :)

      • CuriousCole says:

        Anonymous- what the what??? Back off, Mina was referencing Beatrice’s well documented fashion misses. Where have you been? I’ve no idea why you went straight for Meghan.

    • Enny says:

      From the photos online, she looked GORGEOUS. The queen lent her a vintage dress from the 50s that they had tailored and the fit was perfect. She wore her hair down with the QUEEN MARY TIARA. She really looked great, and radiant, and happy.

  11. Ava4eva says:

    Sounds like the ideal wedding! Congrats to both of them.

  12. Maria says:

    Looking forward to all those stories on how poor Harry couldn’t come to the wedding because mean Meghan dragged him to LA and before that she stole Eugenie’s thunder by showing up pregnant at her wedding.

    • Becks1 says:

      I’m not getting the impression that any other royal were there besides the Yorks and the Queen and PP, which makes sense if they were determined to keep the guest list small and invited some close friends, but it strikes me as a bit odd if not even Charles attended. I wonder if Zara and mike went?

      • theothercleo says:

        Well,according to The Sun there was only 20 guests. And Edoardo have a family too. If both of their parents/grandparents/siblings (and their spouses) were there,it pretty much means no other royals were invited.
        I’m only guessing but I think Charles was quite relieved that he didn’t have to sit next to his pedophile brother or go to the wedding at all. He probably understands that it’s not good for him to be seen with Andrew right now.

      • notasugarhere says:

        If those family are in Italy, they weren’t traveling to the UK for a wedding. ‘Family’ in the UK for Edo might only be his son.

      • Mac says:

        Edo’s mother is British.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The money side of the family, including the titles and the crumbling family home, are in Italy. The father who was happy to speak to the press after the engagement announcement, but who says nothing about how his illegitimate grandson (via Edo) is cut off from inheriting.

      • Tessa says:

        Edo’s son with his ex will probably be treated like Prince Albert’s illegitimate children, though Albert might have provided for them and given them some inheritance.

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        Nota- That’s disgusting! Luckily Edo seems to be already in the process of amassing his own fortune, to distribute as he wishes. Unless that’s all family money he’s been playing with?

      • Guest says:

        Edo’s mother is British, she lives in the Cotswolds, which is where Bea & Edo have stayed during the lockdown. Edo’s stepfather – the father he actually acknowledges as a real dad – is British too. Edo has plenty of family members in Britain. I’m not sure why you’re under the impression his Italian father has a real fatherly role in his life. The main connection is when he dies Edo inherits the Italian villas and can do whatever he wants with them but that won’t be for many years. Beatrice has a new title now but that doesn’t mean they are going to be living in Italy full time. The “crumbling” pile you speak of is worth more than 30 million. So funny how broke people make fun of people with actual family wealth.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Ah, Guest, yet another new poster on here defending and embiggening Edo under an anon name. No surprise.

        Look past what some people think is *valuable* in those ‘estates’ and you see the truth. Crumbling, currently slated to undergo massive rehab but there’s no money to do it.

        The ‘title’ is one of hundreds running about the Continent that mean next to nothing. Being able to call herself a ‘noble woman’ in Italy is dozens of steps down from being an HRH, make no mistake. It isn’t like Caroline of Monaco marrying Ernst so she could add ‘royal’ to her title. Beatrice has gained nothing in this marriage, except being legally tied to a shady guy who saw an easy mark.

    • February-Pisces says:

      I agree and I’m just waiting to see how they are going to drag Meghan. It looks like they decided on no other family which is a good move because no one can complain that way. But they will still find a way to drag Meghan.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I spoke too soon, the fail are comparing how low key the wedding was compared to Meghans and eugenies , but mainly meghans .Also complaining about Meghan and Harry has a huge security bill. It’s funny cos Willie and Karen’s wedding was a hell of a lot bigger and they had to close a lot of roads in central London, but of course Meghans should have been the one who doesn’t deserve a wedding.

    • Hannah says:

      I genuinely dont think anyone expects anyone other than both sets of parents, The Queen & Prince Phillip, Eugenie & Jack, Edo’s son and maybe a few of their very closest personal friends. I’m happy for them. Her Father should be behind bars, but today, I’m just going to be happy for these 2

    • bettyrose says:

      It’s a 10 hour flight from LA to London. Harry could’ve made it there on one day’s notice, if we weren’t in the middle of a GLOBAL PANDEMIC. Surely that’s not Meghan’s fault?

      • Carolind says:

        Harry and Meghan small beer here. He is a cousin of Beatrice and since Eugenie’s wedding when Meghan apparently announced she was pregnant, the Yorks have been gunning for her. Don’t know if any of you know that the Queen also knighted a 100 year old Army veteran after Beatrice’s wedding. He raised £32,000,000 for charity. Beatrice has made much of the fact she would not release her wedding photos on Friday so as not to take attention away from him. If that wasn’t a dig at Meghan I don’t know what was. I couldn’t care less that any of Charles’s offspring and wives were not at this wedding. I am more interested in the fact that none of Andrew’s siblings were there either.

      • Tealie says:

        Where there is a Will there’s a way, the press will still completely ignore that and write 500 non stories about it 🙄

    • duchesschicana says:

      Shocker, its Eugenie who will steall the thunder. Honestly, if these royals waited till everybody in their gives theirr announcement nothing would be announced

  13. lily says:

    we might get the pictures today via the royal social media. but the likelihood is the pictures will be released on saturday night, just in time for the sunday papers. also: isn’t it camilla’s birthday today? lol

    • Ginger says:

      It is. I’m surprised there aren’t articles saying how she is overshadowing her birthday. Those are only reserved for Meghan.

      I know there will be articles on how Harry is so “sad and disappointed” he couldn’t be there and how Meghan is holding him hostage in LA.

      • Osty says:

        @ginger, that’s because majority of pple dont care about the other royals no matter how much their sycophants try to tell us otherwise. Meghan overshadow them cos she is that popular

      • BayTampaBay says:

        “It is. I’m surprised there aren’t articles saying how she is overshadowing her birthday.”

        I have a hunch that Camilla could not care less.

        Tatler Online did an excellent article with some awesome pictures on Camilla for her birthday.

    • Becks1 says:

      Omid just tweeted that they will release a picture tomorrow because they didn’t want to overshadow Cpt tom moore’s investiture today at Windsor.

      Does the british media think that people cant walk and chew gum at the same time? Many of us are capable of looking at a picture of happy newlyweds and pictures of an investiture on the same day.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Will William be there to take credit for Cpt Tom’s fundraising, just like he tried to do months ago? Cannot have Eugenie stepping on Petulant William’s PR cycle.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        What about Beatrice stepping on Petulant William’s PR cycle?

      • notasugarhere says:

        Oh, lord, BTB, now I’m mixing them up too!

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @nota – We have the same posting disease. I always mix up the York Princesses when typing.

      • Lady D says:

        “I always mix up the York princesses” I believe it’s a family curse, ’cause millions of us are like you:)

      • February-Pisces says:

        @nota if there is any credit to be handed out, then William will be there to take it.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Isn’t it strange how camilla never went to Eugenies wedding, I just think it was odd that she had a ‘prior engagement’ when their calendars are organised months in advance, and it could have easily be moved. It’s weird that no one seemed to comment on why she wasn’t there.

      • Becks1 says:

        And wasn’t she in Scotland at the time? I thought that was where the engagement was. That was kind of weird to me at the time, because while their visits to Scotland and Wales are planned well in advance, Eugenie’s wedding date was announced BEFORE H&M’s wedding, right? So there was at least 6 months to reschedule or plan around her wedding.

        Honestly I doubt it had anything to do with Eugenie personally but probably had something to do with her father.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Yes, Aberdeenshire.

        12 October 2018
        The Duchess of Rothesay this morning visited Crathie Primary School and was received by the Reverend Kenneth MacKenzie (Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire). Her Royal Highness afterwards visited Braemar Visitor Centre and was received by the Hon. Mrs. Katherine Nicolson (Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire).

        11 October 2018
        The Duchess of Rothesay this morning visited Alford Academy, Alford, to celebrate the Harvest Festival and was received by Mrs. Miranda McHardy (Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire).

        The event on the 12th could have been moved, but the Harvest Festival date probably couldn’t. Either she attended that day (11th) or she couldn’t attend until the next year.

        I doubt anybody cared she wasn’t at the wedding. If Charles had needed/wanted her at the wedding, she’d have been there.

      • Bavarian says:

        I have never seen pics of Camilla and Andrew besides of the official ones. Maybe she cant stand him and thats the reason she is never around for his daughters weddings?

      • Tessa says:

        If Meghan had not shown up, it would have been a different matter. All the trashing.

    • Tessa says:

      although the media claimed that Camilla was “upset” over Meghan giving a speech the same day she made an appearance. There are different rules applied to Meghan.

  14. Thirtynine says:

    Congratulations to Bea and Edo, and I wish them every happiness for their new life together. I’m really glad for them.

  15. starryfish29 says:

    Well, she was nothing if not determined to make it happen, so good on them! It was probably also a good idea to squeeze it in before Andrew (hopefully) goes to jail.

    • Severine says:

      Agree – she had to get married before her dad was convicted and sent to prison.

    • Tealie says:

      i agree i don’t really care for the wedding, however i am glad because it looks like a sign that Andrew will soon be extradicted/jailed or questioned

  16. Harper says:

    This is very wonderful news. I’m happy for Bea, and even though she probably always dreamed of having the big to-do for her wedding, I imagine the smaller affair felt very meaningful. Especially having the Queen and the Phillip there. Did Kate attend and wear off-white?

  17. TheOriginalMia says:

    Congratulations! I think this was the best move for them. Wishing them many years of happiness.

  18. Solidgolddancer says:

    Congrats to the happy couple.

    Sounds like a great way to do it; intimate ceremony, bigger reception to celebrate with everyone.

  19. Osty says:

    I wish them a very happy life

  20. WilliamJoelene says:

    I can’t wait to see the pics either! But I fear it’s a Caroline/Phillipe Junot situation. I sincerely hope I’m wrong :(

    Maybe Daddy is about to be extradited?

  21. MsDiMeanOur says:

    Well done to them!
    Wishing them the best for breaking away from spending the taxpayer’s dough on their functions! A breath of fresh air in the midst of this crazy pandemic

  22. Prairiegirl says:

    Where was the reception? Pizza Express in Woking?

  23. Maevo says:

    Whoa I can’t believe they went through with it…well I hope they’ll be happy. But can we please stop with every story having to say “they are just like a normal family” 🙄

  24. MsDiMeanOur says:

    I just HAD to pop over to the Daily Fail to read the British comments on this… Anyone else surprised that all the comments turned to hate about MM and H?

    What is even wrong with the British people?

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Most comments at the Daily Fail are posted by paid AstroTurf Trolls.

    • Tessa says:

      There are such hate ridden comments about Meghan and Harry and it sounds like they are all reading from a script with the same jargon (narcissist is tossed around a lot and crude comments about Harry being “bossed around” by his wife).The Astro Turf Trolls infest everything now.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Tessa – You left out body shaming, plastic surgery and making rude comments about her teeth.

    • Pearl Grey says:

      Zero surprise. I recall Beatrice’s engagement announcement article in the Daily Malice had over 5,000 comments (at the time when I saw it) and the vast, VAST majority from the top rated comments all the way down were all about Meghan and how they couldn’t wait for Beatrice to “get revenge” on her for “upstaging Eugenie’s wedding”, how happy they were that the engagement news “knocked a Meghan story off the top page”, how “furious” Meghan must be (because we all know how much Meghan craves being covered by that paper(!) and that she will try to get pregnant again in time for Beatrice’s wedding to “steal the attention back”. All of which never happened. How sad that they can’t even pretend to be interested in the blood Princess bride and her day without derailing with their rabid ravings about a “minor, irrelevant actress” who wasn’t even there let alone in the country. I suspect if and when Beatrice gets pregnant, they will make it all about Meghan again. It’s a sickness.

    • Argus says:

      More than a lion’s share of comments on the Daily Mail are from overly invested Americans. Stop blaming the British people who mostly don’t give two figs about the royals.

    • Carolind says:

      Andrew lives near the Queen at Windsor and at one time he and daughters used to have drinks with her before Sunday lunch. They are also at Balmoral quite a lot. She is also a blood grand-daughter and the Queen does seem fond of her grandchildren.

  25. S808 says:

    Good, at this point a big wedding just wasn’t gonna fly. Congrats to them and I wish them luck.

  26. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Well… I didn’t see this coming. I still get a bad vibe from these two but I genuinely hope they’re happy together.

  27. bluemoonhorse says:

    Maybe I’m not being cynical enough but I think Bea and Edo just wanted to be married. Since this was probably arranged months ago I doubt it has anything to do with the timing of GM.

    JMO but this is how all future royal marriages should be (except maybe the heir). Cut all the pomp and stop spending taxpayer money to fuel your ‘dream wedding’ for ‘normal’ royal rich 1% ers.

    I wish the couple well. I hope Bea and Edo go to Italy and get out away from her parents.

    • notasugarhere says:

      It is unlikely it was arranged ‘months ago’ because the rules about weddings in the UK were just relaxed last week or the week before. Until then, you weren’t allowed to have more than a handful of people at a wedding. Now you’re allowed up to 30.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        Okay but you can’t tell me she didn’t have a plan B or that the Queen/Royals knew at least 30 days ago when those plans were going into effect. It is easy to know when you are the ones setting the rules.

        I don’t think everything has to be a conspiracy. I think these two wanted to get married and as soon as they could get a simple plan in place they did it.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I don’t think scurrying off and marrying privately was ever the plan on the books. First it was intended to be a massive wedding like Eugenie’s, but the public pushed back. Then it was intended to be a ‘see how much we’re like Victoria and Albert’ show at Buckingham Palace. Again, public pushback plus pandemic.

        This quickie affair? All about Maxwell being arrested, trying to take focus off Andrew.

      • TheOriginalMia says:

        Well, they were supposed to marry in March. She had the dress already. Not much needed to be done other than planning a wedding luncheon. This wedding is probably more in line with Bea’s wishes than the monstrosity her tone deaf parents probably had planned.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I saw the March event as Fergie plotting it out as a Victoria and Albert thing. Marrying where they married, who knows if they’d do a similar menu. All because of Fergie’s obsession with V&A.

      • dsfskfsg says:

        Doesn’t really prove anything. They could have planned a small wedding for today with just 10 people then invited more people as restrictions eased.

      • Tessa says:

        Bea probably had the dress all ready and the rings were ready. So they could go into action quickly especially after Ghislaine’s arrest.

    • Tessa says:

      I think Bea and Edo were holding out for the big wedding. If they wanted a small wedding it would have happened months ago. I think it has a lot to do with Ghislaine’s arrest.

      • Becks1 says:

        I agree with you. And, if this had been planned even two weeks ago, I feel like it would have been announced. The secrecy is what throws me and makes me think this has to do with Ghislaine. (or maybe it was secret because they didn’t want protestors?)

      • notasugarhere says:

        Agreed. This decision wasn’t made in a vacuum. It was made because of increased heat on Andrew because of Maxwell’s arrest.

  28. ABritGuest says:

    Good move. Absolutely no way she would get a big wedding like Eugenie in this climate& with Andrew in a high profile role.

    Best wishes to the newlyweds. I think photos will be released tonight. Look forward to seeing her dress. Think we will be pleasantly surprised

    • ex-Mel says:

      It was the best surprise: the Queen’s own dress from a 1962 gala.
      Beatrice looked lovely – and very happy – in it.

  29. aquarius64 says:

    Well they did it. But I still think Andrew’s mess was a factor in the ceremony. A standard royal wedding would have invited running commentary about Maxwell and bad optics with COVID. Congrats to the two.

    • Nic919 says:

      It’s no coincidence this happened shortly after Ghislaine Maxwell got arrested. Things aren’t going to get better for Andy and it would overshadow any sort of larger more public wedding.

  30. Lily says:

    This is very sad for Beatrice. I dont think this has anything to do with covid19 and social distancing. I don’t think this was prepared to divert us from Andrew. I see this as an emergency wedding after Maxwell’s arrest, Andrew not knowing what will happen in the future, most possibly things escalating fast uncontrollably, not being able to get out of the country for an italian wedding, so Beatrice just wanted to have the wedding asap so her father could attend, walk her down the isle, spend a night before the wedding with her family, and do everything that is meaningful for a family before a wedding. At this point I don’t think she cares about the wedding being big and flashy, how this is going to be in the media, the pictures etc although that’s what she would probably would have hoped for originally. This is a “let’s be together one last time before the shit goes down and we can never be all together anymore.” But congratulations to the married couple. I really hope they are happy.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Legally, she wasn’t allowed to have a large wedding at this time. The UK rules around weddings during COVID-19 were strict until a week or two ago. Even now, you have to follow guidelines and have fewer than 30 people.

    • Undine Spragg's Vanity says:

      I agree, Lily. Beatrice deserves her moment as a happy bride, like all women do, without aspersions being thrown at her about the timing and her motivations wrt to her horrible family. Meghan doesn’t get raked over the coals here about her low life Dad and neither should Bea. No one is their father and shouldn’t be held responsible for the crimes of scum fathers, especially on their wedding day.

      • notasugarhere says:

        No one ‘deserves’ a wedding day free of controversy when she has spent years being part of her father’s PR parade. Just a few months ago they were feeding us the PR line about how she was planning to have a huge wedding in the UK in 2021 – for public morale.

        The timing of this small wedding today is highly suspect.

      • Nic919 says:

        Tom Markle is many things but he is not a rapist of underaged girls so maybe we can stop pretending that Andy is anything but a despicable rapist getting away with massive crimes and hiding under the protection of his mother. And his victims have had their lives altered forever so pardon me if I can’t scrounge up pity that people might be saying mean things about Beatrice’s rapist dad.

      • Undine Spragg's Vanity says:

        @Nic919 No one is giving Andrew a pass on any of his crimes, he is abhorrent. So why are you insinuating that I am trying to pretend Andrew is excusable? Both of them are vile men and yet fortunately their daughters turned out to be functional adults who go onwards and upwards in their personal lives. In that spirit, I was only saying let a young woman celebrate her wedding day without dragging her awful father into it. Say awful things about her father to your heart’s content, but she is not him and doesn’t deserve to be accused of staging a wedding to be complicit in his crimes. Please gain some perspective & balance.

      • Undine Spragg's Vanity says:

        @Nic919 Also, you would rather defend the certifiably awful Thomas Markle than casually read a comment about someone wishing Beatrice a happy wedding day and move on. Nice.

      • Nic919 says:

        Comparing Tom Markle, bad parent, to Andrew, criminal sex trafficker is despicable and racist because let’s be honest the comparison is only being made because of his biracial daughter. Perhaps stop making utterly insane comparisons because there is nothing close to what Tom Markle has done that compares to the lives utterly ruined by Andrew. He raped underaged girls and yet you dare say that he’s just a “bad parent” like Tom Markle? It is you who should get a hell of a lot more perspective because Beatrice managed to live her life utterly unaffected as compared to the young women who have had to piece their lives together and will be unlikely to see their rapist brought to justice. Beatrice has lived a life of luxury and without any consequences and does not deserve anything. She got the wedding anyway. It may not have been exactly what she wanted but she is not a rape victim. Her disappointment at not having the wedding of her dreams is far less serious of an issue to deal with than deal with the aftermath of being a sex slave. Sorry if I don’t kiss the ass of privileged royalty who literally do not give a shit about anonymous internet wishes.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Agreed Nic919. Both Beatrice and Eugenie are grown women who make their own choices. They choose to stand by their father, a rapist, rather than accepting the truth of what he’s done. I don’t see why her wedding *shouldn’t* be negatively impacted by her ongoing support for a man who used her as an alibi when cozying up to sex traffickers and victims.

  31. February-Pisces says:

    Congratulations to Beatrice and edo, I wish them all the best!

    Just been looking at comments and there is a lot of talk about it being a small secret wedding obviously, mostly taking shots at harry and meghans wedding. But people seem to forget that everyone’s plans in 2020 have been screwed up. Not to mention all the business with her father. I’m sure she would have loved a huge wedding with lots of people similar to her sisters, but she must clearly be happy to do it secretly instead of waiting. Anyway congratulations 🥳

    • notasugarhere says:

      wrong place

    • Bucketbot says:

      Good for them.
      But of course, this quiet wedding is because of firstly, her pedophile father’s embarrassing shenanigans and secondly, the pandemic. I think people should be mentioning it more often. There’s absolutely no reason to be polite especially when Harry and Meghan were never afforded that decency and peace even on their wedding day. They had to have a small wedding compulsorily. They would never get away with a bigger wedding in this situation. Never.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Well I’ve seen trolls on twitter using it as a reason to bash Meghan. It’s funny they will say how wonderful it is that bea saved the public’s tax money and how much harry and Meghan spent of security for their wedding. Yet those are the same people who were mad for harry and Meghan keeping archies christening small, and her giving birth in private.

      Bea would have absolutely had a huge wedding if it wasn’t for her dad, and the pandemic. It’s sad that she didn’t atleast get the same wedding as Eugenie. I think it’s happened now as a diversion regarding Andrew.

  32. Harper says:

    I’m wondering how the Sun is claiming an exclusive on the news of the wedding? Did Willileaks know he was obligated to tell them or else? Those photos of the Queen and Philip are credited to a Sun photographer, but all the news reports are that the wedding was secret. Makes one wonder.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Dan wootton is getting dragged to hell on twitter cos he’s written another trash article on meghans ‘woke’ speech. Maybe Willie did an exchange, gave him the heads up on Beas wedding, in exchange for more Meghan bashing.

      • Ginger says:

        And he said he wasn’t going to write about Harry and Meghan anymore. That didn’t last long.

  33. Lisa says:

    Congrats to them. Sounds like a perfect wedding.

  34. Digital Unicorn says:

    Congrats to them – can’t wait to see the photos.

    You just KNOW Andrew and Fergie are spitting nails at not having the very big public wedding where they can swan around showing off.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I expect a huge public three-day destination wedding party later in Italy.

    • Harper says:

      Fergie will drag this out for the next two weeks posting behind the scenes, during the scene, after the scene wedding photos with lots of emojis on her Instagram. Woe to Meghan if she is pregnant and her secret gets revealed during the next week.

  35. Case says:

    Good for them. The marriage itself is more important than the wedding, and they can have a big celebration once we’re passed all this. Congrats to them!

  36. Murphy says:

    This was the way to go, can’t wait to see some pictures tomorrow.

  37. Liz version 700 says:

    Congrats to the happy couple. This wedding seems very fitting for the times we are in right now.

  38. Maria says:

    Maybe she wanted to marry before Phillip and the Queen die, and before her father is arrested.

    • notasugarhere says:

      They’ve been engaged since September. Could have married at Christmas at Sandringham and had the whole family with them. Chose not to. They chose to get married now, days after Andrew’s fellow felon Maxwell was arrested.

      • Lanie says:

        That wouldn’t be surprising. Weddings and engagements are great distractions.

        We got Incandescent and Dolittle’s engagement announcement in the kids of economic turmoil and protests in London. Remember that photo of Charles and Camilla’s car surrounded by protesters? Clarence House announced the engagement shortly after that.

      • Tessa says:

        I remember Charles had a TV special about the environment the night before the next morning’s engagement announcement of Will and Kate. I doubt he was thrilled he did make a rather snide comment “Well they’ve been practicing long enough.”

      • notasugarhere says:

        None of them knew the engagement was coming, as William called the press and scheduled the press photos *before* even informing the Queen.

      • Ginger says:

        @Nota. That’s insane that he did that. Wouldn’t Will have to get the Queens permission to get engaged? Was he afraid she would say no?

      • notasugarhere says:

        William has always delighted in causing trouble. Surprising the royals with that engagement announcement? I’m sure petty bitch William loved causing trouble like that.

    I hope the happiness in her marriage makes up for the big wedding celebration she couldn’t have right now and her annoying parents. I wish them well.

    Good Luck,
    That’s all I got.

  42. MsIam says:

    I’m guessing that if Maxwell lives and goes to trial, there will be even more embarrassing revelations, possibly involving Andrew. Better to have the wedding now before the storm begins. Congrats to them both!

    • Lady D says:

      What are they going to use for a distraction when the trial starts? Is that where the Cambridges get thrown under a bus for the Queen’s favourite?

      • rawiya says:

        A baby, probably (either soon-to-be born, or maybe already born and christening excitement.)

  43. notasugarhere says:

    @Becks1 per our discussion about the CC yesterday.

    It wasn’t that Meghan’s engagements weren’t being reported to the CC, that the majority of her meetings and work wasn’t being counted in there. It was that *The courtiers didn’t even have her listed in the dropdown list of royals included in the CC* for most of 2018. Prince Michael of Kent was there, and he isn’t technically a working royal, but they didn’t even include HRH Duchess of Sussex on the damn list for months after the wedding.

    • Becks1 says:

      Interesting! I didn’t realize she wasn’t even listed for that long. I wonder what the rationale was? To hide her actual work? Was there hope that she wouldn’t be around long so it wasn’t necessary to add her?

      • Mignionette says:

        I’m guessing it was done to frustrate her. An act of defiance to the “5 am emails” to make her ‘know her place’.

  44. S808 says:

    I find it interesting that Bea got to marry in secret and doesn’t have to release her wedding photos immediately with no pushback or RRs foaming at the mouth but all hell broke lose because the Sussexes wanted a private christening for their child and to protect the identify of their Archie’s godparents.

    • ohrhilly says:

      +1
      It wasn’t long ago that Bea was lambasted for not working and getting security. Now it’s poor Bea. I bet you Fergie and Andy will spill something about this wedding soon.

    • Mignionette says:

      And when you consider the reasons for that private ceremony i.e. Daddy being a Paedo wanted for questioning – it’s just RIDICULOUS…..

  45. AGreatDane says:

    They love an ugly shiny green dress in that family, don’t they? Let’s keep the green láme on the set of POSE, ummkay?

    And congratulations on getting married.

  46. Jay says:

    Here’s hoping Beatrice will look back on this in twenty years and be grateful she didn’t subject herself to all the stress and competition inherent in a royal spectacle wedding. I never got the sense that she wanted that, anyway.

    I’m sure her parents will milk this for all it’s worth (and be snippy with anyone asking awkward questions about Ghislaine Maxwell – they are so focused on their family happiness, for shame!).

  47. Mariane says:

    I’m suprised Edo went through with it!!! Not to be harsh,but you dont get loving vibe when you look at then together. I think they are best friends who just have an arrangement of sorts or as he’s been her friend for years, he’s doing this to protect her.Either way, I truly wish them well. She deserves happiness as everyone does so congratulations.
    I look forward to seeing the photos that omid said will be released tomorrow.
    Andy must be overjoyed with the distraction! He got to walk her whilst keeping his dignity and not being blacklisted for his pedophilia scandal.

    • Tessa says:

      He was in a relationship and his girlfriend had his baby not that long before he started dating Bea. I see some red flags.

    • Tealie says:

      Edo is in it for the money. I’m suprised he didn’t try to hook her in earlier! He was engaged to another woman who he has a child with and had been with for years before he started going out with Bea (it is likely he was cheating since he broke up with the fiance and started dating Bea within months of eachother). She seems a bit naive with this one seeing she was with another man whom she wanted to marry for 10 years (that only ended a few months before she ‘met’ edo. Idon’t think this marrige is going to last too long.

      • A says:

        What money though? It’s not like Bea is rolling in the cash. Fergie is forever strapped for dough, and Andrew is likely going to have the royal tap turned off at some point soon, depending on how the Ghislaine stuff goes or whenever Charles ascends to the throne.

        I’m sure he and Fergie do have plenty of assets squirreled away somewhere, and even if the royal family “”officially”" stop funding him in the future, he won’t be in penury. But I doubt very much of it is liquid or that Beatrice and Eugenie have access to any of it, or will have access to it in the future. So if Edo is in this for the money, he’s SOL.

      • Nic919 says:

        The royal connection will be profitable and there will be an inheritance from the Queen and Philip when they pass.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I don’t think it’s ‘money’ as such, but he’s there for the ‘connections’. The York’s seem to be the ones always looking for a cash cow, whilst the people who associate with them love having links to royalty. No doubt the connections that he will make will be profitable in the long run.

      • Guest says:

        Beatrice and Eugenie had a multi million pound trust set up by the queen after Andrew and Fergie got divorced. That is their money and their money only. They live the same life as any other wealthy girls live in Britain. Lol they aren’t penniless and poor and never will be. Jack Brooksbank has family money, Edo has his own money plus family money so they are all good. Worry about yourself darlings not people who buy multi thousand pound earrings every other week.

      • Becks1 says:

        I love when Guest shows up to instruct us peons in the ways of the wealthy, lol.

      • Peony_Wise says:

        Quoting @FebruaryPisces:
        “I don’t think it’s ‘money’ as such, but he’s there for the ‘connections’. The York’s seem to be the ones always looking for a cash cow, whilst the people who associate with them love having links to royalty. No doubt the connections that he will make will be profitable in the long run.”

        Not true. Edo has is own career wealth, plus family wealth and an Italian title he doesn’t use. His family has been ‘connected’ for years, which is how Bea and Edo already knew each other for a long time. Bea is 6 years younger than Edo, and she was stuck in an ill-advised former relationship for 10 years. So Bea & Edo came together romantically when happenstance dictated. Though the timing has been otherwise unfortunate for them in other respects.

        I’m with @Guest re the OTT negative projecting by some posters. Our views whether negative, positive, or neutral don’t matter. So opine and speculate away, but at least try to base your opinions on facts.

      • Tessa says:

        I posted something on the wrong thread below: I think Edo would be expected to care for his child, otherwise he would be hauled into court for child support. Bea was never “stuck” in that relationship, she just stayed and stayed for years and it was probably apparent that he did not want to marry her–she should have walked away from Dave Clark.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Yes, Becks1. Interesting a brand new name and ‘Guest’ are vehemently defending Edo on here.

        Bea’s net worth is less than 5 million, some of which may have been siphoned off by her mother. A million or two from the Queen Mum, a million or two from the Queen at the time of her parents divorce. And Bea spends nearly as liberally as her mother.

        Edo’s connections, wealth, and title are just as shady as the Middletons. The Italian villa rented out for weddings, the larger one crumbling, slated for massive repairs, but no money to be found for those repairs. Enter convenient marriage to high-profile woman with shady father who is known for profiteering off his position and socking away shady millions.

        Her picker is broken, we’ve seen that for 15 years now. He moved in, ‘family friend’, and they’re engaged in months. He’s in it for the connections, she was in it to get married before her grandparents pass. I don’t see this lasting any longer than Missy Percy’s marriage, or past Bea’s grandparents passing away.

        Guest and Peony, if you keep personally attacking and mocking posters instead of sticking to the discussion? Posters will labeled you as trolls and you’ll be removed.

      • February-Pisces says:

        @peony_wise edo is an ambitious man, nothing wrong with that, but building a well connected network is clearly something that is important to him considering he is already well connected like you said. Now the difference is everyone knows who he is because of his marriage to Bea elevating his status making it so much easier for him to get through the door. The York’s are not as nearly as cash rich as people think and have been mooching off their much richer friends for years, so It would make sense for edo to have ‘money’.

      • A says:

        @nic919, okay, but that’s the thing. There’s really nothing that Bea offers, in terms of money, aristocratic veneer, or connections, that makes her a standout at all. Beatrice has money, but she doesn’t have “real” money as the wealthy would say. She’s not exactly out here with the sort of money that the Richard Bransons and Santo Domingos of the world are privy to, for example. The Yorks are existing on the largess of the Queen and the Crown. Once the Queen is gone, who’s footing their bill? No trust fund in the world can make up for having someone around to give you a blank check, no questions asked.

        Edo is an aristocrat with an aristocratic background, so he’s hardly an outsider who desperately needs the veneer of gentility that someone like Beatrice could provide for him. He’s not Kate Middleton, who’s still getting shut out by the aristos on account of his background.

        As for connections, what connections does Bea have exactly? All of the connections she’s supposed to have are in fact connections that her parents have. And none of them are worth anything anymore, considering how the York name and brand is pretty much mud on account of Epstein. No one wants to associate with Andrew because no one wants to be implicated. If Edo wants connections with the unsavoury sorts that Andrew and Fergie are friendly with, he could find a girl who’s much more connected, and even better, doesn’t have the spotlight and scrutiny that Beatrice is facing at the moment.

        There are much more well-connected, well-heeled aristocratic women, with a great deal more wealth than Beatrice will ever see in her life. They even have the added benefit of not being in the public eye all the time. If this is what Edo is interested in, he definitely has other, better, options than Beatrice. So why her?

        I’m not bringing this up to knock on the relationship, I swear. I think that Beatrice and Edo are pretty evenly matched, in terms of wealth and standing. I don’t think he’s really all that nice, but he’s not all that awful, and Beatrice herself is certainly no starry-eyed ingenue who’s getting taken advantage of because she was swept away by a penniless conman who just wants her for the wealth. Neither of these two are marrying up in any real way here, so the idea that Edo is simply in it for the money and fame and connections just doesn’t seem all that accurate to me.

    Good for them, but come on. They are NOT like a normal family and they do NOT make sacrifices like the rest of us. They just don’t.

  50. L4frimaire says:

    Surprised they actually did it, but the issue with Andrew isn’t going away , so this was probably the best way. Keep it low key, and they don’t owe anyone an explanation. Wishing them all the best.

  51. Jumpingthesnark says:

    The nice side of me thinks congratulations. The snarky side of me thinks: The Mozz!!! Now “Duke of Earl Mozz”, I guess, or will be soon.

    • duchesschicana says:

      He doesnt affiliate with his title or bio dad

      • Guest says:

        Yes! This is correct. He doesn’t have close ties with his Italian paternal family. He has no obligation to turn the Italian villas into brand new facelifts. His whole family is based in Britain. Why is the Italian side even brought up by commenters with no factual knowledge of the situation? Strange people commenting on complete strangers lives. He’s a millionaire british property developer and there are tons in London. I don’t see anything ‘shady’ about that. Just the usual jealous people diving into other people’s financials like they have millions sitting in the bank themselves. 😂

      • Becks1 says:

        And yet, you are here, commenting on people’s lives AND insulting people you don’t even know.

  52. yinyang says:

    See…now, was that so hard??

    • yinyang says:

      Close knit only but didn’t invite you know whos…don’t blame them all that drama would’ve been a headache.

      • Guest says:

        With 20 or so close family members from both sides – Edo has a mother & step dad & they have family too – there would be no room for the Cambridges.

    • Harper says:

      No room for the Cambridges was most likely a silver lining for Beatrice as it does not appear there is any love lost between her and Kate. It did deprive Kate of the opportunity to show up to Bea’s wedding in a silly hat and get revenge for the “thing” Bea wore on her head to Kate and Will’s nuptials. I will always contend that Bea picked that hat as a show of disrespect to Kate.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Beatrice didn’t pick the hat. She trusted the long-time royal milliner to make a hat to go with the lattice work on the coat she wore to the wedding. The dress underneath was the best part of the outfit, but it couldn’t be seen under that coat. We did get to see it when she wore it again to Prince Amedeo’s wedding.

      • Tealie says:

        apparently Kate has always been a big bitch and not gotten along with the York sisters, so that wouldn’t shock me.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I wonder how much the Cambridge’s knew about this? Willie must have known something seeing as he tipped off his buddies at The Scum. I’m surprised he didn’t demand an invite, just so everyone could heap the Keenbridges with praise and as a way to stick it to harry and Meghan.

  53. paddingtonjr says:

    Congrats and good luck. I would like to see her dress (and which tiara she wears if any). Glad we were not yet subjected to Fergie grinning and high-fiving like an idiot.

  54. emu says:

    Good for them. This is much better for them publicity-wise. Seems much more romantic.

  55. The Recluse says:

    Smart move. They got on with it. Now, if they’re smart, they’ll move away from her parents and keep them at a sensible distance.

  56. duchesschicana says:

    Congrats Princess Beatrice,
    I dont agree with others that they were holding out for a big wedding. Logically, I think it was going to be private and small, but people preferred to listen to tabloid talk for some reason. There was no engagement interview or wedding merchandise as of yet. St James’s place only holds 150 guests or that they trying to distract from her dad. She just wants to marry with her grandparents in attendance not everything is a conspiracy. I just think they may possibly be in love, shocker .

    • Tessa says:

      It takes two to bring a baby into the world. Edo and Dara both brought this baby into being. I don’t see anything “heroic” about his wanting to support the child and be a father. He’d have been hauled into court if he gave no support to his child. Bea does have money and the prestige of being the Queen’s granddaughter and Bea is an HRH . If Edo knew Dara wanted marriage and he did not, he could have told her he did not want to marry her. He could have used birth control if he was sleeping with her or just moved on if he knew he did not want anything permanent.

      • duchesschicana says:

        I didnt talk about his child at all. I was congratulating the couple and talking about the wedding. This is modern times people will have children out of wedlock and dont don’t stay together, doesnt make them horrible or mean that they dont deserve to find love again and have a bigger family. Edo an ex do take care of ther child, as long as the child is happy and taken care of I dont see why we should judge him by having a child with an ex things happen especially when you are older and date. Edo and ex were in love at one point and people fall out in love it happens, especially when one partner travels a lot and is often away from home

      • notasugarhere says:

        When not marrying his child’s mother means the child doesn’t inherit titles or property? What a convenient ‘modern’ way to ensure his biracial child is discounted.

      • Tessa says:

        I’m sorry, this is an error by me. I clicked on the post twice. It is in the right place now on the right thread. The second time for some reason the post ended up on this thread. Sorry.

      • duchesschicana says:

        @notasugarhere He doesnt affiliate with his title or bio dad I dont see why that would matter in this case and dont you dare bring racism into this thats low. AS any parent with multiple future children would he will put in his will that all his children would get an equal piece of the pie or not could be wrong.

    Yes to everything Nic19

  58. lili says:

    I’m happy for Bea. She did what we suggested. It’s bittersweet because it could have been the last time she could celebrate with her father. He might be a monster but she might still love him and she didn’t choose her father. She didn’t release the pics yet. It seems so secretive that I feel a bit bad for her. Her father overshadows her wedding. Happy that it was low key.
    As for Edo, we know gossip not the whole true and to be honest I feel like he might really love her, he’s rich and with “right” pedigree on his own and by marrying Bea he also linked himself to Andrew and the whole scandal. If he cared about fame, social status he’d run.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Or he’s sat back and watched as the Queen has illegally protected Andrew from legal proceedings, and bailed Andrew and Fergie out financially. He’s seen that if he gets in with the daughter of the Queen’s fav son, he could expect similar treatment for himself.

    • duchesschicana says:

      @lili Agreed with you the couple just may love eachother, shocker. We never even heard the man speak yet some people are saying he is shady based on gossip. The things we know about Edo is only what the tabloids want us to know and they are in it for clicks and money. Which is ironic because when it comes to royals and royalist some would say, even some commetors from here, not to believe what the tabloids write about royals, yet choose to believe the tabloids in this case

      • lili says:

        Exactly, even notasugarhere (sorry) above has a conspiracy theory which is a “bit” OTT. He is with Bea because possibly if he did something illegal maybe the queen (who unfortunately would be dead by then) would help him out?
        We really don’t know Edo, and I won’t judge him by the way his smile photographs. His ex was gorgeous so he can’t love Bea? Projecting much?

  59. P89LT says:

    It was just an arraignment for Maxwell. Trust me there will be much bigger things to come where Prince Andrew will hope another story can sideline his “friendship” story with her. I don’t feel like it was planned.

    I’m not into blaming the child for the parent either. I think Beatrice just came to the conclusion a lot of people have had to lately. She’d have to wait a long time to have a big wedding. (She has the added problem of maybe her Dad could be arrested too by then) She decided to have a small wedding. The chapel is adorable, but I laughed so hard at the Daily Mail who had pictures of it at a funeral on their website about this story. Sure I wanted to see the inside, but not like that. Leave it to the Daily Mail to screw up this sweet little story. I do wonder if we will get some pictures of the event or at least Beatrice.

    • lili says:

      yeah, DM can ruin everything. Bea became smart and did what we knew. Just like some people get married now wearing face masks – not perfect for pictures but it’s a choice you make.

    • duchesschicana says:

      Not to mention she is wearing the Queen’s wedding tiara a clear signale she is one of her favorites

    • Eugh says:

      I really like the arch of flowers and the colors. Her dress is quite nice too (for me until you get the the super thick hem). And she got the fringe tiara…a really big deal!

  65. Laura says:

    Not only recycled dress, but one of the Queens vintage gowns… And her tiara was the Queens own wedding tiara.
    Might have been a small wedding but the Queens fondness for and closeness to her Grandaughter was very evident.
    Very public display of support and love seldom seen from her reticent Majesty.

    • P89LT says:

      The dress appears to be a dress the Queen wore to a Lawrence of Arabia premier. It’s just altered and cap sleeves added. Her tiara is the one the Queen wore at her wedding. With all of that and the smile on the Queens’ face, I say Bea might just win the prize for favorite grandchild. Although, I’m sure she loves them all the same. This looked to be a beautiful wedding. Good luck to them both.

    • Original Penguin says:

      Support for Beatrice is obvious but the absence of Andy is also very obvious.
