Shout it from the rooftops — another royal wedding is in the works! I’m squealing with joy over the news of Princess Beatrice’s engagement to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The Duke of York announced the news in a statement on Sept. 26, along with a dazzling set of photos of the couple (and that gorgeous ring). Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's relationship timeline proves their love story is the stuff of fairytales, and I’ll be crying about it until approximately the end of time. NBD.
Beatrice and Edoardo shared their own thoughts in the statement, saying, “We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to be married … We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.” Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie took the engagement photos, and she posted a message of congratulations to the couple on Instagram, writing, “It's been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.”
Just how long has this engagement been in the works? Here’s your deep dive into the details.
