Queen of England’s granddaughter Weds secretly

The Queen of England’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice has secretly gotten married today

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.

The Queen’s granddaughter and millionaire property developer Edo were due to get hitched at the Chapel Royal, at St James’s Palace, in London, with 150 guests, in May.

Instead, a select group gathered for a more intimate ceremony today, with strict social distancing measures in place, Buckingham Palace confirmed today.

The Palace said in a statement: “The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place at 11am on Friday 17th July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.

“The small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family.

“The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government guidelines.”

INTIMATE CEREMONY

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.

 

A small wedding reception and sit-down meal is believed to have been held shortly afterwards inside Andrew and the Duchess of York’s home next door at the Royal Lodge.

Her Majesty was one of the first to leave the party at 11.45am in order to present a knighthood to 100-year-old NHS fundraising hero Capt Tom Moore inside Windsor Castle at 3pm.

It is the first time Andrew has been with the Queen since before lockdown and arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell.

A friend of Beatrice and Edoardo 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.

The friend said: “A massive wedding was out of the question because of coronavirus.

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.”

“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.”

A large delivery of beer was seen outside Windsor Castle this afternoon, although it is not known whether it was used for the wedding.
