This is why The Queen might not attend Princess Beatrice’s wedding

Last week, Princess Beatrice announced her engagement to fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, news which was revealed by not only her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, but her sister princess Eugenie, who shared a touching Instagram post dedicated to the milestone.

But while we’ve seen the adorable engagement pictures and gushed over her beautiful ring (not to mention that dress), not much has been revealed about Beatrice’s wedding yet, other than the fact that it is set to take place sometime in 2020.

However now, an insider has revealed that her grandmother, the Queen, may not be able to attend the big day. In fact, according to royal expert Ingrid Seward, Her Majesty’s attendance will be heavily dependent on where Beatrice and Edoardo decide to get married.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Seward said: ‘I think in her heart Beatrice would like to be married in Italy where Edo’s from. But there’s no way the Queen will fly to Europe for the wedding so it will have to be in England.’

Who knows – perhaps a modern royal bride can have two celebrations? We’ll have to wait and see.

The newly-engaged couple looked happier than ever in their engagement snaps, which were shared on social media by both Beatrice and her sister.

‘We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement,’ Beatrice said in an emotional post. ‘We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually 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.’

Meanwhile her sister was the first to send her love to the happy couple, writing on Instargram:’Beabea – wow! I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be. 📷 by me!!’
