LONDON: Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Princess Beatrice and her fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have canceled their royal wedding due to the lockdown in the United Kingdom amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Princess Beatrice had earlier in March scaled back her wedding plans. The couple had previously announced they were set to marry in London at St. James’s Palace on May 29, followed by a planned reception which was due to be held at Buckingham Palace in May hosted by the Queen.
The wedding of Princess Beatrice and Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi has officially been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the palace has confirmed the plans are no longer going ahead and that the royal wedding has indeed been canceled.
“There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time,” a spokesman told and entertainment magazine. “There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”
