Princess Beatrice might 'never get married' as coronavirus pushes wedding date once again, claims royal expert
'Princess Eugenie's sister is the poor royal bride who is never going to get married it seems'
Amid multiple obstacles that Princess Beatrice continues to face with regard to organizing her wedding with fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, a royal expert has said that there was a high possibility that she might not end up getting married at all.
Misfortune surrounding her wedding began when her father, Prince Andrew, was fired by the Queen following him defying the palace's advice and going public with his links to disgraced billionaire pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein. As a result of his non-existence annual salary, doubts were cast on the source of funding for Beatrice's wedding which would be fit for a princess. While the royal was grappling with the possibility of having to end up with a less-than-glamorous wedding reception, Princess Beatrice was reportedly forced to delay her wedding date for a second time over the scandal surrounding her father. And the third time it was the coronavirus pandemic as doubts were cast on how Edoardo's relatives would be able to make to the UK from Italy as international travel is restricted in a number of countries around the world.
As cases of coronavirus increased in the United Kingdom, the British monarch was forced to abandon the Buckingham Palace and move to the Windsor Castle instead to self-isolate with her husband, Prince Philip. As a result, although the Queen had promised that Beatrice's reception will be held at her palace grounds, that venue flew out of the window amid the health crisis.
Due to all the confusion and uncertainty regarding her wedding, royal expert Angela Mollard opined that Princess Beatrice's wedding might not be in the cards after all.
"Princess Eugenie, you remember her? She's the one who got married to Jack Brooksbank. Obviously her sister is the poor royal bride who is never going to get married it seems. Eugenie is living with her mum, Fergie, Sarah Ferguson. They're at the royal lodge together. We know this because on Friday we found out the Duchess of York was handing out treats to NHS workers. She has a friend who runs a German confectionery company and she had this big delivery of confectionaries. They're putting together these care packages for doctors and staff at London hospitals, driving them to the hospitals and dropping them off. In the packages, they've got toothpaste, soap, dry pasta, cereal, and tinned fruit," she said, Express reported.
Since the Church of England has limited the number of people attending church weddings during the outbreak to the legal minimum of five, it was reported that if Beatrice does go ahead with her wedding this year she will be allowed to have only two guests at her wedding.
"We heard before that the Queen was hosting a reception at Buckingham Palace in the gardens, that's no longer taking place. The couple are now working with the Government and taking Government advice to decide whether even a private marriage might take place among a tiny group of friends and family. From what I've heard after speaking with sources was the couple are now looking at postponing entirely until 2021," Royal expert Omid Scobie said.
The wedding was initially planned for May 29. However, the Buckingham Palace spokesman has maintained that the wedding will be taking place this year. "Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward to getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances. In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May," a statement said.
