Princess Beatrice cancels upcoming wedding due to coronavirus

Princess Beatrice cancels wedding.

Princess Beatrice has cancelled her wedding amid the coronavirus pandemic after the UK government extends lockdown restrictions by another three weeks.

The 31-year-old royal—who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and his former wife Sarah Ferguson—was due to marry her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on May 29, but sources had previously announced she was “reviewing” her options amid the current health crisis, including making changes such as axing the reception.

But now, a spokesperson for the royal has confirmed Beatrice and Edoardo have decided to postpone their nuptials completely.

The representative told People magazine: “There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time. There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”

Beatrice and Edoardo were due to marry at St James’s Palace in London, with a reception to follow at her grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s gardens at Buckingham Palace.
