PRINCESS BEATRICE delighted fans by mentioning her recent wedding in a new charity video. According to a body language expert, the royal also dropped a huge hint about her big day.
Princess Beatrice, 32, made a rare virtual appearance on Friday and spoke about her royal wedding for the first time. Beatrice tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret ceremony on July 17 and carried out her first engagement since the special day last week.
Beatrice was filmed announcing the winners of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice’s Kids Summer Art Competition 2020.
The clip was shared on the charity’s Twitter page on the same day Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie’s, 30, pregnancy was confirmed to the world.
Beatrice’s wedding was a strictly private affair and the ceremony was attended by just 30 people – in keeping with COVID-19 guidelines.
Very few photos from the special occasion were shared with the public and a body language expert has claimed Bea could be ramping up for a bigger celebration next year.

Having analysed the clip in which Beatrice addresses the young competition winners, body language expert and author Judi James told Express.co.uk: “This is an endearing appearance from Beatrice and possibly one of the first time royal fans will have heard her talking to the camera.”
According to Judi, Beatrice makes a special effort to show off her wedding ring.
The analyst said: “Addressing an audience of children she adopts a fun, teasing, but also self-effacing tone when talking about the drawing of her wedding, although the big give-away to her status as a new and very proud bride is the way that she holds the picture to the camera in a grasp that just happens to make a big feature of her wedding and engagement rings.”
Judi claimed Beatrice’s enthusiasm shows she enjoys discussing her wedding day.
She said: “Beatrice’s small body-bounces show her enthusiasm and excitement for the rather pared-down day and as she speaks the way she tilts her head back and opens her mouth quite wide before forming her words suggests it is still something she loves to discuss.”
The body language expert also suggested Beatrice’s gestures seem to hint she may choose to celebrate her wedding in a bigger way next year.
Judi said: “There are two moments of what look like incongruence here, firstly in her choice of words: ‘I had the chance to get married this year’, which might hint that they are planning a more lavish celebration once the pandemic allows for it, and the way she dips her eyes down twice as she tells her audience that it was ‘so much fun’.”
The expert claimed Beatrice displays ‘bashful’ body language and ‘is still a blushing bride.’

Judi said: “These would normally be cut-off signals that might imply some mixed thoughts or emotions but in Beatrice’s case her large eyes do widen slightly when she looks back up at the camera, suggesting she’s being the slightly bashful and still-blushing bride by looking down.”
According to Judi, Bea’s large eyes make it hard for her to hide her emotions.
The expert added: “Beatrice’s eyes are so big she would probably be unable to hide her emotions and when we do see them fully their expression seems to be all about the ongoing excitement of her wedding day.”
Princess Beatrice and her younger sister Eugenie are extremely close and Bea will no doubt be delighted by Eugenie’s baby news.

Two weeks ago Beatrice was spotted leaving a baby shop in West London prompting speculation she had sourced a gift for her expectant sister before the pregnancy was officially announced.
Beatrice and Edoardo are understood to have honeymooned in France and Italy before returning to the UK in late August.
The couple are believed to be based at Beatrice’s royal apartment in St James’s Palace.
Upon marrying Edoardo, Beatrice became a stepmother to his foiur-year-old son Christopher who is known as Wolfie.
