PRINCESS Beatrice has done the “right thing” by cancelling her wedding amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a royal commentator.
ABC News’ foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli told the Heir Podcast it was heartbreaking to see Princess Beatrice cancel her wedding. Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had planned to get married at the end of May 2020. However following the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic that has badly affected both Britain and Italy, the decision was made to put the wedding on hold.
Ms Raggi said: “We are rational humans we know it is not the biggest deal.
“This is a life or death situation.
“On a day to day basis for a lot of people, it is affecting their daily lives.
“A lot of friends of mine having weddings that they are planning.

“It is a milestone, it is a huge moment, something that you will remember forever.”
She continuned: “So to see someone like Beatrice dealing with those same emotions of knowing it is the right thing to do, knowing that you can’t have people travelling in for a wedding.
“But also knowing how much time and thought has gone into it.
“Your heart does break for Beatrice and all the other brides and grooms out there that are trying to plan this big day.
“Plans everywhere are getting uprooted left and right and it is just part of this crisis.
“It is definitely an emotional toll that people are going through.”
