Princess Beatrice and the Italian entrepreneur will likely get married “as early as next spring or summer”, an insider claimed. As speculation of another royal wedding gets louder by the day, a royal expert fuelled hopes Beatrice and Edoardo, also known to friends as ‘Edo’, are set to tie the knot soon. 

Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine, told Hello! magazine: “They’re going to get married – I was told by a member of the family.

“I think a wedding as early as next spring or summer is likely.”

The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, also affectionately called Fergie, is ninth-in-line to the throne, which means she doesn’t need the Queen’s approval to get married. 

But, as she is said to be very close to her grandmother, Beatrice is likely to want to discuss her wedding plans with the monarch.

And, according to Ms Seward, she may have already done it at Balmoral Castle.

Princess Beatrice hasn’t so far been spotted in Aberdeenshire, when her parents Prince Andrew and Fergie, as well as her sister Eugenie and brother-in-law Jack Brooksbank spent a few days in the Queen’s estate earlier this month.

But, according to reports, she travelled up north last week.

Ms Seward said: “It’s possible they wanted to tell the Queen that Beatrice was engaged.

“They have to find a gap in her diary before they name the day, and this would have been the ideal opportunity to discuss it.”

Other royal commentators have also noticed how close Edoardo and Beatrice have become within just months.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said the relationship between Beatrice and Edoardo as “extremely close” despite them having been together for a relatively short period of time.

He told Express.co.uk: “There seems no doubt that the relationship between Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is an extremely close one though they have not been an item for a year yet.”

Speaking of the possibilities of their engagement coming up within months, Mr Fitzwilliams added: “It may or may not be, the York’s do nothing by halves so St George’s Chapel Windsor will probably be used if they do marry.”

The love story between Edoardo and Beatrice started in mid-September last year, when the pair was introduced by friends in common.

The couple immediately hit off, according to a source close to the loved-up pair, with friends of Beatrice and Edoardo being left to believe they would marry soon.

Speaking to The Sun last November, a friend said: “They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together.

“They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad.

“Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time.

“They could even be tying the knot in 2019 — it’s already been discussed by her friends.

“Everyone is thrilled that Beatrice is so happy and in such a good place right now.”

Edoardo didn’t attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding on October 12, 2018, but made his public debut with Beatrice at another Royal Wedding, the nuptials of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston on May 18, where he likely met the Queen who was also in attendance.

Punters have been convinced for weeks the wedding will take place soon.

Ladbrokes previously told Express.co.uk they suspended betting on the engagement being announced by the end of the year last July.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes told Express.co.uk: “It looks like Edo will be popping the question to Princess Beatrice sooner rather than later, leaving us with little option but to suspend betting on the happy couple making an announcement.

“It’s time for Fergie and Her Majesty to go hat shopping.”
