Princess Beatrice’s new romance has ‘shocked’ royal family
Princess Beatrice may be head-over-heels for her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, but apparently not everyone is thrilled for the new couple.
Their relationship reportedly came as a “surprise” to her parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew as they’d known his family for years.
But the family of Edoardo’s ex-fiancé, Dara Huang, were also “shocked” as they thought he and Dara were still together, according to the Daily Mail.
“I think Dara was hiding it from me,” Dara’s mum Lily told the publication. “‘She didn’t want me to be sad. I am shocked.”
In fact, she only found out about the breakup from her eldest daughter, and is having difficulty adjusting to the news.
“I love Edo. I love his family,” Lily said. “Why has this happened? This has broken me to bits.”
Dara, who often travels for work, is now said to have left her and Edoardo’s shared London home and is staying on a friend’s sofa while looking for a new place to live. The former couple also share a two-year-old son.
Rumours have been circulating that Edoardo was still with Dara when he began dating Princess Beatrice in September. But according to a close family friend, the pair had called it quits six months ago, long before he began dating the 30-year-old royal.
A palace aide told the news outlet that any rumblings of Princess Beatrice taking up with her new man while he was involved with his ex are false.
“She would never allow herself to break into another couple’s happiness,” the source said. “Especially if there was a small child.”
Still, the news has rocked the families involved.
“Before this, my daughter was happy,” she said. “But now she has cried with her sister…But I am a Christian. I told my daughter: ‘You have to bless people, you bless them, don’t be mad. Wish them good luck.’”
