Princess Beatrice wedding: Sweet detail you might have missed about Bea’s upcoming wedding

For months there was much speculation over the date of Princess Beatrice’s royal wedding. But now Beatrice’s wedding date has been confirmed, some may have spotted how the young princess is following in royal footsteps for her big day.

This month Buckingham Palace announced Princess Beatrice will marry in May.

The statement, released via the official Royal Family Instagram account, read: “The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020.

“The couple became engaged in Italy in September 2019.

“The Queen has kindly given permission for the ceremony to take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.

“The ceremony will be followed by a private reception, given by The Queen, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.”

In one way in particular, Beatrice will continue a precedent set by royal weddings of the past.

While royal experts had speculated Beatrice would marry in June, it turns out Bea will follow in the footsteps of other royal brides and marry in May.

Many of the ‘modern’ members of the Royal Family have opted to marry in May, including Peter Phillips and wife Autumn in May 2008.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also married on May 19, 2018.

The most recent May royal wedding was that of Lady Gabriella Windsor on May 18, 2019 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Although Beatrice’s wedding will be similar in this regard, in many ways, her nuptials look likely to be very different from other royal weddings.

For one, Beatrice has bucked the trend with her choice of wedding venue.

Instead of marrying in a popular royal wedding venue like Westminster Abbey or St George’s Chapel in Windsor, Beatrice has opted to marry at the Chapel Royal.

The Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace was the backdrop for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s wedding in 1840, but has not been used often since for royal weddings.

Beatrice’s wedding will also be different because it won’t be televised, unlike the wedding of her sister Princess Eugenie in 2018.

Beatrice’s big day looks likely to be a much more private affair than previous high-profile royal weddings.

As the Chapel is situated in the grounds of St James’s, it’s unlikely there will be a crowd awaiting the bride’s arrival.

The Queen has also granted Beatrice the use of Buckingham Palace following the ceremony.

The Queen will host a private reception for Beatrice and Edoardo’s wedding guests, away from the public and press.

A private reception at Buckingham Palace has not been held for any royal wedding since the nuptials of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2011.
