Prince Andrew’s Daughter Beatrice Weds In Secret Ceremony

Princess Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew, married her fiance on Friday at a secret royal ceremony in Windsor.

Beatrice, 31 and Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, tied the knot in an unannounced ceremony with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance, along with a small number of guests.
The couple had been due to marry earlier in May but the event was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and no rescheduled date was given.
Buckingham Palace confirmed the secret ceremony:
The statement added that the event was attended by the Queen, 94, and her 99-year-old husband who have been self-isolating at the castle because their age puts them in a high-risk category for coronavirus.
Beatrice and her sister Eugenie, 30, are the daughters of Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson. Both attended the ceremony, as did the groom’s parents, reports said.
Prince Andrew is the third child and second son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Andrew stepped back from frontline royal duties last year after he caused outrage in a television interview by defending his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, the late American financier and convicted sex offender.
Epstein was found dead in prison last year as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges. Andrew, 60, has denied claims that he had sex with 17-year old traffi by Epstein.
US investigators are keen to speak to the prince about his links to Epstein, after the arrest of British socialite
Ghislaine Maxwell on sex trafficking charges.
