AFTER a tumultuous few months for the royal family, they finally have some good news.
Princess Beatrice has revealed the date and location of her wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
The statement read: "The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020.
It was also announced that the ceremony will take place at The Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace - where Beatrice and more recently Prince Louis were christened - with a reception to follow at Buckingham Palace.
"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."
It was accompanied by a picture of Beatrice and Edoardo taken by her younger sister Princess Eugenie shortly after they became engaged last year.
Royal correspondent Rebecca English also shared on Twitter that the Duke of York will give his daughter away.
The expert confirmed that the event will not be televised, and she added: "This will be a very different ceremony and far less public to that of Princess Eugenie."
Eugenie was quick to congratulate her older sister on the announcement on Instagram, where she shared a throwback snap of them both as children.
The Princess of York shared a photo of them being bridesmaids at their nanny Alison Wardley's wedding in 1993.
Captioning the snap Euegnie wrote: " She's so excited.... Today the family announced Beatrice will marry Edo on 29th May 2020. Very proud of this moment. Xx"
Speaking last week to the Daily Mail, a friend said: "Bea was delighted and very grateful to accept.
"It was a really special gesture as it will be the first wedding celebration at Buckingham Palace since William and Catherine's in 2011."
The three most recent royal nuptials were all held at Windsor Castle.
Last year, Lady Gabriella Windsor, 38, exchanged vows with businessman Thomas Kingston in the same location.
It had been thought that Beatrice and Edoardo - who joined Her Majesty at Sandringham for Christmas - would probably hold the ceremony at the Guards' Chapel at Wellington Barracks.
However, that remained unconfirmed as the Duke of York's role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards has been in doubt since he "stepped back" from royal duties in November.
It comes after we exclusively revealed that Beatrice was furious at being forced to put off announcing the date of her wedding for a second time due to her father's links to the Epstein scandal.
