Princess Beatrice and Edo Mapelli Mozzi Are Taking a Road Trip Across France for Their Honeymoon
A source revealed that this was a last-minute decision.
After celebrating their I dos with an intimate group of 20 loved ones, Princess and Beatrice and Edo Mapelli Mozzi decided to hit the open road for their honeymoon. According to The Daily Mail, the pair is traveling across France during their post-nuptial vacation—a tourist even spotted the pair as they made their way to their destination. "Edo was behind the wheel and they looked just like any other couple enjoying the beautiful drive," the traveler told the outlet. Apparently, they are driving in "a small car absolutely packed to the roof with stuff," the tourist added.
The decision to travel actually came at the last minute, another source revealed. "They weren't going to bother but at the last minute they decided to pack up the car and head out. They're a very down-to-earth couple," they said. "The wedding was arranged in a couple of weeks, and with lockdown their choice of honeymoon destinations was severely curtailed."
While the couple is likely taking their spur-of-the-moment trip in stride, a source shares that the two are planning to stop in Lamu Island, where Edo's family owns a property. The couple actually vacationed there at the dawn of their relationship.
By now, Princess Beatrice and Edo are used to setting last-minute plans into action; the two quickly pieced together their wedding after rescheduling their May 29 big day due to the COVID-19 lockdown. In fact, the bride asked her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, if she could borrow one of her prized gowns from her collection for her walk down the aisle, People previously reported. "[The request] was kindly granted—and it looked amazing!" a source shared. "It was touching for both of them."
