This Is How Princess Beatrice's Wedding Will Differ from Kate, Meghan, and Eugenie's Nuptials
Princess Beatrice's 2020 nuptials to Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi won't be anything like the bride-to-be's sister Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank, reports People—or Kate Middleton and Prince William or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's celebrations, for that matter, says another People source. The reason? Though they are all royal (and have access to some of the best event planners, wedding-dress designers, and florists in the world), they couldn't be more different.
According to one of the outlet's insiders, Beatrice is one of the more reserved grandchildren of the queen. Unlike Eugenie, who's reported to be the more outgoing of the two sisters, Beatrice is more private—something that will undoubtedly be reflected in the size of her wedding. "She has talked about having a smaller affair in the past," another insider (an alleged close friend of the bride-to-be) explained, adding that the ceremony could, at the very earliest, take place this spring.
Another key difference? Unfortunately, the event likely will not be televised, unlike the nuptials of her royal relatives. Both ITV and BBC—the outlets responsible for streaming the weddings of royals past—have announced they won't be broadcasting live during Beatrice and Edoardo's event.
Though we won't know much about the Beatrice and Edoardo's big-day details until the celebration actually unfolds, it's safe to expect that the event, from its décor to the bride's gown, will be more low-key than royal weddings past. "Beatrice and Eugenie are super close, but they are very different," the original source noted. "Beatrice is more serious and Eugenie is the outgoing extrovert, she's so bubbly and fun. Beatrice is more reserved and discreet. She holds back more, she is very polite, very well-educated but more formal and quiet in her personality, so I think it will be a very different wedding to Eugenie's."
It is possible, however, that Beatrice's wedding will be similar to Eugenie's in one significant way: the venue. The past two royal weddings (including Eugenie and Jack's and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's) have been held at Windsor Castle—so there's a good chance Beatrice and Edoardo will stick to that precedent and tie the knot there, too.
