Choosing to have her wedding reception at Buckingham Palace is Beatrice echoing the wedding of her cousin Prince William. The couple became engaged in Italy in September 2019.

It is also likely to have special significance to Beatrice, who has lived at St James's Palace for several years, and was baptised there herself in December 1988.

Britain's Princess Beatrice, the elder daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, will marry her fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at London's St James's Palace on May 29, Buckingham Palace announced on Friday.

It will be a big contrast to the weddings of Beatrice's sister Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, with an estimated 800 guests, and Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle, where 600 guests congregated at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

The Queen has also given the couple permission to host a reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace for close friends and family after the ceremony.

It's nearly time for Princess Beatrizit's the big day!

According to a palace statement on Friday, the next royal wedding will be held on 29 May.

The Chapel Royal, situated within the grounds of St James's Palace, holds regular services which are open to the public, as well as hosting some unique Royal services.

Prince Andrew has retired from royal duties for the foreseeable future.

The engagement announcement was made in September past year, with Beatrice's sister Princess Eugenie sharing a collection of pictures of the happy couple.

Beatrice's sister Princess Eugenie also had two special wedding party members: Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The occasion could not come at a worse time for the York family, which remains engulfed by the continued fallout over the Duke's disastrous Newsnight interview.

"We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can't wait to actually be married".

"We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness".
