PRINCESS BEATRICE will tie the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi next year and while an official announcement is yet to be made, insiders claim it will take place in June. This is the real reason Beatrice will want a spring wedding, according to a wedding expert.
Princess Beatrice, 31, and Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 36, announced their engagement in October. While details about their royal wedding are being kept under wraps a date is expected to be announced in January. The couple is said to be planning a royal wedding for June when the weather is finer.
The Queen’s favourite week of the year is Royal Ascot which starts on June 16 and it is understood the royal wedding will be held before this to avoid a clash.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: “Bea and Edo will finally announce their wedding date in the second week of January.
“The date has been described as ‘early summer’, just before the summer social season kicks off.”
Spring is an extremely popular time of year of weddings and with good reason, according to one expert.
From flowers coming into bloom to the “renewed energy” of the season there are dozens of pros to getting married in June.
Wedding planner and CEO of Taylor Lynn Corporation (www.tlc-ltd.co.uk) Liz Taylor told Express.co.uk: “Spring is a wonderful time to get married.
“There is a renewed energy in the season after the dark winter months– with a shift to bright garden flowers such as tulips, hyacinth, peonies and daffodils.
“They bring a splash of colour to wedding bouquets and yet, a delicacy that is a nod to the romance of the day.”
