It was just last week when the Palace officially announced that Princess Beatrice was engaged to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. And now there are reports that the two might already be secretly married already.

Princess Beatrice of York hails from the British royal family. She was in Italy with Edoardo to attend Misha Nonoo’s wedding in Rome when he popped up the big question. While they were to get married in 2020, now rumors are rife that the couple got secretly married during this trip.  

“Beatrice secretly got engaged in Italy and went to Misha Nonoo’s wedding near Rome,” an insider told New Idea. “There are even rumours Bea and Edoardo may have got married secretly there as they love the country so much.”

“We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to be married!” the elated duo announced on Thursday. “We share so many similar interests and values and we know this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness!”

A few pictures of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo were released online a couple of weeks back where she was seen sporting a black bikini while on their Italian vacay. The holiday pictures have only added fuel to the marriage speculations. 

“They didn’t have to invite any royal relatives they don’t get on with,” the source said. “And after all the bad publicity over Andrew and Fergie’s links with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein a secret wedding abroad would’ve been a great distraction,” the source added.

If reports are to be believed, the royals have planned a lavish extravaganza in England in honor of Beatrice and Edoardo. Now that they have returned from the vacation, Beatrice has an official wedding planned.

She has been looking for dresses, rings and place settings. Taking inspiration from Meghan Markle, Bea has decided to go vegan to get in shape before her wedding.

“Loved-up Bea has been looking at dresses and rings, place settings, menus and venues after helping Eugenie plan hers,” said the source.
