The world is set to have another royal wedding! The Duke and Duchess of York’s second and last daughter is getting hitched. Princess Beatrice announced her engagement to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and royal fans couldn’t be more excited.

Edo proposed to his beloved in September during their trip to Italy. Even though the wedding details haven’t been released yet, people already wonder if Mozzi will get a royal title after marrying the Queen’s granddaughter.

He most likely won’t

Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a successful property developer. His family is known to be friends with the Duke and Duchess of York, yet Edo is not just a simple commoner.

Even though he is British-born, Mozzi’s family is Italian and has aristocratic roots. He is the son of British-Italian Olympic alpine skier Conte Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi. It means that Edo could claim to be a Conte, which is Count, himself.

Unfortunately, he can’t do it because, since 1948, the Italian Constitution doesn’t recognize the noble titles. However, Edoardo won’t be allowed to claim the British title either.

The UK’s law doesn’t permit foreign nobility to claim titles unless there is a special warrant given. When Princess Beatrice’s younger sister Eugenie married a commoner Jack Brooksbank, he was left title-less.

So it’s safe to say the Queen won’t give any warrants for Mozzi either.
