Date September 27, 2019

Another royal wedding is on the way as Princess Beatrice, daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, announced her engagement to long-time boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Thursday.

The 31-year-old royal got engaged to her 34-year-old property tycoon partner in Italy earlier this month, BBC reports.

The princess, who happens to be ninth in line to the throne, is expected to tie the knot next year. In a statement, the pair said they are "both so excited" to start their "life adventure together."

The couple said they both share many similar interests and values which they believe will ensure their a strong marriage "full of love and happiness."

Princess Beatrice posted the statement on Twitter while iterating how "excited" she is to share this update.

Her mother, Sarah Ferguson is quite thrilled as well. She shared how proud she is of both her daughters' partners.

Even though many people congratulated Beatrice on her engagement, there were those who felt she should have made a better choice in a partner.

Some people brought up the fact that he already has a child outside of wedlock and they were concerned that this doesn't bode well for the marriage.

While speaking on the podcast Royals, royal expert Angela Mollard also expressed the view that the fact that Edo already has a child with someone else may be an obstacle to a traditional royal wedding.

I would hope there wouldn’t be any censure on him because of the fact that he has a son.

Neither Beatrice nor Edo seems concerned about any wedding drama, though. So their true fans can simply choose to congratulate them on taking this step.
