Princess Beatrice Doesn't Need The Queen's Permission To Marry Edoardo, Unlike Her Cousins, William And Harry

Every royal fan is eagerly waiting for the next royal wedding — Princess Beatrice has sparked rumors about long-awaited nuptials with a divorcée and father-of-one, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The couple is often spotted together on A-list events and is reportedly living together at Beatrice's apartment. People can already hear the wedding bells, and so do we!

In fact, Princess Beatrice does not need permission from her grandmother to marry Edoardo. It's no question that royals, such as Prince William and Prince Harry, had to ask the Queen to marry Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle respectively.

Everything has to do with the royal protocol, namely the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, which was altered back in 2013. If previously every member had to ask permission, now, only first six royals in the line to the throne are obliged to do so.

As far as you understand, the Princess of York isn't included in the list since she is nine to the British throne. Besides, she is not working royal and has a job outside the family, so Beatrice shouldn't ask the Queen to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

By the way, the only time when Queen Elizabeth II did not allow to marry was when her sister, Princess Margaret, ask to tie the knot with the divorcée as it was not common at that time.

Now, everything has changed and it is permissible to divorce as in the case of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and marry a divorcée as in the case of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
