Is Princess Beatrice Rushing to Get Married After Princess Eugenie?
In October 2018, we watched Princess Eugenie marry the love of her life, Jack Brooksbank. The wedding was beautiful — and Eugenie, of course, looked gorgeous as she took the spotlight. But it had many wondering about her older sister, Princess Beatrice. While we watched Beatrice enter with her infamous mother, Sarah Ferguson, it was noted how she didn’t have a man of her own on her arm. And fans of the royals wondered if Beatrice was single.
Now, it looks like Beatrice has a boyfriend of her own. Here’s why some think she could be rushing down the aisle after her sister.
Princess Beatrice is rumored to be dating Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
She may have been single in October, but just a month later, People reports Beatrice is rumored to be dating Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Not only is Edoardo four years older than Beatrice, but he’s also reportedly a multimillionaire property tycoon.
As for how Beatrice and her new love interest met, it was rumored that they just met recently, but the publication sets the record straight. They actually were introduced years ago, most likely because their parents knew each other. Edoardo is Christopher Shale’s stepson, and Shale was a close associate to the Prime Minister at the time, David Cameron. And Cameron was friends with Beatrice’s parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew. For this reason, it’s certain Edoardo and Beatrice have crossed paths many times.
Friends say the relationship could be headed for engagement
Not only is Beatrice rumored to be seeing this new man, but she’s also allegedly falling for him very quickly. According to AOL, the two have been having a “real laugh together” and are already attending parties with one another and meeting each other’s friend groups. Another source told The Sun, “Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time. … They could even be tying the knot in 2019 — it’s already been discussed by her friends.”
It seems Edoardo doesn’t have cold feet when it comes to marriage, either. He’s already been married once before, and he even has a young son, Wolfie. As for whether he’s looking toward taking his relationship with Beatrice to the next level, we’ll all have to wait and see.
Beatrice has been in a long-term relationship before
This isn’t the first time Beatrice has been serious about a man she was dating. She was in a 10-year relationship with Dave Clark, though the two called it off in 2016. While royal family members were allegedly “shocked and saddened” by the sudden breakup, there were other rumblings that not every family member was a fan of Dave’s anyhow. It seems Prince William didn’t approve of the two dating from the start. Perhaps he’ll think Beatrice and Edoardo are more suited for each other.
As for why Dave Clark and Beatrice broke up, some sources say it’s because Beatrice may have been pressuring Dave to propose. We now know he didn’t propose, of course — but after Beatrice, he didn’t waste much time getting engaged to his next girlfriend. He proposed to Lynn Anderson less than a year after his split from the royal.
Is she jealous of Eugenie? Probably not
Some speculate that Beatrice is rushing to get married because she feels pressure after Eugenie’s wedding. And others may even suspect that the older royal is jealous of her newlywed younger sister. That’s probably not the case, however. Eugenie and Beatrice have had a close relationship since they were young, and they’ve been by each other’s sides through the best and worst of times.
Not only that, but Beatrice is a big fan of Jack Brooksbank, too. She read a special passage from The Great Gatsby at Eugenie’s wedding since it reminded Eugenie of Jack’s smile.
