Princess Beatrice Engagement News Snubbed By Meghan, Harry, William, and Kate
Princess Beatrice could not be happier about marrying Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, but there are other members of the royal family who might not be thrilled about their coming nuptials. Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie, announced the exciting news on social media this week, and most of the royals congratulated the couple online. But the engagement announcement was curiously snubbed by Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Prince William. So why didn’t they post anything about Beatrice’s engagement?
Princess Beatrice gets engaged
Beatrice and Mozzi have only been dating since 2018, though they have known each other since childhood. During a recent trip to Italy, Mozzie proposed to Beatrice with a gorgeous diamond ring that won her over immediately.
The couple kept the engagement a secret until this week when Eugenie shared some engagement photos on social media.
Following the announcement, several members of the royal family expressed their excitement about Princess Beatrice’s engagement online.
This includes Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince Andrew, and Sarah Ferguson, all of whom shared some adorable pics of the couple.
According to Express, Beatrice and Mozzi later issued a statement regarding their engagement. The couple told their fans that they cannot wait to tie the knot and are preparing for many years of happiness together.
“We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement,” the statement read. “We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married…”
Beatrice’s dad, Prince Andrew, also issued a statement in support of her upcoming union. Andrew revealed that he could not be happier to have a son-in-law like Mozzi and is looking forward to their wedding. He also noted that Eugenie is the one who took their engagement photos
While most members of the royal family congratulated Beatrice and Mozzi, the Sussexes and the Cambridges were completely silent about the announcement.
Beatrice gets snubbed by her royal cousins
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently touring South Africa and have yet to say anything about Beatrice’s engagement. Instead, the couple’s Instagram page is filled with photos of their trip, including shots of baby Archie.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have also failed to mention Beatrice and Mozzi’s exciting news. Their Instagram account features pics of their latest outing to Birkenhead, where they rubbed elbows with Sir David Attenborough.
There is no telling if the couples will congratulate Beatrice in the near future, but it is curious that they have not said anything so far. After all, they likely knew about the engagement long before it became public knowledge and would have had plenty of time to prepare a statement.
Meghan Markle’s fans react to the engagement
To be fair, Markle and Harry have their hands full at the moment. The two just kicked off their 10-day tour of South Africa, which includes a slew of stops in various countries.
They are also traveling with their baby for the first time ever and are probably feeling plenty of stress at the moment.
While we wait to see if Markle and Harry congratulate Princess Beatrice, the couple’s fans have already expressed their thoughts on her engagement – and it’s not looking pretty.
A lot of fans openly criticized Beatrice and Mozzi for the timing of their engagement announcement, which basically coincided with the beginning of Markle and Harry’s new tour.
Some fans slammed Beatrice for attempting to steal the limelight, while others pointed out that they should have waited a few more days to make the announcement.
“It’s more like Beatrice hogging the limelight during Meghan’s South African tour,” a fan wrote on Twitter. “Couldn’t she have waited for a couple of days?”
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi got engaged earlier this month, so they could have waited to make the announcement until next week. That said, they were under no obligation to wait for Harry and Markle’s tour buzz to die down and are free to do as they please.
Although some fans expressed their support for Markle, others took to Princess Beatrice’s defense. In fact, a few people predicted that Markle will make her pregnancy announcement when Beatrice’s wedding comes around, just to get her back.
Harry and Markle have not said anything about snubbing Beatrice. William and Middleton have also remained silent on the issue, despite having no excuse for not congratulating their cousin.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have not announced an official wedding date, though they are expected to exchange vows sometime next November.
