Princess Beatrice Wedding: Will Prince George and Archie Harrison Both Be in the Wedding Party?
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children will probably have a role in Princess Beatrice’s upcoming wedding. There is a good chance that the couple’s oldest son, Prince George, will be tasked with being a page boy at Beatrice’s big ceremony. But what are the chances that Beatrice invites Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie Harrison, to the wedding as well?
Princess Beatrice prepares for her big day
This past fall, Beatrice announced her engagement to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on social media. The couple shared a slew of engagement photos and opened up about their plans to tie the knot.
Princess Beatrice was naturally very excited about planning her ceremony, but the wedding has faced numerous hurdles over the past few months.
One of the biggest delays in the wedding plans has been due to all the drama the royals have endured over the past few months. This includes Prince Andrew’s recent sex scandal that forced him to step away from the royal spotlight.
Just when Beatrice thought the worst was behind her, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their shocking departure from the royal family in January.
Despite all the drama, Buckingham Palace recently confirmed that Princess Beatrice’s wedding will take place on May 29. The ceremony will be held inside the Chapel Royal, which is located at St. James’s Palace. The reception, meanwhile, will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace.
Prince George likely to attend Beatrice and Edoardo’s wedding
There are plenty of things to be excited about when it comes to a royal wedding, and one thing royal watchers always look out for is seeing which children will appear as the page boys and bridesmaids.
According to Express, William and Kate’s oldest son is fully expected to be a page boy at Princess Beatrice’s wedding. The palace has not confirmed George’s involvement, but oddsmakers in the UK believe George has the best chance of being a part of the wedding.
“With the date for Beatrice’s big day now being confirmed, attention will turn to the finer details and the early signs point towards key roles for George, Louis, and Charlotte,” Alex Apati, a representative of the betting agency, Ladbrokes, shared.
As fans will recall, George and his sister, Princess Charlotte, had a part in Princess Eugenie’s wedding a few years back. Princess Beatrice’s ceremony is not expected to be as grand as her younger sisters, but having George be a page boy would not be a big shocker.
There is also a chance that William and Kate’s youngest child, Prince Louis, will appear as a page boy as well. George and Louis have significantly better odds of being a part of the ceremony than Harry and Meghan’s son, Archie.
Will Archie be in Princess Beatrice’s wedding?
Harry and Meghan have not said anything about attending Princess Beatrice’s wedding in May. The couple is expected to return to the UK in March before going back to North America.
If they are not in town at the time of Beatrice’s wedding, there is a slim chance that they will make an appearance. After all, the whole point of them leaving the royal family is so that they can live outside of the spotlight.
That said, Meghan was a guest at Eugenie’s wedding in 2018. Her appearance at the ceremony sparked rumors that she was expecting her first child with Harry. Four days after the wedding, Meghan and Harry confirmed the pregnancy.
Fans have reacted to the likelihood of Meghan and Harry showing up to Beatrice’s wedding. Taking to social media, fans expressed a lot of doubt about the couple returning to the UK for the ceremony, with some questioning why Princess Beatrice would invite them at all.
Kate Middleton opens up about feeling isolated
While we wait to see if Archie makes the wedding, Kate recently opened up about how she felt isolated after giving birth to George.
The Duchess of Cambridge explained how things were very difficult when George was a newborn, mainly because William was still a member of the Royal Air Force and was frequently away from home.
While speaking to a group at a center for children and parents in Cardiff, Wales, Kate admitted that she would have loved a place like that when she was a new mom.
“I was chatting to some of the mums. It was the first year and I’d just had George — William was still working with search and rescue — and we came up here and I had a tiny, tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey. It was so isolated, so cut off. I didn’t have any family around, and he was doing night shifts. So…if only I had had a center like this,” Kate shared.
Kate Middleton has not commented on the rumors surrounding Prince George’s involvement in Princess Beatrice’s wedding.
