Inside Princess Beatrice’s whirlwind romance

Beatrice went public with her romance this past March. The two made an official appearance at the National Portrait Gallery’s Gala and have not slowed down since.

According to Express, Mozzi has appeared alongside Beatrice during family getaways and weddings, including Lady Gabriella Windsor’s nuptials last spring. Things have even reached the point where Mozzi has moved into Beatrice’s place at St. James Palace.

Although their romance is young, inside sources claim that the couple is already planning a wedding of their own – taking a page right out of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s book.

Ingrid Seward, an expert on the royals, says that the royal family knows a wedding is on the horizon. Nothing has been set in stone, but they are preparing for a spring or summer wedding – which means another royal wedding could be right around the corner!

“They’re going to get married – I was told a member of the family,” Seward shared. “I think a wedding as early as next spring or summer is likely.”

Princess Beatrice, of course, does not have to get permission from Queen Elizabeth to marry, which is probably making the process a little easier.

As the ninth person in line to the throne, Beatrice is free to pick whoever she wants to marry and can make that decision all by herself. She did, however, recently visit Her Majesty at Balmoral, where they likely discussed how the relationship was going.

Why is Princess Beatrice rushing to get married?

Sources say that Beatrice is completely in love with Mozzi and will marry him as soon as she finds room in her busy schedule.

If the rumors are true, then the pair will likely exchange vows at some point next year, depending on how Beatrice’s schedule shakes out.

Apart from love, insiders say that Beatrice wants to get hitched so that she can start having children. Beatrice has apparently wanted a family for quite some time and is even willing to get pregnant before the wedding to make it happen.

“She wants a family and doesn’t care if she’s pregnant when they walk down the aisle – even though this would be heavily frowned upon by the senior royals,” one source revealed.

The insider added that Princess Beatrice might not care what anyone thinks, which could result in a shotgun wedding.

The royal family, of course, has not commented on the rumors. The reports turned out to be true with the royal family announcing the happy news on Instagram and revealing that they got engaged earlier this month.

While the couple is moving fast, they are not the first members of the royal family to do so. Harry and Markle only dated a year before getting engaged in 2017.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in May of 2018 and now share one child together, Archie. They may have rushed into marriage, but it has worked out for them so far.

Who is Mozzi?

Mozzi made his fortune in the real estate industry and is worth several millions of dollars. He has reportedly been friends with Beatrice for a number of years, though they only recently sparked a romance.

Mozzi also has some royalty in his blood. His ancestors come from Italian nobility, while his father was a famous Olympic skier back in the 1970s.

Prior to dating Mozzi, Princess Beatrice was in a long-term relationship with David Clark. The two split in 2016, however, amid rumors that Beatrice wanted to get married.

Beatrice attends Misha Nonoo’s wedding

Speaking of getting married, Princess Beatrice recently made an appearance at Misha Nonoo’s wedding, an event that was also attended by Markle and Harry.

Beatrice rocked a sequined gown for the lavish occasion, complete with a sparkly headband. Beatrice was accompanied by her sister, Princess Eugenie.

Nonoo is good friends with a few members of the royal family, including Markle, Harry, Beatrice, and Eugenie. In fact, Markle and Nonoo recently partnered up to create a line of women’s workwear for the charity, Smart Works.

Princess Beatrice has not said anything about the wedding rumors, but she definitely appears more than happy in her new relationship. Congrats to the happy couple!
