Who is Princess Beatrice’s New Billionaire Boyfriend?

Princess Beatrice has a new man! With so much hoopla surrounding her sister, Princess Eugenie’s wedding and all of the attention that her cousins, Duchess Kate Middleton, and Duchess Meghan Markle have brought to the royal family, Prince Beatrice is often forgotten about. The elder Princess of York is mostly known for her epic hats and her campaigns against bullying. However, unlike her sister and her cousins, Princess Beatrice’s personal life hasn’t exactly made headlines.

In 2006, she caused a bit of a scandal for dating an American businessman named Paolo Liuzzo who had been charged with assault and battery. Shortly thereafter, she began a relationship with Virgin Galactic businessman Dave Clark. Their romance lasted for a decade before it finally fizzled out in July 2016. Now, it looks like Princess Beatrice has a new love in her life, and she’s ready to go public about it. So who is the princess’ new beau, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi?

A millionaire tycoon

Princess Beatrice could certainly do worse. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a 34-year old, multi-millionaire property tycoon. He’s not exactly a stranger to Britain’s elite. In fact, according to Daily Mail, Mozzi is the stepson of Christopher Shale, a late friend of former prime minister, David Cameron. According to The Sun, “The businessman specializes in discreetly funding and developing multi-million-pound homes for rich clients.”

Since Princess Beatrice has a combined net worth with her sister of £3.6 million, we’re glad to know that Mozzi hasn’t sought her out because of her money and status. You can never be too careful these days.

The perfect meet-cute

Since the princess and Mozzi just began sating in Sept. 2018, their romance is quite new. However, they’ve been having a wonderful time together. The pair were introduced through a mutual friend just as the summer ended. The Sun reported, “They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together. They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad. 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.”

Though they were just formally introduced, the pair has run in the same circle for years. After all, the princess’ parents Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, attended Mozzi’s stepfather’s funeral when he passed away in 2011.

A princess and a stepmother?

Though the British Royal Family has welcomed Prince Harry’s new wife, Duchess Meghan Markle who is a divorcee with open arms, Mozzi could bring a new dynamic into the royal family altogether. Like Markle, the businessman is also divorced, and he has a 2-year old son, Wolfe. Children are delightful, but Princess Beatrice will have to really consider what it means to be a bonus mom and how the newfound media attention would affect Wolfe should she and Mozzi get more serious.

Could there be yet another royal wedding in 2019? Only time will tell if we need to dust off our hats and wedding accessories.
