Re-marry, and it wasn't even the actual rital. It was a service of blessing and dedication, the actual marriage service took place in Windsor Guildhall.

Beatrice is not likely to just have an 'after party' but an actual dinner reception like her sister. And unlike Gabrielle, many senior royals are likely to be in attendance at the evening reception. Which adds again to security costs.

Thank you Skippy, for clearing it up. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out which future king was recently wed at St. George's!

The last future King to marry at St George's was Edward VII who married Princess Alexandra of Denmark at St George's.

His son and heir, the future George V, married at the Chapel Royal at St James, as did Queen Victoria.

True, talking British kings

But little bit of trivia, the last future king to marry there was Prince Gustaf Adolph of Sweden (future King Gustaf VI, grandfather of Carl Gustaf). He married his first wife Margaret of Connaught at St George's in 1905. They became the Crown princely couple two years later.


Royal weddings were certainly smaller in those days. George V had about 130 guests at his wedding. I can't imagine any senior royal now a days with that small of a list, certainly not the future king.

Any ideas in mind of who will Princess Beatrice be wearing at the wedding day? I'm really pretty excited about this wedding.

I am almost certain it won't be Elie Saab, which is a shame. Beatrice wore a Saab evening gown some years ago that made her look like a goddess. He understands how to dress women who are not a size 2.

I am excited about this wedding too...as well as a little anxious.

I'm still waiting on the wedding date! How long was it between Eugenie's engagement press release and them setting a date? From recollection, it wasn't long!

Does she really consider it her home church, though?
Other than Easter services and weddings, does Beatrice ever attend services there?

I suppose it is the home parish for Royal Lodge, but Beatrice doesn't live there any longer.

I just feel that Beatrice and Edo would prefer a London wedding, but perhaps that's just my imagination.

That's a good point, but to be honest none of the young Royals in the BRF appear to attend church services outside of Easter, Christmas, and weddings/funerals.

By "home parish" I think what is meant is that St.George's is located at Windsor, which is where the bride to be spent most of her childhood and primary school education.

The wedding won't be taking place in some random church.

The church will have a connection to the royal family and the couple - particularly Beatrice.

St George's is the most obvious as it is at Windsor where Beatrice grew up and went to school. It is the home of her grandparents and parents (Royal Lodge is within Windsor Great Park).

There are hundreds of lovely churches in England but they will marry somewhere with royal connections and there aren't really any in York (yes I know the Duke and Duchess of Kent married there but that was because the Duchess of Kent is a Yorkshire lass and so married in a church that was local to her).

Beatrice's alternative to Windsor is London. I doubt WA would be appropriate leaving very few other alternatives - St James' is possible as she has lived there for many years. It was good enough as a venue for Queen Victoria and George V as well.

Yes St Janes was appropriate when weddings were tiny, mainly family and politicians. Do you imagine Beatrice having 150 guests or less? Not likely.

St James is incredibly unlikely. I don’t see Beatrice and Edo having a wedding that small. I think it only holds about 100 guests.

Beatrice, of all the young Windsor Royals, runs with a very posh and cosmopolitan set. More than is the case for Eugenie and especially more than William and Harry.

The more "low key" wedding we keep reading about does not necessarily equal a smaller guest list. I expect her to invite at least as many people as Eugenie which was about 800 guests.

But more and more, I think she and Edo are planning a relatively small family ceremony at St George's or St. James, followed by a glittering blowout gala in Italy later in the summer where they will party with all their Continental aristocratic and society friends.

This makes the most sense imo.

That would seem logical to me too. A wedding at St. George's (similar to Eugenie's) would be appropriate for a princess of the blood and a British royal wedding with all the British trimmings and at Windsor, convenient for her grandparents. Maybe a wedding lunch hosted by the Queen at the castle afterwards. Even maybe a party at Royal Lodge hosted by her parents.

The big, glittering, star studded blowout in Italy for friends of theirs denotes that Bea is a private citizen and with a big party on in Italy, no complaining about "taxpayer" money being spent etc.

If Beatrice hasn't already thought of this and the plans aren't in the works, I hope she sees your comment, because I think this is an excellent idea: keep the actual wedding relatively low key, and go all out for an Italian celebration a bit later.

According to this, Beatrice is considering a London venue.
I think that might be better than a low-key wedding at St. George's Chapel.

Have a smaller wedding and have a large party later on.

At this point, having a low profile private wedding is the best thing the couple can do to avoid negativity that may ruin their big day.



I just hope Edoardo doesn't bow out now that his in-laws are falling out of grace. I am not saying it is going to happen, but I just can't trust him (I mean, Edoardo) to have true feelings for Beatrice. Hopefully I am wrong.

Edo would have to be a pretty rotten person to withdraw now, and I don't think he will.

However, wouldn't a London venue have the same sort of problems that has been discussed before, viz large numbers of intrusive photographers, streets blocked off nearby, extra security needed, etc?
