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?

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.

Why so? Are you implying that you suspect him to be insincere?

I would like the wedding to be in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. I pity it if it does not materialize. But what matters is that it goes well and is happy.

I don't think he can, without looking like a cad.
Imagine the fallout, now that the engagement has been publicly announced!

Though perhaps he could postpone it and back out later (but he'd come across as worse than Dave Clark). I think he will stay.

On a more abstract level: Why an engagement at all, if you are not allowed to have second thoughts? In my humble opinion an engagement is not the time between proposal and wedding alone...

That said, I think the cited Daily Mail article was just written to stirr eventually something up. It is pressuring in tone and "guiding" a man into a marriage might be more a case of "horse whispering" than beating the whip...

I still hope they may go for the Chapel of All Saints which is basically in the front garden of Royal Lodge. Be nice to be somewhere a bit different from St George's, especially if the wedding is going to have to be smaller on an "official" side than Eugenie's.

On all the pictures he looks proud, full of Satisfaction , proud to be among the British Royals., looking to the Paps etc..
I absolutely don't like him.
I cannot imagine his wedding with Beatrice will be the same as Eugenie's ?

What an odd, pointless article by the Fail.

Princess Beatrice will have a low key, non televised and privately funded wedding.

I am STUNNED speechless.

ETA: Unpopular opinion time. Edoardo is a decent young man. He loves Beatrice and will not abandon her because she has an idiot for a father.

There are MUCH easier ways for a guy like him to social climb, if that is indeed what he is doing.

Edo has known the York family for years, long before he started dating Beatrice. And its not like Andrew has had clean hands, and he and Fergie have ben scandal free, before now. He was more then aware of what he was getting into when he started dating her. I have seen no sign that Edo was a shallow fame hunter who would drop her because she was no longer as high up.

I don't see some small London venue. If anything, the security concerns may be higher after all of this. The media will be more anxious to see this. Paying for private security, and a private venue in London, will be far more expensive.

As is this 'she will have a tiny wedding in shame'. Beatrice and Edo have nothing to be ashamed of. And they have a lot of friends and family to share the day with.

The newspaper just loves to come up with new and stupid stories to sell to the lambs who follow them every where. Heck there were stories of Harry and Meghan eloping at one point. That's what the tabloids do.

A smaller wedding venue would be best. I think the Windsors don't want the optics of protest signs outside the location and some of thencrowd booing and name calling the father of the bride as he escorts his daughter into the church.

Edo won't cut and run even if he wanted to. He as already been accused of hooking up with Beatrice while he was with his fiancée/ mother of his child and in turn dumping her. If Edo drops Beatrice now he wins the Cad of the Year award.

The York princesses supposedly runs with a cosmopolitan set. Well situations like their dad's mess is when you find out who your real friends are. The media will scour the guest list and track down the venue to see who shows up.

Private or public I hope Beatrice and Edo have the wedding they want.

I'm sure the Gloucester girls used one or another of the palace chapels in grounds of st James? Could that be a possibility. With a dinner/reception at Claridges/Ritz?

Personally I'm not sure a wedding in city centre is what they will want. I think a small chapel/church on one of the estates but thats just IMO.

As I am not familiar with CoE rules, I am curious on the possibility of a smaller wedding in the garden at Royal Lodge (canopy or tent to keep out the photographers). I ask because we had a minister one time who would only marry couples in the main sanctuary of our church. There was a lovely little courtyard between the church and education building that would have worked for about 10 people. I made the comment that it would be lovely for a very small wedding but someone told me our pastor would not do it. This was not a denominational policy, just his.

Don't quote me on this but its my understanding that with the CoE, a wedding ceremony has to be held on "sacred ground". The gardens at Royal Lodge wouldn't fit the bill for this. Any consecrated chapel or church would have to be where the actual ceremony is held.

Again for that I would suggest the Royal Chapel of All Saints, its literally opposite Royal Lodge, behind the gates and away from the cameras.

A link to it on google maps in below, the white building to the left is Royal Lodge.

Any weddings outside of a registry office or church has to meet certain rules, such as being available to other weddings on so many days. This is why Charles and Camilla couldn't get married in Windsor Castle as planned and had to go to the Windsor Town Hall.

All Saints holds 180 people comfortably, 250 if you cram them in. Does anyone think these two are going to have that small of a wedding???


St George's is within Windsor walls. They can keep out the media and public from the events no problem. And its nice and close to Royal Lodge for a reception like her sister had.

A religious ceremony would have to be in a church.

A civil ceremony would

1 require a Fixed structure (not simply a tent) for the couple to marry under
2 it would have to become a registered wedding venue for 3 years. Meaning open to the public for weddings for 3 years. I don't see Andrew allowing his gardens to be for public weddings.

I still believe that Beatrice will have her wedding at St. George's and it won't be much different than Eugenie's was. The Queen will still hold a wedding breakfast at Windsor Castle and there'll be a evening reception or a party the next day even at Royal Lodge.

The best thing that can be done right now is to *not* change the way anything would have been done even if Andrew had won the Nobel Peace Prize. I think the Queen is astute enough to realize that this wedding is all about Beatrice and Edo and its their day and nothing should overshadow it.

The public and the media will do and think what they like surrounding the wedding and Bea's father but its very possible to give the happy couple their own day and treat the opinions expressed outside of castle walls as "white noise" and not have them affect decisions or plans or the happiness of the occasion.
