Sure. Donít even know if we will ever know where and when or see the invitations. Really scared we might not see anything at all than just a few pictures.

Anyway yes, Windsor is less costly for everyone. Maybe the BP reception is the one in the evening, with Windsor ceremony and reception in the morning. That would change things a bit. But idk. I think that taking a whatever church in London (big or small) will require giants costs of security. Thatís why, despite similar weddings in Windsor we are all bored of, it is still the best regal and cost efficient option for her and the monarchy, in particular in this sad circumstance.

I think it would be a bad idea to have any wedding festivity at Royal Lodge. You would have Andrew being the host. I think you need to downplay Andrew's involvement/role in the wedding. And I think the couple realizes that hence his absence at her engagement party in December.

You cannot down play Andrew's involvement, he is the father of the bride.

Yes, you can. There is a big difference to being a guest at his daughter's reception vs. being the host of it at his home.

Exactly. As far as he is not proved guilty, he is innocent. And Beatrice should not pay for the mistakes made by her parents, so letís have Andrew the role he deserves as loving father.

As it's Bea's family home, it's none of the taxpayers' business what they do there. It doesn't affect us & it can be kept completely private. It probably wouldn't be a good idea to publish photos of the party (why draw attention to it?) but other than that, it's irrelevant to the public.

Andrew's absence at the engagement party was probably due to it being held in a public place & how that would attract the press.

He isn't innocent of a friendship with a convicted sex offender that he stated he doesn't regret. None of my suggestions have anything to do with giving Andrew what he deserves as a father. I'm mainly thinking about what I'm willing to pay for and also minimising any negative PR for the working BRF members.

I think miss whirley's suggestio of minimizing the Duke's role in his daughter's wedding was addressing the latter concern.

But did Sarah, Duchess of York and the other parents of British royal brides and grooms likewise host receptions for their children's weddings? I am not sure that is a requirement.

I imagine none of us can speak for the country as it's difficult to know what most people think. I can tell you about my own family and social circles though and amongst them, there is very little interest other than "not another wedding to pay for!" type of grumbles. Many of them barely know who Beatrice is until jogged by "you know, the one with the funny wedding hat". I think that hat is more famous than she is!

It’s certainly not something that everyone’s talking about, as they were with William and Kate or Harry and Meghan, and I very much doubt that we’ll see Tesco selling Union flag paper plates and Marks & Spencer selling royal wedding biscuits, as we did for those weddings. The boxes of biscuits “to mark the marriage of” always make me smile! But, yes, there’s always a certain amount of interest in anyone well-known getting married – a lot of people like to see the wedding dress, and the bridesmaids’ dresses, and pictures of famous people attending.

With all due respect to Beatrice, there’s no more interest than there would be in a top sports player or pop star or other well-known person getting married – the TV crews practically camped outside the church when Andy Murray married Kim Sears! - but that degree of interest is still reasonably high. I don't say that anyone'll talk about it beforehand, or look forward to it, but I think a lot of people will be disappointed if we don't get to see plenty of pictures.

We canít say. But saying that, if Andrew is the host of his daughterís wedding party that takes place at his home, it should be avoided and Andrewís role minimized, I canít agree. Being the host of a party is not a crime nor having friends with a terrible past (legally speaking, maybe from a PR pov I can agree). We know very little about it, so I personally trust the Royal Family who showed full support to Andrew. If he hosts it thereís nothing wrong at all to me.
However the evening party can be also at Edoís house, for what we know. Maybe he has a giant mansion somewhere, I wouldnít exclude it 😂

If he had a giant mansion, I don't think he'd be living at St. James Palace with Beatrice.

I think they should go with one of these two options:

1. Private wedding at St. James for family only, followed by large reception at BP.

2. Private wedding at the Abbey, with no carriages, guardsmen, or balcony appearance, followed by BP reception. They could announce that security costs will be covered by the RF.

Perhaps the evening party in London could then be hosted by a friend, similar to Lady Gabriella's.

I do not think the BRF should (and will) announce that they will fund the costs of security for events they attend, irrespective of whether those events are public engagements or private events. It is the duty of the government to keep key members of the BRF secure, and there is no need to compromise on that.

I meant his parents, as Count and Countess they may have some mansion or villa somewhere in the countryside. Just not to rely on the Royal Lodge like Eugenie did. Also I think B lives in St. Jamesís palace for security reasons, more than others.

I hope for option 2. at the Abbey. And I agree, if you have and want a monarchy, you cannot expect they come for free. Security is the only thing taxpayers pay directly...

There's a Mapello Mozzi family castle in northern Italy, where Edo's dad spent time as a child. It looks absolutely amazing, but there's been no suggestion that the wedding will be held in Italy.

It's an amazing Palazzo. If Edo and Beatrice are not planning to use it as part of their nuptial celebrations, it's a shame.

Beatrice would want to have her grandparents see her making wedding vows, and they will not travel to Italy.

Yes itís a giant palace, but I donít know if itís in his parents/grandparentsí possession. But I think Edo and family donít think themselves as Italians.

Maybe a garden party there would be nice. But I donít think they have any affection or many friends down there in Italy. Who knows...

I would love it too. It's so ornate and gorgeous
