If the reports that the Queen will host the reception at BP are true, then Iím predicting wedding at the abbey where Beatriceís parents were married.
Charles hosted an evening reception at BP for William and Catherine, it would not surprise me if the Queen allowed Andrew to do the same, never mind the optics. Alternately, Andrew could host the evening reception at Royal Lodge, Windsor is not that far from London and Beatrice and Edoís guests are presumably able to get from London to Windsor in the hours between an after wedding luncheon at BP and an evening bash at Windsor.

Very recent articles say theyíll have the Guards Chapel. I hope this is old news. Otherwise it is crazily sad. The last royal wedding in at least 10 years, not televised, no carriages, no info, in a church that resembles a crematorium. It couldnít be worse. With all the beauty London has to offer... letís pray itís fake/old news. I hope the BP luncheon is worth the price.

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...
The count and countess donít refer to Edoís parents anymore. Well not his mother. His parents were divorced in the mid 1980s and both have remarried.

Alex for all he is a count (an Italian count so no to an English ancestral home) grew up mainly in the UK. His family does own a villa in Italy but it seems to be open for public use (though do think he may be the owner). Alex lives some where in France with his current wife. So no British home.

Nikki was married to Christopher shale in 1989 until his death at Glastonbury. Christopher was good friends with the Camerons. She had a son Alby with him. She now lives with her Welsh sculptor husband in Oxford.

The closest thing to a British estate in his family belongs to his stepfather (current). But it seems to be leased out as an air bnb not a private home.

Definitely not the size or security needed for royal wedding.

As for Edo housing I agree it likely had most to do with security. Besides he was sharing a house with his ex prior. He certainly has the money for a home.


While a wedding in Italy would be beautiful Beatrice couldnít have her grandparents there. And it really would be nothing more then a destination wedding. Despite the family owning the villa and their title. Edo is born and raised in the UK. His father may have spent some summers in Italy but was mainly raised in the UK and even as British Olympic ski team. Though his father is an art collector and the villa art collection he is said to over see. Itís not like we are talking his personal home.

St Margaret's at Westminster looks so much nicer than the Guards Chapel. I just can't see them going for the Abbey, but the Guards' Chapel is just ... functional. Fair enough, but you don't expect a military chapel to be decorative, but it's not the nicest of places for a wedding.

While this is slightly off topic, i can see a time in the not so distant future where the heir or heir to the heir gets married in Westminster Abbey and everyone else gets married at Windsor. So George - the Abbey, Charlotte and Louis - St George's. Mind you, unless they get married really young, I don't expect to be around to say I told you so.

I had a look at where Beaís maternal grandparents married as I wondered if it might have been the guards chapel due to him being a lifeguard but no they married in St Margaretís Westminster. Major Ronald being a lifeguard does give her a link to guards chapel other than her father but Iím thinking St Margaretís maybe the place.

I know. Little OT: Italian noble titles are not recognized by the Republic but still are used and passed down. Simply are not present on official document released by the Republic. He is still a count and will always be and the title will pass down through male descendants. Even if he doesn’t like the title or whatever.

Anyway, at this point, better St. Margaret’s than the Guards Chapel. But my dream is still the quire of the Abbey. If only..

How elaborate do you think the engraved wedding invitations will be?

St Margaret's would be nice. I'd half-forgotten about all the Fergusons! Alice Ferguson used to have her picture in the paper sometimes, but you never hear about any of them these days. Eugenie didn't have any bridesmaids or page boys from that side of the family, but maybe there just aren't any kids of the right age.

Alice has a 7yr old daughter but maybe Eugenie & Beatrice don't see much of that side.

The wedding of HRH Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will take place on Friday 29 May 2020. The couple became engaged in Italy in September 2019.

Her Majesty The Queen has kindly given permission for the ceremony to take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.

The ceremony will be followed by a private reception, given by The Queen, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.

Finally, I am very relieved for them that they now can plan their fairytale-wedding.

If the wedding won't be broadcasted I believe that one reason can be Edoardos son. I guess Beatrice, Edoardo and the mother of the son want to protect him from the media.

From photographs of the interior, I think less than 100 guests can attend the ceremony. Quite saddening but I hope it is what she and Edo really wanted.

I hope we get some sort of TV coverage. I don't think people are that fussed for seeing the actual service, but there'll be disappointment if we don't get to see the guests arriving, if only to see what everyone's wearing!

It doesn't mean that they cannot invite a huge crowd to their reception, or that they cannot plan a larger bash on the Continent later in the summer.

I felt all along that a small ceremony followed by a large reception was the way to go.

Happy to see that it’s now official. Sounds like a good solution to me with a wedding at St James’ followed by a Garden Party at BP.
I was expecting a private wedding at St James’ or Hampton Court for Beatrice.
I’m sure there will be a grander party somewhere before or after the wedding for the extended ”friend-circle”.

However i personally would have preferred the other Chapel at St James’ (Queen’s Chapel) as it is much nicer to me.

Yay, that was my choice! The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace has an amazing history and was the wedding venue for:
  • Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (1840);
  • Victoria, Princess Royal and Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia (1858), future Emperor and Empress of Germany;
  • Prince George, Duke of York and Princess Victoria Mary of Teck (1893), future King George V and Queen Mary.

How many people does it hold? I must admit I am very surprised at how small the venue is. If they had wanted to keep it 'in house' the chapel royal at Hampton Court would have done the same job and it's also very beautiful and much bigger than this one.
