We just don't know where things will be at by then. If, hopefully, the worst is over and things are getting better, a Royal wedding may well cheer people up. If it's like it is now, with many lives being lost to this horrible virus every day, it would be very poor form to have a big celebration, or even a small one.

The Queen has opted out, and will no longer be participating in Princess Beatrice’s wedding ceremony.

https://www.thenews.com.pk/amp/62954...trices-wedding

"According to an official palace statement from the royal family, it is a “sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances, changes are being made to the Queen‘s diary commitments in the coming weeks.”

The statement further went on to say, “In consultation with the Medical Household and Government, Her Majesty’s forthcoming visits to Cheshire and Camden will be rescheduled."

“Audiences will continue as usual. Other events will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with the appropriate advice.”

I am unable to confirm this with other sites including the official Palace website. Perhaps only speculation at this time considering the Queen's diary has been changed.

The article is BS. It uses The Royal Household’s latest statement about the cancellation of her two upcoming visits this week, and potential diary changes, to somehow insinuate she won’t be attending her granddaughters wedding.

Absolutely ridiculous.

"Queen Elizabeth may reportedly skip the royal wedding of Princess Beatrice on May 29 despite previous confirmation that she will be there together with the other members of the British clan.

This week, England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty released a statement regarding the deadly coronavirus outbreak and said that the pandemic will most likely reach its peak within the next 10 to 14 weeks. Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s royal wedding is slated to take place 11 weeks from now.


Shortly after Whitty’s statement, Buckingham Palace also gave the public update regarding Her Majesty.

“As a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances, changes are being made to the Queen’s diary commitments in the coming weeks. In consultation with the medical household and government, Her Majesty’s forthcoming visits to Cheshire and Camden will be rescheduled. Audiences will continue as usual,” the Palace said.

As of late, there is still no word as to whether or not Princess Beatrice’s wedding will push through. However, some events in the United Kingdom have already been canceled."

The Guardian story predicting major impact of COVID-19 in the UK

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...e-TONIGHT.html

Looks like a lot of royal events may be impacted.

Right, at this point speculation as you pointed out using the current cancellations. However, in regard to the impact of COVID-19 in 10 weeks from now, and current investigations by WHO and Dr. Fauci of the NIH, it's going to get much worse before it gets better, i.e. graphs of China, S. Korea and Italy. So, anything is possible, its just that the Queen is high high risk or higher if that's possible.

So not really total BS or absolute ridiculous. What's likely, changes in the wedding plans so the entire British Royal Family isn't exposed to SARS-COV-2, the novel coronavirus causing the current Pandemic known as COVID-19.

No-one knows what the situation will be at the end of May. I don't know why the papers are speculating about this. If things do get much worse, I can't see the wedding going ahead as planned - no-one will feel like celebrating anyway, and it wouldn't look very nice to have a royal wedding at a time of crisis. I feel so sorry for Beatrice and Edo, but many other couples are also being faced with having to postpone their weddings.

The only thing we know the queen's public events which cant be controlled the exposure to the virus have been cancelled.

Private family events are another matter. If the Virus is still as bad in May, the wedding may be postponed. If not it may just be a simple family ceremony, with a proper wedding later on with their friends and more. In that case it would be easy to control those who come, and make sure none are ill. And control the queen's possible exposure to any illness.

Making predictions based off her cancelling official events next week, is pure speculation at best.

We don't even know how many people Beatrice and Edo want at their wedding. As the chapel only holds 150 we know that is the maximum but they may only want immediate family - parents, grandparents, siblings and their partners which would bring the number down to around 20.

Of course they may want the 150 but that isn't a given.

Its highly unlikely they wouldn't at least have their close family there, which usually includes aunts/uncles and cousins. It may end up being what they can invite if the virus stops more guests and they go on with the ceremony. But its highly unlikely what they originally planned to do. If they were planning on less then 20 guests, they could have easily had a much smaller venue.

There aren't any 'much smaller' chapels that are royal peculiars though. 150 people is a very small church in London.

The queen's chapel at St James. The private chapel at Buckingham palace. Could pull a Lord Freddie and have used the slightly smaller chapel at Hampton court palace. Could have married outside London at one of the chapels near one of the queen's other homes.

Exactly! Would be better than hanging on four months on end.

People are dying, the expected level of deaths for plus65 is 50% ,
no one should seriously think about family meetings or whatever, people just need to accept the facts.
Does the UK not have restrictions for gatherings with more than 50 people?
Anyone who thinks Covid will end in a couple of weeks is wrong and believe me I am optimistic personality

I do wonder if having a quiet go at a registry and then living as a married couple would mean a catastrophe for B&E? This is probably going to last for 3 years (German government predict) , if the two want children it' s time to be realistic.
By the way many others will have to do so aswell. And they could invite the most important people who are in the UK but obey some rules to distancing, no hugging .... and still have a nice wedding. They have mire possibilities than any of us. And as soon as a certain amount of people are dIng in the Uk, the public will be even less delighted with their wedding than ever.
But as always we will have to wait&see😉

The chapel royal at Hampton Court is much bigger than the one at St. James' Palace, I have been in it.

Possibly there will be film of the wedding afterall - to allow crowds and older guests to stay home amid the virus outbreak.

From Yahoo:

Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi has called on British supermarkets to make a special exception for their elderly shoppers during the coronavirus outbreak. Princess Beatrice's fiancé took to Twitter to share a suggestion he had seen on social media to help protect the over-70s. He wrote: "A great idea just seen on Twitter. Would it be possible for the supermarkets to only allow elderly shoppers in first, so that they can shop before the rest of us, as the shops will be clean/ disinfected, and before the shelves are all cleared. #elderlyhour."

That is happening here in Australia (from 7 - 8 am) - elderly and the disabled. How they will enforce that we have yet to see but both the major supermarkets are doing this from later this week.

Its only starting in Britain right now and it is highly likely that the wedding will be postponed or at least not take place as originally planned.

I am afraid that Beatrice's wedding will be postponed . With each hour new measures are being put in place regarding social distancing in the society at large. This does not bode well for a wedding . The UK is following a different strategy than the rest of the world to keep this controlled so we will have to see how effective this will be. Regardless they will see a surge in the weeks to come and a wedding would be the last thing that would be appropriate. The amount of resources that would be needed for even a toned down royal wedding would be seen badly in the weeks to come.People will be very sick and dying unfortunately , we only need to look at Italy to see where this virus can lead. Hopefully we will be in a more positive situation in the fall.

Or they could forgo a big wedding and get married privately with a few close family in attendance. they can have a party later.
