I agree completely but I'm still so sad for her. She just can't seem to catch a break and her wedding plans appear to be yet another casualty of circumstances beyond her control. If anyone deserves to have an absolutely lovely wedding that is exactly what she wants, it's her.

It definitely is sad for Bea and Edo.

I don't think she's thinking of her responsibilities as 'a princess' but more as a sensible human being.

I really feel for Princess Beatrice. Sheís had to postpone for reasons beyond her control. I really hope when she marries, itís the wedding she wants, not dictated by circumstances she canít control.

Unless she waits a long time I doubt if she will be able to have a big wedding. Even a medium sized one.

"In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May," they added.

"They are particularly conscious of government advice in relation to both the wellbeing of older family members and large gatherings of people. Therefore, the planned reception in the Buckingham Palace Gardens will not take place.

"The couple will carefully consider government advice before deciding whether a private marriage might take place amongst a small group of family and friends."
Interesting; it seems that to the couple, being married is a higher priority than the ability to hold a grand ceremony or any celebrations.

I feel that would be the sensible thing to do. It might mean that the queen isn't abele to attend... I don't think Philip will. but it would mean they are married and they can always hold a big party later on... I hope that they DO feel that getting married is more important than the wedding celebrations.

Well...quite. a family member was due to get married in a massive ceremony a week earlier. It's now been cancelled even though i did think a small ceremony would be the way to go but they obviously want the whole big thing. It depends what people want. And a beautiful obviously just wants to be married and to shoot with the rest.

I agree; and I could see the wish to have children probably within the not to distant future factor into that decision (especially if they'd like not too big of a gap between any child of the two of them and Wolfie).

I agree. And if she agrees to yet another delay, i hope she will decide to have the bigger wedding she had originally planned.

Really starting to feel sad and frustrated for Beatrice.

I''m not sure he is that close with his biologiclal father. Edo didnt even bother to introduce Beatrice when they saw each other last autumn that says a lot on thier father-son relationship and his father only met his ex once or so says his dad when he did a self serving article for the DM usually I dont bother with the DM but Edo's dad seemed to have done some sort of interview with them. Heck, Eduardo has said his step father was more of a real father to him at his Step father's memorial service, that says a lot

Why? She's still going to be able to get married. She is wealthy enough to have a big party in 6 months time, when the whole Corona thing is over.. we hope. She's not goig to lose a deposit... Plenty of people have had to cancel or curtail weddings and other events.

I believe you are right. However, while the Reception at BP has been postponed indefinitely, nothing was said about the wedding itself which HM had given permission to be held in the Chapel Royal by St James Palace.

Yes, indeed he said his stepfather was the "only" father he had ever known.

The announcement quoted in message #1159 seems to indicate that if the wedding is not postponed it will be extremely downsized.

True.
Beatrice probably already has the dress, bridesmaid dresses, etc.
So really, she might want to wait for a larger wedding.

Otoh, she and Edo may have the tiny private ceremony, followed by a large party once life is back to normal.

Either choice is fine.

I hope the Virus has calmed down by May but I also hope that Beatrice, if she has a smaller wedding, might share the happy event via film for public viewing.

A garden party celebration can always happen later.

The Church of England has now said 5 people maximum for weddings - so that's just the couple themselves, the vicar, and 2 witnesses. 2 witnesses are required by law, so that's the legal minimum - it's not even possible to have all 4 parents there, never mind siblings and friends. I doubt they'll go ahead now. So sorry for everyone affected.

The CoE has limited all ceremonies including funerals in the days ahead:

No. They may be okay with small, but a wedding without even just their immediate family?? No. 5 people wouldn't even allow for Wolfie to attend, as he is too young to be a witness. I can't see them marrying with just a vicar and one parent a piece for witness.

Really there is no rush. And everyone 'its a shame she has to put on hold'. It would be worse if she didn't get the wedding she dreamed of. Its better she wait and get her dream wedding after all she has been through, then be rushed and only marry with 2 witnesses. Unless she suddenly becomes pregnant, and they want to be wed before its born, there is no real worry.

Maybe it's better to wait after all. I get the distinct feeling that Beatrice wanted to start a family very quickly as she will be 32 this summer and Edo will enter his late 30's in the Fall.

No one can say that this couple has not been tested. Hopefully it will all go well for them.
