Oh not meant as 'correction' ..just tossing more info into the pot.

I'm waiting for the tabloids to re-hash the stories that came out when it was known Edo and Beatrice were dating. I heard there is one already starting up again.

Sarah, Duchess of York is a godmother of Alby Shale, Edo's half-brother.

More information on Edo's paternal family. He also has South American ancestry (Uruguay).

It's nice that you mentioned this. Yes both Beatrice and Eugenie were also born at The Portland Hospital.

Now I know of Edo's family's strong links to the Yorks (even their children being born in the same hospital), it seems almost inevitable that he and Beatrice would cross paths.
Interesting to hear that he has South American heritage.

Guess we'll have to see if Archie marries someone born at the Portland then.

Fascinating background. I think there are going to be a LOT of Italian guests at this wedding.

And since the Castel Mapelli Mozzi is still in the possession of the groom's family, maybe Edo and Beatrice can spend time there during their honeymoon.

Actually he was born 19 November 1983 at Portland Hospital. See the birth announcement screenshot I included in post.

The Rwanda cricket was the brainchild of Christopher Shale, Edo’s step-father. He died suddenly before he had it going. His family and friends set up the charity in his memory; Mr. Shale's son Alby Shale is currently on the board of trustees. Edo and half-brother Alby Shale are listed as co-founders.

Ms. Christopher Shale did a lot of volunteering work in Rwanda, including being one of the founding fathers of Project Umubano, charities devoted to improving the lives of survivors of the Rwanda's genocide.

Although cricket is not as popular as soccer in Africa, it is played a lot at high level in mostly former British Colonies (Anglophones) such countries like South Africa, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. Now it seems the sport is spreading into the Francophones countries.

Edo's great-grandfather Sir Robert Burrows and Beatrice's great-grandfather the Duke of York (later George VI) were friends. The Duke sometimes stayed with the Burrows family at their home, Bonis Hall:

https://books.google.com/books?id=QTmIAwAAQBAJ&pg=PT108

https://books.google.com/books?id=awzXAwAAQBAJ&pg=PR8

Edo's mother's family were (for the most part) upper middle class: company directors, merchants, and farmers. Nikki was raised in the Church of England but she comes from a long line of nonconformists (Baptists & Methodists) as well as Scottish Presbyterians.

In addition to Sir Robert Burrows KBE, Edo's maternal ancestors include:

(1) Emerson Muschamp Bainbridge, founder of Bainbridge's department store
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bainbridge%27s

(2) Charles Campbell, wealthy merchant in Melbourne, Australia

(3) William Arnot, tea merchant in Glasgow, father of Frederick Stanley Arnot, missionary in Africa

I should also add - Edo's step-grandfather (his maternal grandmother's second husband), Col. Greville Wyndham Tufnell, was a member of The Queen’s Body Guard of the Yeomen of the Guard from 1993-2002. He was appointed CVO [Commander of the Royal Victorian Order] on his retirement.

He is pictured here: Officer Biographies

The groom is often described as Italian, but he has just as much illustrious British ancestry as Continental.
