While we are waiting for more news of the wedding, the next best thing is the groom's family. What a soap opera-even though a very posh one!

Three that I know of:
(1) 1978 - Nicola Burrows (Edo's mother), divorced
(2) 1994 - Fiona M. Wilson
(3) Ebba Margaretha Antonie von Eckermann

But he was wife #3's fourth husband.

No, it seems he had three. His third wife had four husbands...

Edo's mother is currently married to her third husband as well. However, her second husband died about 8 years ago. So, she divorced only once.

And if so, formally I would say she is no longer his stepmother, nor are her children out of either one of her previous marriages his stepsiblings.
I believe you're right. Her mother's 2018 death announcement lists Margareta [Ebba goes by her middle name] without a spouse but her brother Hans is listed with his wife Kerstin.

She has one older sister, one younger brother, and one younger sister:

#1 Carolyn Elizabeth Burrows (born 1954 died 2015) married 1976 to Graham N. Peck

#2 Richard D. Burrows (born 1959)

#3 Philippa A. Burrows (born 1965) married 1991 to Mark David Wiggin

Anything known of this second wife? I have found no mention of her outside your posts.

No one has answered whether or not Edo speaks Italian. I haven't found any mention in his bio details online. I would suspect that he does speak Italian. It's not unusual for many well-educated Europeans to speak multiple languages.

Edo's Instagram includes some great photos of the properties he develops and sells:

I'm attaching my source. I know nothing else about her.

EDIT: Just found another website that mentions Fiona Mapelli Mozzi:

I asked the same questions and got no answer, but my guess based on Edo's education, background and social circle is that he is probably at least proficient in the Italian language.

But it's unfortunately not uncommon for many well educated British people not to speak anything but English. I have a friend who has a similar family history except Swedish and French and she speaks neither fluently but is highly educated and has relatives in both countries etc. I might be doing him a big disservice but I don't think it's a given. It's one of the areas British people/the education system gets lazy compared to our continental counterparts, even if connections. Especially if he hasn't spent a lot of time with his father compared to his step father, I believe there were rumours about that when they first started dating.

Sure, the same is true of English-speaking Americans.

See also 'Phil the Greek' who, while born in Greece is as British as tweed. Having lived here since he was 7 and been in the British armed services.

I think he's just as likely to speak French or Spanish as he is to speak Italian.
He grew up in the UK; probably has visited Italy and has some relatives there but doesn't have a home there.
