Wow! That is the most beautiful declaration.

Well, this is cause for hope:

Although I do find Daria’s choice of words odd, “I ...look forward to uniting our families” suggests an inability to recognize boundaries. Edo and Beatrice are creating a family & her son will be a part of that family, but her, not so much I would think. But perhaps I’m reading too much into her choice of words.
Being a stepchild myself, I always hope that the adults involved can behave like, well, adults for the best interest of the child/ren.

I thought the congratulations was odd too. The blending of families? Her son will be the stepchild of a princess of Britain. That doesn't give her a tie to the royals.

I think that’s what she meant. Her son is getting a stepmom, so her relationship with Ed and Bea will have to be established on a good footing.

I am so very happy that Beatrice has found a man to love her and not her title. To be loved unconditionally is a rare gift and I wish them all the joy they can handle.

I feel badly for Dara. If her statement had been a snarly "Good luck to Ed-he will need it"! no one could blame her. But she is now in almost the same position Princess Beatrice was in when HER boyfriend of ten years absconded with a model only months after their breakup.

Only Dara has her little son to consider as well.

And she is quite right...young Christopher Wolf is her family, and he will soon become the stepson of a member of the British Royal family. So...in a manner of speaking two families will combine.

Just because i am thrilled for Beatrice and Edo doesn't mean I don't see what a "prize" his ex is..she is the stunning Harvard educated daughter of a NASA scientist. I don't think she will be single for long!

I do have to admit that when I first heard that Beatrice and Edo had known each other for a long time before they even started dating romantically, I had a feeling this was going to be it for them and they'd realize how right for each other they are and take the relationship to a marriage level. They knew they liked each other for years. They've been friends with each other for years. There was a seed planted a long time ago just waiting for the right time to sprout. Being friends first before becoming romantically involved is a huge asset to a relationship in my book. There's something there to build on rather than just the flush of discovering they're in love and everything is new and wonderful. Stability comes from friendship.

In this day and age of baby mamas and baby daddies, its in the best interest of the child if all of the adults can act like adults and get along with each other. Wolfie has a mom that loves him and a dad that loves him and now a new stepmom-to-be that will love him. I seriously don't believe they'd be taking this step into marriage unless they felt that Wolfie would be comfortable with it. When this kind of situation arises with children from a past relationship, the most important thing is that the child feels love and acceptance without animosity between the parents. Actually, this is just my opinion but situations like this one really help to assure that the marriage they're getting into is being done for the right reasons of love, honor and respect between both parties and not marrying because "they had to" or "for the sake of the child".

Perfectly stated, I agree 100 per cent. I also had a hunch that this was The One as soon as I learned they had known one another for years.

Just saw where James Middleton signed onto the congratulations...he follows Edo on Instagram.

James seems a lovely, gentle guy. I hope he is a guest at the "Beado" wedding, and that he will be making his own announcement soon.

Well this is a pleasant surprise.

I have always had an affinity for the York Princesses, I thought they they got a bad rap for who their parents are/were.

Beatrice looks ecstatic and Edo looks happy. They both seem over the moon.

Great pictures by Eugenie. I love how Sarah and Andrew say they have been blessed (paraphrasing here) to have two great son in laws. Very lucky indeed!

Maybe on his dad's weekend we might see Wolfie at the Trooping now!

Sarah and Andrew made a spectacular botch out of their marriage and their respective reputations. But when it comes to Royal parenting I think they deserve some type of MVP award. Neither daughter has ever caused them a day of scandal or shame. They revere their parents and one another. They remain unswerving in their loyalty to their family.

Each young woman has chosen men who not only are decent, but who would make even the most status conscious parents proud.

The Duke and Duchess of York are quite right to be bursting with pride as Sarah pointed out but also relief.

Congratulations to Princess Beatrice, Edoardo, and their families!

A royal wedding! Yay!

I don't follow the British royals so I didn't find anything odd about Dara's congratulations. It's not like Beatrice and Edoardo only have a relationship with the son, excluding his mother. They all have to interact/get along for the child.

Edo is an accomplished man and he is dashing and attractive. Edo and Bea deserves each other.

Well, there are some differences, Beatrice & Dave’s relationship was 10 years, so very long term, whereas Dara and Edo had their son very early in their relationship & at most they were together 3 years, perhaps less. Plus, we still don’t know when they stopped being a couple, I’ve read that they’d not been a couple for 6 months before Edo and Beatrice started dating. I agree that Dara appears to be an accomplished & very attractive woman.
Can anyone enlighten me as to the origin of Edo’s son’s last name? His mother’s last name is Huang, his father’s is Mozzi, yet the child’s name is Christopher Woolf. Where does the Woolf come from?

I don't see how Dara's father plays a roll in her desirability. People aren't screening egg donors. Her own beauty and education yes, her dad working for NASA won't win dates.

Dave didn't abscond with a model anymore then Edo. They were broken up. Free to start a new relationship. Makes it sound like the guys ran away middle of night with a woman.

I am thrilled for the couple and their families.

Stunning photos. I love the black and white photos.

Like it or not, she will have to be involved in their family as she's Wolfie's mother. I think she was talking about the term "blended families" which is fairly common. It doesn't mean a desire to cash in on their family or connection. She's trying to be pleasant and an adult about the situation, which is for the best obviously.

I do think it seems like he jumped from on to the other double quick, even if there was no over lap and his ex was obviously taken aback at first, but since it's not my relationship I can't really say anything. But it has made me side eye the dating for only a year. Yes I know they've known each other a while. I hope they aren't rushing into this because Bea is feeling pressure to be married and they've really thought long term, for everyone's sake. They do look really happy.

Considering Louise and James being of the next generation, I meant age-wise. Louise, Edward and Sophie's eldest, is from 2003; Eugenie, Sarah and Andrew's youngest, from 1990. More than 10 years difference.


As the Queen's grandchildren they are not of course and of the same generation as all the others.

That’s like saying Charles and Edward are from a different generation as the age gap between those two is more than that between Eugenie and Louise.

Congrats to Bea and Edo. Certainly wasn’t expecting that so soon but I guess when you know you know.

Edo and his family have been friends of the York family for a number of years. Edo attended Eugenies wedding , if he had still been with his ex would she not have been invited as his + 1. I think it is telling that she was not at the wedding.
