They may be staying there for the very reason they are working on a house. If they bought something they could simply move. Building, even if simply renovating and restoring, takes time. They have the money to move out of a palace property without built in security, unlike Eugenie.

And yes Edo is older. He is 37 and she 32.

Though they likely would have moved in similar circles, they likely got to know each other through his late first stepfather Christopher Shale. Christopher was friends with Andrew and Fergie, and the whole York family attended his funeral. But yes she was involved with Dave for such a long time, and from a young age (she was 18 when it started).

As for the wedding it wasn't all covid. They had always planned on a small private wedding, having chosen the royal chapel which would not allow a massive wedding (think its 150 guests if that). They had always wanted something more low key as far as royal weddings. It just got downsized even more by the pandemic.

The ring was beautiful. I also love the touch that one of his gifts to her was having a statue made by his stepfather. Commissioning a private piece of art, especially from someone special like that, is amazing.
The commissioning of the statue for Beatrice is quite wonderful, and in keeping with Edo's artistic sensibilities and his devoted thoughtfulness.

There had been reports that Beatrice always wished for a smaller wedding. Still, if not for her father Andrew's dramas, he might well have gotten his way again and pulled out all the stops for a large wedding for Beatrice in the same vein as Eugenie's. I believe it was Andrew who had pushed for the full Monty for Eugenie, including carriage ride and television coverage. I don't think Eugenie necessarily cared about guest size, carriage ride and tv coverage, just mostly Andrew, and Sarah too probably.

I don't think Beatrice was planning to ever have her ceremony held at St. George's Chapel. I believe she was hoping to select a comfortably-sized venue in London with the reception at Buckingham Palace, as eventually reported. I believe the wedding venue was eventually set for St. James' Chapel Royal when it was decided to downsize and keep everything very low key due to Andrew's ongoing scandal. And then, of course, even those plans had to be called off completely due to the pandemic.

The subsequent privately held ceremony that was conducted under-the-radar at the small All Saint's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Great Park, turned out to be delightfully refreshing. Of course, Beatrice surely wished more friends and family could have attended. Still, the privacy and intimate quality was probably welcomed by Bea & Edo. Perhaps they will still hold a larger celebration for their extended family and friends when pandemic restrictions are eased and social distancing is no longer necessary.

Princess Beatrice's rep has responded to rumors that she and her husband broke COVID-19 lockdown rules for dinner out with four other people:

“This was a midweek Wednesday evening, work related, business development dinner, it was held in compliance with all government guidelines, the dinner was held in the early evening and all parties left in good time before the government curfew. "Strict masks were worn in line with the government advice."
Isn't social distancing part of the government guidelines? If so, than the above contains at least one lie.

Yes, that's true. But I am not sure what are you trying to communicate. That if a restaurant is open that all customers comply with all the government regulations such as being socially distanced all the time? While we have evidence that Beatrice was touching a friend almost from top to toe in one of the pictures - so with 0 cm/inch distance...

Our university is also 'open'. Nonetheless, earlier today I had to tell a group of students that they had to comply with the government regulations, such as wearing a mask (which half of them did), socially distancing (which clearly the one student sitting on another's lap didn't do - and nor did most others), and limit the group's size to 10 people (there were 15-20).

Plus the fact that while eating its necessary to take off masks.. so I think that eating out is or shoudl be restricted to a few people from the same household....

True - but as I don't know the rules in Britain about eating out in restaurants (which if permitted requires removing your mask) I didn't want to make assumptions on whether that in itself should be considered 'not complying with the regulations'.

Most restaurants have closed down again, due to the latest lockdown.. but up to a few days ago it was possible to eat out in a restaurant. However since it DOES entail removing your mask to eat, then not touching or sitting too close to your fellow diners etc would surely be a reasonable precaution to take...

You don't have to wear a mask if you're actually seated at a table, because you'll be eating and drinking!


In a "Tier 2" area, which London was at the time (it's now Tier 3), you aren't supposed to eat indoors with anyone outside your household, but there's an exception for "business meetings". I find it a bit stupid - surely a business meeting, if it really can't be held by Zoom, can be held in business premises, where there members of the public around - but, whatever, those are the rules. The question is whether a "meeting" where someone brings their partner, with whom they don't work, and people were apparently hugging afterwards, is a genuine business meeting. But it's a moot point - schmoozing up to people and taking them out to fancy restaurants is genuinely part of some businesses.

in normal times, yes its fine to have "meetings" which are really jollies.. but the times are not normal.

Has anyone else heard that Beatrice and Edo have just moved into Nottingham Cottage?
I read that somewhere, but haven't seen any other mention.

Nope, and as its quite a small cottage i would have thought it isn't really suitable for them with one child already... and probably other ones in due course. SUlrey they're able to find their own house.

There's been much speculation that they have quietly moved into Nott Cott recently.
Though that hasn't been confirmed.
(It does seem rather small, considering they must also accomodate Wolfie. But perhaps it is temporary?)

I think it must be true, since so many articles have mentioned it.

Just because there are articles mentioning it does not meant that it is necessarily true as one paper tends to pick up stories from anohter paper. At the moment there isn't much royal news and papers are probably stuck for a story.. I think that the reports that Eugenie and Jack moved into Frogmore are probalby true... and that may have sparked off a story on "where is Beatrice living".

I assume they're in the UK somewhere. We wouldn't really expect to see them very much or at all during lockdown (assuming they're obeying the rules). They don't do zoom engagements or are publicly active on social media like Eugenie.

The business dinner lie whilst unwise, blew over quickly so I don't think it would have chased them out of the country. They spent the first lockdown with his mother apparently and have lots of options with space.

Of course they're all right. They are rich, can manage without working or worrying about losing their homes during lockdown...

Or shocker, they are working remotely like millions of people

Both have jobs, and both have jobs that can be done some what remotely. Edo wouldnt catch much attention if he was out on the job, if Bea wasnt with him.

Unlike some royal spouses, Edo didn't live off the laurels of his parents. His wealth is self made. Not the lazy rich 'have no worries' playboy you paint.


I laugh during the pandemic and even not during it when we don't see royals 'oh but they are doing leg work. There are so many events and meetings we don't see'. When its the York girls 'oh well how lucky they are to be rich enough to be lazy'. You have to see to have proof they do something.

I agree. No matter what the York sisters do or accomplish, people will always find fault when they let others slide. The old saying "children paying for the sins of the parents". Shame. I certainly can't remember many awful things these girls have done over the years especially when compared to their cousins. I personally give them a lot of credit for turning out as well behaved and kind as they are. I wish them all the happiness God grants them. JMO

Countessmeout and Winnie I agree with you. These two Pss have been slammed just for being who they are. Maybe it is envy or just plain hate.
