I suspect once we get pictures/coverage of the Queen doing the investiture and a beaming Sir Tom and his family, everything will be temporarily forgotten for these two until we get the pictures tomorrow.

And that is very much the right way, IMO!

Congratulations to the couple!

Beatrice probably wanted so very, very much to have both her beloved grandparents see her making wedding vows

They also married on my son's and his wife's 10th wedding anniversary so I have the *perfect* song handy that I'll pass along here as I did to the kids. :)

It is also Duchess Camilla's 73rd birthday.

Who could attend?

Her parents, grandparents, sister with brother-in-law...
His mother and stepfather, his father and stepmother, his sister with brother-in-law, his half-brother...It would make 13 guests.

Difficult to tell, but something along those lines

You can have up to 30 guests at your wedding provided social distancing is in place so theoretically it could be the vicar, her parents, grandparents, sister and brother ln law, his mother and stepfather and possibly father and stepmother, brother and any other aunts and uncles/extremely close friends. Possibly his son, if his mother agreed.

All Saints is a royal peculiar and used by the Queen and people living working on the estates so easy to test, track and trace and make safe. Beautiful setting, if not what they originally planned.

It also had to be organised before the Queen left for Balmoral. Weddings have only been allowed since 4th July so they obviously decided right away that they wanted to "just get married already" and put this together in a couple of weeks.

Congratulations to the couple, and fabulous that Beatrice's grandparents were there. Great news in a year which has not had much.

The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant government guidelines, Buckingham Palace said."
It is surprising and disappointing to see a media organization as respected as the BBC spreading the disinformation that Edo Mapelli Mozzi is "Italian". As has been reported and discussed, he is British-born and raised, has lived in the United Kingdom for his entire life, carries only British citizenship, and is chiefly of British descent. While he has visited Italy, his sole link to Italy is his patrilineal ancestry.

Characterizing Mr. Mapelli Mozzi as "Italian" is equivalent to characterizing Princess Beatrice as "Greek".

Does Edo have/manage Italian property?

To be honest, I don't think Captain Tom Moore is going to feel as if he's been overshadowed on his big day. This wonderful man is going to be over the moon mostly because he'll be meeting with and being honored by the Queen whom he has diligently served for so many years. He'll have his family with him to share in his special day and Beatrice's wedding will be something he'll be able to congratulate the Queen on the happy occasion up front and personally. In a way, it may even add to his special day.

My thoughts on the delay of the announcement by BP is perhaps they were thinking that they'd like to send out the announcement of the marriage and include pictures of the happy couple at the same time. I guess it doesn't really matter now as the cat's out of the bag but its still happy news all the way around.

Aww....what a romantic surprise to wake up to. I bet Beatrice looked beautiful but I doubt there will be any pictures released.

I hope sometime in the future the newlyweds can give a big glitzy party....IF that is what they want.

No, it;s not the same:

"Edo's grandfather was Count Gian Paolo Mapelli Mozzi (1922-80), Italian aristocrat, who married Gigliola Stoppani. Count Gian Paolo was a son of Count Luigi Mapelli Mozzi (1894-1948), who married Nobile Maria Mercedes Baroli.

Count Luigi was a son of Count Paolo Mapelli Mozzi (1854-1921), who married Enrichetta Tarsis dei Conti di Castel d'Agogna (1866-1941). Count Paolo was the son of Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi (1815-79) who married Nobile Ippolita Giulino dei Conti di Vialba.

The Mapelli Mozzi name came about from the marriage of Count Alessandro's father, Nobile Gerolamo Mapelli (1785-1842) with Angela Mozzi."

Giving the above we may consider Edoardo as half-Italian, although he was born and raised in the UK; his parents definitely wanted to underline it by giving him an Italian name.

And his father Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi grew up in Sottoriva, Ponte San Pietro, the home of his family seat, Villa Mapelli Mozzi, so he was born and raised in Italy and his first language is definitely Italian.

I do think a lot of emphasis is put on Edo's Italian paternal ancestry because if his very Italian name and title (which he doesn't use at all). His father went to an RC public school in the UK and holds dual citizenship.

If it was his maternal family who were Italian instead and his name was Edoardo Burrows then it wouldn't be reported on in the same way.

However it's not quite the same as theoretical news reports calling Beatrice "Greek" or the BRF in general "German."

The Royal Chapel of All Saints was such a nice private setting for the wedding.

wow, great news! this is the second COVID19 royal wedding!

i wonder if they will have a second wedding to celebrate properly with all their friends and family once this is all over. i think this was also convenient as having a big wedding (as eugenie did) would not have been appropriate following andrew being asked to step away from royal duties due to the epstein affair.

Congratulations to Beatrice and Eduardo! I am thrilled for them that they were able to marry in the low key ceremony that they had always wanted to have.
