I agree the York Minster and York tiara would be great for Beatrice! My feeling is perhaps neither will happen. But a beautiful tiara from the vault will be great also.

I am in total agreement - as lovely as St George's Chapel is, my choice would be York Minster.

It won't be York Minster, although I used to want it a lot for the York Princesses. They don't have any particular connection to the area (unlike Windsor) and whilst not as busy as London there would be a lot of moaning about the cost of rerouting traffic, security and grandiosity during a time of (probable) austerity and York family scandal. And whilst there are places to rent to host a reception, at Windsor they have the castle and Royal Lodge right there, already under tight control.

We don't know if Edo is a practicing Catholic but even if he was I don't think Westminster Cathedral would be an option for the granddaughter of the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. Would a Catholic blessing be an option if they wanted it? I know it's a sacrament but it isn't in the COE.

Destination wedding in Italy? I doubt it, both because of her grandparents and Edo has lived his life in the UK and by all accounts was much closer to his step father than his biological father.

It would be nice to know her mother's tiara has not been sold. Though I think Eugenie wearing the one she did had more to do with it being completely stunning than anything else.

York Minister. Although my dream is to see a palace wedding with inside coverage. I’d like to see Beatrice use her mother’s wedding tiara, too.

First I give my suggestions:
Wedding in May
In St. George's Chapel in Windsor
Traditional Anglican Wedding (like Eugenie's)
Matron of Honour: Eugenie
Best Man: a friend of Edoardo (I don't know if he has any siblings).
Wolfie included among Bridal attendants (and Beatrice's godchild if she has any).

I don’t know if Edoardo is Anglican. If not, maybe they will choose an ecumenical service.

for tiara- I'll go with the York tiara. As the eldest daughter it stands to reason that Beatrice will inherit it. That's why I previously predicted Eugenie would wear a different tiara.

for venue- I'll go with St. Margaret's Westminster. That's as close to the Abbey (her parents venue) as she'll get. It's been used before by David Armstrong-Jones. Plus I think they'd like a London wedding. Maybe a lunch reception at Buckingham Palace. Then the next day her parents could host a party at Windsor Lodge.

For the date - April-June . I lean towards the latter end.

Like Eugenie I think there will be a lot of young members of the BRF in the wedding party- Savannah, Isla, George, Charlotte, and Mia. Maybe even Louis and Lena if the wedding date falls after their 2nd birthdays. I can see Eugenie being her "Matron of Honor".

I agree about St. George's, it is a stunning venue but I'm kind of fed up looking at it now. York Minster would be a glorious church to marry in and the architecture inside would be breathtaking to see on television. Unfortunately I don't see it happening. I am also curious about the carraige ride after the ceremony .There was a lot of anger that taxpayers had to foot a multi million pound security bill for the last one so perhaps the Yorks will cover the cost themselves this time if it goes ahead. Andrew is more unpopular than ever so I think public funding for it would cause even more anger this time around.

ACO 09-26-2019 01:39 PM

Yeah I am hoping for some place other than St. George.
It is lovely but we have been blessed with three in the last year so far.

Moonmaiden23 09-26-2019 01:45 PM

I would love for the wedding to be at York Minster, but there is no way that Beatrice will inconvenience her beloved "Super Gran" so St. George's Windsor it will be.

I don't think any of her attendants will be adults, like Eugenie she will adopt the traditional aristocratic Brit practice of having all children with little Wolfie Mapelli-Mozzi perhaps being in the party. I love George and Charlotte but they are a little bit over exposed for family weddings at this point. I would adore to see little Prince Louis make his wedding debut, won't he be approaching 3 years in Spring 2020? Maybe a bit young?

I don't think this wedding will be a bit subdued. I suspect it will be just as lavish as Eugenie's and then some. I expect to see a few foreign Royals like Beatrice's old school chum Prince Amadeo of Belgium and Princess Elisabetta, and former PM David Cameron as well. I also would not be surprised to see nuptial celebrations taking place in Italy after the wedding in England.

If Edo is at least a nominal Catholic, perhaps a priest or bishop can impart a Nuptial blessing at the service.

As for her tiara, for sentimental reasons I am hoping for the York tiara even though I never found it particularly impressive.

I think ...I hope....that her bridal gown will flatter her classic feminine body and be fitted tightly in the bodice and have a very full skirt with a bustle and a long train veil. I hope to see a champagne/ivory shade, which will look glorious with Beatrice's coloring.

I am very excited for this wedding, which I am almost sure will be about 7 mos from now(April);)

That sounds very pretty.
I think touches of apricot/coral, perhaps in the bridesmaids' sashes and the floral arrangements, would also work well.

Pranter 09-26-2019 01:59 PM

I'm hoping for a more vintage style wedding dress for her that will flatter her hourglass figure.

Louis will turn 2 in April (born 2018), so he'd be about the age Charlotte was during Pippa's wedding.

Rudolph 09-26-2019 02:41 PM

I can certainly see Prince Louis being a pageboy.

Gawin 09-26-2019 02:41 PM

That would be nice!

An Ard Ri 09-26-2019 02:49 PM

It would be very fitting to see a York wedding in York but I feel St. George’s chapel in Windsor would be more appropriate given the advanced age of the queen and duke of Edinburgh.

Half-Aunt Alice Ferguson (married, probably with children)
Half-Aunt Elizabeth Ferguson (newly married)

But if those children were not included as Eugenie's bridal attendants, I doubt they will be as Beatrice's.



Me too: I wonder if his dad will be present at the wedding, what kind of bond do they have.
My update: among bridal children - included Natalia's child(ren) if she has any.
Best Man will be probably Albermarle Shale, Edo's half-brother.

His father was quoted in the statement by the Palace so I expect him to attend.

crm2317 09-26-2019 04:15 PM

For attendants I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Holly Branson’s twins, Holly and Beatrice seem to be quite close.

An Ard Ri 09-26-2019 04:39 PM

I just realized that I know absolutely nothing about the Ferguson family!

theroyalfly 09-26-2019 04:51 PM

I'm excited to finally see Wolfie at the wedding ceremony!

I suspect he will be involved as a page boy but it's always possible his parents will decide that they don't want his face plastered all over the newspapers as the new stepson of a Princess when he's so young and we won't see him in any of the public events.
