Princess Beatrice will soon be walking down the aisle. On Thursday, Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York announced that their eldest daughter Beatrice got engaged to real estate tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this month.
"We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together," the couple said in a statement. "We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.”
Edoardo proposed to Beatrice during an intimate holiday in Italy after dating for two years, reports the BBC. The pair is set to wed next year.
“You will never be alone my love, my heart is your home,” Edoardo, director of real estate company Banda property, wrote in an Instagram post dedicated to his fiancée. “Hand in hand, today, tomorrow and forever.”
Princess Beatrice, who is ninth in line to the British throne, wrote on Twitter that she’s “so excited” about her engagement. In October 2018, her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, married British entrepreneur Jack Brooksbank.
