Were Prince William and Kate Middleton at Princess Beatrice’s wedding?

In a word: no.

However, this wasn’t because they didn’t want to be, or because Princess Beatrice and her new hubby Edo Mapelli Mozzi didn’t want to invite them. Because of the current coronavirus guidelines surrounding gatherings in the UK, it is believed that cousin Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton couldn’t attend the wedding.

However, the royal couple did take to their Instagram account to wish the couple congratulations (so 2020!), and retweeted a tweet of congratulations form the Royal Family’s Twitter account. They wrote on the Instagram story post “Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who were married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor on Friday!”.

 

With the mid-pandemic guest list on people’s minds, the palace made the announcement that “the small ceremony was attended by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family. The wedding took place in accordance with all relevant Government Guidelines”. It has been suggested that if William and Kate had attended, they would have shared the same statement. We also know that Beatrice’s father, Prince Andrew, was in attendance as he walked her down the aisle.

Oh, and side note: the sparkly Valentino shoes that Beatrice wore, were also the shoes which she wore at Prince William and Kate’s wedding, and Prince Amedeo of Belgium’s wedding way back in 2014 – a sustainable girl after our own heart!
