- Princess Beatrice reportedly had to reschedule her engagement party because of her father Prince Andrew's recent scandal.
- The initial venue was too high profile, and the royal was apparently worried that there'd be too many photographers outside.
Hi, here with some uncomfy royal news: it looks like Princess Beatrice had to cancel an engagement party because of the recent scandal with her dad, Prince Andrew. As you prob already know, Prince Andrew recently stepped back from his royal duties after causing outrage with his tell-all BBC interview, in which he explained his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein and defended himself against certain allegations.
According to Daily Mail, Beatrice had planned an engagement party at a trendy London restaurant next week, but "had to change the date of her engagement party at the Chiltern Firehouse because of fears there will be too many photographers outside – looking for him [Prince Andrew]."
Apparently, Beatrice and her fiancé Edo Mapelli Mozzi's choice of venue caused "concerned it was far too high-profile given the sensitive time her family is going through," and the couple canceled their initial plans and changed the date of the party so that Prince Andrew can "sneak in under the radar."
And not to be a huge downer, but it looks like Beatrice might have to adjust a lot more than her engagement party—previous reports say that since the scandal, Prince Charles is “planning to strip back the royal family" to just his immediate family, which excludes Andrew, Beatrice, and Eugenie.
But obviously Charles isn't king just yet, so who knows if that will actually happen. Until then, here's hoping that Beatrice found another venue for her party!
