The Queen's granddaughter, Princess Beatrice, is set to marry her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice is engaged to her partner Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the royal family has announced. The granddaughter of the Queen, and ninth-in-line to the British throne, will seemingly be wed in 2020.

In a statement shared by the monarchy on Twitter, it was said Princess Beatrice and Edoardo became engaged in Italy earlier this month. Soon after, this photograph was taken by her sister Princess Eugenie.

Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a multi-millionaire in the property development industry. It’s believed the pair met a year ago and had an immediate spark.

"We share so many similar interests and values," they added, "and we know this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness."

What's more, Princess Beatrice's parents, the Duke and Duchess of York said, "We are thrilled that Beatrice and Edoardo have got engaged, having watched their relationship develop with pride.

The news of Beatrice's engagement comes one year after her sister, Princess Eugenie, married her husband, Jack Brooksbank. Their wedding took place in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle (the same location of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day).

Specific details about Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's wedding are yet unknown.
