Princess Beatrice has been forced to cancel her wedding reception at Buckingham Palace because of the worsening coronavirus pandemic.
Beatrice had been due to marry her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozz i at London's St James's Palace on May 29.
The Queen was then set to give a private reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances.
“In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May.
“They are particularly conscious of government advice in relation to both the wellbeing of older family members and large gatherings of people.
“Therefore, the planned reception in the Buckingham Palace Gardens will not take place.
“The couple will carefully consider government advice before deciding whether a private marriage might take place amongst a small group of family and friends.”
Beatrice and property developer Edoardo became engaged in Italy in September 2019.
The couple had been together for 11 months when they announced they were to marry.
Edo reportedly proposed with a ring estimated to have cost £100,000.
The 35-year-old year-old founded property development company Banda in 2007.
Banda promises to discreetly find clients multi-million pound homes.
