With massive events being cancelled or postponed world wide there are now reports that even the next royal wedding won’t go ahead due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Princess Beatrice may have to postpone her upcoming nuptials with fiancee Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi due to the spread of the virus.
The pair announced their engagement in September last year and were due to be wed at The Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace in London on May 29.
Buckingham Palace has since released a statement saying that these plans could now change.
“Princess Beatrice and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward to getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances,” the statement read.
“In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May.”
A reception for their wedding was due to take place at Buckingham Palace Gardens but the statement confirmed that this will no longer happen.
“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 statement also said that the couple may instead choose to hold a small wedding with just family and close friends.
“The couple will carefully consider government advice before deciding whether a private marriage might take place amongst a small group of family and friends.”
