Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi Just Threw a Star-Studded Engagement Party
The A-list celebration gave fans a peek at what's to come.
Prince Beatrice and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi celebrated their impending nuptials with a glamorous, star-studded engagement party in London this week. In addition to the bride-to-be's mother Sarah Ferguson and sister Princess Eugenie, the guest list included many other A-listers. Princess Beatrice's good friend Ellie Goulding was in attendance, as was Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews, People notes. Recently-engaged James Middleton and his fiancée Alizee Thevenet, James Blunt, and Robert DeNiro also stepped as to celebrate the soon-to-be newlyweds.
To celebrate their forthcoming wedding, Princess Beatrice and "Edo," as the royal's fiancé is affectionately known, invited their loved ones to the trendy Chiltern Firehouse bar in London for the swanky affair, the Daily Mail notes.
As expected, the guests were dressed to the nines. Ellie Goulding was seen in a black-velvet dress while Alizee Thevenet sported on-trend patterned pants, leaving royal fans wondering what fashionable looks we can expect to see from the rest of the couple's pre-nuptials events—and the wedding itself. Although the duo hasn't revealed an official date for the big day, many expect an announcement to come in January 2020 and the big day to transpire a few months later, potentially in the summer.
Royal aficionados will recall that Princess Beatrice and Mozzi announced their engagement in September with an announcement from Buckingham Palace. "The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Beatrice to Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi," the palace report read. Following the official statement, they posted a collection of engagement photos on social media that gave fans a peek at the royal's new engagement ring, which is estimated to be worth $100,000. "We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can't wait to be married," they wrote in the caption.
