Prince Andrew's eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, married her businessman in a private ceremony on Friday after postponing the wedding because of the coronavirus outbreak.
31-year-old Beatrice was to marry Italian real estate developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (37) at St. James & # 39; s Palace in central London on May 29.
But the wedding was put on hold and no new date was given.
Buckingham Palace confirmed that the couple had tied the knot to an unannounced ceremony in front of their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and a small number of guests.
"The private wedding ceremony of Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took place on Friday, July 17, at 11:00 a.m. (1000 GMT) in the Royal Chapel of All Saints at the Royal Lodge in Windsor," said the royal family in one Explanation .
"The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Philip) and a close family attended the small ceremony. The wedding was held in accordance with all relevant government guidelines."
The 94-year-old Queen and her 99-year-old husband isolated themselves in the castle west of London because of their age, they are classified in a risk category for coronaviruses.
Beatrice and her sister Eugenie, 30, are the daughters of Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson. Both attended the ceremony, as did the groom's parents.
Andrew resigned from his royal duties last year after causing outrage in a television interview by defending his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein, an American millionaire, was found dead in prison last year while waiting for the sexual trade trial.
Andrew, 60, claimed to have had sex with a 17-year-old girl traded by Epstein.
U.S. investigators are keen to talk to the prince about his connections to Epstein after British celebrity Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested for sex trafficking.
