Princess Beatrice is engaged, and her family could not be happier! After the news was announced, the bride-to-be’s younger sister and mother took to their respective social media accounts to express their joy over the 31 year old and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s engagement. “I know what a mother feels so I have tears of joy. I am so proud of this sensational news,” Sarah Ferguson wrote alongside a closeup of Beatrice’s ring and a candid snapshot of the couple.
The mother of the bride wasn’t the only one celebrating Beatrice’s engagement. Eugenie posted a sweet tribute for her big sister. “Beabea - wow! I'm so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo. It's been a long time coming and you two are meant to be. 📷 by me!!,” the 29-year-old royal penned.
Eugenie, who snapped Beatrice and Edoardo’s engagement photos, then added the couple’s official statement, which read: “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 actually be married. We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.”
Beatrice shared the statement on her personal social media account as well, adding, “I’m so excited to announce my engagement to Edo.” Edo popped the question in Italy earlier this month with a ring he designed in collaboration with British jewelry designer Shaun Leane. Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter and the Italian property tycoon, 34, will say “I do” in 2020.
