We were looking forward to yet another royal wedding this year with Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi set to marry on Friday, 29 May. But with the coronavirus outbreak, the couple announced they're cancelling their plans and opting for a much smaller gathering instead.

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, put the UK under lockdown when he announced strict orders to reduce the spread of the virus this week, while the queen has issued a statement of her own saying that all the members of the royal family are doing what they can to flatten the curve.

But we're here to make sure you get your royal fix, despite the queen cancelling all upcoming royal engagements.

It may not be Beatrice's, but we're looking at three royal weddings that were recently broadcast for all the world to see: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's, Prince William and Kate Middleton's and, of course, Bea's younger sister, Princess Eugenie's.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank married on 12 October 2018 at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Royal fans gathered with their picnic baskets and blankets, waiting for the moment the couple would walk down the aisle. With Prince George and Princess Charlotte as paige boy and flower girl, the couple said, "I do," before sharing a kiss on the chapel stairs.

On her first anniversary, the princess shared a video to her Instagram, saying, "This was the greatest day of my life."


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Just five months before Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot, Prince Harry married American actress, Meghan Markle, at St George's Chapel on 19 May 2018.

It was a fairytale wedding that saw many royals and celebrities guests come together, while 11.5 million people reportedly tuned in to watch the much-anticipated royal event.

Many moments went viral – my favourite was when Twitter managed to track down and lip-read the exact moment Harry sneakily told Meghan she looked "amazing" – so we've included a BBC video of all the highlights for you right here.


Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton married nine years ago on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

It was the first big wedding for their generation of royals, so everyone was talking about the dress, the guests and that first kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
