Cape Town - Princess Beatrice of York could be the next royal to tie the knot after hooking up with wealthy business executive Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Although the princess (30) has been dating her beau for only two months she seems completely smitten with the 34-year-old, and has already introduced him to her friends and parents at an extravagant party thrown by Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal Diwali in London, ELLE reports.

“They could even be tying the knot in 2019 – it’s already been discussed by her friends,” an insider told The Sun.

“They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together. They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie (her mom) and her dad.

“Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time.”

Edoardo, who’s divorced, has a two-year-old son named Wolfie – which means Beatrice would be a stepmother should they wed, Mirror reports.


The business mogul runs a property consultancy company called Banda which he started in 2007.

The pair were introduced by a mutual acquaintance and reportedly had an instant connection as they run in the same social circles, Daily Mail reports.
