Princess Beatriz announced her commitment to real estate mogul Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in September, after a romantic getaway to Italy. The couple released adorable engagement photos to commemorate the occasion, taken by Bea’s younger sister, Princess Eugenia.
Real experts have said that Beatrice is looking for a smaller wedding celebration than her sister’s.
Royal correspondent Jennie Bond said in ITV’s Lorraine: “I think they are going to have to rethink Beatrice’s wedding arrangements.”
“He is going to marry a man named Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and I think they were planning something similar to Eugenie’s wedding.”
“There were protests over the security costs for the taxpayer,” he added, “and I don’t think they want a similar shame for Beatrice, so I imagine it will be reduced a little.”

“I can only hope that, over time, they can rebuild their lives.
“Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if necessary.”
Now, the royal family faces more turmoil after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their intention to “withdraw” from their roles as royalty members.
The Queen has called a crisis conversation with the royals and the Duke of Sussex on Monday in an attempt to find a solution for the future roles of Meghan and Harry.
The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge will join the head of state at their private estate in Sandringham, Norfolk, for the decisive meeting, where the “next steps” will be decided, a source told the AP.
This could see Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie asking for a step forward and taking on more real responsibilities, with The Firm now in three royals.
Both Beatrice and Eugenie have full-time jobs outside the Royal Family, but their grandmother, the Queen, could turn to them at this time of need.
If Prince Harry gives up his titles in his quest to leave, he could make Beatrice a member of royalty.
Prince Harry is sixth on the throne line and his son Archie seventh, but without them, Beatrice would rise to the sixth.
The Queen is expected to confirm Bea and Edo’s wedding date at the end of the month, but the announcement can be suspended as things get resolved with Meghan and Harry.
The extent to which Harry and Meghan will retain their patronage and royal duties is in debate, and other royals may have to pick up their schedules.
A royal source said: “The family will meet on Monday in Sandringham to speak, which will be attended by His Majesty, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex.
“After a series of meetings and consultations in recent days, the family has a wide range of review possibilities that take into account the thinking that the Sussex described earlier this week.
“As we have said before, making a change in working life and the role in the monarchy for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex requires complex and thoughtful discussions.
“The next steps will be agreed at the meeting, the request that this be resolved at a pace remains the wish of His Majesty: the goal remains days, not weeks.
“There is a genuine agreement and an understanding that any decision will take time to implement.”
