In the presence of Queen Elizabeth II, the bride’s grandmother, Buckingham Palace announced that Princess Beatrice married British real estate developer Eduardo Mozy at a special ceremony, Friday morning.
The ceremony was held at the Royal Church in Windsor, in the presence of the Queen, her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh and other close family members, with a limited number of guests in line with the guidelines for the Corona virus.
Beatrice, 31, is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, and her husband is 37 years old.
The church itself had witnessed the wedding of Grand Beatrice, Queen Victoria, to Prince Albert, in 1840.
Beatrice announced her engagement to Mozy last year, knowing that the bridegroom is British-born and belongs to an ancient Italian family.
The father of the bride stepped down from royal duties in November on the grounds of criticism of his friendship with American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was convicted on charges of sexual assault and died last August.
An American woman named Virginia Roberts Geoffer said she had a relationship with the Prince on the recommendation of Epstein, when she was seventeen years old.
The FBI wants to investigate the prince as part of the Epstein investigation, but the US attorney general said last month that Prince Andrew was not cooperating and denies any crime.
Last year, Princess Eugenie married Beatrice’s younger sister, Jack Brockbank, at Windsor Castle.
