We all love a royal couple and apparently, there’s a new one for us to get excited about.

Princess Beatrice, 30, is dating multi-millionaire property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 34, according to UK reports.

The Sun reported the couple was introduced by mutual friends two months ago and hit it off instantly.

Beatrice has already introduced Edoardo to her parents the Duke and Duchess of York and introduced him as her boyfriend at a lavish party in London last week, The Sun claimed.

“They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together,” a ‘friend’ told the publication. “They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad. Things are moving very quickly.”


Edoardo is the CEO of Banda (meaning “big shed” in Swahili) which he founded in 2007.

He is the step-son of Christopher Shale, a close friend of former-UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who died of a heart attack at Glastonbury in 2011.

Edoardo is a divorced father of a two-year-old son called Wolfie who specialises in “discreetly finding and developing multi-million pound homes,” according to The Sun.

Oh, and judging from his social media presence he is a big cricket fan and involved in Cricket Builds Hope, a charity using the sport as a tool for positive social change in Rwanda.

The Sun‘s source also claimed we may have another royal wedding on the horizon.

“They could even be tying the knot in 2019 – it’s already been discussed by her friends,” the source said.

“Everyone is thrilled that Bea is so happy and in such a good place right now.”

Beatrice’s sister Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank in October and of course, her cousin Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in May.

Beatrice has been single since her split from her American boyfriend Dave Clark after 10 years together.
