Princess Beatrice, 31, was due to get married in May with a reception held at Buckingham Palace but has had to postpone her royal wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. There has been a lot of speculation around when the Queen’s granddaughter will be able to get married in 2020 or whether she will postpone the date until 2021. But one member of public has hit out at Beatrice and accused her of wanting an expensive wedding while the public is suffering in the coronavirus crisis.
Speaking on the Jeremy Vine Show, Doreen from Essex, said: “I’m not worried about them being in isolation.
“I just think it’s disgusting that Princess Beatrice wants a more expensive wedding when everyone is suffering.”
Commentator Iain Dale added: “I think a vast majority of the country think the Queen does a superb job.
“I’m interested in what the Queen says, I’m interested in what Prince Charles says, possible Prince William.
“Beyond that I don’t really care what they all say. I don’t think anybody actually worries about Beatrice’s wedding.
“It’s sad that’s been postponed, but it’s like thousands of other couples across the country who have had to postpone their weddings.
“It’ll happen next year.”
Mr Dale added: “She’s essentially a private citizen, she’s not one of the key royals, not quite sure why we’re spending a lot of time talking about her.”
If Beatrice was to go ahead with her wedding this year she will only be able to have two guests at her wedding if the coronavirus crisis continues.
The Church of England has said the number of people attending church weddings during the outbreak should be limited to the legal minimum of five – the priest, the bride and groom and two witnesses.
Royal expert Omid Scobie believes Beatrice’s next wedding date will be in 2021,
Speaking on ABC News’s HeirPod, Mr Scobie said: “We heard before that the Queen was hosting a reception at Buckingham Palace in the gardens, that’s no longer taking place.”
