The daughter of Prince Andrew the Duke of York, Princess Beatrice, is set to be married to Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
“I’m so excited to announce my engagement to Edo,” Princess Beatrice said on Twitter, along with an official engagement announcement from Buckingham Palace.
Beatrice, 31, is the elder daughter of Andrew, the third child of Queen Elizabeth II, and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Ferguson divorced Andrew in 1996 and has since become an author, film producer, and spokesperson.
Andrew, 59, has recently come under fire for his past relationship with the late Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced philanthropist accused of sex trafficking and assaulting underage girls over the period of several years. Andrew is accused of being a member of Epstein’s inner-circle and being an active participant in the abuse of girls in the early 2000s and beyond. Epstein died by suicide in prison while awaiting trial this summer.
