Princess Beatrice Will Get an Unexpected Title After Her Wedding

And it has nothing to do with the British royal family.

Princess Beatrice is getting a new title after her wedding — but it has nothing to do with the British royal family.

According to People, her husband-to-be, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, descends from Italian aristocracy, and Beatrice will become an Italian “Contessa” and “Nobile Donna,” or noble woman, following their wedding.

Edoardo’s father is Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, and as the eldest son in the family, Edoardo will inherit the family’s ancestral seat, the 18th century Villa Mapelli Mozzi palace in northern Italy.

Princess Beatrice and her fiancé will be getting married on May 29 at the Chapel Royal at St James Palace, the first royal wedding to take place in London since Prince William and Kate Middleton married at Westminster Abbey, followed a reception at Buckingham Palace in 2011.

It was previously reported that Edoardo has chosen his three-year-old son, Christopher, also known as Wolfie, to be his best man, making him the youngest person to ever perform the role at a royal wedding.

A source has also told People it's likely her father, Prince Andrew, will walk her down the aisle, though he appeared to skip out on Beatrice's engagement party after public backlash over his connections to Jeffrey Epstein.
