Princess Beatrice’s reception “had a bouncy castle, glamping pods and a pop-up pub”


Princess Beatrice and her new husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are said to have enjoyed a relaxed wedding reception with a bouncy castle, glamping booths and a pop-up named after her father.The couple tied the knot in a secret ceremony at All Saints Chapel in Windsor on Friday morning before enjoying a reception in an Indian-style tent on the grounds of the Royal Lodge.

They partied until the early hours of the morning before spending their wedding night in a glamping pod, according to reports.

The tent was called The Duke of York and would have a very casual theme with canapes, a jukebox, draft beer and a game of darts.

Only 14 friends were invited to the reception following the intimate ceremony attended by less than 20 guests.

A friend of the newlyweds told The Sun, “I heard everyone had a great night. It was totally relaxed.

“There was a bit of dancing until the early hours with the flamboyant jukebox. ”

Friends are believed to have started arriving around 5 p.m., many also staying in glamping booths on the ground.

There was custom catering, cocktails, and a bouncy castle, reports the Daily Mail.

The only photos released from the big day so far are of Bea, 31, and Edo, 37, leaving church and posing outside with the Queen and Prince Philip.

Prince Andrew has been snubbed from official photographs, meaning Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, 60, and the groom’s parents were not listed either. Eduardo’s three-year-old son Christopher, known as Wolfie, was also not the best man and page boy.

The couple got married in a small intimate ceremony

Beatrice wore a vintage Peau De Soie taffeta dress in ivory tones by Norman Hartnell trimmed in duchess satin and encrusted with rhinestones – which was on loan from the Queen.

The dress was remodeled and fitted by Queen’s senior dresser Angela Kelly and designer Stewart Parvin, Buckingham Palace said.

Beatrice also wore the Queen Mary diamond fringed tiara which was also loaned by the Queen and even worn by the monarch on her wedding day.

The couple originally planned to marry in the Royal Chapel of St James Palace on May 29, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus lockout.

Fewer than 20 guests attended Friday’s secret ceremony – a far cry from the 2018 wedding of Bea’s sister Eugenie, 30, and Jack Brooksbank, 30, at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The secret wedding of Princess Beatrice

A friend revealed Beatrice – “determined to make her family smile again” – and her mother planned the private wedding in two weeks.

Buckingham Palace said last night: “The couple have decided to have a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings after their wedding was postponed to May.

“The service was in line with the unique circumstances while still allowing them to celebrate with their closest family.”
