Princess Beatrice's Husband: What The World Needs To Know About Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice is now a married woman! If that surprises you, that's likely because her wedding was very different than other royal ceremonies that have involved her family members. Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot during an epically lavish and very public affair, as did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Beatrice's sister Princess Eugenie when she wed Jack Brooksbank. However, after the first ceremony that Beatrice had planned couldn't take place due to the restrictions around public gatherings because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Queen's granddaughter held a secret wedding on July 17, 2020, and married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. But who is the lucky groom who's now a part of the royal family?

"Edo," as he's called, has been around Beatrice for years. In fact, his parents, Nikki Williams-Ellis and Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, noted in the engagement announcement, according to Insider, "Our family has known Beatrice for most of her life."

"Edo and Beatrice are made for each other, and their happiness and love for each other is there for all to see," the seemingly approving parents added, saying that the couple "share[s] an incredibly strong and united bond." 

Perhaps the two have such a strong bond because they have a lot in common, such as impressive careers and a desire to be good parents. ...Wait, parents?! Yes, that's right, Princess Beatrice is not only a married woman who has a legitimate job, now she has a little one to look after.

Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi has an impressive career

When Edoardo "Edo" Mapelli Mozzi isn't at home spending time with his wife, Princess Beatrice, he may be at work making deals and money. People noted that Edo is a "multi-millionaire property tycoon," while his own Instagram account bio identifies him as a "Property specialist" and the CEO of a company called Banda, which handles property development, architecture and interior design, as well as private client searches and acquisitions.

Are you impressed yet? Just wait until you find out what Princess Beatrice does for a living! Although she does show up for official engagements on behalf of the royal family, it is not a full-time gig for Beatrice. Instead, the royal went to school to earn a BA in History from Goldsmiths, University of London. Nowadays, Beatrice York (no, she apparently doesn't use her title of princess while at her job) works in finance and consulting, according to Good Housekeeping. The outlet notes that she took a role at the venture capital firm Sandbridge before becoming the Vice President of Partnerships & Strategy at the software company Afiniti.

Although it certainly sounds like this is one pair of spouses who are equally successful in their professional lives, they're also just as dedicated to their personal dealings, which includes being parents.

Princess Beatrice is now a step-mom

When Princess Beatrice married Edoardo "Edo" Mapelli Mozzi in July 2020, she became more than just a wife. She also became a step-mom! Mozzi is the father of a son, Christopher Woolf "Wolfie" Mapelli Mozzi, who he shares with his former fiancée, architect and designer Dara Huang, according to People.

Born in 2016, which means he was around four years old when his father married into the royal family, the plan was originally for Edo's son to act as a pageboy in the original wedding, and Town & Country confirmed he was there at the rescheduled ceremony. The insider added that "Beatrice has embraced the child as part of her life from the outset." The person who apparently has knowledge of the new family continued by saying, "Edo is easily one of the best dads, he is so involved, and Beatrice is already showing that she's a fantastic step-mummy."

As for Huang, she and Edo are seemingly on good terms. "I wish the best for Edo and Beatrice and look forward to uniting our families," the architect told the Daily Mail in September 2019.

Congrats again to the happy couple!
