Princess Beatrice will marry her boyfriend Edoardo, also known as Edo by family and friends, on May 29, Buckingham Palace has announced. The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson will tie the knot at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace and later celebrate her nuptials with family and friends in the lavish gardens of Buckingham Palace.
Many details are still to be unveiled, including what the bride will wear on her special day.
One expert believes Princess Beatrice will not only make a less traditional choice with her wedding dress, but also suggested the young York should make a stand in favour of her country, currently undertaking difficult trade negotiations with the European Union.
Stephanie Moran, fashion expert and founder at Stephanie Moran Couture, told Express.co.uk: “I think a British designer will definitely be in the pipeline, and with the current position of the country, this would be a wise choice, supporting British trade and designers would definitely earn her brownie points.”
Ms Moran highlighted how other royal brides have delivered a message close to their heart through their wedding dress.

She continued: “It is highly likely that some form of symbolism will be shown in the make-up of Princess Beatrice’s dress.
“It seems a humbling tradition created by the younger royals.
“It has previously shown dedication to the Queen and country in Meghan’s symbolic messaged veil and the personal battles of Eugenie, who bared her scar for all to see.

“[These choices] remind us they are humans, that they care and are united.
“As with most brides, it’s special to have something personal and meaningful to them when it comes to the dress for their wedding day.
“Beatrice’s charities are obviously extremely important to her, so maybe we will see some reference to her tireless charity work.”

Princess Beatrice and Edo asked their guests not to spend money on wedding presents but to mark their important day by spending some time getting to know more two charities they deeply care about.
The first is Big Change, an organisation founded by the princess herself and 10 other people.
This charity, which aims to change the educational system, recently released a statement acknowledging Beatrice and Edo’s kind gesture.
It read: “Princess Beatrice has announced she will be asking her wedding guests to support youth charity Big Change instead of bringing gifts on her special day.

“In a statement the princess and her fiance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi asked that well-wishers find out more about the work of two charities, Big Change and Cricket Builds Hope.
“The princess was one of the founders of the charity and remains a Trustee today.
“She set up Big Change with five friends in 2012, with a vision to support ambitious projects that are at an early stage but have the potential to grow in size and impact young people across the country.
“Big Change aims to reimagine education so that every young person can thrive in life, not just exams.
“The charity fundraises to back projects and pioneers across England which support this aim.”
The charity Edo is asking his and Beatrice’s guests to support and know more about is Cricket Builds Hope, which uses the sport to bring about positive social change in Rwanda.
