Princess Beatrice, 31, was among Royal Family members to attend a special Christmas gathering at Buckingham Palace today. While Princess Eugenie, 29, attended with her husband Jack Brooksbank, it seems Bea’s fiancé Edoardo did not get an invite.
Why Edoardo didn’t join Princess Beatrice for Christmas lunch with the Queen?
Every year Queen Elizabeth II hosts a festive lunch for family members at Buckingham Palace.
The get together is a highlight for the royals and a chance for them to catch up before Christmas Day.
Among the guests were Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William with their brood as well as Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex and their two children.

Where will Beatrice get married?
There were reports Beatrice plans to get married at her father’s royal residence the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
However, others predict she could tie the knot abroad following the furore surrounding Prince Andrew and his withdrawal from royal life.
Native Italian Edoardo may wish to have the ceremony in his homeland.
Royal expert Angella Mollard announced she believes the Princess’ wedding will be held in Italy, claiming this destination may have been chosen as a way to escape the circumstances of her father’s accusations in the UK.
Ms Mollard said: “I think it is going to be very interesting to see generally what happens around Princess Beatrice’s wedding.
“This is because this is overshadowing it but she is a very different creature to Princess Eugenie.
“Eugenie is the second the child and is a little bit more outgoing. Beatrice is a very private and quiet person.
“I think we could very well potentially see the wedding in Italy which is where her fiancé family are based.
“It is hard to know. Weddings of royal brides traditionally happen in England.
“But under these circumstances would an Italian wedding work out better.
“If it was me I would be opting for that choice.”
