“The couple became engaged in Italy in September 2019.

“The Queen has kindly given permission for the ceremony to take place at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.

“The ceremony will be followed by a private reception, given by The Queen, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.”

The news of the date was met by excitement and ribbing.

Another wrote: “I’m So Excited, ❤️ a Royal Wedding.”

It comes after it was revealed that the wedding is set to include her fiancé’s son. 

Edoardo shares Christopher ‘Wolfie’ Woolf with ex-partner, architect and designer, Dara Huang. 

“He is very much part of their life,” Beatrice’s pal told PEOPLE. “Beatrice has embraced the child as part of her life from the outset.”

Edo’s ex-fiancee has made it known that she approves of Bea by releasing a statement after the pair announced their engagement

“I wish the best for Edo and Beatrice and look forward to uniting our families,” she told The Daily Mail at the time.

Dara and Edo met in London through mutual friends in 2015. The pair were together for three years before calling it quits.

It was rumoured that Edo split with Dara just six months before the Italian property developer was first spotted with the royal at the National Portrait Gallery gala.

The Daily Mail reported that Dara was travelling for work in Thailand when the news of their relationship first broke.

However, there appears to be no animosity between the two parties, with one source telling the publication that the architect will be attending the royal wedding next year.

“Dara thinks Beatrice is wonderful with Wolfie,” a source tells the Daily Mail. “She’s a natural.”

It is understood that unlike her sister Princess Eugenie’s lavish wedding to Jack Brooksbank, Bea will enjoy a low-key private affair.
