While all eyes were on her sister walking down the aisle at St. George's Chapel, Princess Beatrice was having a secret romance of her own.
Yep, the 30-year-old royal has allegedly been dating property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi for a couple of months ... and he's already met her parents!
According to reports, Beatrice and the 34-year-old multi-millionaire have known each other for quite some time, with the pair attending the same social events as far back as 2011.
But only now have the two enjoyed a series of dates, with a friend revealing: "They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad. Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time."
Edoardo is a divorcé and has a two-year-old son from his previous relationship, named Wolfie.
He earned his millions as a property developer after founding real estate firm Banda in 2007. The company, which Edoardo still serves as its CEO, specialises in finding and developing homes for wealthy clients.
He also co-founded the Cricket Builds Hope (CBH) charity, which was inspired by his late stepfather's vision.
According to its website, the organisation teaches Rwandans how to play cricket and "harnesses the power of sport to promote reconciliation and tackle deep-seated social issues like gender inequality through specially tailored sessions run by CBH’s cricket coaching team."
Beatrice has previously been in two known relationships.
Her first romance was at 17-years-old with New York native Paolo Liuzzo.
She later dated Uber executive Dave Clark for 10 years before they split in 2016.
So now we can't help but start dreaming of yet another royal wedding!
