Princess Beatrice managed to celebrate a truly happy occasion amid the upset of this year when she married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Her wedding was scheduled to take place on May 29, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the wedding took place in private on July 17. But how old exactly is Princess Bea’s new husband as he celebrates his birthday today?

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo were married in a quiet ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor on July 17.

Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew walked her down the aisle, with her wearing a gown borrowed from the Queen.

In addition, Bea wore the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara which was worn by the Queen at her own wedding.

The scaled-back wedding was watched by 20 guests including the Queen and Prince Philip.

Princess Beatrice this week launched a heartfelt art auction fundraiser for the Northwood African Education Foundation (NAEF).

The auction will take place on Thursday, December 3, a day after the second lockdown in England comes to an end and will feature works from Sir Anthony Gormley and other artists.

Beatrice said: “I am proud to be patron of this extraordinary endeavour giving the precious gift of education to hundreds of children, who otherwise would not have access to a full-time education.

“This has been a hugely challenging year for NAEF and all charities and I would like to thank all those artists who have generously donated their work.

“Their donations will enable the charity to raise money in difficult times ensuring they can continue to provide full-time education to more than 400 children currently at St George’s Ethiopia.”

Who is Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi?

Beatrice married Edoardo, whom she has known since childhood.

The couple’s parents are both friends and have been close for years.

Edo proposed to Beatrice in Italy in September last year with an engagement ring made by British jeweller Shaun Leane.

Edoardo is a British property tycoon and the founder and chief executive of property development company Banda.

Edo was educated at Dragon School and Radley College in Oxfordshire.

He went on to gain a Masters degree in politics from the University of Edinburgh.

He was previously engaged to American architect, Dara Huang.

The couple went on to have a son together who is named Christopher Woolf Mapelli Mozzi, affectionately known as Wolfie.

After the couple were married, Bea became stepmother to Edo’s four-year-old son Wolfie.

Edoardo co-parents his son with his ex-partner Dara Huang.

The four-year-old divides his time between his mother and father and has done so since they separated in 2018.

It is believed that Beatrice and Edoardo are living at Beatrice’s apartment at St James’s Palace and Wolfie is likely spending stints with the couple periodically during lockdown.

How old is Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi?

Today, November 19, marks the 37th birthday of Edoardo.

He was born at Portland Hospital in West End, London, to British Olympian Alessandro Mapelli-Mozzi and Nikki Williams-Ellis.

Through his father, he is a member of an Italian noble family whose ancestral seat is the Villa Mapelli Mozzi in the Bergamo province of Italy.
