Princess Beatrice has been hit with some bad news
The Queen's granddaughter has been forced to postpone her wedding amid the coronavirus outbreak around the world.
The wedding was set for the 29th of May, and was shaping up nicely to be one of the biggest Royal events of the year.
Beatrice would be marrying her fiancee, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, an Italian property tycoon.
This news comes following the announcement that the Buckingham Palace Garden Party would be axed, as well as the Chelsea flower show, a favorite of Queen Elizabeth's.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson had this to say on the cancellation;
'Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward to getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances. In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May. They are particularly conscious of government advice in relation to both the wellbeing of older family members and large gatherings of people. Therefore, the planned reception in the Buckingham Palace Gardens will not take place.'
It is thought that the annual Trooping the Color ceremony is set to be cancelled, as well as the Royal Ascot races. A sad day indeed for the Royal Family.
This will come as a real blow to Beatrice, who hasn't had the easiest year due to her father, Prince Andrew's exploits.
The wedding was set to be a somewhat low-key affair due to Andrew's current standing in the media. It remains to be seen whether or not he will walk Beatric down the aisle.
Time will tell whether or not a summer wedding is possible for Beatrice, though this crisis may last well into next winter.
