As the summer takes hold, it’s brought plenty of royal surprises with it. A new set of challenges in Spain, a welcome return for visits to some of the most famous royal residences in Europe as lockdown eases and, perhaps the biggest shock of all, a royal wedding.

July 2020 is the month that Princess Beatrice of York married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and they did it without anyone knowing until the register was signed. It was a special day for them and a happy moment in a year filled with challenges and uncertainty. Join Brittani Barger, Moniek Bloks and Lydia Starbuck for this special Royal Central podcast.
