Princess Beatrice sends handwritten thank you cards for wedding

Months after a private wedding in July, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo “Edo” Mapelli Mozzi are sending handwritten thank you cards to well-wishers.

In a post on the royal fan Instagram account, the Duchess of Wonderlnd, the royal couple sent a handwritten note alongside an official wedding photo.

The message read:

“Thank you so much for the wonderful note you so kindly sent to us on the occasion of our wedding this summer at Royal Lodge. Edo and I had a magical day filled with special moments with our families.

“We are so grateful to all those who have worked hard to protect our communities over the last few months, we owe them so much.”

The note then concluded with:

“Thank you for thinking of us as we begin our married life. Beatrice and Edo x.”

The couple were set to marry at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace, in May. Because of the pandemic, the couple postponed their wedding.

The Windsor ceremony was attended by only the couple’s parents, siblings, Edo’s son Wolfie, The Queen, and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Edo recently gave a rare insight into the couple’s married life during an interview with the Financial Times.

“My favourite room in my house is the kitchen. I’ve fallen in love with cooking again.

“It’s been the epicentre of our family life, and we come together for every meal. We are lucky enough to have a small vegetable garden, and we cook seasonally. Even my son has got involved.” Edoardo also added that the only “object I would never part with is my wedding ring”.
