Get set for a spring royal wedding!

British Princess Beatrice, 31, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, will tie the knot with her Italian real estate magnate fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, in The Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in London on Friday, May 29.

Queen Elizabeth II will then host a private reception for the couple in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, according to a statement released by the British Royal Family on Friday.

The couple reportedly started dating in 2018 and got engaged in September.

Princess Eugenie, Beatrice’s sister, confirmed the engagement on Instagram at the time, writing she was “so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo.”

Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank married at Windsor Castle in October 2018.

It’s currently unclear what role Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, will play during the nuptials. He stepped back from public duties in November following increased scrutiny over his friendship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The announcement also prompted speculation on social media over the possible attendance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are currently in Canada after their decision in January to leave their roles as “senior” members of the royal family.
