"Therefore, the planned reception in the Buckingham Palace Gardens will not take place.

"The couple will carefully consider government advice before deciding whether a private marriage might take place amongst a small group of family and friends."

Beatrice and Edoardo were due to be married at the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace on May 29. The couple got engaged in Italy in September 2019.
