Buckingham Palace announced on Friday 7 February the highly anticipated wedding date of Princess Beatrice, 31 to property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37, as May 29, and a royal expert and commentator revealed that the wedding birds were allowed a special request that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were not for their royal wedding day - what was the special request?
Princess Beatrice’s big day is expected to be more low key than the string of lavish royal weddings Britain has seen in recent years.
The wedding is likely to be a private affair and Buckingham Palace confirmed that it will not be broadcast on TV.
However, unlike Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day in 2018, Beatrice will have a very special element to her wedding.
Carly Kimblys, Royal Family commentator, exclusively told Express.co.uk that Princess Beatrice and Edo will have a special reception.

She said: “Princess Beatrice and Edoardo have been granted special permission by the Queen to host their wedding reception at Buckingham Palace.
“Even Prince Harry and Meghan were not allowed this privilege.”
While sister, Princess Eugenie and cousin, Prince Harry’s weddings were huge national events, neither of them had a Buckingham Palace reception.
Meghan and Harry had their reception at Frogmore House following the ceremony at St George's.
