Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi must be serious because the royal has decided to make things red carpet official. The 20-year-old royal stepped out publicly for the first time with her property developer beau on Tuesday night, as they joined Kate Middleton at an elegant gala event at the National Portrait Gallery.
Beatrice wore a red velvet dress with a cinched belt, while Mapelli Mozzi sported a classic tux.
Speculation began last November that Beatrice was dating the 34-year-old multi-millionaire property tycoon, who has a 2-year-old son from a previous relationship. “Edoardo is a friend of Beatrice’s family,” a source previously told People.
E! News notes that Edoardo has been a friend of the royal family for years: His late stepfather, Christopher Shale, was a friend of Beatrice’s parents, and Fergie and Edoardo follow each other on Twitter.
Princess Beatrice and her longtime boyfriend Dave Clark split in 2016 after nearly a decade of dating.
