It’s getting serious! Princess Beatrice and her new beau, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzia, made their relationship red-carpet official when they recently attended the 2019 Portrait Gala in London on March 12. The new couple showed their support at the glam event and helped raise funds for the National Portrait Gallery’s “Inspiring People” project.
Nearly a week later, Bea, 30, and her man — who goes by “Edo” — were seen celebrating their newfound love across the pond in New York City. Queen Elizabeth‘s granddaughter and Edo looked so happy as they walked hand-in-hand down the Manhattan streets.
