All eyes have been on Princess Beatrice since reports emerged of a relationship with 35-year-old property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and it looks like they just made it official during a gala on Tuesday night.
Beatrice, and her reported boyfriend arrived at London’s National Portrait Gallery, where the two showed off their royal couple style.
Beatrice wore a $US9,350 velvet midi dress by ALAÏA in a deep shade of red. The dress featured a voluminous ruffled design at the skirt, which she paired with a sparkling matching belt.
Mozzi was at her side in a classic sleek tuxedo with a bow tie.
Reports of their relationship emerged in November 2018, when The Sun cited anonymous sources who said that the pair began dating in September 2018. That same month, the Daily Mail reported that Mozzi ended his engagement with former fiancée Dara Huang a few months before he and Beatrice began dating. Mozzi and Huang have a son together, who the Daily Mail reported was aged 2 at the time of its November report.
Unnamed sources also told The Sun that the pair could possibly get married in 2019. If true, another royal wedding might be on the horizon.
Representatives for the royal family did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
