The Telegraph is reporting that that Princess Beatrice and Edo Mapelli Mozzi have canceled their Buckingham Palace wedding reception on May 29.  The garden reception was to have taken place after the private wedding at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace.

“Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi are very much looking forward getting married but are equally aware of the need to avoid undertaking any unnecessary risks in the current circumstances.

“In line with government advice for the UK and beyond, the couple are reviewing their arrangements for 29th May.

“They are particularly conscious of government advice in relation to both the wellbeing of older family members and large gatherings of people.

“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.”

WOW! Poor girl has had nothing but problems arranging for this wedding.

The new guidelines state that weddings are now limited to a maximum of 5 people for the time being. The officiant, the bride and groom and 2 witnesses. I think Beatrice will end up rescheduling. These guidelines mean that even parents and siblings will be off limits. As close as Beatrice is to her family I imagine it would break her heart to wed under these circumstances.

She should just postpone the wedding til 2021. Things might be much better for her by then.
