If tabloid reports are to be believed, Princess Beatrice has got a new boyfriend – and things could be getting serious.
The 30-year-old royal has been dating Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi for two months, according to the Daily Mail. The newspaper notes that the pair were set up through mutual friends and the princess is said to have introduced her new love interest to her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York.

Mozzi, 34, is the CEO of Banda Property, a property development and interior design company. The businessman (who is said to be a multi-millionaire) set up the organisation, which finds “London’s most desirable properties” for its clients, back in 2007. He has reportedly been married once before and has a two-year-old son.
Although it’s still early days, it’s thought that Beatrice introduced Mozzi as her boyfriend at a recent party held by Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal. And there’s already talk of an engagement.
“They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad,” a source told The Sun. “Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time.
“They could even be tying the knot in 2019 – it’s already been discussed by her friends.”
Beatrice split from her previous boyfriend, Dave Clarke, in August 2016. Following news of the break-up, reports claimed that their decision to end their long-lasting relationship was “mutual”. Clark married American advertising executive , Lynn Anderson, at a ceremony in Italy in July this year.
