- Princess Beatrice's newest boyfriend is real estate millionaire Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
- The couple seem to be getting serious-and were just spotted together with Beatrice's mother, Sarah Ferguson, at the wedding of Beatrice's second cousin once removed, Ella Windsor.
Last fall, all eyes were on Princess Eugenie as she walked down the aisle to marry her longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. But in recent months, her sister Princess Beatrice is reportedly having a romance of her own.
Beatrice has allegedly been seeing businessman Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi for several months now, and it seems to be getting serious. Here's everything we know about him so far.
Recently, they've been taking their relationship into the spotlight.
Mozzi and Beatrice made their first public appearance at the National Portrait Gallery's 2019 Gala. Not long afterwards, they were spotted holding hands in New York City.
During the Bahrain Grand Prix, they took things to the next level, with Mozzi accompanying Beatrice on a family trip. Sarah Ferguson was even seen hanging out with the couple. And they just made a joint appearance at Ella Windsor's wedding to Thomas Kingston at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.
Mozzi is a friend of Beatrice's family.
Mozzi's stepfather was Christopher Shale, a British political operative and close friend of previous Prime Minister David Cameron, who died at the Glastonbury music festival in 2011. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson considered Shale a friend as well, and went to his funeral-as did Beatrice.
Fergie and Mozzi also follow each other on Twitter, although it's unclear how long that's been the case.
Through his father, he has some blue blood.
Mozzi's father, the first husband of his mother Nikki Shale, is Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi. Not that she traded down-the house Nikki and Christopher built together had six bedrooms, a gym, and a wine cellar, not to mention the croquet garden and orchard.
Nikki was also nominated for an MBE award-a royal honor-by David Cameron in 2016.
He co-founded a charity, which was inspired by his late stepfather's vision.
Mozzi is behind Cricket Builds Hope (CBH), an organization that teaches Rwandans how to play cricket. According to its website, "CBH harnesses the power of sport to promote reconciliation and tackle deep-seated social issues like gender inequality through specially tailored sessions run by CBH’s cricket coaching team."
The charity has its roots in Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation, which was founded by Christopher Shale to build the country's first grass cricket ground. Shale dreamed of expanding it into something larger, and after his death in 2011, his friends and family created CBH to do so in his memory.
He's definitely not in it for Beatrice's wealth-he's got plenty of his own.
Mozzi founded real estate firm Banda in 2007, and serves as its CEO to this day. The company specializes in finding and developing homes for wealthy clients. It must be doing well, as Mozzi is reportedly a multi-millionaire.
Mozzi has a son named Wolfie.
The 34-year-old has a toddler son, Wolfie, from a previous relationship-meaning that if things get serious, there could be a royal stepchild in the mix.
There's already talk of an engagement.
Granted, this came from The Sun, which also claimed that the couple just met in September. But a source for the tabloid says, "They could even be tying the knot in 2019-it's already been discussed by her friends."
