Princess Beatrice may announce her engagement to Edoardo Mapelli before the year ends.

Bookies Ladbrokes seem to be too confident about the couple’s upcoming nuptials that they have decided to suspend their bets. While speaking with The Sun, Ladbrokes spokesperson Alex Apati said that the announcement may happen within this year.

“Altar-bound Beatrice looks set to be the next royal to tie the knot and we’re now so confident of an announcement this year that we’ve suspended betting as a result,” the spokesperson said.

One of the couple’s friends also told the publication that things have been moving very quickly for Princess Beatrice and Mapelli so a wedding announcement could be imminent.

“They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together. They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad… Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time,” the pal said.

But the couple’s friend said that Princess Beatrice and Mapelli’s wedding may take place this year. However, it seems that this won’t be the case because there are only five months left before 2019 comes to a close.

What is more possible is for the couple to make an engagement announcement this year and to tie the knot next year.

Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice also made headlines this weekend after it was reported that they will be invited to the wedding of Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Ellie Goulding.

The “Love Me Like You Do” singer will tie the knot with Caspar Jopling next month. Goulding is good friends with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, so the royal siblings are expected to be there.

Goulding also reportedly invited Prince William and Kate Middleton to her nuptials, since they are also friends. But as of late, it is still unclear whether or not Prince William and Meghan Markle were invited. And if they were, it is also unclear if they will attend.
