• Princess Beatrice's grandmother may not attend her royal wedding
  • Queen Elizabeth may skip Princess Beatrice's wedding on May 29
  • Princess Beatrice's wedding will still push through amid the coronavirus outbreak 

Queen Elizabeth may reportedly skip the royal wedding of Princess Beatrice on May 29 despite previous confirmation that she will be there together with the other members of the British clan.

This week, England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty released a statement regarding the deadly coronavirus outbreak and said that the pandemic will most likely reach its peak within the next 10 to 14 weeks. Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s royal wedding is slated to take place 11 weeks from now.

Shortly after Whitty’s statement, Buckingham Palace also gave the public update regarding Her Majesty.

“As a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances, changes are being made to the Queen’s diary commitments in the coming weeks. In consultation with the medical household and government, Her Majesty’s forthcoming visits to Cheshire and Camden will be rescheduled. Audiences will continue as usual,” the palace said.

As of late, there is still no word as to whether or not Princess Beatrice’s wedding will push through. However, some events in the United Kingdom have already been canceled.

In the United States, the World Health Organization, the government, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have agreed that events with expected guests of 250 and above should be canceled or postponed.

Meanwhile, the Queen is reportedly concerned about her possible absence at Princess Beatrice’s wedding especially after she advised the royal family to put a united front at the happy occasion.

Throughout the past couple of weeks, the monarchy has been struggling following the bombshell exit of Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle.

“The press officers of all the palaces hope to portray the Beatrice wedding as the big event that brings the family back together again. Aides know this will be a tough job, but it’s all they can do not just to save the wedding, but potentially the monarchy’s reputation,” a royal insider told The Sun.
