Prince Andrew might walk Princess Beatrice down the aisle during her wedding  despite the rumors claiming that the bride wants to ban her father on her big day.

The Duke of York is in hot water due to his connection to Jeffrey Epstein. However, despite the major scandal he is bringing to the royal family at present, he might still play a huge role at his daughter’s upcoming royal wedding.

According to Martin Robinson of Daily Mail, Princess Beatrice’s engagement is a rare piece of good news for Prince Andrew. He added that the duke might have the honor of walking his daughter down the aisle on her big day.

Prior to this, there were rumors claiming that Princess Beatrice might ban her father at her wedding. An insider said that Prince Andrew’s daughters were not happy with the scandal involving him and the bride-to-be doesn’t want any drama on her wedding day.

“Bea is seriously considering not inviting her father to the wedding because of all the Epstein drama,” a source told New Idea about Princess Beatrice’s plan to ban Prince Andrew on her big day.

“It’s all such a messy and disgraceful affair and Bea hates that her father is tied up in it all and she doesn’t want that drama ruining her wedding.”

Buckingham Palace has confirmed Princess Beatrice’s engagement to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Thursday shortly after Princess Eugenie leaked the big news on social media. The palace also announced that the next royal wedding will happen in 2020.

However, not everyone was happy with the announcement. Meghan Markle’s fans questioned the timing of the announcement and accused Princess Beatrice of stealing the Duchess of Sussex’s thunder because the announcement was made while Prince Harry and Markle were still on their South Africa tour.

However, some netizens also defended the Princess of York. One said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s engagement in South Africa is part of their job and  it’s not a major life event. Therefore, it’s not reasonable for Princess Beatrice to hold off her engagement announcement just because her cousins are working.
