Princess Beatrice, who recently married British-Italian count Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a surprise ceremony on 17 July, is the subject of a super romantic new post from her new husband. Aww! Taking to his personal Instagram account, Edo (who works as a property developer) also shared an unseen photograph from their nuptials, along with a poem written by E. E. Cummings, all about carrying your lover’s heart with you wherever you go. So sweet.
The picture of the newlyweds is equally as breathtaking as the poetry too; it shows the pair holding hands in the shade of a tree and Beatrice looks every inch the princess that she quite literally is.
Edo tagged the location as the Royal Lodge, where it’s reported the pair have been staying for some time with Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, and father, Prince Andrew (part of the reason being, it’s believed, is so that Andrew could walk her down the aisle without breaking any social distancing rules).
As for that aforementioned poem, the words shared by Edo go a little something like this:
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
There were plenty of other sweet tributes paid on the big day itself too, with Beatrice’s bouquet having been carefully selected to uphold an important tradition passed down by royal brides who wed before her. As for her dress, it’s one that The Queen likely more than approved of – seeing as it’s one from her own personal archive (that was customised for her granddaughter’s special occasion).
It’s reported that the wedding was sparsely attended, due to coronavirus restrictive measures dictating that no more than 30 guests be in attendance, and that Prince William and Kate Middleton were not there to celebrate in person. The royal couple did however share well wishes to Beatrice and Edo on Instagram.
