Like the rest of us planning weddings in the middle of a global pandemic, Princess Beatrice had to scale things back for her big day. She had 20 guests at her wedding in Windsor on Friday, and in the lead-up to to the big day, they were reportedly all told to follow COVID-19 social-distance guidelines.

The reception was also a quiet, understated affair. The newlyweds invited 14 friends to Royal Lodge and they celebrated until early Saturday morning, per Hello! magazine. The party, like the wedding, followed COVID-19 social distance guidelines. But that didn't mean the post-nuptial bash couldn't be fun. Hello! reported that the party had jukeboxes, a dartboard, specialty cocktails, bespoke catering, and more. There was even a bouncy castle. Princess Beatrice's husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, has a 4-year-old son named Wolfie. But that doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyed by some of the adult guests, too.

Following the party, the guests retired to glamping pods that were set up in Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew's Windsor home. Beatrice and Mozzi have known each other for years, but they didn't start dating until the fall of 2018, when Beatrice's sister, Eugenie, married Jack Brooksbank.

Beatrice and Mozzi got engaged in Italy in September 2019. The wedding was initially scheduled for May 29 at St. James's Palace in London but was postponed because of the pandemic.

"We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement," the couple's statement read last year. "We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married. We share so many similar interests and values and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness."
