Prince Philip funeral: Prince Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi arrive at Windsor


Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi took part in his first royal ceremony since tying the knot with Princess Beatrice as the couple were among 30 guests at Prince Philip’s funeral.

Edoardo, 38, supported his wife Beatrice, 32, who he married in July last year, as she mourned the loss of her beloved grandfather, who passed away last Friday at the age of 99.

Beatrice, who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, wore a long collared jacket, believed to be a custom Claire Mischevani coat, as she attended St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, accompanied by her husband this afternoon for the funeral.

She paired her sophisticated ensemble with a round hat embellished with a large black bow and a pair of understated stiletto heels as she joined her family to mourn the loss of the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Beatrice and her husband joined other royals outside St George’s Chapel ahead of the funeral, including her younger sister Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, Kate Middleton and Zara and Mike Tindall, who have recently welcomed a child.

The Duke of Edinburgh showed his dedication for his two granddaughters by attending each of their weddings, most recently Beatrice’s intimate ceremony to Edoardo at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, in July last year. 

Looked up to as the patriarch of his family, Prince Philip became a mentor for younger royals who continued to turn to him over the years. Eugenie once described him as the rock of the family. 

The Queen’s four children, eight grandchildren and their respective spouses have come together today to support Her Majesty following the death of her husband last week at the age of 99. 

All 30 guests who attended the scaled back funeral amid the Covid-19 pandemic kept themselves protected by wearing black face masks covering both their noses and mouths.

THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S DEDICATION TO HIS GRANDDAUGHTERS: BEATRICE SHARES LESSON SHE LEARNT FROM HER GRANDFATHER WHILE EUGENIE NAMES SON AFTER PHILIP

The Duke of Edinburgh showed his dedication to his granddaughters in turn by making rare public appearances to attend Eugenie and Beatrice’s weddings.

In her last engagement before Philip’s death, Beatrice shared a lesson she learned from her grandfather explaining how he encouraged her not to become ‘obsessed with solutions’ and to focus on the journey to get there instead.

The Queen’s granddaughter divulged the words of wisdom inspired by the late Duke of Edinburgh while speaking speaking at a virtual event on March 31.

She was announcing her patronage with non-profit organisation 20:40 which aims to help young people collaborate on socio-economic issues. 

In a rare outing for Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh showed his dedication for his granddaughter by attending her intimate wedding to Edoardo at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, in July last year

When asked to share advice with young future leaders during the webinar, Beatrice told them not to become obsessed with the ‘solution’ while trying to solve problems because their journey will always have ‘twists and turns’. 

She went on to urge them not to become ‘disheartened’ by obstacles and to remain ‘focused’ on what they are trying to achieve, a lesson she said was inspired by her grandfather Prince Philip.

Speaking from her home, Beatrice, who donned a white and blue striped shirt, said: ‘One of the things that I’ve always been inspired by is keeping your curiosity and don’t be afraid to un-think and un-learn.

‘But also don’t feel like you have to have all the answers yourself, one of the things that has always helped me, and this actually is inspired by my grandfather, whose turning 100 this year, but you kind of become obsessed with solving the problem, don’t become obsessed with the solution. 

‘Because your route to actually finding a way to get through that problem will be different and the path will be different, and it might twist and turn. 

‘So don’t be disheartened if your first path is not the one you think you have to stick to. Keep focusing on what you’re trying to achieve and you’ll get there.’ 

The Duke of Edinburgh enjoyed a special bond with his grandchildren and made one of his last public appearances at Beatrice and Edoardo’s lockdown wedding in July 2020. 

Meanwhile, Eugenie paid tribute to her beloved grandfather earlier this year by naming her newborn son after him.

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank, who married in October 2018, named their first child, a son born in February, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

But tragically, due to lockdown restrictions, it is thought that Eugenie never had the opportunity to introduce her newborn sons to her grandfather before his death last Friday at the age of 99.

The Queen’s granddaughter also recently paid tribute to her beloved grandfather on Instagram earlier this week as she said she would remember his ‘spectacular life’. 

She shared the lengthy post alongside two pictures of her with the Duke of Edinburgh, who passed away last Friday at the age of 99. 

In the post, Eugenie said she ‘would remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read’ as well as her grandfather’s ‘favourite beer’ and BBQing ability.

She finished the statement by posting: ‘Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you.’ 

She posted: ‘⁣Dearest Grandpa, we all miss you. ⁣You would be so touched by all the tributes that have been shared with me the past few days. ⁣

⁣’People remember sitting next to you at a dinner, or shaking your hand once, who remember you saying hello in passing, or remember how much their DofE award meant to them. ⁣

⁣’I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy. ⁣

‘I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day.⁣  

‘I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer. ⁣

⁣’I will remember you in your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren.’

She finished the post by thanking the Duke for his service, before signing off: ‘With all my love, Eugenie.’

The royal shared two images alongside the emotional post, including one alongside sister Princess Beatrice on The Royal Balcony At The Investec Derby Festival At Epsom In Surrey in 2017.

Another showed Prince Philip patting a then eight-year-old Eugenie affectionately on the head on Christmas Day at Sandringham in 1998. 

Eugenie once described him as the rock of the family. 

Speaking in the 2016 ITV documentary Our Queen at Ninety, Princess Eugenie said of Philip: ‘I think Grandpa is incredible. He really is strong and consistent. He’s been there for all these years, and I think he’s the rock, you know, for all of us.’
