Princess Beatrice 'moving very quickly' with new millionaire boyfriend

Princess Beatrice is off the market.

Sources tell multiple outlets that the British royal, 30, has a new boyfriend and is so smitten with him that it shouldn't come as a surprise if an engagement happens in the near future.

The Daily Mail reports that Beatrice has been dating Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 34, for around two months and introduced him to friends as her boyfriend at a party just last week. They were reportedly introduced by a mutual friend and have a "real laugh together."

"They've been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad," a source told The Sun. "Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn't surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time."

Mozzi has been married once before and has a young son, Wolfie, from that marriage. He's the multi-millionaire CEO to property developing company Banda Property, which specializes in finding properties discreetly for wealthy clients.

Insiders suspect that the couple, who met a month before Beatrice's sister, Princess Eugenie, wed Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle on October 12, is so serious that they could be headed down the aisle sometime next year.

"They could even be tying the knot in 2019," the source continued. "It's already been discussed by her friends."

News of her exciting new relationship comes two years after her most recent romance, with American Dave Clark, ended in 2016 after a decade. Especially considering that Clark has already gotten married since their split, those around the princess are over the moon that she's found someone new.

"Everyone is thrilled that Bea is so happy and in such a good place right now," an insider told The Sun.
