Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie quietly did a great thing for the NHS workers who are facing the toughest time at their jobs amid the coronavirus pandemic. The York sisters reportedly delivered care packages to the health workers who have been challenged to save thousands of lives as the United Kingdom grapples with rising coronavirus infection.
According to Tatler, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie went to the Hammersmith Hospital on Wednesday, March 18, with their mother, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. The dropped off care packages for doctors, nurses and orderly included food, toiletries and household cleaning products.
According to Daily Express, Princess Eugenie's husband Jack Brooksbank took part in the deliveries as well. The York royals are planning to do a similar thing and bring much-needed supplies to other hospitals in Chelsea, Westminster and Slough.
The Duchess of York is also working with a known British chocolate brand to bring treats to hospital workers. Fergie shared on her social media that she has spoken to the Cadbury family, who promised to donate Love Cocoa and Cadbury treats to the NHS staff, especially in the ICU units.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice might consider eloping with her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi instead of having a traditional royal wedding. The couple is set to marry on May 29 with a special wedding reception at the Buckingham Palace gardens.
However, since social engagements have been canceled to stop the spread of the virus, reports revealed that the York princess and Edo might just elope and have their big wedding reception in the few months. According to reports, Princess Beatrice and Edo might decide to have just two witnesses to their ceremony.
Buckingham Palace has not yet issued a new statement regarding Princess Beatrice and Edo's wedding plans. However, it has been confirmed that the garden reception will not push through.
Princess Beatrice and Edo are reportedly looking forward to exchanging their vows. However, they are also aware that they can't bring unnecessary risks, especially to their wedding guests like Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who are both vulnerable to COVID-19.
There are also speculations that Princess Beatrice could delay her wedding to Edo until 2021. Royalist Omid Scobie in the podcast show HeirPod said that it's one other consideration the couple are looking into. The U.K. government recently changed its stance and strictly ordered British citizens to stay at home instead of limiting social gatherings.
Princess Beatrice delayed her wedding plans a few times before, following her father, Prince Andrew's, controversial BBC interview.
