Meghan Markle was visibly angry when Princess Beatrice and Eduardo received a large royal estate as a gift for their wedding anniversary. Beatrice and Eduardo, who kicked off their birthday celebrations with a delightful appearance at Wimbledon on Friday, appeared to be caught up in the excitement of the tennis championship.
The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson made her Wimbledon debut on July 14, 2023 at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, sporting a beautiful pink ensemble reminiscent of the iconic Barbie doll.
In the royal box, Princess Beatrice was accompanied by her husband Eduardo Mapelli-Mozzi and her relative Lady Helen Taylor. Although surrounded by her family, Beatrice seemed to only have eyes for Eduardo as they shared laughs and jokes, their body language reflecting.
The couple seemed in love and in good spirits, which is no surprise as they celebrated their third wedding anniversary just days later.
Reports suggest that as an extravagant anniversary present, the couple will own a property in the Cotswolds, believed to be one of the most expensive gifts they have received. Princess Beatrice and Eduardo currently have a Grace and Favor House at St James’s Palace in London, a royal estate owned by King Charles and rented out to family members as a favor.
Other members of the royal family, such as Princess Anne (72) and Princess Alexandra (86), also have houses of grace and favor at St James’s Palace.
Beatrice and Eduardo, who reside in a four-bedroom apartment at the London Palace, previously lived in the same apartment during Beatrice’s university years when she studied history at Goldsmiths University, sharing it with her younger sister, Princess Eugenie.
However, at the end of 2021, Beatrice and Eduardo reportedly bought a Cotswolds mansion in Gloucestershire for £3.5million. Since they are not working members of the royal family, their decision to leave St James’s Palace and move into a private residence makes perfect sense.
The Princess and her family have been busy renovating the farmhouse on their new property, including converting an outbuilding into a guesthouse. Additionally, they expressed a desire to have a party barn and installed a six-foot-tall security gate for their security concerns. The Sun reported the details, highlighting the couple’s plans and efforts to create a comfortable and secure home in the Cotswolds.
