The wedding was due to take place on Friday May 29. However, the couple chose to cancel the wedding after large gatherings were banned by the government. Now, the daughter of Sarah Ferguson and the Duke of York has appeared in a video message for the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.
The video was made to highlight the support they are providing amid the coronavirus crisis.
Beatrice, who is patron of the charity, was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was just seven years old.
Sharing the video on their Twitter page, the charity posted: “Our patron, HRH Princess Beatrice, has shared a message about the support Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity is providing during the current crisis.
“Do get in touch if we can help.”
In the clip, Beatrice says: “This is an incredibly challenging time.
“For the world and the United Kingdom. As patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, I just wanted to send this message to say the Helen Arkell charity is open for business.
“Yes, they are doing things online at the moment rather than face to face, but their incredible team of specialists is here to help whenever you need them.
“Whether that is online courses, tuition sessions, or their online helpline, please get in touch.
Beatrice and Edoardo were also of course forced to cancel their reception at Buckingham Palace gardens.
It would have been the first time the Queen has hosted a wedding party within the grounds of her London residence since Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials in 2011.
The 31-year-old announced her engagement to property developer Edoardo in September 2019.
The groom-to-be proposed with a bespoke diamond ring, designed by Mayfair atelier Shaun Leane, during a romantic getaway in Italy.
Elsewhere in the Royal Family, Prince Louis has already shown he has a creative side just like his mother.
The Duchess of Cambridge shared pictures of the rainbows he painted as a symbol of hope during the coronavirus lockdown.
The young Prince joined in in creating the symbolic rainbows, which have been spotted in windows across the country.
The aim is to boost people’s spirits during what is a difficult time for many people as we enter another couple of weeks of lockdown.
The young Prince’s poster features in a set of photographs released by the family ahead of his second birthday on Thursday.
The photos were taken by Kate at the family’s Norfolk home earlier this month.
This comes as no surprise as Kate has always been a keen photographer and artist herself.
The duchess is known for taking keen interest into the arts and fashion industry.
