The biggest clue yet that Princess Beatrice will announce her engagement very soon

Princess Eugenie

Princess Beatrice has been with her boyfriend since last year, and it seems things could be about to get more serious.

The 30-year-old has been getting closer and closer to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and they’ve even been spotted on double date with Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.

But it seems their relationship could be about to become more serious, as they are thought to be announcing their engagement very soon.

While there’s been no official announcement yet, the big clue comes from betting company Ladbrokes, who have now suspended bets on an imminent engagement.

Alex Apati from Ladbrokes told HELLO!: “There's been plenty of interest in this over the last few days and with the two seemingly smitten, we're banking on an announcement being made before the year is out – so strap yourself in for a 2020 royal wedding!"

Even though this could simply be due to speculation, a flurry of bets could also suggest that insider information might have been leaked.

Just before Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November 2017, several companies completely suspended bets.

Ladbrookes’ Jessica Bridge told the Standard four days before the official announcement: “All bets are off when it comes to Harry and Meghan walking down the aisle next year.” So we wouldn't be surprised if the rumours turned out to be true!

Beatrice and Edoardo’s relationship started last year, and the two had their first public appearance in March this year at an event at the National Portrait Gallery.

The real estate millionaire has also attended family events, such as the wedding of Beatrice's second cousin once removed, Ella Windsor.

The loved-up couple were joined by Beatrice’s mum Fergie, and Edo is also said to be getting close to her dad Prince Andrew.
