Princess Beatrice, 31, announced this morning after only 11 months of dating that she was engaged to property magnate Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 34, this morning.

Although many assumed that the favorite location for her to marry would be the St. George's Chapel in Windsor, bookmakers have said they are more likely to marry at Westminster Abbey – where her mother, the Duchess of York, married.

The chances for her to marry at Westminster Abbey are set at 2/1, while St George's Chapel in Windsor, also famous for being the location for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with a probability of 5/1.

Other possible locations are St Paul & # 39; s, which have a rating on 3/1 and St James & # 39; s Place with a rating of 10/1. Last week, Ladbrokes also saw betting on a 2020 marriage for Beatrice and her now fiancé suspend.

Beatrice started dating last October with the Italian property developer, 34, who is father-of-one and today showed off her engagement ring as she posed for smiling engagement photos.

If Beatrice gets married at Westminster Abbey, this could reflect her mother's marriage. The Duchess of York married Prince Andrew at the site in 1986, four months after the announcement of their engagement. About 10,000 people followed the couple when they saw their first kiss on the palace balcony.

In addition to following her mother's footsteps, if she married at the grand location, she would also use the same abbey as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – who married there in April 2011.

The couple was accompanied by friends who had chartered their own private boat to the beach, which is only accessible by sea.

Further black-and-white photos taken by Misan Harriman at Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park, show the couple sitting comfortably together and giggling and pulling playful faces.

Edoardo placed the photos on his Instagram account and added the moving tribute: You will never be alone my love, my heart is your home. Hand in hand today, tomorrow and forever. & # 39;

Their engagement means that Beatrice is the first among the young generation of royals to take on a stepchild, because Edoardo was previously engaged for three and a half years to the mother of his child, Dara Huang, from whom he last separated.
