PRINCESS Beatrice has cancelled plans to marry abroad so her gran, the Queen, can be there, HOAR can reveal.

The young royal, 31, wanted to tie the knot with Edo Mapelli, 36, in Italy to avoid focus on dad Prince Andrews link to paedo Jeffrey Epstein.

But The Queen, 93, and Prince Philip, 98, – who spent four days in hospital over Christmas – are scaling back their overseas travel and could not have gone.

It’s understood she was adamant she wanted to attend.

Prince Andrew has retired from public royal duties for the foreseeable future after his disastrous television interview about his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie married her husband Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel in 2018, and went on a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor to celebrate.

But it appears that Beatrice’s big day will be a low-key affair.

Officials confirmed the Queen has given permission for the wedding to be in the Chapel Royal, St Jamess Palace on May 29, with a private reception at Buckingham Palace.

Queen Victoria married Prince Albert at the chapel in 1840.
