A member of the British Royal family Princess Beatrice Eugenie of York caused controversy back at home after she posted photos of her vacation in Kenya.
The Princess posted on Instagram that she spent the New Year holiday with her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Lamu Island, Kenya.
The photos caused a storm as British citizens reminded the couple that it was the same island that Edoardo proposed to his ex Dara Huang.
“Her Royal Highness, Princess Beatrice of York with her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and his family on a beach on Lamu, an island off Kenya,” read the post.
The 30-year-old and her beau looked smitten as they strolled hand in hand and felt the sand between their toes while on the beach.
Edo’s family is reported to own a private luxury home at the secluded tropical coastal island.
He also came under fire for initiating his relationship with Beatrice while he was reportedly still living with Dara and their son.
According to British publications, a source stated that Queen Elizabeth II‘s granddaughter would never have become involved with him if his former relationship hadn’t come to a complete end.
“She would never allow herself to break into another couple’s happiness, especially if there was a small child,” communicated the Palace insider.
Princess Beatrice was born in 1988 and is the first child of The Duke of York Prince Andrew and Sarah who is the Duchess of York. She is the fifth granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II.
