Princess Beatrice, along with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and their one-year-old daughter Sienna may be among members of the Firm spending Christmas at Sandringham this year for the first time since 2019. As he is now married into the family, Mr Mozzi would be invited to join in the celebrations but even before their 2020 wedding, a break with royal tradition allowed him to attend.
The Christmas before they wed Beatrice and her then-fiancee attended the festivities with her family, although partners would normally not be allowed to attend the service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham unless they are married.
This rule was also broken for Meghan Markle back in 2017 when she spent Christmas in Norfolk, before she married Prince Harry in May 2018.
It is thought that this relaxing of tradition allowed Princess Beatrice to bring along Mr. Mozzi two years later.
Meghan spent three days with the royals over the holiday while her own family were thousands of miles away in the US.
However, just a few years before both the Princess of Wales and Mike Tindall had to wait until they married Prince William and Zara Phillips respectively until they were invited to Sandringham.
This year looks to be bittersweet for Beatrice as it will be the first Christmas without her beloved grandmother, the late Queen.
But it may be the first time she is able to spend it with her mother Sarah Ferguson since her divorce from Prince Andrew.

“For 30 years she used to have Christmas dinner on her own. But things are being done differently now.”
Royal biographer Ingrid Seward told The Mirror: “Now for the first time since the nineties, they will all be able to be at Sandringham together.
“It is a master stroke by King Charles. Andrew will be tucked out of sight with Fergie to look after him.
“They can visit the big house, use the amenities of the estate and have a jolly Christmas with their grandchildren – all out of sight.”
