According to multiple sources, things are already so serious that the multi-millionaire has already met the Duke and Duchess of York.
E! News notes that Edoardo has been a friend of the royal family for years: His late stepfather, Christopher Shale, was a friend of Beatrice’s parents, and Fergie and Edoardo follow each other on Twitter.
Edoardo is - scandal! - divorced and a father of a two-year-old son named Wolfie.
Thankfully, this is no longer a deal breaker thanks to Prince Charles' marriage to Camilla and, of course, now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's pairing.
Who knows, maybe we'll have another royal wedding in the near future.
