In the wake of Prince Andrew's trainwreck BBC interview, the Queen's reported favourite son stepped back from royal duties and reportedly had his 60th birthday party cancelled by HRH. Now, the scandal is impacting his daughter's private life with Princess Beatrice's engagement party, which was originally planned for December 18th, being rescheduled.

Beatrice and her fiancé, property tycoon Edo Mapelli Mozzi, were reportedly planning to celebrate their upcoming wedding at London restaurant, the Chiltern Firehouse, next Wednesday, but have changed the date due to concerns that Prince Andrew's attendance will bring too much unwanted attention to the evening.
They decided "to change the date of her engagement party...because of fears there will be too many photographers outside—looking for him [Prince Andrew]," the Daily Mail reports.
The couple were reportedly worried their initial choice of venue was "far too high-profile given the sensitive time her family is going through" and are planning to reschedule to something more private at a later date.
Prince Andrew and Buckingham Palace continues to deny the royal slept with Virginia Roberts while she was underage and sex trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein, a registered sex offender who died in an apparent suicide earlier this year in jail.
