According to reports the couple, who were due to tie the knot at the Chapel Royal of St James's Palace on 29 May, wed in secret today.

Mail Online reports that the ceremony was attended by close family including the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

It is likely that Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson were in attendance, as the ceremony took place in the Royal Chapel of All Saints, on the grounds of the Duke and Duchess of York's home in Windsor Great Park.

It is not known whether Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank attended the wedding.

Weddings of up to 30 people can take place under current UK government guidelines.

Beatrice and Edoardo's decision to cancel their wedding was announced in April of this year. A spokesperson for the couple told PEOPLE magazine: “There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding."

"They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time. There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet."

Beatrice and 37-year-old Edoardo became engaged last September during a break in Italy.

"We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together, and can't wait to be married," they said at the time.

"We share so many similar interests and values and we know this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness."
