The couple, who were set to wed at St. James’s Palace in London on May 29 with a reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II to follow at Buckingham Palace, confirmed the news Thursday.
“There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time,” a spokesperson for the couple told People. “There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”
The U.K. government announced on Thursday that the nationwide lockdown would continue at least three more weeks.
In early March, a royal insider said that COVID-19 could impact Beatrice and Mozzi’s nuptials.
Mozzi, 37, the son of France-based Count Alessandro “Alex” Mapelli-Mozzi, proposed to Beatrice, 31, during a romantic trip to the Italian island of Capri last September.
