We can forgive Princess Beatrice for being disappointed with her grandmother yesterday, after her father was largely expelled from the royal family.
Her stepson’s mother was singing the Queen’s praises. Dara Huang, who was previously betrothed to the princess’s husband, Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi, proudly posed next to a portrait of the king after he was granted British citizenship yesterday.
“I am very proud to be British,” Dara said. “Thank you for taking me home.”
Dara Huang, who was previously betrothed to the princess’s husband, Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi, proudly posed next to a portrait of the king after he was granted British citizenship yesterday.
The 39-year-old American-born architect received her degree after the citizenship ceremony, which is believed to have been held in Kensington Town Hall in west London.
Dara was not only welcomed in this country, but the granddaughter of the Queen embraced her. Dara shares custody of her son Christopher Wolff, better known as Wolfie, with Bea’s husband.
The princess has become so close to Wolfie that she was recently seen wearing a necklace with his initial “W”. She let him act as the best man at her wedding, even though he was only four years old at the time.
It made him the youngest person in history to play a role in a British royal wedding. The closing ceremony was held at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Great Park in 2020, with the Queen and Prince Philip among the worshipers.
“I am very proud to be British,” Dara said. “Thank you for taking me home.”
Dara, who recently appeared on Britain’s Channel 4’s new real estate show, is so close to her ex-fiancé, Edo, that in 2020 she moved her London office from Clerkenwell to the same Kensington building where he founded his real estate development company.
Dara, whose maternal grandfather immigrated to the United States from Taiwan, says she is very grateful to Britain. “It’s yet another proof that dreams do come true,” she says. Thank you Britain and all you stand for.

Earl’s Right Hand describes Ed Sheeran’s environmental plans as ‘misleading’
For the pop star trying to bolster their real estate portfolio and glowing image in the press, buying vast tracts of land to “rebuild” is a no-brainer. So it’s no wonder Ed Sheeran vowed to buy as much land as possible in order to “bring it back to nature.”
But I heard it disturbed the gentry, who felt that Ed, which lived between Notting Hill and Suffolk, was interfering in matters of which he knew nothing.
