Princess Beatrice Is a 'Very Hands-on Stepmom' to New Husband's 4-Year-Old Son

Princess Beatrice is now a wife — and a stepmom!

When Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter wed Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Friday, they had a very special person serve as both best man and page boy: Edoardo's 4-year-old son Wolfie, who wore pale blue silk shorts with an ivory silk shirt by Amaia.

This marks the first time since Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall married Prince Charles in 2005 that a member of the British royal family stepped into the position of stepmother. Beatrice is the first of her generation — and first grandchild of the monarch — to do so.

"Beatrice is a wonderful and very hands-on stepmom," a source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue.

About 20 close friends and family — including Beatrice's parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, and grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip — attended the socially distanced ceremony.

"The wedding was incredibly romantic, with a pastel summer garden theme," the source added.
