Princess Beatrice made her first official appearance with new boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at a National Portrait Gallery gala this week.

Beatrice, 30, has been dating the 34-year-old divorcée since late last year, according to reports.

Moozzi is a property developer, who works as the CEO of Banda Property which he founded in 2007. He has a two-year-old son, Wolfie, from his previous marriage.

Princess Beatrice wore a $1,000 burgundy Alaïa dress and a laser-cut leather waist belt by the same label.

She paired the autumnal look with black tights and a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Daphne’ heels.

She split up with her longtime partner of a decade, Uber executive Dave Clark, in 2016.

In 2006, at the age of 17, Beatrice was briefly in a relationship with American Paolo Liuzzo. The pairing was met with controversy due to a previous conviction for assault and battery.
