She has twice been forced to put off announcing a date due to royal scandals.
Controversy over her father Andrew’s links to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and Prince Harry and wife Meghan’s decision to step down have seen announcements axed.
But insiders say Beatrice, 31, and fiance Edo Mapelli, 36, will wed on Friday, May 29, with a reception at Buckingham Palace.
However they have yet to confirm a venue for the ceremony itself.
A source said: “The decision has been delayed repeatedly because of all the issues, but finally they have something that seems to work — and barring any problems that should be when it goes ahead.
“The Queen has asked everyone to come together to put on a united front.
“The press officers of all the palaces hope to portray the Beatrice wedding as the big event that brings the family back together again.
“Aides know this will be a tough job, but it’s all they can do not just to save the wedding, but potentially the monarchy’s reputation.”
The couple are planning to ask guests for charitable donations instead of gifts.
EPSTEIN ACCUSERS WANT ANDREW TO TALK TO FBI
Four Jeffrey Epstein accusers have written an open letter begging Prince Andrew to talk to the FBI for the sake of his “daughters and their children”.
The group urged the 59-year-old royal to “be on the right side of history” after he was accused of giving “zero co-operation” to the ongoing investigation into Epstein’s inner circle, according to the letter shared with the Mail on Sunday.
“Prince Andrew, the world is watching,” starts the letter, written by an accuser using the name “KiKi” and countersigned by three unnamed accusers all represented by lawyer Lisa Bloom, the New York Post reports.
“Please help the US authorities with anything you may have observed in your time spent with Jeffrey Epstein,” plead the four, saying his “privileged life” gives him the power to “influence and create positive change”.
“Do it for the victims who have lived a life of suffering, shame and humiliation. You can make things better for us and for future generations with your co-operation,” they wrote.
“Do it for your daughters and their children. Do it for your family, so that they may be proud that you have taken the decent and moral path.”
The four told the prince they are “trying to right wrongs, despite our crippling fears” — and accusing him of “perpetuating them through apathy, inaction and denial.”
“You have a chance to be on the right side of history,” they wrote, the UK paper said.
“The world is watching. Please look past your fear and help those who could not help themselves.”
Prince Andrew — who was accused of having sex with Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre — was booted from royal duties in November following his disastrous attempts to justify his close links to the paedophile. He has denied Giuffre’s allegation.
Manhattan US lawyer Geoffrey Berman attacked the royal for giving “zero co-operation” despite repeated attempts to talk to him about the ongoing investigation into Epstein’s activities following his death in his Manhattan lockup last August.
Prince Andrew and Buckingham Palace have always vehemently denied the accusations against him.
Meanwhile, a separate report claims Prince Andrew once called Roberts Giuffre a “very sick girl” — and said he could “shrug and move on” from her damning accusations against him.
The royal allegedly made the alarming comment to a concerned pal in 2011, shortly after he was first linked to the sex scandal involving his paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein, according to the Mail on Sunday, which says it has seen the exchange.
It is at least the second time the royal appeared to have made direct reference to Roberts Giuffre — despite claiming in last year’s disastrous BBC interview that he did not remember meeting the woman who alleges she was trafficked for sex with him three times from when she was 17, the New York Post reports.
Prince Andrew reportedly made his comments in an exchange with his friend Jonathan Rowland who had asked him, “Hope the press isn’t getting you down to [sic] much”.
“Not at all!” Prince Andrew replied, according to the report. “She is a very sick girl apparently. The innuendo is the problem. But there is nothing that one can do for that! Shrug and move on.”
Rowland later asked him about life “in the trenches,” saying, “Hope you are surviving,” the UK paper said.
The revelation comes after Prince Andrew’s second cousin has insisted that the scandal-scarred royal is not a paedophile — he’s just “an idiot.”
“What can he say? ‘I’m sorry I was an idiot’?” Christina Oxenberg, 57, asked Fox News of escalating pressure for the disgraced prince to talk to the FBI about his links to late paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.
“He did idiotic things. But he’s not a paedophile,” Oxenberg stressed.
