Princess Beatrice has given birth to her first child, a baby girl, and she is set to receive a special title.
The couple welcomed a six-pound, two-ounce little girl last week in London, with a statement reading: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18 September 2021, at 23.42 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London."
And while the couple are yet to announce the name of their daughter, she is set to believed to be handed a title.
This is not because the Queen is expected to offer her one, but because Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a count.
This means that any of his children will inherit a count or countess title. As he is a count, his wife Beatrice is automatically a countess.
Edoardo's dad, Count Allessandro Mapelli Mozzi, told the Daily Mail: “Edoardo is the only male descendent taking the family into the next generation.
“He is a count, his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna.”
Princess Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie was quick to offer her congratulations to the couple.
On her Instagram, she shared a sweet photograph of Beatrice and Edoardo and said: “To my dearest Beabea and Edo Congratulations on your new angel. I can’t wait to meet her and I’m so proud of you. We’re going to have so much fun watching our children grow up.”
The baby, whose name has not yet been revealed, is the Queen’s 12th great grandchild and is 11th in line to the throne.
Princess Beatrice’s close friend, Holly Branson, 39, took to her Instagram to share her congratulations. “It’s a girl Sending so much love and the biggest congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Edo. Such wonderful news and I can’t wait to meet her," she wrote.
Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2020 at the Chapel of All Saints on the Windsor estate. Her wedding was only attended by close friends and family following a cancellation of a larger wedding in the spring because of the lockdown restrictions. It was the first Royal wedding behind closed doors for 235 years. The couple posed for pictures alongside the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh.
Princess Beatrice wore a beautiful Norman Hartnell gown, which she borrowed from the Queen, who had first worn it in 1962. It was remodelled for the occasion by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin, who designed Princess Beatrice’s cousin, Zara Tindall’s wedding dress.
Although Princess Beatrice’s daughter is the first baby for the couple, her husband is father to a son, Christopher ‘Woolfie’ Woolf, with his former partner, Dara Huang.
Princess Beatrice’s sister Eugenie gave birth to a son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank on 9 February this year. His middle name was a tribute to the Queen’s late husband, and Eugenie’s grandfather, Prince Philip.
