Princess Beatrice and husband Edoadro Mapelli Mozzi welcome the birth of their baby girl and new addition to the Royal Family.

Buckingham Palace released a statement confirming the news. The baby was born on September 18 at the Chelsea and West Minister Hospital in London.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple is looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christoper Woolf,” the statement read.

Princess Beatrice is stepmother to Mapelli Mozzi’s son, Wolfie. The couple originally had different wedding plans after announcing their engagement in September 2019.  The princess and her “prince charming” real-estate developer married in July 2020 in front of 20 close friends and family members. Queen Elizabeth and her late husband Prince Phillip attended the wedding. The ceremony took place in Windsor Great Park, not too far from Windsor Castle.

The couple announced they were expecting in May 2021. The arrival of the baby marks Queen Elizabeth’s 12th great-grandchild and the second grandchild for the Princess’s parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.

Earlier this year Princess Eugenie, the younger sister of Beatrice, welcomed her son August, in February with her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Princess Beatrice’s newborn daughter will be 11th in line for the throne. The baby will also gain the title of noble donna from her father’s side. Mapelli Mozzi’s father is Count Alessandro Mapelli of northern Italy. He is the only male descendant of his royal family and his new daughter will inherit the Italian title.

Princess Beatrice spread her joy of being a new mother on social media. She posted on Twitter that she was “so delighted to share the news of the safe arrival of our daughter.”

Beatrice is not a full-time working royal, but is Vice President of partnerships and strategy at Afiniti, an artificial intelligence software firm. She is also involved with numerous charities.
