Princess Beatrice welcomes baby girl with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi


There’s another royal baby in the family! 

Princess Beatrice, granddaughter to Queen Elizabeth II and eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, welcomed her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, a baby girl, Buckingham Palace announced Monday.

The newest member of the British royal family was born Saturday just before midnight local time at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London – a different location from other royal births. She weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces, per the palace. 

“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news,” a release from the palace said. “The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.”

This is the royal couple’s first child together, who will be eleventh in line to the British throne. Mozzi, CEO of architecture/design studio Banda Property, is also father to a young son from a previous relationship with American architect and designer Dara Huang.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf,” the palace said.

Princess Beatrice, 33, and Mozzi, 37, tied the knot in July 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic during a private, low-key ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor. They were joined by close family including Beatrice’s grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and the late Prince Philip. 

Beatrice wore a vintage Norman Hartnell dress loaned by the queen, Buckingham Palace told USA TODAY in a statement at the time.

Mozzi marked their first anniversary on July 17 with an emotional love note on his verified Instagram account. 

“I can’t believe it has been 1 year,” he wrote with heart, bride and ring emojis. “Every second of every day since has been so full of joy, happiness, laughter and love. You are the kindest, loveliest and most beautiful person in the world. Thank you my darling for every second.”

Days earlier, Princess Beatrice showed off her baby bump alongside Mozzi at the Wimbledon tennis championships, wearing a chic black-and-white polka-dotted dress.

Queen Elizabeth now has 11 great-grandchildren, spanning from Prince William and Duchess Kate’s 8-year old son George (third in line to the throne) to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s 3-month-old daughter Lilibet.

Princess Beatrice’s newborn is the second grandchild of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie, welcomed her first child, a son named August, with husband Jack Brooksbank in February.
