Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have welcomed their first child into the world, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. The couple is officially parents to a little daughter.
This is their first child together, however, Eduardo has already been down this road, he shares five-year-old son Wolfie with his ex-fiancée Dara Huang.
She will also be the second grandchild of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York. With their younger daughter Princess Eugenie having given birth to son August in February.
Little August doesn’t have a title, however, his slightly younger cousin will and it, surprisingly, isn’t connected to the British royals!
Titles in the British royal family are always passed down from the father’s side of the family, and as Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank does not have a title, and their son also does not have one. The only way that could change in the future is if the Queen decided to grant a peerage to Jack.
Edoardo Mappelli Mozzi is officially Count Mozzi, retaining the title as his family was part of the Italian nobility before the country became a republic back in 1946.
Following on, that means that the couple’s baby will be passed on the title of Nobile Donna (Noble Woman).
The royal baby’s official birth announcement was made on Monday afternoon via Buckingham Palace. In a statement, the palace said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London. The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
