A new royal baby is on the way!
Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their first child. The exciting announcement was shared by Buckingham Palace on Wednesday in a simple statement reading, “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year.”
The statement continued, “The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.”
The new baby will be Queen Elizabeth’s 12th great-grandchild following the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby in the next few weeks. The news of Beatrice’s pregnancy was shared on the third anniversary of Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
Beatrice and Edoardo’s baby will also be the second grandchild for Beatrice’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Her sister, Princess Eugenie, welcomed son August with husband Jack Brooksbank in February.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony last July. The bride and groom hosted a small group of 20 guests, including the Queen and the late Prince Philip. The wedding was originally scheduled for May 29th but was rescheduled to July due to ongoing global health concerns.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting news!
