The name of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s baby girl, who was born on September 18th, has been confirmed.
In a personal tweet, Beatrice shared a sweet photo of the baby’s footprints and wrote: “We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.”
Edoardo, her husband, wrote on Instagram: “Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi’s full name is Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. Our journey together has only just begun, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I’m overjoyed and grateful for my wonderful wife, baby Sienna, and Wolfie. These are the days I’d like to remember for the rest of my life. This week, a friend told me the sweetest thing: “With every child, you grow a new heart.” Thank you so much to the Midwife and the entire Chelsea and Westminster Hospital team.”
The tot’s middle name, Elizabeth, has a sweet connection to her great-grandmother, the Queen, as is customary. Meanwhile, the name Sienna is derived from the Italian city of Siena, which is located in Tuscany.
The baby’s name was revealed 13 days after his or her birth on September 18th.
Princess Eugenie, Beatrice’s younger sister, didn’t reveal the name of her baby son August until 11 days after his birth in February.
Similarly, after Princess Beatrice’s birth in August 1988, it took the Duke and Duchess of York two weeks to announce her name to the world.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement announcing the royal birth: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are overjoyed to announce the safe arrival of their daughter at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London on Saturday, September 18th, 2021, at 23.42. The baby is 6 pounds and 2 ounces in weight.
“The grandparents and great-grandparents of the new baby have all been informed and are overjoyed. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the entire hospital staff for their excellent care.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are doing well, and the couple is looking forward to introducing their daughter to Christopher Woolf, her older brother.”
After her mother, Baby Sienna is 11th in line to the throne, relegating Princess Eugenie to 12th place.
The baby girl will be the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and the fourth in 2021.
In February, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son August, while Zara and Mike Tindall welcomed their third child, Lucas, in March.
In June, the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, her and Prince Harry’s second child, at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The baby girl was given the nickname of the Queen’s family.
