Princess Beatrice, Princess Andrew’s and Sarah Ferguson’s daughter, has given birth to her first child. On September 20, Beatrice gave birth to her first child, a baby girl. She follows 11 of Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandchildren, all of whom are under the age of 11.
Princess Beatrice is a stepmother to husband Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi’s son
In July 2020, Beatrice married Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi. The couple had planned to marry in May 2020, but the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced them to postpone their wedding several times. Due to the restrictions on large gatherings at the time, Beatrice and Mozzi were married privately at The Royal Chapel of All Saints.
The queen, Beatrice’s father and mother, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and her sister Princess Eugenie were among the close relatives who undoubtedly enjoyed the private ceremony. Other members of the royal family were also present at the happy occasion.
Beatrice’s wedding made her a stepmother to Christopher Woolf, Mozzi’s son, who was born in 2016. Dara Huang, Mozzi’s former fiancee, is Christopher’s mother. As a result, the little boy was an important part of the couple’s wedding ceremony, where he served as a ring bearer.
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi announce their daughter’s arrival
“Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are overjoyed to share the news of their daughter’s safe arrival on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The child was born in London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.”
Beatrice and Mozzi’s daughter was born two days before the palace made this announcement on Sept. 20.
According to The Guardian, the baby weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces.
“The grandparents and great-grandparents of the new baby have all been notified. They are overjoyed at the news. The family would like to express their gratitude to the entire hospital staff for their excellent care,” the remarks continued.
“Her Royal Highness is doing well, as is her child. The couple is looking forward to meeting their daughter’s older brother, Christopher Woolf, according to a palace statement.
The little girl is Queen Elizabeth’s 12th great-grandchild
There are eight grandchildren for the queen. Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, and James Viscount Severn are among those who have attended.
The monarch’s great-grandchildren are listed in chronological order after that. Alternatively, they are 11 in number, with Beatrice’s daughter bringing the total to an even dozen.
Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Mia Tindall, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Lena Tindall are the oldest of the group.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and August Philip Hawke Brooksbank are next in line.
Lucas Philip Tindall, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and Beatrice’s daughter are the youngest.
Beatrice has gained some valuable parenting experience
In an interview for Hello! Magazine’s Back to School digital issue, Princess Beatrice discussed her life as a parent to her 5-year-old stepson Wolfie. Beatrice admitted that assisting Wolfie with his schoolwork was a “learning curve” for her.
During the coronavirus pandemic, however, she quickly adjusted when Wolfie had to complete much of his schoolwork from home.
Beatrice also realized that, despite her best efforts to assist her stepson, “homeschooling is not my forte!” “I’m not going to lie,” she added after her statement. But I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with my bonus son (Wolfie) during the school closures. For all of us, it was a steep learning curve.”
