She’s due to welcome her first child in the coming weeks – but Princess Beatrice isn’t slowing down anytime yet.
The 33-year-old visited the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Russell House, in Huddersfield last week to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
Photos from the royal mum-to-be’s recent outing were shared via the @ForgetMNotChild’s official Twitter page on Wednesday September 16.
In the snaps, Princess Beatrice cuts an elegant figure in a camel-coloured trench coat, a black leather belt tied over her baby bump, which accentuated her beautiful bundle, a below-the-knee black dress and black star-print Gucci loafers.
She finished off her look by leaving her long hair out and teaming it with an emerald-green oversized headband.
At the event, Bea’s maternal instincts were on full display when she met with an adorable baby boy who flashed her a beaming smile.
The princess also happily took hold of a shovel to help bury a time capsule to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Russell House.

Prince Nikolai of Denmark
The oldest grandson of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, 22-year-old Nikolai is son to Prince Joachim and his ex-wife Alexandra, but he’s more interested in modelling than royal duties. And who can blame him with looks like these?
Nikolai walked his first runway show in 2018 for none other than Burberry and has walked for other distinguished fashion houses and graced the covers of world-class magazines since.
Prince Felix of Denmark
Felix, 19, is Nikolai’s younger brother and shares his regal good looks. Unlike his big brother, Felix hasn’t gone into modelling (yet!) and instead has focused on his royal duties, passing his entry exam to the Royal Danish Military Academy earlier this year.
Pauline Ducruet of Monaco
This 27-year-old fashion designer royal can count none other than Grace Kelly as her grandmother. The eldest daughter of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, Pauline runs her own fashion label, Altered Designs, and is a regular at fashion weeks and luxe events around the world.
She’s also a competitive diver and was part of the Monaco delegation at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore.
No, she’s not an Instagram star or film starlet – but you’d be forgiven for thinking the 23-year-old royal was. She’s the youngest child of Princess Stephanie and former bodyguard Jean-Raymond Gottlieb, after Stephanie split from her ex husband.
There was some scandal around Camille’s birth, as her father’s identity was initially kept secret and even left off her birth certificate. The young royal has no succession rights in Monaco because her parents were never married.
Princesses Catharina-Amalia, Alexia and Ariane of the Netherlands
Amalia, 17 (centre), Alexia, 16 (right), and Ariane, 14 (left), are the daughters of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. The three girls have been raised as traditional royals, with Amalia working closely with her father as his heir. Alexia just recently left the Netherlands to continue her schooling in the UK for two years.
Princess Talita Natasha von Fürstenberg
This German princess grew up in the US and rarely uses her royal title, instead carving out a career for herself as a model, socialite and fashion designer. Princess Talita, 22, is daughter to Prince Alexander von Furstenberg and granddaughter to fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, and is set to one day take over the Diane von Furstenberg business.
Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark
This 25-year-old princess may be her father’s heir, but she’s more interested in modelling and fashion than ruling. Which is fortunate, given she sits behind all of her four brothers in the royal line of succession.
The eldest child and only daughter of Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, the socialite has a huge INstagram following and has modelled for the likes of Dolce & Gabanna, Bvlgari and many more.
Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark
Known as ‘Tino’ by family and friends, the 22-year-old is the second child and first son of Princess Marie-Chantal and Prince Pavlos. But his godfather is even more well-known than his parents; it’s none other than Prince William!
The young prince studied at Georgetown university in the US and has even modelled for Dior.
Prince Achileas-Andreas of Greece and Denmark
This 21-year-old prince looks more like a social media influencer than a royal, but don’t be fooled. He’s the third of Princess Marie-Chantal and Prince Pavlos’ five children and lives a more “normal” life than his elder siblings.
He grew up mostly in the US, studied in New York and has even tried his hand at acting in 2017 on The Bold and the Beautiful.
Lady Amelia Windsor
Amelia, 26, is a distant cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry through her grandfather, Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, who is the Queen’s cousin. Once dubbed the ‘most beautiful royal’ by British tabloid Tatler, she certainly has regal good looks!
She has put her beauty to good use modelling, walking for Dolce & Gabbana in 2019, has featured on the cover of Vogue Japan, and works in fashion with brands like Bvlgari.

He looks like a male model, but 22-year-old Arthur is also a world-record athlete and a personal trainer. In late 2020 he revealed that he and his rowing team had completed the GB Row Challenge, a gruelling row around Britain, becoming the youngest team to do so.
He’s the grandson of Queen’s Elizabeth sister, the late Princess Margaret, and a distant relative of William and Harry.
Sam is Arthur’s artsy older brother, aged 25, and runs his own ceramics studio in West Sussex after studying History of Art at the University of Edinburgh. He used to share snaps like this one from 2017 on Instagram, but hasn’t posted on the platform in quite some time, much to the disappointment of his young female fans.
Marius Borg Høiby
Photographed here with a friend, Marius (left), 24, is the son of Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway and convicted felon Morten Borg, whom she was with prior to her marriage to Crown Prince Haakon of Norway. Though he was welcomed into the royal family after his mother wed the prince, Marius holds no royal titles and withdrew from royal life to move to the US in 2017.
Princesses Leonor and Sofia of Spain
Leonor, 15, and Sofia, 14, are the duaghters of King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain, with Leonor set to on day take over her father’s role as monarch. She recently jetted to the UK to continue her studies there for two years while Sofia remains in Spain.
“In the last 10 years, the charity has supported over 800 families – I am simply lost for words as to the difference that this support has made to so many lives”, Beatrice explained in an interview with the organisation.
“When people ask me why I became the Patron of this amazing charity, I only have to explain how much of an important part of the community Russell House and the charity has become. And how much of a momentous achievement it is for us to be stood here today celebrating 10 years of supporting that community.”
She also penned a rare tweet to mark the milestone, “What a remarkable 10 years it’s been and a wonderful centre at Russell House for the community.”
Princess Beatrice’s pregnancy news was shared via an official statement from the Palace in May, which read: “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 Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.”
Beatrice is also a step-mum to Edo’s first son, Wolfie, four, whom he shares with his ex-fiancee Dara Huang.
The royal has previously spoken about becoming a parent-figure to Wolfie, telling the Evening Standard: “This year, I had the great honour to become a stepmother, and have had the most remarkable time going back over some of my most favourite stories at bedtime.”
Beatrice and Edoardo’s child will be the 12th great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth II, and will sit 11th in line to the British throne, behind the likes of August Brooksbank, Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, and the three Cambridge children.
Like their cousin August, Beatrice’s child will not carry an official royal title because they are passed down through the male line of the royal family.
That means Beatrice, who bears the title of HRH (Her Royal Highness), will be unable to pass her title onto this baby or any other children she has.Internet Explorer Channel Network
