Princess Beatrice's royal baby girl: What we know so far about Baby Mapelli Mozzi

The royal baby boom of 2021 continues, with Buckingham Palace announcing Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have welcomed their first child.

Here are the details we know so far about the fourth new addition to the royal family this year:

The birth

Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed a baby girl at 11.42pm on September 18, 2021 (8.42am on September 19 AEST), weighing in at 2.78kg, or 6 pounds and 2 ounces.

The 33-year-old royal gave birth at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf,” the statement from Buckingham Palace said, adding a sweet nod to Edo’s son from a previous relationship.

The baby’s grandparents, including Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, as well as great-grandparents, including Queen Elizabeth, have all been informed and are “delighted” by the news.

The new mum also tweeted her own announcement and thanked the midwife team.

The name

The birth announcement from Buckingham Palace didn’t include a name for the little lady.

Younger sister Princess Eugenie didn’t announce her son’s name for 11 days, so it could be a short wait before we hear Baby Mapelli Mozzi’s name.

The pregnancy announcement

Princess Beatrice and Edo, whom she married on July 17, 2020, announced their pregnancy via a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The news was confirmed in a simple two-line statement from Buckingham Palace around 10am UK time (7pm AEST) on May 19.

The timing, on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding anniversary, raised some eyebrows.

No specific due date was announced at the time, just that the royal was due in the UK autumn – meaning some time between September and the end of November.

The newborn has a cousin close in age to Beatrice’s sister’s son, with Princess Eugenie having welcomed her first child August Brooksbank in February.

Place in line of succession

Princess Beatrice is behind her father, Prince Andrew, in the line of succession but ahead of her sister Eugenie and nephew August Brooksbank.

With the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet in June, who slots into the eighth spot, Beatrice was bumped down to 10th place.

This will make her daughter 11th in line to the throne, pushing down Eugenie and August by one spot each.

Baby Mapelli Mozzi is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and is the fourth royal baby born this year, following Princess Eugenie, Zara Tindall and the Duchess of Sussex’s births earlier in 2021.

Royal titles

British royal titles are generally passed down through the male line, meaning Beatrice – who carries the title of HRH (Her Royal Highness) – can’t pass her title to her children. Similarly, Eugenie’s son August didn’t receive a royal title.

Also, on the occasion of their marriage Edo wasn’t given a title by the Queen, so it’s unlikely she will bestow one upon the couple’s child.

However, Edo has his own noble title of Count through his Italian family, therefore there is a chance the child could get a title from their dad’s side.

That said, Edo’s five-year-old son from a previous relationship, Christopher Woolf Mapelli Mozzi, nicknamed ‘Wolfie’, doesn’t appear to have a title at the start of his name.

The grandparents

Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson have welcomed another grandchild for the second time this year.

The Duke and Duchess of York became ‘granny and grandpa’ when Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed August.

Edo’s parents Nikki Williams-Ellis and Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, who are long-time friends of the York family, are already grandparents to little Wolfie.

Where they’ll live

Beatrice and Edo currently live at St James’ Palace in London, however, recent reports suggest they are considering a move to the countryside.

UK media outlets claim the couple had been house-hunting in the Cotswolds prior to Beatrice’s pregnancy being publicly announced.

Undoubtedly, the family of three will spend plenty of time at the York family home in Windsor, Royal Lodge. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson still live together in the home, where Beatrice and Eugenie grew up, despite being divorced.
