Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, has welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Beatrice was already a stepmother to Edoardo’s son Woolf.

The happy news was announced via a statement from the royal family, which read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London. The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.

“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.

“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 baby is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and is 11th to the throne after Princess Beatrice.
