The Queen’s granddaughter gave birth to her first child, weighing 6lb 2oz just before midnight on Saturday 18 September at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
Princess Beatrice gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, Buckingham Palace said.
The Queen’s granddaughter welcomed her first child, weighing 6lb 2oz on 18 September at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
Beatrice, 33, is also stepmother to Mr. Mapelli Mozzi’s young son Wolfie, from his previous relationship with ex-fiancee Dara Huang.
In a tweet from her official Twitter account, Beatrice said she was “delighted” to “share the news of the safe arrival” of the couple’s daughter, adding: “Thank you to the midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care.”
In a statement, it said: “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, who is 11th in line to the throne, is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild, and the second to be born since the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, following the arrival of the Sussexes’ daughter Lili in June.
The princess and millionaire property tycoon Mr. Mapelli Mozzi married in July 2020 in a secret lockdown wedding attended by the Queen and Philip after their planned ceremony was postponed because of the pandemic.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s official Twitter account welcomed the birth of Beatrice and Edoardo’s baby daughter.
The tweet said: “Congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on the happy news of the birth of their daughter.”
Beatrice is the eldest daughter of the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, with the baby being the Yorks’ second grandchild.
