Princess Beatrice of York is pregnant with her first child with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Buckingham Palace announced on Wednesday.
“The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news,” the Palace said in a statement.
Beatrice, 32, married Mapelli Mozzi, 37, on July 17 in a private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints on the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Castle.
Her wedding in July took place under the British government’s COVID-19 regulations and was attended by a small group of family and friends, including the bride’s grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
Beatrice is the eldest daughter of the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York (also known as Sarah Ferguson or “Fergie”).
She has a son with her ex-partner, American architect Dara Huang, a son named Christopher, nicknamed “Wolfie,” who was born in 2016.
According to the palace statement, Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi’s son is expected to be born “in the autumn of this year.” The child will be the eleventh in a row on the throne.
Beatrice’s younger sister, Princess Eugenie, and her husband Jack Brooksbank recently welcomed their own son: a boy named August Philip Hawke.
