Buckingham Palace confirmed this morning that the Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice, and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting a baby together.
‘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,’ a statement read.
‘The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.’
A photo of the couple, who tied the knot privately in July last year, was shared on the Royal Family Instagram page, alongside the exciting announcement.
The Queen has 10 great-grandchildren, but will welcome two more this year now that Beatrice is expecting.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are preparing to welcome their first daughter into the Sussex family, having confirmed Meghan’s pregnancy on Valentine’s Day of this year.
Their little girl is due to be born this summer and it’s thought that Beatrice’s baby will follow in the autumn.
The monarch has already been blessed with two new royal babies in 2021, with granddaughters Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall both giving birth to boys.
Zara Tindall and her husband Mike welcomed baby Lucas Philip Tindall in March, while Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank had August Philip Hawk Brooksbank in February.
