Princess Beatrice is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. Unlike many of her royal relatives, Princess Beatrice lives her life mostly out of the spotlight, and even though she is not a “working royal,” she remains popular with fans and the media.

Now that Princess Beatrice is preparing to tie the knot with her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, speculation has started about when she could start her own family.

Read on to learn why royal watchers could see a pregnancy announcement from Princess Beatrice well before both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Kate Middleton has a very busy schedule

While rumors have been running rampant in recent months about how Kate Middleton is ready to have a fourth baby, they remain rumors at this point. Middleton suffered from extreme morning sickness with all three of her pregnancies, so the palace announced them a bit early, as it was hard to disguise her frequent trips to the hospital.

As the palace has been silent and Middleton has not been spotted being admitted for doctor’s care, it seems safe to assume that she isn’t pregnant yet.

Some reports have claimed that Middleton would love to have another baby, but she’s also got a lot on her plate for the foreseeable future. Middleton is preparing to assume even more responsibility in the years to come, as Prince William gets even closer to the throne — and of course, she also has three young children to raise.

While it is entirely possible that Middleton and Prince William will have a fourth child, it might not be for several years. 

It might be too early for Meghan Markle to have a baby

As for Meghan Markle, her son with Prince Harry, Archie Harrison, is not even six months old yet. It is generally believed that it is unhealthy for a woman to get pregnant before at least a year has passed after giving birth.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been open about wanting to have two children, so royal watchers can definitely expect to see a pregnancy announcement for Markle within the next year or so.

Still, there is another royal who might beat her to it.

Princess Beatrice is reportedly ready to start a family

Princess Beatrice is all set to marry her fiance, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, sometime next year. Since they both have millions, the wedding is surely to be an incredibly extravagant affair, with lots of glamour to spare. Plus, if recent reports are to be believed, Princess Beatrice won’t wait long after they tie the knot to start their family.

Sources in the news story state that even now, Princess Beatrice is anxious to be pregnant and wouldn’t even mind being pregnant when she walks down the aisle. While this could be frowned upon by some members of the royal family, Princess Beatrice has always marched to the beat of her own drum, and likely wouldn’t mind.

A new baby would also take her mind off of the scandal surrounding her father, Prince Andrew. If the reports are to be believed, royal watchers should pay close attention to Princess Beatrice in the coming months — a brand new royal baby could be on the horizon!
