Princess Beatrice Gives Birth to a Baby Girl, Queen Elizabeth’s 12th Great-Grandchild
Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, has given birth to her first daughter. Beatrice delivered her first daughter, a baby girl, on Sept. 20. She comes line after 11 great-grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth, all under the age of 11-years-old.
Princess Beatrice is a stepmother to husband Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi’s son
Beatrice wed Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi in July 2020. While the couple originally planned to wed in May 2020, they had to postpone their wedding several times as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As a result of the restrictions placed on large gatherings at the time, Beatrice and Mozzi enjoyed a private ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints.
Close relatives who undoubtedly enjoyed the private ceremony included the queen, Beatrice’s father and mother, Prince Andrew, and Sarah Ferguson, and her sister Princess Eugenie. In addition, other close royal family members also attended the happy event.
Beatrice’s wedding immediately made her a stepmother to Mozzi’s son Christopher Woolf, born in 2016. Christopher’s mother is Mozzi’s former fiance, Dara Huang. Consequently, the little boy became an important part of the couple’s ceremony where he performed his duty as a ring bearer.
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi announce their daughter’s arrival
“Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18 September 2021. The baby was born at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.”
Although the palace made this statement on Sept. 20, Beatrice and Mozzi’s daughter was born two days earlier.
The baby’s weight came in at 6 lbs., 2 oz. as revealed by The Guardian.
“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed. They are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care,” the remarks continued.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well. The couple is looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf,” said a statement from the palace.
The little girl is Queen Elizabeth’s 12th great-grandchild
The queen has eight grandchildren. These include Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, and James Viscount Severn.
Following, the monarch’s great-grandchildren are listed in order of age. Alternatively, they number 11, and Beatrice’s daughter makes then an even dozen.
The oldest are Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Mia Tindall, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Lena Tindall.
Following are Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.
The youngest are Lucas Philip Tindall, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and Beatrice’s daughter.
Beatrice has gained some valuable parenting experience
Princess Beatrice shared details about her life as a parent to her 5-year-old stepson Wolfie in an interview for the Back to School digital issue of Hello! Magazine. Beatrice revealed that her experience of helping Wolfie with his schoolwork was “a learning curve.”
However, she adapted quickly when Wolfie had to complete much of his schoolwork from home during the coronavirus pandemic.
Also, Beatrice realized that although she tried to help her stepson, “homeschooling is not my forte!” She followed her statement by saying, “Not going to lie. “But I’ve felt very lucky to have had the chance to work with my bonus son (Wolfie) over the course of the school closures. It was a huge learning curve for all of us.”
