Princess Beatrice, 33, has given birth to her first child with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 37.
The baby girl was born on 18 September 2021 at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. She weighed 6lbs. and 2oz.
Beatrice and her child are doing well.
Both families have been informed and are delighted with the news.
Buckingham Palace said: “The couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf.”
The new royal baby is The Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and 11th in line to the throne.
The baby is the second grandchild of the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York. Their younger daughter, Princess Eugenie, gave birth to a son, August, in February of this year.
Beatrice was reportedly admitted to a London hospital on Friday. The Sun reported her father was set to leave Balmoral, where he was staying with The Queen, to check on his daughter on Saturday but as of Monday, he remained on the Scottish estate.
Princess Beatrice and Edo married in a private ceremony on 17 July 2020 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor with just a few people in attendance. The pair had planned to wed earlier in the year, but the global health crisis caused the wedding to be postponed.
They announced they were expecting their first child in May. Edo already has a son, Wolfie (b. 2016), with his former fiancée.
