Princess Beatrice is pregnant with her first child with 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, 2020, in a private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints’ Day on the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor Castle.

The couple were originally scheduled to tie the knot in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace on May 29 last year, but were forced to cancel due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Their July wedding took place under UK government COVID-19 regulations and brought together 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 (aka Sarah Ferguson or “Fergie”).

Beatrice, currently the 10th to the British throne, holds a full-time position as Vice President of Partnerships and Strategy at Afiniti, an artificial intelligence software company.

Mapelli Mozzi, nicknamed “Edo”, is a millionaire real estate developer. It is also technically a royal himself because he is an Italian count, a member of the now deposed Italian royal family, the House of Savoy.

He has a child with his former partner, American architect Dara Huang, a son named Christopher, nicknamed “Wolfie”, who was born in 2016.

Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi’s child should be born “in the fall of this year,” according to the Palace press release. The child will be the 11th on the throne.

Beatrice’s younger sister, Princess Eugenie, and her husband Jack Brooksbank recently welcomed their own child: a boy named August Philip Hawke.
