Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their first child together

The Royal Family announced the wonderful pregnancy news this morning. Princess Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot in a low-key ceremony last summer and this baby will be their first child together

Princess Beatrice has announced she is pregnant.

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson revealed that she is expecting her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The wonderful news was announced on the The Royal Family Instagram account.

It read: “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.

“The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.”

Beatrice and Edoardo married in a small, low-key ceremony last summer.

The Royal couple had originally planned to host a larger reception on their wedding day, but due to the global Covid-19 pandemic this just wasn’t possible, so they decided to say I do in front of a small number of family and friends.

One of Beatrice’s friends told The Sun at the time: “They were obviously very keen for the Queen to come so the wedding had to happen before she goes up to Balmoral so this was a great opportunity.

“So many guests were disappointed not to make the big day but understood the reason for it.

“They are just like a normal family and had to make sacrifices like many others have up and down the country and looking forward to having a wonderful celebration when the time is right.”

Beatrice and Edoardo were together for just 11 months when they announced news of their engagement in Italy in September 2019. Edo, a father of one, proposed with a ring reported to cost more than €100,000.

While this baby will be the couple’s first child together, Edoardo has a four-year-old son named Christopher from a previous relationship.
