Britain’s Princess Beatrice, Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, has given birth to a baby girl, her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Buckingham Palace announced on Monday.
The baby, who weighed 2.78 kg, was born at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, on Saturday.
Beatrice, the tenth-in-line to the throne and the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, married property developer, Mapelli Mozzi, in July 2020.
“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf,” the statement said.
The baby is the 12th great-grandchild for 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth.
The birth is good news for Beatrice’ family, coming on the back of a number of negative headlines that have followed a United States sex assault lawsuit against her father, Prince Andrew, the queen’s second son.
