Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have welcomed their first child together.
Princess Beatrice, 33, has given birth to a baby girl.
The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, welcomed their first child together at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London on Saturday, September 18.
The baby girl was born at 11:42pm and weighed 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
The Royal Family announced the happy news today in a statement which reads: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

The arrival of their first child together comes just over a year after they wed at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
On July 17, 2020, the couple tied the knot in a small and private ceremony, less than a year after they got engaged in Italy.
The Queen was in attendance at the wedding, where Beatrice wore a remastered gown of Her Majesty's for the big day.
While Edoardo and Beatrice have announced the birth of their baby girl, they are yet to reveal the name they have chosen.
