Princess Beatrice, 33, has now been a mother for a week after welcoming a daughter into her life last Saturday. The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson has yet to announce the name for her newborn daughter. There are many strong contenders among bookmakers, but the little girl’s name could be held back for a full week as the royal attempts to follow a royal tradition set by her parents with her own birth.

Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed a bouncing baby girl a week ago today on September 25.

The baby girl was born at 11.42pm at the Chelsea and Westminister Hospital in London.

The 33-year-old royal was inundated with well-wishes and in a statement, the couple were “delighted” with the safe arrival of their daughter.

The statement continued: “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.”

The statement also made a touching reference to the baby girl’s half-brother, reading: “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple is looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf.”

Beatrice’s daughter is the fourth baby to be born in 2021 with two of her cousins and her sister welcoming new children this year.

August Philip Brooksbank was the first baby to be born into the Royal Family in 2021, with his mother Princess Eugenie giving birth in February.

Zara Tindall was the second royal to give birth in March, welcoming a son named Lucas.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, the daughter and second child of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was born on June 4.

Royal baby names are not often revealed immediately after their birth.

However, with the Cambridge children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the Sussex baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the public had to wait two days before finding their respective names.

Prince Louis’ name was not announced until four days after his birth.

Princess Eugenie took a full 11 days to announce baby August’s name.

Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, did not announce their eldest daughter’s name for two weeks after her birth.

Beatrice’s name may have taken longer to be revealed because royals typically tell the Queen about their name choice to ensure she is happy with the decision.

Traditionally, it is an “informal chat” wherein she gives her blessing or airs her issues.

Typically she does not have any issues with name suggestions, but Princess Beatrice’s original name was due to be Princess Annabel, but after the Queen said she was concerned it was apparently “too yuppie” the Yorks reconsidered their decision.

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo may decide to follow this tradition and take two weeks to announce their daughter’s name.

The royals are known for picking sentimental names for their children – with the royal baby’s cousin August named after his late grandfather Prince Philip.

Bookmakers are reportedly at odds on the name for Princess Beatrice’s baby.

Some are favouring more traditional names, with others predicting Edoardo’s Italian ancestry could play a role in the baby girl’s name.

Luna is now a firm favourite with bookie Coral putting odds at 5/4 for the baby to be given this name.

Other frontrunners include Arabella at 3/1, Alessia at 4/1 and Florence at 5/1 odds.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “We’ve moved Luna right to the top of our betting to be the name of Beatrice and Edoardo’s baby girl, the clear favourite in the market with the name expected to be revealed in the very near future.”

Other names and odds include:

  • Florence: 5/1 odds
  • Matilda: 11/2 odds
  • Clementine: 8/1 odds
  • Sienna: 8/1 odds
  • Giovanna: 10/1 odds
  • Elizabeth: 12/1 odds
  • Angelina: 16/1 odds
  • Mary 20/1 odds
  • Louise: 25/1 odds.
