Princess Beatrice gave birth to her daughter, whose name is yet to be announced, last Saturday – just a few months after her beloved sister Eugenie had welcomed her son August Philip Hawke. The proximity in age of the two babies will likely help them create a strong bond, similar to the one experienced by siblings, according to parenting expert Lucy Shrimpton.
The founder of The Sleep Nanny told Express.co.uk: “Being born within seven months of each other will mean the babies will be hitting the same milestones around the same time and will have lots in common throughout their lives.
“With play dates, plenty of family time, and the fact they have so much in common – August and his new cousin will probably begin to feel more like brother and sister after a while, creating an enviable bond which will hopefully serve them well for their whole lives, particularly lives thrust into the public eye as theirs are.”
But it won’t be just the babies’ bond to likely benefit from the fact they were born just a few months apart from one another.
Ms Shrimpton believes Eugenie and Beatrice’s already solid relationship will be further boosted by becoming mothers within the same year.
This, she said, will allow the sisters to go through similar experiences and milestones at almost the same time.
The expert said: “Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have always had a very close and loving bond and it’s wonderful that they have had their children so close in age.
“This will undoubtedly have an impact on the bond between Eugenie’s son, August and Beatrice’s little girl.
“Eugenie will be able to offer Beatrice plenty of advice on surviving – and enjoying – those first few months while they will have a unique understanding of what each other are going through that will bring them even closer.”
Buckingham Palace announced earlier this week Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had welcomed a healthy daughter at a London hospital.
The statement read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday September 18, 2021, at 11.42pm, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.
“The baby weighs six pounds and two ounces.
“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.”
A few hours later, Eugenie published on Instagram two different messages – one dedicated to her sister and brother-in-law and another for her already adored niece.
Eugenie wrote: “To my dearest Beabea and Edo
“Congratulations on your new angel. I can’t wait to meet her and I’m so proud of you.
“We’re going to have so much fun watching our children grow up.”
The Queen’s granddaughter signed off the message with “Love Euge”.
In the same post, Eugenie also addressed directly Beatrice’s baby girl, saying: “To my new niece
“I love you already and think you’re just awesome from the photos.. we’re going to have so much fun together.”
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s baby son was born on February 9 at London’s Portland Hospital.
The couple is believed to be living at Frogmore Cottage, the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Windsor.
On the other hand, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo are believed to be based in an apartment at St James’s Palace.
