Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed their first child into the world last weekend. The baby girl weighed 6lb 2oz and was born at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. After Buckingham Palace confirmed the birth earlier this week, Beatrice herself tweeted: “So delighted to share the news of the safe arrival of our daughter on Saturday September 18, 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

“Thank you to the midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care.”

She joins her sister, Princess Eugenie, in motherhood, who gave birth to her first child, August, earlier this year.

The sisters are known to be extremely close, having grown up under the royal spotlight.

This was made all the more intense when their parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, went through a very public divorce in 1996, with their exploits laid bare.

It forced Beatrice and Eugenie to strike a close bond, the two having since talked at length about their personal hardships growing up.

Beatrice has been particularly candid, opening up about her dyslexia, and the complications that came with it while in school.

Her comments could be seen as a road-map to guide her child as she grows up as part of the Royal Family.

Last year, she spoke to Made by Dyslexia, a charity designed to raise awareness about the disorder, and revealed the message she would give her younger self to help through school hardship.

She said: “I think if I were able to, I would say do not be defined by those moments that happened to you in that exam or classroom because they are lifelong learnings.

“They are lessons that you carry with you and they build you up to be who you are.”

She also opened up about how dyslexia affected her learning early on.

Beatrice said: “The reason why I am so passionate about dyslexia is because being a dyslexic person myself, I feel like I really understand that we have a responsibility to change the narrative around what we are delivering to young people in the classroom.

“I was very lucky, I got to go to a school that was very nurturing, and very supportive.

“But, I would describe the actual day-to-day learning side of things very challenging.

“I remember we had different coloured books to describe where your reading levels had got to and I was always on the white books.

“My best friends were always on the yellow books or the green books — they were so far ahead.

“I think at that stage, those moments of doubt just pop into your head.

“‘I’m not good enough, I’m not smart enough, why am I not like the others?’

“I think when you’re in the classroom those moments are very defining.”

Beatrice and Eugenie’s children will likely grow up further away from the Firm’s innermost circle given that the two have sought to carve out their own personal lives away from the monarchy, both earning an income from regular jobs.

The Telegraph’s Camilla Tominey last year suggested that as they build families of their own, Prince Andrew’s dream of them becoming full-time working royals was “now in tatters”.

A source told Ms Tominey that all the sisters have ever wanted was to “live their own lives”.

They said: “Although Andrew was always pushing for them to have more royal responsibilities, all Bea and Eug have ever really wanted is to live their own lives, while supporting the Queen when the need arises.

“In many ways, what has happened with their father has finally settled the debate over their future. It actually makes life a little easier for them.

“Of course, they remain supportive of both their parents, but they have their own lives and careers and are keen to avoid being dragged into any controversy.”

While Beatrice’s baby will not be given a title by the Royal Family, she will inherit one from Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s side.

He comes from an Italian noble family whose ancestral seat is the Villa Mapelli Mozzi in the Bergamo province of Italy.

However, his and his family’s titles are not recognised in Italy or the UK.

She will be known as Nobile Donna: ‘Noble Woman’.
