The Queen’s granddaughter, 33, gave birth to her first child on Saturday at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
Beatrice is already a stepmother to her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s young son Wolfie.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said the couple were looking forward to introducing their daughter to Wolfie.
The statement said: “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 baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 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.”
Wolfie is Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s son from his previous relationship with ex-fiancee Dara Huang.
Beatrice referred to the youngster as her “bonus son” earlier this year.
Her baby who is 11th in line to the throne, is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild.
Beatrice took to Twitter to share her and Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s delight.
She said: “So delighted to share the news of the safe arrival of our daughter on Saturday 18th September 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.”
Prince Charles and Camilla’s Clarence House Twitter account posted a message to Beatrice and her husband.
They said: “Congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on the happy news of the birth of their daughter.”
Prince William and Kate’s Kensington Palace Twitter account retweeted a post by the Royal Family announcing Beatrice’s baby.
The Princess and millionaire property tycoon Mr Mapelli Mozzi married in July 2020 in a secret lockdown wedding.
Beatrice is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
The baby is the Duke and Duchess of York’s second grandchild and first granddaughter.
Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie gave birth to her son August earlier this year.
Beatrice and Eugenie will be delighted to have their children so close together in age and to share the experience of being first-time mothers.
