Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Beatrice expecting baby
The baby, due to be born this autumn, will be the first for Beatrice and her property developer husband.
Princess Beatrice, the granddaughter of Britain's Queen Elizabeth who married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last year, is expecting a baby, Buckingham Palace said.
The baby, the first for Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, and her property developer husband, is due to be born this autumn.
"The queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news," the Palace said in a statement.
The princess, the ninth in line to the throne, and her husband wed at Windsor Castle in July in a scaled-down private ceremony that took place without the usual pomp and fanfare that royal weddings usually attract because of COVID-19 restrictions.
Beatrice’s younger sister Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child, a son named August, in February.
The queen has 10 great-grandchildren, with another – a second child for Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex – due in the summer.
