Great joy in the royal family: Princess Beatrice was born
Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Beatrice and her husband Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi became parents on Saturday, Buckingham Palace said.
The Queen's 33-year-old granddaughter gave birth to a 2,8-pound baby girl at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, according to the Kensington Wing.
The baby, whose name has not yet been revealed, is the second grandchild of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and the 12th great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth.
Beatrice's newborn daughter is the 11th in a row for the throne, and although she was born a child of a princess, she will not carry the royal title, which is automatically given only to the grandchildren of the male ruler.
The queen could confer a royal title, but her parents are unlikely to claim it. Princess Beatrice announced on her official Twitter account that she was delighted to be able to share the news of their daughter's safe arrival in the world, thanking the hospital team for the excellent care.
"Her Majesty Princess Beatrice and Mr Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi are pleased to announce that their daughter was born safely on Saturday 18 September 2021 at 23:42 pm at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London," the Kingdom said in a statement.
