Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelil Mozzi have welcomed their first child together and their baby will have an official title.
He is not from the royal family. Instead, he comes from his father’s family Edoardo, and his father’s official title is Earl.
The property developer’s family was part of the Italian nobility before the country became a republic in 1946, meaning his daughter will inherit it as well.
Although they do not use them in everyday life, they keep their titles which are transmitted to them on the father’s side.
Beatrice and Edoardo would be delighted with the arrival of their daughter.
She was born at 11:42 p.m. on September 18, weighing 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
The baby is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and she is currently 11th on the throne.
His grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed of his safe arrival.
Why doesn’t Beatrice’s baby have a royal title?
Only the children and grandchildren of the monarch of the male line are entitled to the titles of prince and princess.
The precedent dates back to the reign of King George V over 100 years ago.
As the Queen’s great-granddaughter, Beatrice’s baby is not entitled to a royal title from the Queen.
