Beatrice of York is expecting her first child. The future baby will not have a royal title on his mother’s side. However, he will have a title thanks to his father, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Princess Beatrice of York and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, will welcome their first child this fall. It will be the 12th great-grandchild of the Queen, Elizabeth II. But the future baby will not be able to bear the title of prince or princess since it is given only to children and grandchildren of the monarch. On the other hand, the baby of Beatrice of York will have a title thanks to the family of his father.
Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who had made a touching declaration of love to his wife for their one-year marriage, is an Italian count. Therefore the future baby will inherit the title of count or countess, just like his big brother, Christopher also known as “Wolfie”, born from a previous union of Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi with the American architect Dara Huang. According to the Sun, the father of the father-to-be, Count Allessandro Mapelli Mozzi, explained to the Daily Mail: “Edoardo is the only male descendant to take the family to the next generation. He is a count, his wife will automatically be a countess and any of their children will be a count or countess,” he said.
A new title also for Princess Beatrice
By marrying Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Beatrice has also inherited a new title, that of Countess. The lovers, who have known each other for many years since their parents are long-time friends, had said yes on July 17, 2020. The ceremony had to be postponed and rethought because of the coronavirus pandemic. The couple had finally married in the presence of their respective families and close friends.
