Beatrice is the eldest daughter of the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York (aka Sarah Ferguson or “Fergie”).
Mapelli Mozzi, nicknamed “Edo,” is a millionaire real estate developer. He also is technically a royal himself as he’s an Italian count, a member of the now-deposed Italian royal family, the House of Savoy.
He has a child with his former partner, American architect Dara Huang, a son named Christopher, nicknamed “Wolfie,” who was born in 2016.
Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi’s child is expected to be born “in autumn of this year,” according to the Palace’s statement. The child will be the 11th in line to the throne.
Beatrice’s younger sister, Princess Eugenie, and her husband Jack Brooksbank recently welcomed their own child: a boy named August Philip Hawke.
