Some very happy news for you this morning: Princess Beatrice is pregnant with her first child. The announcement was made by Buckingham Palace, who have said she is expecting the little one with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in the autumn. Congratulations to the pair!

In a statement, the palace said, 'Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year. The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.' The couple's child will become the Queen's 11th great-grandchild.

Edoardo and Beatrice tied the knot in July 2020. It was a private wedding in Windsor, with the couple announcing the news in some gorgeous wedding photos, with Beatrice wearing a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell, on loan from her grandmother the Queen.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, it was a very low-key event. Scaling down the guests from 150 to around 20, Beatrice and Edoardo decided to hold a small private ceremony at Windsor Castle, which Buckingham Palace said was attended by the Queen, Prince Philip and the couples' parents and siblings. Edoardo's son, Wolfie, acted as best man and pageboy. (The Palace also stated that the service took place within government guidelines, with no hymns sung.)

But, sweetly, no photos were revealed on the big day itself - as the couple didn't want to take the attention way from Captain Tom Moore, who was knighted on the same day by the Queen.

Edoardo is a multi-millionaire, having founded the property consultancy Banda (it means ‘big shed’ in Swahili, apparently) in 2007. The company specialises in finding and developing homes for the super-rich.
