London, September 21 (BNA) Princess Beatrice and her husband, Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi, have given birth to a baby girl, Buckingham Palace said Monday.
The baby, who was born on Saturday at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces (2.78 kilograms). Her name was not immediately released, the Associated Press reports.
The new baby’s grandparents and grandparents have been informed. She is the twelfth granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II.
Beatrice, who is 10th in the line of succession to the British throne, is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York.
Beatrice married millionaire businessman Mapelli Mozzi in July 2020 in a private wedding ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Royal Lodge, Windsor. The ceremony strictly adhered to COVID-19 rules that limited gatherings and was attended by the Queen and the late Prince Philip.
Beatrice, 33, had originally planned to marry Mapelli Mozzi on May 29 at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace. The concert has been postponed due to the pandemic.
Beatrice wrote on her Twitter account that she was “delighted” to “share the SAFE news”.
“Thank you to the midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care,” she said.
