Princess Beatrice is expecting her first baby with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and their child will likely have a title, according to a report.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their first baby together. According to a report, their child will likely have a title, unlike Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie’s children.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo’s baby will have a title
During Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex aired her disappointment that Archie wasn’t given a royal title. According to her, she wanted it for her child because she wanted Archie to receive royal protection and security.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s baby also did not receive a royal title because they were already far from the line of succession. However, Princess Beatrice’s child will likely receive one but from her husband’s side.
Mapelli Mozzi is an Italian Count, so his children will also be a count or “nobile donna,” which means “noble woman,” Cosmopolitan U.K. reported. Aside from being a princess in Great Britain, the Princess of York carries the title of Countess after she married Mapelli Mozzi.
Markle was wrong about the title
Royal expert Craig Prescott told Us Weekly that the Duchess of Sussex was wrong about tying a royal title to one’s security. He noted that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie also have royal titles, but they did not receive security because they are not working royals like their cousin Prince William.
He also explained that Archie was not entitled to be called a prince when he was born because he is too far from the line of succession. In the rules established in 1917, only the children and grandchildren of the monarch are entitled to the HRH titles. When Prince Charles takes over the throne, the new king might grant Archie a royal title.
Beatrice’s pregnancy announcement raised eyebrows
Princess Beatrice announced her pregnancy on Wednesday. Many were happy when they learned the news. However, several also questioned the timing because it happened on the same day Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
A highly place source told Page Six that the timing was a “total dig” at Prince Harry and Markle. Princess Beatrice allegedly did not forget how Prince Harry and Markle made their pregnancy announcement at her sister Princess Eugenie’s wedding.
Several insiders claimed that the Sussexes did not announce their pregnancy at the event. But many were also convinced that it did happen.
Royal biographer Robert Jobson, author of Prince Philip’s Century, said, “in life, timing is everything,” and he seemingly agreed that Princess Beatrice’s pregnancy announcement is not a coincidence.
“What goes around comes around,” he said.
