Princess Beatrice gave birth to her first child at the weekend, who already has the title of a Countess.
The 33-year-old welcomed her little girl in London, on Saturday, with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, by her side.
Mozzi is an Italian count, and this is where the baby’s title comes from.
Announcing the birth on Instagram, a statement read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021.
“The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”
The newborn, who has not yet been named, is 11th in line to the throne.
However, her title has nothing to do with the Royal Family as she has inherited from her father’s side.
All of Mozzi’s future children will also automatically inherit a Count or Countess and his wife, Princess Beatrice, can use it too.
Titles for young Royals is a contentious issue that was raised when Meghan Markle told Oprah Winfrey that the Royal Family changed conventions so that her son, Archie, wouldn’t have a title, implying it was to do with the colour of his skin.
She said: “In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time… we have in tandem the conversation of ‘he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title,’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
