The baby will be the Queen's 12th great-grandchild following the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter this summer.

Beatrice and Edoardo married in July 2020 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge Windsor. Due to coronavirus restrictions at the time, the private ceremony was attended by the couple's closest friends and family, including the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh.
