The Princess tied the knot with property developer Edoardo at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge Windsor in July 2020. 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.

Beatrice and Edoardo are expecting their first child this autumn

While the baby will be Beatrice's first child, Edoardo already has a son Christopher Woolf (affectionately known as Wolfie), from his previous relationship with American architect Dara Huang.

Ninth in line to the throne, Beatrice will move to tenth place when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby arrives.

The princess's son or daughter will be 11th in line to the throne when he or she is born, which means that Beatrice's younger sister Princess Eugenie will move down to 12th place.

It will be the second grandchild for the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, after the birth of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's son August in February.
