The royal baby is the fourth great-grandchild the Queen has welcomed in 2021. Beatrice's younger sister Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank had their son, August, in February, while Zara and Mike Tindall's third child, Lucas, arrived in March.

The new arrival is the first child for Beatrice and the second for her husband Edoardo. The property developer is already the proud dad to five-year-old Christopher Woolf (affectionately known as Wolfie), from his previous relationship with American architect Dara Huang.

The tot is 11th in line to the throne, meaning that Eugenie will move down to 12th place. Eugenie and Jack's son, August, will also move further down in the line of succession to 13th place.
