Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that the York princesses feel a bit competitive with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I enjoy petty aggressions, so I’m into it. Meghan told people she was pregnant (with Archie) at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, and then Meghan’s current pregnancy was announced just after Eugenie gave birth to August in February, only we didn’t know the baby’s name yet and it was yet another “Meghan steals Eugenie’s thunder” thing. So here we are, on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s third wedding anniversary and… Princess Beatrice announces her first pregnancy.
Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last July, in a small “pandemic wedding” with only their parents, the Queen and Prince Philip and a handful of other friends and family members. They married in Windsor and Beatrice wore a vintage dress belonging to the Queen. It was pretty interesting, but in retrospect, I bet Beatrice was happy that her grandfather could attend her wedding. So… that was ten months ago. And if they’re already announcing her pregnancy, she’s probably three or four months along. So they didn’t really wait that long to start trying!
Bea is 32 years old – 33 in August. Edo is 38 years old, and he’s already father to Wolfie, his son with his ex-fiancee Dara Huang. I’m happy for them. I’m kind of hoping for a girl for them since he’s already got a son, plus I just think Beatrice would love to have a daughter.
Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year.
The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.
