Princess Beatrice is pregnant with her first child, Buckingham Palace has announced.
The Royal Family announced the news via their social media accounts in the last hour, sharing a photo of Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on their wedding day last year on Instagram.
The post confirmed that the baby is due in the autumn and the Queen is 'delighted' by the lovely news.
They wrote: '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.'
Beatrice married financier Edoardo last July in a small ceremony at Windsor Castle. Her wedding had to be scaled back due to COVID-19 restrictions, but close family – including her grandmother, the Queen, and late grandfather, Prince Philip, were in attendance.
Her sister Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child, a baby boy named August, in February this year with husband Jack Brooksbank. She has since shared lots of photos of her little boy, including this sweet pic on Brooksbank's birthday.
The happy news comes after a tough few weeks for the royal family, following the death of Prince Philip in April.
