“The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces. The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news.”
“The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.”
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf,” they added, referring to Edoardo’s 4-year-old son Wolfie – who he shares with ex-fiancée Dara Huang.
Beatrice and Edoardo got engaged in September 2019, and were set to wed at St James’s Palace in London in May 2020, but their plans were scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple instead wed in an intimate ceremony in Windsor on July 17 last year, with just 20 guests in attendance, including Queen Elizabeth and Beatrice’s father Prince Andrew.
Edoardo’s son Wolfie acted as his Paige Boy and Best Man, and Beatrice’s sister Eugenie was the Maid of Honour.
