Princess Beatrice, Mrs Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a member of the British royal family. She is the elder daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York.
She is the niece of Charles III and the granddaughter of Elizabeth II. Born fifth in line of succession to the British throne, she is now ninth. She has a younger sister, Princess Eugenie.
Born in Portland Hospital, London, Beatrice attended St George’s School, Ascot, before studying at Goldsmiths College, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in history. She was briefly employed at the Foreign Office and Sony Pictures before joining software company Afiniti as Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. Beatrice also works privately with a number of charitable organisations, including the Teenage Cancer Trust and Outward Bound.
She married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, a property developer and Italian noble, in 2020. Their daughter Sienna Elizabeth was born on 18 September 2021.
Upon the death of Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III, Princess Beatrice became a Counsellor of State, a senior position within the royal family limited to the first four in the line of succession over the age of 21 and the sovereign’s consort.
During the summer of 2008, Beatrice obtained work experience as a sales assistant at Selfridges. She also worked at the Foreign Office’s press office for a period of time without receiving a salary. It was also reported in 2008 that Beatrice was interested in pursuing a career at the Financial Times website. Beatrice was the first member of the family to appear in a non-documentary film when she had a small, non-speaking role as an extra in The Young Victoria (2009), based on the accession and early reign of her ancestor Queen Victoria. For a while, she was a paid intern at Sony Pictures, but she resigned after the hacking incident that affected the company in late 2014.
In April 2015, it was reported that Beatrice had decided to move to New York City. As of April 2017, Beatrice had a full-time job and split her time between London and New York City. She is known as Beatrice York in her professional life and is Vice President of Partnerships and Strategy at Afiniti. She is also in charge of an Afiniti programme to engage senior business chiefs around the world to support women in leadership. She works with the programme through charity endeavours and speaking engagements.
In January 2022, it was reported that Beatrice had lost her taxpayer-funded police security in 2011, supposedly after her uncle Charles III (then Prince of Wales) intervened.
Marriage and Family
In March 2019, Beatrice attended a fundraising event at the National Portrait Gallery, London, accompanied by property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the son of Alex Mapelli-Mozzi, a former British Olympian and descendant of the Italian nobility; the BBC describes Edoardo as “also a count”, like his father; however, that title is not officially recognised in Italy or the UK.
The couple are believed to have begun dating in September 2018. Together, they attended the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor, Beatrice’s second cousin once removed.
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi became engaged in Italy in September 2019, with their engagement formally announced by the Duke of York’s Office on 26 September.
The wedding was scheduled to take place on 29 May 2020 at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, followed by a private reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, but first the reception and then the wedding itself were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The wedding was eventually held in private on 17 July 2020, at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor, and was not publicly announced in advance Beatrice’s father walked her down the aisle. Her wedding dress was a remodelled Norman Hartnell dress that was loaned by the Queen, and she wore the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara that was also worn by the Queen at her own wedding.
Princess Beatrice has a stepson, Christopher Woolf (born 2016), her husband’s child from a relationship with architect Dara Huang. She gave birth to a daughter, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, on 18 September 2021 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in Chelsea, London. With the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022, the child became 10th in line to the throne.
Sienna was christened at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, on 29 April 2022.
