“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,” the royal family’s statement concluded.

The palace announced in May that the daughter of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Prince Andrew was expecting her first child after she and Mozzi tied the knot at a private ceremony in Windsor in July 2020.

For the ceremony, the princess wore a white satin puffed sleeve gown with a diamond pattern down the front she borrowed from the queen for her big day, E! News reported.

“Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell and the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen,” a tweet from the royal family read at the time. “The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947.”
