UK's Princess Beatrice gives birth to daughter

Buckingham Palace says Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have announced the birth of their daughter

LONDON -- Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have had a baby daughter, Buckingham Palace said Monday.

The baby, who was born on Saturday at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, weighed 6 pounds and 2 ounces (2.78 kilos). Her name was not immediately revealed.

Beatrice, who is 10th in the line of succession to the British throne, is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York.

Beatrice, 33, had originally planned to marry Mapelli Mozzi on May 29 in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace. The ceremony was postponed because of the pandemic.

“Thank you to the midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care,” she said.
