Who Is Princess Beatrice?
- The daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York is the ninth successor to the British throne. She tied knots with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, a property developer a year ago.
- The 32-year-old royal successor holds a bachelor's degree in history in the subject of history and had a career in the field of software companies. Along with her career, she runs multiple numbers of charitable organisations which include the Teenage Cancer Trust and Outward Bound.
- The fifth grandchild of Queen Elizbeth II was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven and the news of the diagnosis was disclosed by the family in 2005. This led to a delay in her appearance for the General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations by a year.
- Beatrice, who was an intern at Sony Pictures, appeared in a non-documentary film, playing the role of an extra in the Young Victoria. The film was based on the accession and early reign of her predecessor Queen Victoria.
Princess Beatrice's Firstborn: 12th Grandchild In the Family
The firstborn child will be the 11th in line to the throne. However, the child will be held from attaining a royal title in spite of being born to a royal mother. Nevertheless, it has been reported that the Queen possesses the power to bestow a royal title upon her great-grandchild if she wishes to.
Beatrice, who is awaiting the birth of her firstborn, is already the stepmother of her husband's son from his previous relationship, Christopher Woolf.
