Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have announced the name of their baby daughter, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.

Eliabeth is of course the name of Princess Beatrice's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The couple said in a joint statement today:

"We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi."

"We are all doing well and Wolfie [Mapelli Mozzi's first child, from a previous relationship] is the best big brother to Sienna."

The couple also shared the news Twitter, via Princess Beatrice's official account, and on the royal family's official Instagram account. An image depicting baby Sienna's footprints were also shared with the public via the social media platforms.

According to Baby Centre, the name Sienna is a girl's name of Latin origin. It comes from the Italian city of Siena, which gave its name to a reddish shade of brown.

On Sunday the parents announced that their daughter will be given the Italian title Nobile Donna, which translates as Noble Woman.

Sienna will not be given a royal title like her cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, because only the Queen's children and grandchildren through the male line are awarded Prince and Princess titles.

Instead, the baby takes her title from her dad's side of the family. Her father, whose official title is Count, is a descendant of the Italian nobility who ruled the country before it became a republic in 1946.

The baby, Beatrice’s first with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, was born at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on 18 September.

Princess Eugenie took to her Instagram account to express her delight, writing: “To my dearest Beabea and Edo⁣ Congratulations on your new angel. I can't wait to meet her and I'm so proud of you. We're going to have so much fun watching our children grow up. Love Euge .”

Princess Beatrice announced in May that she was pregnant, with the Queen saying she was “delighted” by the news.

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace to announce the baby’s safe arrival, it read: "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."

The baby, the first for Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, and her property developer husband, comes after the pair tied the knot in July 2020 amid COVID-19 restrictions.

Edoardo is already a dad to four-year-old Wolfie from his relationship with former fiancee, Dara Huang.

He named his and Dara’s son after his beloved step-father, Christopher Shale, who collapsed and died at Glastonbury Festival.
