Princess Beatrice Inherited New Title After Marriage to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice will celebrate her first wedding anniversary with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, on Saturday 17 July. The couple is expecting their first child this autumn, who will be 11th in line to the throne. But the Duke of York's eldest daughter has also inherited titles from her husband's side of the family, becoming an Italian 'Contessa' or 'Nobile Donna' (noblewoman).

Edoardo's father Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, 70, who descends from Italian aristocracy, told Mail Online prior to the wedding last year: "Edoardo is the only male descendent taking the family into the next generation. He is a count – his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna."

Former British Olympian Alessandro was married to Nikki Burrows for five years and they had two children together, Natalia, now 40, and Edoardo, 37. He met Beatrice's mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, in the Swiss ski resort Verbier in 1972 and the families have been friends for years. Beatrice and Edoardo announced their engagement in September 2019, following a weekend break in Italy.
