Princess Beatrice’s baby: All the royals who have named their children after Queen Elizabeth II.
The daughter of PRINCESS BEATRICE and her spouse Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is named Sienna Elizabeth.
Beatrice shared the news on Twitter today, with a photo of Sienna’s footprints as an attachment. “We are thrilled to share that our baby Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi has been named,” she added. “We are all doing well, and Wolfie is Sienna’s best big brother.” ‘Wolfie’ is Edoardo’s son Christopher, whom he and his ex-fiancée Dara Huang welcomed in 2016.
On September 18, Beatrice’s first child, Sienna, was born, making her Queen Elizabeth II’s 12th great-grandchild.
She weighed six pounds and two ounces when she was born at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
“Our life together has only begun, and I can’t wait to see all the fantastic things that await us,” Edoardo wrote on Instagram today.
“I’m overwhelmed with love and gratitude for my wonderful wife, Sienna, and Wolfie.”
“These are the days I’d like to remember for the rest of my life. This week, a buddy told me the greatest thing: “With every child, you build a new heart.”
“I’d like to express my gratitude to the midwife and the entire Chelsea and Westminster Hospital team.”
The pair has continued a family history of naming girls after monarchs by giving Sienna the middle name ‘Elizabeth.’
When Princess Anne, the Queen’s only daughter, was born in 1950, she was given the middle name Elizabeth by the Queen.
Three of Her Majesty’s four granddaughters have now taken her name.
Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor, Zara Anne Elizabeth Tindall, and Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor are their names.
Beatrice and Edoardo are the latest couple to honor the monarch by naming one of her great-granddaughters after her.
When her daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in 2015, Beatrice’s cousin Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, paid tribute to Her Majesty by naming her after William’s late mother, Princess Diana, who died in 1997.
Prince George, William and Kate’s firstborn son, was named after his royal forebears after he was born in 2013.
Prince George Alexander Louis, his full name, is a tribute to the Queen’s father, King George VI.
The masculine form of the Queen’s middle name, Alexandra, is Alexander, while Louis is one of William’s own names.
