Just days ago, the new mom stepped out to join Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice at a garden party celebrating the 10th anniversary of Russell House last week.
Buckingham Palace announced in May that the couple were expecting their first child together.
“Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year. The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news,” the statement read.
The newlywed’s baby will join two other royal babies. Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugenie gave birth to her first child earlier this year and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child this Summer.
