Princess Beatrice’s daughter Sienna is moved to 11th in line to the throne

The Royal Family website have updated Princess Beatrice‘s daughter Sienna’s profile, naming her 11th in line to the throne.

Last month, Beatrice, 32, and husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, announced the birth of their firstborn baby daughter Sienna Elizabeth, revealing the name is a tribute to the Queen

Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, gave birth to a baby girl weighing 6lbs 2oz at 11.42pm on Saturday 18 September at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London.

Although her mother is a princess, Sienna, who is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild, will not have a royal title. 

Princess Beatrice ‘s daughter Sienna has been offically named 11th in line to the throne on the Royal Family’s website this week. Last month, Beatrice, 32, and husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi, 38,(seen in July) announced the birth of their firstborn baby daughter called Sienna Elizabeth

And this week the Royal Family’s website updated their line of succession page, placing Sienna in eleventh place, under her mother Princess Beatrice.

The change means that Beatrice’s younger sister Princess Eugenie, 31, has moved down to twelfth in line to the throne, and her son August Brooksbank is now in thirteenth place.

Meanwhile Prince Edward, 57, the Queen’s youngest son, is now number 14 on the succession list. 

Only grandchildren of the monarch through the male line are automatically entitled to the styling of HRH. The Queen could bestow a title on her great-grandchild if desired, but it is unlikely to be asked for. 

This week the Royal family's website updated their line of succession page, placing Sienna in eleventh place, under her mother Princess Beatrice.

Last month Edoardo shared a snap of a print of their daughter’s feet, and wrote: ‘Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us.

‘Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget. This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying….that with every child you grow a whole new heart.’

‘A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.’ 

Later, the official royal family social media page posted the same image, with the caption reading: ‘The couple have said, ‘We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.’

Sienna is an Italian name, likely to have been chosen because of Edo’s roots, but Elizabeth is a touching tribute to Beatrice’s grandmother the Queen.

Chelsea and Westminster is an NHS hospital but houses the private Kensington maternity wing, which charges a starting price of £7,450 for a ‘platinum vaginal delivery package’ and £9,050 for a ‘platinum elective or emergency section package’. 

The price includes meals and accommodation for the partner and a private room for the first night post delivery.  

The baby is the fourth great-grandchild of the Queen to be born this year, following the arrival of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s son August in February, Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas in March and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet in June.

Princess Beatrice names her daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli-Mozzi

Sienna is an Italian given name and is still a flourishing city in Tuscany.

It is currently popular in Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia, where it was among the top ten names given to baby girls in 2006 and 2007 in several states. The original usage of the name is derived from the Italian city and may also refer to the orange-red colour of its clay rooftops burnt orange.

UK royal names are normally chosen from a relatively restricted pool of those used by past kings and queens. 

Elizabeth is a given name and one of many variants derived from a form of the Hebrew name Elisheva, meaning ‘My God is an oath’ or ‘My God is abundance’, as rendered in the Septuagint and popularised by Europe’s embracement of the Bible.

The couple no doubt chose the name as a nod to the Queen, Princess Beatrice’s grandmother. 

Others have also selected the name in recent years, with Prince William calling his daughter Princess Charlotte Elizabeth, while Zara Tindall called her daughter Lena Elizabeth. 

Princess Eugenie's baby will be the second grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and is 11th in line to the throne (pictured, the order of succession). The baby is the fourth great-grandchild of the Queen to be born this year, following the arrival of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's son August in February, Zara and Mike Tindall's son Lucas in March and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter Lilibet in June

Edoardo is the son of former Olympic skier Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Shale. He is a Count himself, and had been a friend of the York children for some time before getting engaged to Beatrice. 

The royal baby who will also be an Italian Nobile Donna

Edoardo is the son of former Olympic skier Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Shale. 

The count previously told MailOnline: ‘Edoardo is the only male descendant 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.’

The title translates to ‘noble woman’.  

Known as Edo to friends, he helped mend Beatrice’s broken heart following her split from Dave Clark in 2016 after 10 years together. 

He was educated at the prestigious Radley school in Oxfordshire before studying for a Master’s in politics at Edinburgh.

Beatrice has long enjoyed a close relationship with her property developer husband’s father. 

The count is keen for the Italian lineage to continue, it seems. He told MailOnline last year: ‘Edoardo is the only male descendant 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.’ 

Edo stands to inherit his father’s glamorous palazzo, Villa Mapelli Mozzi, which is a stone’s throw from Milan in Northern Italy. 

Nikki’s second husband, Edo’s step-father, was Christopher Shale, a senior Tory and a close friend of former prime minister David Cameron.

He collapsed and died in 2011 at Glasonbury Festival, after going missing for about 18 hours before he was found in a cubicle in the VIP area.

An inquest subsequently found he had been suffering from undiagnosed heart disease resulting from high blood pressure. 

So devoted was Edo to his stepfather that he named his son Christopher after him.

Beatrice and the rest of her family attended the funeral, with Nikki eventually becoming engaged for the third time to sculptor David Williams-Ellis.   

Beatrice’s blended family: How the princess will raise her baby alongside stepson Wolfie

By Stephanie Linning 

Princess Beatrice will be one of the few royal mothers to raise children in a blended family after welcoming her daughter.  

Edo already has a five-year-old son Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie, with ex-fiancé Dara Huang. American architect Dara remains on good terms with her ex and his new wife and Beatrice is a hands on stepmother. 

However if Beatrice does need any advice on navigating the complex family dynamics, she doesn’t have far to look for inspiration and guidance.

For her aunt Princess Anne, 70, has successfully raised her children Zara, 40, and Peter, 43, to have close a relationship with their half-sister Stephanie Phillips.

The 23-year-old event rider is the daughter of Princess Anne’s first husband Captain Mark Phillips and his Hawaiian-born second wife Sandy Pflueger, who was part of the US dressage team at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

Stephanie has been pictured at some royal events, serving a flower girl at both Zara’s 2011 wedding to Mike Tindall and Peter’s 2008 wedding to Autumn Kelly.  

She has also shared candid snaps with her half-sister, who is 17 years older.  

No doubt Beatrice will be hoping for a similarly close bond between Wolfie and his new brother or sister. 

Fortunately Beatrice and Edo have the firm support of their families. 

Sarah Ferguson has previously released a statement saying Wolfie is seen as a grandchild and is a ‘much-loved member of the family’.   

‘Wolfie is already a very much-loved member of their family and the duchess is very keen to stress that she sees Wolfie as their grandchild too,’ a spokesperson said, after Princess Eugenie announced her pregnancy last year.  

Dara is also fully supportive of Beatrice, Edo and the blended family and proudly posts about ‘co-parenting’ with Edo on Instagram. 

Last year, a friend of Dara and Edo insisted the estranged couple remain close, with Dara even cutting Edo’s hair and occasionally buying him clothes. 

Their amicable relationship meant Dara was on the original guest list for Edo’s wedding to Beatrice, 32, before the coronavirus pandemic forced the couple to cancel their May nuptialsBeatrice and Edoardo later secretly tied the knot on July 17 in Windsor, with the Queen and Prince Philip in attendance and Wolfie acting as best man.
