Beatrice is understood to have already returned home with her new addition to the family.

Her mum Sarah, Duchess of York was described by a family friend as being "absolutely over the moon".

To my new niece I love you already and think you're just awesome.

Sarah met her new granddaughter over the weekend after returning from a stay at Balmoral on Friday.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

"The baby weighs 6lb and 2oz.

"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."

CLARENCE HOUSE 'CONGRATS'

The princess is stepmum to Mr Mapelli Mozzi's young son "Wolfie", from his previous relationship with ex-fiancee Dara Huang.

The baby is 11th in line to the throne, and is the Queen's 12th great-grandchild.

She is the second to be born since the Duke of Edinburgh's death, following the arrival of the Sussexes' daughter Lili in June.

Clarence House posted a message to the family, tweeting: "Congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on the happy news of the birth of their daughter."

Bookmakers Ladbrokes has Matilda and Florence leading the betting on the baby's name, at odds of 4/1 and 9/2.

The princess and millionaire property tycoon Mapelli Mozzi married in July 2020 in a secret lockdown wedding.

The event was attended by the Queen and Philip after the couple's planned ceremony was postponed because of the Covic pandemic.

LATEST ROYAL BIRTH

Beatrice is the eldest daughter of the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, with the baby being the Yorks' second grandchild and first granddaughter.

Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed a baby boy, August, who weighed 8lbs 1oz, on February 9, 2021.

The sisters will be delighted to have their children so close together in age and to share the experience of being first-time mothers.

Their cousin Zara Tindall welcomed her third child in March, a baby boy named Lucas Philip Tindall in a touching nod to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Husband Mike confirmed the happy news on his podcast – and revealed the Queen's "warrior" granddaughter gave birth on the bathroom floor.

Meanwhile Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have since had daughter Lili, but the Sussexes are thousands of miles away in the US.

Beatrice, who is not a full-time working royal, is vice president of partnerships and strategy at Afiniti, an artificial intelligence software firm.

She has a number of royal patronages including the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice, the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre.

In August, she spoke of how her own dyslexia was a "gift" because it has offered her different skills in life and that her own child or her "bonus son" Wolfie would be lucky if diagnosed with it.
