The Queen’s granddaughter, Princess Beatrice of York, has given birth to her first child — a baby girl.

The 33-year-old Princess took to social media on Monday to announce the arrival of her first child with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

“So delighted to share the news of the safe arrival of our daughter . . . at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London,” she wrote.

“Thank you to the midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care.”

The baby girl becomes the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and 11th in line to the British throne.

Buckingham Palace said the baby weighs six pounds, two ounces and was born shortly before midnight on Saturday, local time.

“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news,” the Royal Palace said in a statement.

“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.”

Princess Beatrice is the daughter of Prince Andrew.
