Princess Beatrice: Will The Royal Baby Have A Special Name?
Princess Beatrice's baby is here! The royal's daughter was born on Saturday, and there's been some wild speculation about the name of the little one. Will Beatrice and Edoardo choose a special name for the royal baby?
The British Royal Family is beaming about the arrival of a new royal baby.
Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi became parents of a little daughter on Saturday evening. They haven't announced the name just yet, a tradition that is not uncommon for the first few days—and sometimes weeks—with the royals.
Princess Beatrice's baby girl: What will the name be?
Many now assume that Beatrice, like her sister and many of her cousins, will choose a name that honours a family member. Above all, the name of her mother, Sarah Ferguson, is at the top of the list — as is the name of Edoardo's mother, Nicola.
In addition, the name Victoria is a very popular prediction. Beatrice herself is said to be very interested in the story of her great-great-great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.
Other royals have recently honoured the Queen and Princess Diana (Harry and Meghan's daughter Lilibet) and Prince Albert and Prince Philip (Eugenie and Jack's son August), so we'll see what route Beatrice takes.
