Princess Beatrice gives a subtle nod to her grandmother the Queen in baby daughter Sienna's name

PRINCESS Beatrice has announced the name of her first baby with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – and it gives a very subtle nod to the Queen.

Their daughter is called Sienna Elizabeth, with the middle name being a tribute to Beatrice’s grandmother.


Beatrice, 32, gave birth to her first child on September 18 and gushed she was "delighted" at the new arrival.

She revealed the stunning name on Twitter today along with a touching picture featuring a footprint from the new baby.

This follows Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also naming their daughter after the Queen.

Lilibet, who arrived on June 4, was named after the Queen’s childhood nickname.

Some commentators have suggested Lili's name was meant to be an "olive branch" from the Sussexes to the royal family after they stepped down as senior royals last year.

Beatrice is already a stepmother to Edoardo's five-year-old son Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie.

And as she made a sweet nod to the son of her husband, multi-millionaire property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, in today's post.

Beatrice said: "We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.

"We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna."

Edoardo, who wed Beatrice in a secret ceremony last July, also shared his excitement at the news on his official Instagram today.

The baby is the Queen's 12th great-grandchild, and arrives just over three months after Lilibet Diana, Harry and Meghan's second child.

Beatrice's sister Eugenie gave birth to a baby son August in February and Zara Tindall had her third child Lucas in March.

The Queen today shared her excitement at Sienna Elizabeth's touching name by sharing the footprint photo.

A post on the official Royal Family twitter said: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have named their daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi."




We shared how Harry insisted he and Meghan DID tell Queen about Lilibet name and she was ‘supportive’ in war of words with Palace.

And Princess Eugenie shares heartfelt message of congratulations to sister Beatrice after she gave birth to baby girl.
