Princess Beatrice’s child “could be entitled to an honorific title” in Italy, royal commentators have claimed. The new royal baby is expected to arrive in autumn this year. Royally Obsessed podcast host Roberta Fiorito gave insight into how the Princess of York’s husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and his own dynasty could have an impact.
She told listeners: “The baby could have a royal title, but not from Beatrice.
“Edo is an Italian count in addition to being a real estate magnate for Banda Property.
“So the baby could be entitled to an honorific title of Conte or Nobildonna.
“Nobildonna for a girl, which means Noblewoman, or Conte if it’s a boy.”

Ms Fiorito continued: “So it’s kind of exciting to have an Italian noble.
“I suppose Beatrice became a Countess when she married Edo.”
According to Vanity Fair, Edoardo belongs to the Italian royal House of Savoy, one of Europe’s oldest dynasties.
Last year, his father, Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, gave insight into how this affects Beatrice and their children.
These are only courtesy titles and would not be legally active in Britain.
This is because the Italian monarchy was dissolved in 1946.
Beatrice and Edoardo were married last summer in a secret ceremony at Windsor Castle.
Their wedding has originally been planned to take place in May.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it had to be rescheduled and slimmed down.
