Meet 5 Royals That Became Stepparents — from Prince Charles to Princess Beatrice

Princess Beatrice became the most recent stepparent within the royal family. Learn about the other members of British royalty who became stepparents over the years.

The creation of a blended family does not often occur when British royals get married. When it happens, those involved get to enjoy the beauty of extended families. 

Having a royal stepmom or stepdad is certainly fun, but it means that there might be drastic changes for whoever has entered the world of royalty. See who has taken such steps below.

PRINCESS MARIE OF DENMARK

Prince Marie and her husband Prince Joachim of Denmark both became stepparents when they got married. Joachim was previously married to Alexandra, the Countess of Frederiskborn. 

He welcomed two boys, Princes Nikolai and Prince Felix, with her. Marie also brought in two younger children, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena, from a previous relationship. 

CROWN PRINCE OF HAAKON

The Crown Prince Haakon became a stepfather when he married his wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, in 2001. The latter has a son, Marius Borg Høiby, from a previous relationship with Morten Borg. 

Marius has two half-siblings closer to the Norwegian throne: Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Sverre Magnus. Still, Marius reportedly receives the royal treatment.

PRINCESS BEATRICE, COUNTESS

Princess Beatrice is the most recent stepparent within the royal family following her marriage to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in mid-July 2020. She also gained the title of Countess after her union.

Mozzi is father to a son, Christopher Woolf, from his once-fiancée Dara Huang. Little Woolf was the pageboy and best man at Mozzi and Beatrice's private wedding at All Saints Chapel in Great Windsor Park.

CAMILLA, DUCHESS OF CORNWALL

Camilla became a stepparent to Prince William and Prince Harry after she married their father in 2005. Prince Charles' nuptials came about eight years after the death of Princess Diana. 

Charles and Camilla dated long before he got married to Diana. Charles left to join the navy and so Camilla was married to Andrew Parker Bowles for a while. She had two children, Laura Lopes and Tom Parker, from her first marriage.
