Princess Beatrice's Baby to Inherit Royal Title Although Princess Eugenie's Does Not Have One

Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their firstborn, who is said to arrive in autumn. The baby will receive a royal title due to the father's Italian lineage.


Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mozzi are overjoyed to be expanding their family. While the royal couple is celebrating their soon-to-be party of three, others wonder whether the bundle of joy will receive a royal title.

The answer is yes - Princess Beatrice's child will receive a title, but it's not because of her ties to the British monarchy. It is Mozzi's Italian lineage that determined whether the little one will be given a title.

There may be some confusion surrounding Princess Beatrice's children being given titles, but her younger sister, Princess Eugenie's children, is not afforded the same privilege.


Markle expressed that she was dissatisfied with her son receiving different treatment from his cousins who were all given titles.

It comes down to who each of the princesses married because the title is carried over through the male line. Because Mozzi is an Italian count, his children will also inherit the title of either count or nobile donna, depending on the gender.



Because Princess Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, doesn't hold a title, there wasn't one to be passed down to their firstborn son August. Despite her elaborate title as Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York, her child doesn't hold a title.

Queen Elizabeth did have the option of intervening by giving Brooksbank an earldom or issue a Letters Patent, but she refrained from interfering with the matters of her grandchild.



With Princess Beatrice's child being born into both Italian and British royalty, it begs the question of where he or she will fall in the line of succession to the throne?

The baby will be the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and fall behind Princess Beatrice in the line of succession, placing in 11th place. Prince Charles stands in the front of the line to inherit the throne, followed by Prince William and his children.



While Princess Beatrice managed to secure a title for her children, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle weren't so lucky when it came to their son Archie. During their revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle discussed the issue.

Markle revealed that Archie not receiving a title was not their choice but rather made by the institution. The mother shared that it was not the lack of title for her son that was upsetting but the lack of protection for her son.


Archie will most likely receive a title when Prince Charles becomes king. This is because of a protocol put in place by King George V that says children and grandchildren of a sovereign have the right to the title HRH and prince or princess.

Despite the upgrade on the horizon, Markle expressed that she was dissatisfied with her son receiving different treatment from his cousins, who were all given titles by the Queen.
