Princess Beatrice of York is the ninth in line to the British throne, and the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
But what does she do for a living and who is her husband? Here are all the important facts:
The older sister of Princess Eugenie, Beatrice was born on August 8, 1988 in Portland Hospital, London.
Her full name is Beatrice Elizabeth Mary, with both middle names referencing her grandmother’s full name. She was the Queen’s fifth eldest grandchild, and is ninth in line to the throne as of 2022.
Beatrice and Eugenie are the children of Prince Andrew, Duke Of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, though their parents split in 1996.
In 2005, Beatrice revealed that she suffers from dyslexia, and has done since the age of seven.
Beatrice works for a US-based technology company called Afiniti, according to People.
In 2016, it was reported that the royal’s Linkedin page revealed she worked as a research associate for Children In Crisis.
Beatrice was also said to have worked for an investment firm for some time, before becoming an international production analyst at Sony Pictures.
Also In 2016, the royal was reported to be looking to become a business consultant. Buckingham Palace said at the time: “Princess Beatrice continues to pursue a career in business.
“Beyond this we have never commented on individual employers. We would not comment on how the princess is spending her private time.”
Princess Beatrice confirmed her relationship with boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in December 2018, when they attended the Berggruen Prize Gala at the New York Public Library together.
Known as Edo, he is CEO of Banda Property, a London-based property development company specialising in creating "exceptional homes". He is also the founder of a charity called Cricket Builds Hope, which teaches Rwandans how to play cricket as a tool for positive social change in the country.
Beatrice and Edoardo married in July 2020 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor, and was not publicly announced in advance, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
She previously had a 10-year romance with Dave Clark, an executive for cab app Uber. However, their relationship came to an end in 2016.
Clark has since married girlfriend Lynn Anderson after a whirlwind romance of less than two years.
