Princess Beatrice has announced she is expecting her first child with husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
The Queen's granddaughter and her partner - nicknamed Edo - are to welcome the little one in autumn, an official statement from the palace has now confirmed.
"The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news".
It comes after Beatrice and Edoardo married in July of last year.
The pair tied the knot in a small ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor alongside The Queen, the now late Prince Philip and close family, after their initial May 29th wedding date was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Buckingham Palace, the wedding took place in accordance with government guidelines, and no more than around 20 guests were in attendance.
The Queen's granddaughter and her new husband Edo were originally meant to get married at the Chapel Royal, in St James's Palace, London, with 150 guests.
Beatrice started dating Edoardo back in September 2018, a month before Princess Eugenie's wedding.
They announced their engagement one year later, revealing Edo had proposed during a romantic getaway to Italy.
Edo - who has a four-year-old son, named Christopher, from a previous relationship - was engaged to American architect Dara Huang for three-and-a-half years, but they split up not long before he met Beatrice.
Meanwhile, Beatrice had previously dated Uber exec Dave Clark for ten years before calling time on their relationship back in 2016.
