Happy Birthday to Princess Beatrice of York, Countess Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi! The eldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, she is the eldest male-line granddaughter of the Queen. Princess Beatrice has a younger sister, Princess Eugenie, and her parents divorced when she was six years old, though she has described them as “the best divorced couple” she knows. Educated at the Upton House School in Windsor followed by Coworth Park School and St George’s School in Ascot before getting a BA in history and history of ideas at Goldsmiths College, London, Princess Beatrice suffered from dyslexia as a child, and is quite active with a variety of charity endeavours. She does not carry out public duties but does undertake public engagements for charities and attends some royal events. In 2020, she got married to Count Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. We wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
