Upon her recent wedding, Princess Beatrice adopted a new title from the Mapelli Mozzi family.
The 31-year-old has now become a ‘contessa’, which is the Italian equivalent of a countess.

“He is a count – his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna (women).”
