Beatrice, 32, and Mr Mapelli Mozzi married in July last year in a secret wedding after the planned ceremony was postponed due to pandemic.
The baby will be the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and the news has brought joy to the royal family, who are mourning the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, last month.
The news also comes as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child and are celebrating their third wedding anniversary.
