Will Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi have a royal title?
Princess Beatrice’s daughter won’t have an English royal title, but she will be entitled to use an Italian title from her father’s side.
Sienna will be given the Italian title “Nobile Donna” from the Mapelil Mozzi family.
Although Sienna will officially be given this title, it’s unlikely she will use it.
Her grandfather, Alessandro Mapelli-Mozzi, has not used his title.
This explains why Princess Eugenie’s son won’t inherit any titles while his cousin Sienna will.
Princess Beatrice’s daughter is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild.
This currently makes her 11th in line to the throne.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo left royal fans in suspense for almost two weeks after the birth of Sienna, before they decided to announce her name.
