“He is a count – his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna.”
Beatrice and Edo, who is descended from Italian aristocracy, tied the knot last July in Windsor after their planned wedding was postponed due to the pandemic.
The Queen was among guests at the low-key ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge.

At the time, Buckingham Palace said: “The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May.
“Working within Government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.”
The couple announced their engagement in September 2019 following a whirlwind romance.
Their families have known one another for years and they began dating in autumn 2018 after meeting again at Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding.

“The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news,” the palace added.
