Princess Beatrice’s baby name is a doubly sweet tribute to Sarah Ferguson

PRINCESS BEATRICE and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi paid tribute to Sarah Ferguson with the first name given to their daughter, according to a source.

Sienna originates from the city of Siena in Tuscany.

However, a family friend of the couple has claimed this name also presents two links to the child’s grandmother, the Duchess of York.

Siena also gave the name to “Terra di Siena”, used to indicate an earthy and warm orange-brown colour – similar to the one of Sarah’s signature hair.

Moreover, the name Siena begins with the same letter as the Duchess’ name.

The source told Hello! magazine: “They were looking for an Italian name which started with an S for Sarah, to honour the Duchess, and also reflected the golden rust colour of both the Duchess’s hair colour and Beatrice’s, which the new baby shares.”

Three days after the birth of Sienna, a source close to the Duchess of York first claimed the baby may have inherited her mother and grandmother’s flame-coloured hair.

They told the Daily Mail: “She’s got a hint of red… and a hint of gold”.

Princess Beatrice announced the name of her baby with a brief message she shared on her personal Twitter account.

It read: “We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.

“We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.”

The new mum opted to protect the privacy of her daughter and, rather than publish online a picture of the child, shared a picture portraying the footprint of Sienna, taken on the day she was born.

Sienna’s doting dad Edoardo also shared this snap on his Instagram account.

He paired it with a heartwarming message, showing his happiness at being the father of both a boy and a girl.

He wrote: “Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us.

“Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie.

“These are the days I never want to forget.

“This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying… that with every child you grow a whole new heart.

“A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital”.

Siena won’t receive a royal title but will still be included in the line of succession to the throne.

She currently is 11th-in-line, followed by her aunt Princess Eugenie and cousin August Philip Hawke, born on February 9.

While August was the Queen’s ninth great-grandchild, Sienna is the 12th-great-grandchild welcomed by the sovereign during her life.

Over the past few months, the Royal Family also welcomed the birth of Lucas Tindall, the son of Mike and Zara Tindall, and Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Meghan and Prince Harry’s daughter.
