Princess Beatrice becomes the first stepmother among the young generation of royals when she marries Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2020.
The tycoon property shares a young son, two-year-old Christopher & # 39; Wolfie & # 39; Woolf, with his glamorous former fiance of three and a half years, Dara Huang.
Beatrice, who is in ninth place on the throne, is a granddaughter of the queen and the only princess to marry someone with children and adopt a stepchild.
The only other stepparent in the direct family of Queen Elizabeth II is her son Prince Charles, who became the stepfather of son Tom and daughter Laura of Camilla Parker Bowles when they married in 2005.

In turn, the Duchess of Cornwall has become a stepmother of William and Harry and a stepmother of the children of Wills and Kate, Prince George (six), Princess Charlotte (four) and Prince Louis (one).
Edoardo, 34, and Chinese-American interior designer Dara, founder of the successful company DH Liberty, previously lived together in London and still shared their homes since last year despite their split – although he has since moved in with Beatrice at St James Palace
A good Edoardo family friend stated that the couple broke up for six months before he started Beatrice.
Beatrice, who has known Edoardo for several years, is said to have started a romantic relationship with the millionaire after meeting him again on Eugenie's marriage to her long-standing partner Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle in October last year.
Buckingham Palace today announced their engagement, with Princess Beatrice's sister, Eugenie, posting her congratulations on Instagram and sharing a photo she herself took of the happy couple.

Beatrice would be the first among the young generation of royal houses to take on a stepchild, because Edoardo was previously engaged for three and a half years to the mother of his child, Dara Huang, (whom he split off last year)
Beatrice and Mr. Mapelli Mozzi said about their 11-month whirlwind romance in a statement: & We are very happy that we can share the news of our recent engagement.
& # 39; We are both so excited to embark on this life adventure together and can't wait to get married.
& # 39; We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will be of great value to us in the coming years, full of love and happiness. & # 39;

He has dual British and Italian nationality, but as a British citizen only, Mr Mozzi is not eligible for his father's title.
Edoardo is the stepson of former Prime Minister David Cameron, the deceased friend Christopher Shale, who died of a heart attack at the Glastonbury festival in 2011.
He is Beatrice's first public friend since she said goodbye to Uber director Dave Clark after 10 years together.
Princess Beatrice's engagement is a rare good news for her father, Prince Andrew, amid Jeffrey Epstein's death, claiming he slept with one of his sex slaves who had flooded the House of York.
In recent weeks, the Duke of York's friendship with the sham billionaire pedophile has drawn him into a scandal that has shocked the royal family.
