Princess Beatrice showed off her burgeoning baby bump as she left a Mayfair private club last night.
The Queen’s granddaughter, 33, who is expecting her first baby this fall with Italian real estate developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, looked effortlessly chic as she stepped into central London.
On her visit to The Arts Club, mother-to-be Beatrice opted for a fashionable look and opted for a sophisticated burgundy velvet jacket paired with a stylish pearl headband.
Founded in 1863, the club has past members including Charles Dickens, Thomas Hughes and Wilkie Collins and costs £2,500 per year for a full membership.

Beatrice paired the statement piece with a black mini dress and a pair of black leather loafers adorned with gold stars.
She kept a fresh face at the event, completing her look with a tweed Chanel clutch and gold bangle, while her locks were held in place with a monochromatic headband.
Beatrice tied the knot with Edo in September 2020 and the couple are expecting a child together later this year.
Sarah – the name of Beatrice’s mother Sarah Ferguson – is the bookies favourite, with Betfair putting it at 8/1 if the little one is a girl, while Ladbrokes has Florence at 4/1, perhaps a tribute to Edo’s Italian roots.

If the new baby is a boy, then Philip is the most likely choice, also on 8/1, as Beatrice can pay tribute to her grandfather who died earlier this year, at the age of 99.
The nickname would also follow in the tradition of the last two royal great-grandchildren.
In February, Beatrice’s sister Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, while their cousin Zara and husband Mike Tindall also welcomed a boy, Lucas Philip Tindall, earlier this year.
Like Lucas, August and Archie, the new baby will not have a title, as only the monarch’s grandchildren will be given HRH nicknames.
Her baby boy or girl will be born 11th in line to the throne, and although their mother is a princess, they will simply be Master or Miss Mozzi – as well as a half-brother and half-sister to Edo’s son, Wolfje.
The baby will be the second grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and will be the eleventh great-grandchild of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh – born shortly after Baby Sussex.

Beatrice, ninth in line to the throne, is the only princess in the British royal family to marry anyone with children and adopt a stepchild.
Her husband, a real estate mogul, shares a young son, two-year-old Christopher “Wolfie” Woolf, with his glamorous former fiancée of three and a half years, Dara Huang.
The only other stepparent in Queen Elizabeth II’s immediate family is her son Prince Charles, who became stepfather to Camilla Parker Bowles’ son Tom and daughter Laura when they married in 2005.
In turn, the Duchess of Cornwall has become a stepmother to William and Harry and a step-grandmother to Wills and Kate’s children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
