Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi put on a much-loved display as they headed to a lunch spot in London today.
The Queen’s 32-year-old granddaughter, who is expecting her first baby at the Italian property developer in the fall of 2021, wore a chic loose floral dress, which she paired with a military-style khaki jacket and casual white trainers.
The mother-to-be, who wore her auburn hair in a loose bun, adorned with the same oversized shades and wicker basket she wore as she dined outside in London on Saturday with her husband.
It is the first time the royal family has been seen since her cousin Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced the birth of their daughter Lilibet yesterday afternoon.
The 7lb 11oz baby – whose middle name is Diana – was born Friday night, UK time, at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, a private facility where births cost up to £20,000.

Princess Beatrice, who completed her look by opting for natural make-up, wore her sunglasses on her head and put safety first by wearing a protective mask in accordance with coronavirus guidelines.
Edo, who opted for dark blue trousers, a light blue shirt and beige shoes, would see his arm around his wife as they strolled the streets of the capital.
On Saturday, Princess Beatrice saw a gentle hand on her budding baby bump as she had lunch with her husband before heading to the London store.
Before that, the royal was last spotted on May 28, where she opted for an understated outfit in a bright blue hoodie paired with a black puffer jacket.

The princess completed her casual ensemble with black leggings and fashionable sneakers, carrying a handbag in one hand and her phone in the other.
She kept her look low-key by seemingly wearing no makeup and putting her hair in a stylish bun.
Beatrice and her Italian real estate developer, who tied the knot on July 17 last year, announced their good news earlier this month and the Queen and both families are said to be “elated”.
Beatrice’s baby will be Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s second grandchild and the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild after the arrival of Lilibet.
The princess’s baby boy or girl will be born 11th in line to the throne, but although their mother is a princess, he or she will not have a royal title.
Only grandchildren of the monarch through the male line are automatically entitled to HRH’s styling. This means that he or she will simply be Master or Miss Mapelli Mozzi.
The Queen could grant a title to her great-grandchild if desired, but it is unlikely to be requested.
Beatrice became an aunt earlier this year when her sister Eugenie gave birth to her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank on February 9.

Since revealing her happy news, Beatrice has been inundated with congratulations from benefactors around the world.
‘Ahhh good news! Congratulations to the couple!!! I am so happy for them and the whole family! I can’t wait to meet him/her’, says an enthusiastic.
A second suggested a moving tribute to Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at the age of 99, writing: ‘I would love a girl this time. Perhaps beautiful Philippa.’
A third added: “Congratulations to the couple. The Queen needed a lot of good news after the loss of her puppy. This is it.’
A fourth wrote: ‘Yay! Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice and Edoardo! What happy news the royal family needed!’ while a fifth commented: ‘Congratulations, it’s time for the Queen to have some good news.’
Beatrice will be one of the few royal mothers to raise children in a blended family when she welcomes her son or daughter this year.
Edo already has a five-year-old son Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie, with ex-fiancée Dara Huang. American architect Dara remains on good terms with her ex and his new wife, and Beatrice is considered a practical stepmother.
