Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's childhood connection laid bare


However, some people might not know Beatrice and Edoardo share a childhood connection.

Prince Andrew, 61, and Sarah Ferguson, 62, welcomed their eldest daughter to the Firm at Portland Hospital in London on August 8, 1988.

But just five years earlier, on November 19, future husband Edo was born at the very same hospital.

The chief executive of Banda Property is the son of British Olympian and member of the Italian nobility Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, 70.

However, Beatrice and Edo are not the only members of the Royal Family to be born at Portland Hospital.

Beatrice’s sister Eugenie, 31, was born at the prestigious London hospital in 1990 as was Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, two, in 2019.

While Beatrice and Edo’s daughter Sienna was not born at the same hospital, sister Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, 35, opted to welcome son August to the world at Portland last February.
