Princess Beatrice is celebrating her 34th birthday today (August 8).
The Queen's granddaughter has had a busy year so far.
Alongside her sister Eugenie, she's been reported to be "quietly healing rifts" between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the Royal Family, according to a royal expert.
Meanwhile, the princess has also been adjusting to motherhood after welcoming her first child, whose first birthday she will be celebrating next month.
Beatrice has also been renovating a countryside property and is sure to be busy with the move away from London, which her family are expected to embark on this year.
As she celebrates her birthday, we've taken a look into Beatrice's adorable family life and lavish homes — here's everything you need to know.
Who is Princess Beatrice married to?
Princess Beatrice is married to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Edoardo, who is also known as Edo, is an English property developer and CEO.
He is the son of Alessandro "Alex" Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Williams-Ellis.
Edo's father is a British-Italian skier who is a former Olympian, and he reportedly has ties to the Italian aristocracy.
His family have been close to Beatrice's parents for years, and in a statement about the couple's engagement, Edo's parents said that they've "known Beatrice for most of her life".
In 2007, Edo founded the real estate firm Banda and is currently the CEO of the company.
Dating rumours were first sparked in 2018 and in 2019 the pair confirmed their relationship when they made their first public appearance together at a gala held at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
Later that year, Edoardo proposed to Beatrice while on a romantic holiday in Italy.
The happy couple wed on July 17 2020, in an intimate ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor.
Due to covid restrictions, only the Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and close family were in attendance.
Does Princess Beatrice have children?
In September 2021, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo welcomed their first child together.
Announcing the birth, an official statement from the Palace said: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.
"The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
"The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care."
The couple named their daughter Sienna Elizabeth but have not yet revealed any photos of her.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice is also a stepmother.
Edoardo has a son from a former relationship.
Six-year-old Christopher Woolf, also known as Wolfie, is regularly spotted out with the family and attended Jubilee celebrations with them in June.
Where does Princess Beatrice live?
It's reported that Princess Beatrice currently lives in a four-bedroom apartment in St James' Palace with her husband and baby daughter.
A number of senior royals reside in the lavish palace; according to the official website of the Royal Family, St James' palace currently contains the "London residences of The Prince of Wales, The Princess Royal and Princess Alexandra".
However, it's believed that Beatrice and her family will soon be relocating to the Cotswolds, after purchasing a £3.5million countryside home last year.
Beatrice is said to have renovated the six-bedroom farmhouse and installed six-foot high security gates.
The Express reports that the family are expected to move to the stunning home some time this year.
