Princess Beatrice's original name was changed shortly after birth after Queen's concern


It has been little over a week since Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed their baby into the world but royal fans are still none the wiser as to what the latest addition to the royal family could be called. Buckingham Palace announced last Monday that Prince Andrew’s eldest daughter had given birth to a 6lb 2oz child at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

It is not uncommon for Royals to take their time before announcing the name of a newborn.

Earlier this year, Princess Beatrice’s younger sister Eugenie waited 11-days before revealing her son was called August.

And Queen Elizabeth II and the late Prince Philip waited even longer.

They delayed their announcement for around a month before telling the world they had named their first-born Charles.

But when Beatrice was born, in August 1988, the Queen was said to have expressed her disapproval at her second oldest granddaughter’s original name.

The Sun reports that Her Majesty had her reservations about the name put forward by Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

In fact, it was even claimed the York’s took two weeks to announce their daughter’s name following the Queen’s concerns.

Fergie supposedly had her heart set on calling her daughter Annabel but the Queen considered it too “yuppie”.
