Born in Portland Hospital, London, Beatrice attended St George’s School, Ascot, before studying at Goldsmiths College, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in history.
She was briefly employed at the Foreign Office and Sony Pictures before joining software company Afiniti as Vice President of Strategic Partnerships.

Early Life and Education
Princess Beatrice was born at 8:18 pm on 8 August 1988 at the Portland Hospital, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, and fifth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
She was baptised in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace on 20 December 1988, her godparents being: Viscount Linley (her father’s cousin, now the 2nd Earl of Snowdon); the Duchess of Roxburghe (now Lady Jane Dawnay); Peter Palumbo; Gabrielle Greenall; and Carolyn Cotterell. Her name, an unexpected choice, was not announced until almost two weeks after her birth.
Beatrice’s parents divorced amicably when she was seven years old. The Duke and Duchess of York had agreed to joint custody of their two children.
After the divorce, the Queen provided her parents with £1.4 million to set up a trust fund for her and Eugenie. Beatrice and her sister frequently travelled abroad with one or both of their parents.
Beatrice began her early education at the independent Upton House School in Windsor, in 1991.
From there, she and her sister both attended the independent Coworth Park School (now Coworth Flexlands School) from 1995.
Beatrice continued her education at the independent St George’s School in Ascot, where she was a pupil from 2000 to 2007.
She was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven and went public with the diagnosis in 2005.
She delayed sitting her GCSE exams for one year. She remained at St George’s to take her A-Levels, earning an ‘A’ in drama, a ‘B’ in history, and a ‘B’ in film studies.
She was elected Head Girl in her final year, and was a member of the school choir.
After two years’ study, she gained a grade A in drama, and B grades in history and film studies. Beatrice celebrated her 18th birthday with a masked ball at Windsor Castle in July 2006. Nikolai von Bismarck took her official birthday portrait.
In September 2008, Beatrice started a three-year course studying for a BA in history and history of ideas at Goldsmiths, University of London. She graduated in 2011 with a 2:1 degree.
During the summer of 2008, Beatrice obtained work experience as a sales assistant at Selfridges.
She also worked at the Foreign Office’s press office for a period of time without receiving a salary. It was also reported in 2008 that Beatrice was interested in pursuing a career at the Financial Times website.
Beatrice was the first member of the family to appear in a non-documentary film when she had a small, non-speaking role as an extra in The Young Victoria (2009), based on the accession and early reign of her ancestor Queen Victoria.
For a while, she was a paid intern at Sony Pictures, but she resigned after the hacking incident that affected the company in late 2014.
In April 2015, it was reported that Beatrice had decided to move to New York City. As of April 2017, Beatrice had a full-time job and split her time between London and New York City.
She is known as Beatrice York in her professional life and is Vice President of Partnerships and Strategy at Afiniti.
She is also in charge of an Afiniti programme to engage senior business chiefs around the world to support women in leadership. She works with the programme through charity endeavours and speaking engagements.
In January 2022, it was reported that Beatrice had lost her taxpayer-funded police security in 2011, supposedly after her uncle Charles III (then Prince of Wales) intervened.
In 2006, Beatrice was briefly in a relationship with Paolo Liuzzo, an American whose previous charge for assault and battery caused controversy at the time.
For ten years, until July 2016, she was in a relationship with Virgin Galactic businessman Dave Clark.
In March 2019, Beatrice attended a fundraising event at the National Portrait Gallery, London, accompanied by property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the son of Alex Mapelli-Mozzi, a former British Olympian and descendant of the Italian nobility; the BBC describes Edoardo as “also a count”, like his father, however that title is not officially recognised in Italy or the UK.
The couple are believed to have begun dating in September 2018. Together, they attended the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor, Beatrice’s second cousin once removed.
Princess Beatrice and Mozzi became engaged in Italy in September 2019, with their engagement formally announced by the Duke of York’s Office on 26 September.
The wedding was scheduled to take place on 29 May 2020 at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, followed by a private reception in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, but first the reception and then the wedding itself were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The wedding was eventually held in private on 17 July 2020, at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor, and was not publicly announced in advance.
Beatrice’s father walked her down the aisle. Her wedding dress was a remodelled Norman Hartnell dress that was loaned by the Queen, and she wore the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara that was also worn by the Queen at her own wedding.
Princess Beatrice has a stepson, Christopher Woolf (born 2016), her husband’s child from a relationship with architect Dara Huang.
She gave birth to a daughter, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, on 18 September 2021 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in Chelsea, London.
With the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022, the child became 10th in line to the throne.
Sienna was christened at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, on 29 April 2022.
