Camilla and Beatrice: The sweet connection between Princess Beatrice and Camilla

Fans of the Royal Family will be familiar with the roles of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Beatrice. However, many may not be aware of a sweet connection between the pair.

Camilla and Beatrice are both step-parents via their respective marriages.

After marrying Prince Charles in 2005, Camilla become a stepmother to Prince William and Prince Harry.

Beatrice is the latest royal to get married, tying the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last month.

In doing so, she became stepmother to Edoardo’s son Christopher Woolf, also known as Wolfie.

The four-year-old’s birth mother is Edoardo’s ex-girlfriend Dara Huang.

Speaking to Fabulous Digital last year, royal commentator Phil Dampier Fabulous Digital described Beatrice’s relationship with Wolfie.

He said: “I’ve heard Princess Beatrice is getting on very well with Christopher and would like to have a family of her own soon.”

Prince William and Prince Harry were already adults when their father married Camilla.

Following their 2005 wedding, Harry said that Camilla has “made our father very happy”.

Prince Charles also became a step-parent that year to Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles, who are Camilla’s children from her previous marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.

Charles and Camilla were among the many royals to congratulate Beatrice on her wedding to Edoardo.

They wrote posted on Twitter: “Congratulations to Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on their wedding.”

According to royal commentators, Camilla shares an interest with stepson Prince William.

Speaking on the ITV Royal Rota podcast, Lizzie Robinson said: “There were some lovely pictures of the Duchess at Cornwall Air Ambulance Base in Newquay.

“She got into a helicopter which was called ‘The Duchess of Cornwall’.

“It’s a very good cause, and many people know Prince William was once an air ambulance pilot.

“This is obviously an area that means a lot to the Royal Family all around.”

Upon her recent wedding, Princess Beatrice adopted a new title from the Mapelli Mozzi family.

The 31-year-old has now become a ‘contessa’, which is the Italian equivalent of a countess.

Edoardo’s father, Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, said: “Edoardo is the only male descendant taking the family into the next generation.

“He is a count – his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna (women).”
