Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi might be welcoming their bundle of joy a tad sooner than expected!

Hinting at the same in a recent interview with Hello! magazine, Beatrice opened up about being diagnosed dyslexic from the age of seven and embracing it every step along the way. But, fans were in for a pleasant surprise when the royal dropped hints about another anticipated news--a shorter waiting time for the birth of her child.

According to Mirror, Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter revealed that her baby was expected to be at home in a “couple of months time”, which also meant having more detailed conversations about things like parenting a dyslexic child if at all their newborn was diagnosed with the condition.

While it was originally stated by Buckingham Palace that the baby was due only later this year, it now appears that the next royal baby will make its entry in a month or two!

Despite the roadblocks, Beatrice believes that the medical condition was a “gift” and how thinking optimistically and out-of-the-box could make a world of difference. While she quipped that her spellings can be appalling, she was thankful for spellchecks to have that sorted for her, the outlet noted. The pregnant princess is the patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.

Things may have been challenging on many fronts since the past year, Beatrice expressed immense gratitude for being able to spend quality time with Mozzi's son Wolfie, who she named her “bonus son”. The princess might not really be a fan of home-schooling, but she’s happy to have waded through these challenging times unscathed.

The freewheeling chat saw Beatrice get rather candid about a host of things— including her husband’s battle with dyslexia and playing step mum to Wolfie. Mozzi shares his son with former partner Dara Huang.

Beatrice and Mozzi’s child will be the 12th great-grandchild in line, falling right after the Sussexes’ newborn daughter Lilibet in June. Beatrice and Mozzi’s plush wedding plans had to take a detour last year due to the protracted coronavirus-induced lockdowns. The couple walked down the aisle in a secret ceremony in Windsor last July, with only a select few guests in attendance. Wolfie was present at the wedding and took on ‘Best Man’ duties at the wedding.

Insiders from the couple’s circle believe Beatrice has been putting consistent efforts to be a great second mum to Wolfie, in order to establish and sustain a rapport with him.
