The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson welcomed a baby girl to the world on September 18. Beatrice, 33, and her husband Edoardo, 38, announced they had named her Sienna earlier this month. However, there was already an important child in her life before then – Wolfie, Edoardo’s son from a previous relationship.
The boy, five, was born in 2016 out of Edoardo’s relationship with his then-fiancée, the American architect Dara Huang.
Princess Beatrice has shown huge affection for Wolfie, whose full name is Christopher Woolf Mapelli Mozzi, on multiple occasions.
When announcing her newborn’s name, she tweeted: “We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.”
This was regarded as a way to ensure the young boy is seen as a part of her family, regardless of not being her biological child.
Princess Beatrice entered her marriage with Edoardo as a stepmother to Wolfie and the bond between the two has seemed natural and spontaneous from day one.
Wolfie had a key role at the wedding, which took place last June in a secret ceremony in Windsor, acting as both page boy and best man for his father.
At the time, a friend of the couple told the Daily Mail that Beatrice was “totally into the stepmum role” and “devoted” to the boy.
They said: “She’s very concerned about getting it right and making every effort to be a second mother to Wolfie.
“She’s ensured there are loads of pictures of him up in their house, so he feels like he has two families, and they do get on well.
“Bea has always been really close to Edo’s family, so it’s natural that Wolfie should become part of hers.
“He’s a super little boy and extremely cute.”
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Princess Beatrice last year shared how much the two enjoy reading together – Oi Frog books by Kes Grey and Jim Field being their favourite: “I had the great honour to become a stepmother, and have had the most remarkable time going back over some of my most favourite stories at bedtime.”

Speaking about lockdown, she said: “My stepson has been, as many children have, homeschooling this term.
“Helping him to engage with stories is a great journey to inspire imagination, creativity, independence and humour.”
Having dyslexia hasn’t stopped the Queen’s granddaughter from bonding with Wolfie over “reading stories” and “finding laughter and a little magic”.
She said: “Reading has never been my strongest talent, however, having a little more time to take a moment to really get into stories has been a gift.”
With the arrival of Sienna, not all attention can be on Wolfie anymore. For this reason, it is thought that Beatrice may have thought of a special Halloween treat for her “bonus son”, as she sometimes refers to him so he doesn’t feel like he is missing out.
Proud father Edoardo had some beautiful words for his newborn daughter Sienna on Instagram: “Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us.
“These are the days I never want to forget.”
He too made sure to present his wife, newborn daughter and son as one united family: “Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie.”
Coming half-term, Beatrice and Edoardo will surely find a way to make Wolfie feel cherished at home. Princess Beatrice may even have found some spooky books for them to go through together.
