“This year, 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,” she wrote.

“I have dyslexia and as such 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 I am happy to have shared with lockdown life.”

Beatrice’s younger sister, Princess Eugenie, only just welcomed her first child, a son named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, with her husband, Jack Brooksbank back in February, 2021.

We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank…” the couple wrote on their Instragram. “Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express. We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.⁣

As per People, Beatrice and Edoardo’s bundle of joy—which will sit 11th in line for the throne—will become the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild, following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter, who is due to arrive this year.
