Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi revealed their daughter’s name on Friday and their baby girl shares a sweet connection with her mother and several royal family members, including Princess Charlotte and Lady Louise Windsor.
The new parents confirmed that they have named their bundle of joy, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.
Sienna’s middle name pays tribute to her great-grandmother, the Queen, and she isn’t the only one.

Several royals have the middle name Elizabeth in honour of the Queen
The royals are very traditional when it comes to choosing baby names.
The monarch’s full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, in tribute to her grandmother Queen Mary of Teck and her great-grandmother Alexandra of Denmark, who was Edward VII’s Queen consort.
While the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their children’s names around two to three days after their births, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice both took nearly two weeks to confirm their babies’ monikers.
Historically, the monarch would have had to approve the name of any royal baby and although that is no longer the case, the Queen’s family members usually reveal the baby’s name to her before announcing it publicly.
