When Princess Beatrice marries Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi she'll inherit a new title.

Though the queen has given titles to William and Kate who became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Harry and Meghan who now go by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, she won't be the one giving Beatrice a new title.

Her Royal Highness, Princess Beatrice of York, will go from Miss to Mrs – and also become a "Contessa" and "Nobile Donna".

Though we know Edoardo as Beatrice's property developer fiancé, he also descends from Italian aristocracy, reports People.

He is the eldest son of Olympian skier and member of the Italian noble family, Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi, which means he will inherit the family's ancestral seat and the 18th century Villa Mapelli Mozzi palace in Italy.

Edo's dad explained, "Edoardo is the only male descendent 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."

Princess Beatrice is set to marry Edoardo on Friday, 29 May 2020, at The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace.

The royal wedding will be a "low-key" affair, with "a private reception" shortly after hosted at Buckingham Palace by none other than Her Majesty, the queen.
