Princess Beatrice Rejoices In Her Close Friend's Newborn At A Small Gathering

Princess Beatrice joined the attendees in celebrating the birth of one of her close friend’s babies.

The 35-year-old royal mother was photographed at a gathering honoring entrepreneur Alice Naylor-Leyland’s fourth child, Margot, who was born via surrogate in April.

Beatrice, dressed in a khaki green dress, was seen posing for a group photo featured on Alice’s Instagram page.

Also present were Beatrice’s stylist, Olivia Buckingham, fashion designer Emilia Wickstead, British Vogue’s Deputy Editor Sarah Harris, and socialite Poppy Delevingne.

“The Happiest Day Welcoming Miss Margot. Thank you Dearest @eagletta for having this merry bunch & to @carorupert for all the Treats. Rarely do I wish I could do something all over again, but this was special BEYOND. Thank you, Thank you Girls,” Alice wrote in the caption.

Dressed in a white lace-collared romper, little Margot received affectionate cuddles from the attendees at the gathering. The event was adorned with decorative metallic balloons spelling out her name, as well as a pastel bouquet featuring a delicate flower arrangement.

The 38-year-old businesswoman, who manages the homeware brand and lifestyle blog Mrs. Alice, shared Margot’s arrival in an emotional post on Instagram last month. In her heartfelt message, she candidly discussed the challenges she faced in expanding her family.

She wrote: “Welcome to the world little one. It’s been a journey to get you into our arms but we are so grateful you are here. I’m aware it was greedy to have this burning desire to complete our family, but due to too many complications, setbacks and miscarriages & then being told I was no longer able to carry, we decided to venture down the world of surrogacy.

“Without the kindness & courage of our dear surrogate & the brilliance of modern science using our own embryo, we would not be here. It’s been a bonkers journey but now we’ve arrived, I can’t wait to enjoy every minute. Thank you to the love, kindness & support of ALL who helped bring our miracle into this world.”

Alice and Princess Beatrice have been close friends for many years, often photographed together at various events, including the Chelsea Flower Show and gatherings at Annabel’s private members club in Mayfair, London.

Beatrice, who shares two-year-old daughter Sienna with her property developer husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, is also a stepmother to Edoardo’s son, Christopher Woolf, affectionately known as Wolfie.

Meanwhile, Alice and her husband, Thomas Philip Naylor-Leyland, heir to one of Britain’s land-owning dynasties, have three older children named Billy, Nancy, and Felix. The family currently resides at Stibbington House in Cambridgeshire.
