When Princess Beatrice revealed to the world and royal fans that she and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had an intimate wedding — everyone was delighted and assumed that a pregnancy would follow.
After her brief honeymoon, Princess Beatrice was photographed taking part in a few activities, and her choice of clothing led some to believe that she was pregnant with her first royal baby.
As it turned out, Princess Beatrice will be a first-time aunt because her sister, Princess Eugenie, is expecting her first child.
When Princess Beatrice does have a child, she will be a first-time mother, whereas her husband has had his hands in this for more than four years.
Mozzi, 37, shares a four-year-old boy, Christopher Woolf Mapelli Mozzi, with American ex-wife and architect Dara Huang.
The property designer recently did a lengthy interview with the Financial Times. He spoke about an exciting book that has royal fans going into a frenzy because they think that Princess Beatrice might have a pregnancy announcement soon.
Mozzi said he has been reading How to raise successful people: simple lessons for radical results, a book by famed American educator Esther Wojcicki, who has raised three highly successful daughters — Janet Wojcicki, Anne Wojcicki, and Susan Wojcicki — one is a Professor of Pediatrics and researcher, another is the co-founder of 23andMe, and the last one is the CEO of YouTube.
Wojcicki, who holds multiple diplomas from Sorbonne and Berkeley, came up with the child-raising technique “TRICK.”
Mozzi explained: “There is nothing more important than raising and educating our kids and doing it well, and she has achieved this using the word trick: T is for trust, R is for respect, I for Independence, C for Collaboration and K is for Kindness.”
He added: “[Esther] has three accomplished daughters: One is the CEO of YouTube, the other is the co-founder and CEO of 23andMe, and the third is a top anthropologist and epidemiologist.”
He gave a little glimpse into his life with Queen Elizabeth‘s granddaughter.
He made this sweet revelation: “The best gift I’ve ever given is a bronze figurative sculpture, which I commissioned from my stepfather, the sculptor David Williams-Ellis, for my wife’s birthday last year. His studio is next to my mother’s house, so we’d see him in there every day covered in clay. It’s so special for us to have a piece of his work in our home.”
He revealed that his most precious possession is his wedding ring.
