She's the third woman in the line of succession. Princess Charlotte is the first, followed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet.

Beatrice can usually be spotted along with other members of the royal family at ceremonial events like Trooping the Colour.

Beatrice is 19 months older than her sister, Eugenie. They're pictured with their cousins in Klosters, Switzerland, in January 1995.

She was Head Girl at St. George's School in Ascot.

After studying history, she graduated from the University of London in 2011.

She studied history and the history of ideas at Goldsmiths College, achieving a 2:1, before starting internships, according to the BBC.

Her first job was "a research analyst at a boutique private wealth firm," according to her current employer.

Her bio on the royal family's official website says that she now "works full time in business."

She's been described as a "business matchmaker" connecting startups with potential investors in her work with Afiniti, an American software company, where she is vice president of partnerships and strategy.

The company's website says she "is responsible for the management of the strategic Afiniti partnerships as well as company growth through unique initiatives and client development."

The Daily Beast speculated in 2017 that she was working more as a brand ambassador since the company had declined to further explain her involvement. The Duke of York's office has simply said that she's "continuing to work in business."

She's also patron of a number of charities focused on improving the lives of young people.

She supports Children in Crisis and Teenage Cancer Trust, among others.

She also meets renowned changemakers through her charity programs.

OK! magazine previously reported that Beatrice and her sister were worth an estimated $4.6 million.

That fortune, which the magazine estimated in 2018, reportedly comes from royal trust funds as well as from accounts set up after Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson divorced in 1996.

Princess Beatrice is friends with Karlie Kloss and other celebrities, and she has accompanied them on glamorous vacations.

On a 2018 vacation in Jordan's Wadi Rum Desert, Princess Beatrice was joined by Victoria's Secret supermodel Karlie Kloss, singer Ellie Goulding, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, and Joshua Kushner — Jared Kushner 's brother and Kloss' husband.

She even attended Kloss and Kushner's second wedding in Wyoming in June 2019, according to Kloss' Instagram.

She combines her fashion sense with her charity work on occasion.

The hat was later auctioned off for charity for $109,435, according to Marie Claire.

But she's worn eye-catching fascinators at many royal engagements.

She may or may not have a secret Instagram.

Princess Beatrice was tagged in a group photo that included Karlie Kloss at a birthday party in LA as @beayork. It's a private account, so there's no way to know for sure if it's hers. Her sister, Princess Eugenie, has a public Instagram account.

She had been living in St James's Palace with her sister Eugenie, but reportedly moved out when Eugenie got married.

According to The Daily Mail, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie lived together in St James's Palace in central London for 10 years. But apparently only full-time royals get to live on palace grounds for free. Their father, Prince Andrew, had reportedly been paying upwards of $26,000 per year in rent. Since Eugenie's wedding in 2018, Beatrice splits her time between London and New York City.

St James's Palace is one of many properties owned by the royal family.

She broke up with Uber executive Dave Clark after nearly 10 years and began dating businessman Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2018.

Beatrice and Clark dated for almost 10 years after Prince William introduced them at a birthday party, according to People. They split in 2016, and Clark got engaged to Lynn Anderson less than a year later, tying the knot in 2017.

Princess Beatrice began dating Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in September 2018 after Mozzi split from Dara Huang, his fiancée and the mother of his child. Mozzi has some royal lineage himself — his father is an Italian count.

The couple made their first public appearance in March 2019 and attended other events like the royal wedding of Ella Windsor.

Princess Beatrice got engaged to Mozzi in 2019 with a ring he designed worth an estimated $100,000.

Mozzi designed the 3.5-carat ring with tapered baguettes in collaboration with designer Shaun Leane.

The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony at Windsor Castle on July 17, 2020.

Their original wedding plans involved a ceremony at Chapel Royal in St James's Palace and a wedding reception at Buckingham Palace in May, but they had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead of a lavish royal wedding, they held a secret ceremony in The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor Castle attended by Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and close family members.

Beatrice borrowed a gown from the Queen that Norman Hartnell designed in the 1960s, and reworked it by adding triple organza sleeves and embroidered vintage diamantés.

Beatrice and Mozzi welcomed a baby girl on September 18.

"Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London," a statement released via Buckingham Palace said.

The baby is the Queen's 12th great-grandchild, and the fourth royal baby to be born this year.

Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Tindall, and Beatrice's sister, Princess Eugenie, both welcomed baby boys earlier this year, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed a baby girl over the summer.
