Princess Beatrice at Forget Me Not Children's Hospice in Huddersfield

She is expecting her first baby with Italian property developer husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi this autumn - yet Princess Beatrice still isn't putting her feet up.

Last week, the Queen's granddaughter, 33, visited the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice in Huddersfield, of which she is Patron, to mark a decade of its Russell House unit being built.

Sporting an elegant black frock teamed with a glamorous camel coat to showcase her blossoming baby bump, the royal looked in excellent spirits as she met with patients, staff and volunteers.

She completed her outfit with an eye-catching emerald headband and a recycled pair of black leather loafers decorated with gold stars.

Despite her growing baby bump, Beatrice grabbed a shovel and helped bury a time capsule to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

The time capsule included a letter the princess had written, a note from a Forget Me Not mother, a child’s handprint and some photos of Russell House.  

The royal also met with some of the hospice's families - including a very well-dressed baby boy, who sported a tiny bow tie, dungarees and a giant grin.

In a statement, Beatrice said: 'In the last 10 years, the charity has supported over 800 families – I am simply lost for words as to the difference that this support has made to so many lives.

'When people ask me why I became the Patron of this amazing charity, I only have to explain how much of an important part of the community Russell House and the charity has become.

'And how much of a momentous achievement it is for us to be stood here today celebrating 10 years of supporting that community.'  

Taking to Twitter to share some images from the occasion, Forget Me Not Children's Hospice said: 'We were absolutely delighted to welcome @yorkiebea to a special garden party last week to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Russell House.

'She met some of our families, supporters, staff and volunteers and buried a time capsule in our garden.'  

The royal tied the knot with Edo in September 2020 and the couple are expecting a child together later this year. 

Her baby boy or girl will be born 11th in line to the throne, and although their mother is a princess they will be plain Master or Miss Mozzi - and will also be a half-sibling to Edo's son, Wolfie.
