Princess Beatrice is pregnant with her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. As the Daily Mail reported, Beatrice was admitted to a London hospital on September 17. The Mail and many other outlets speculate that Prince Andrew, her father, might want to be there to support her.
A source told Page Six, “Prince Andrew obviously hasn’t wanted to leave Balmoral when lawyers are still trying to serve the lawsuit papers but his daughter comes first and he will want to be there for her.” Whether Andrew will leave Balmoral and face the risk is yet to be determined. The same source added, “He could end up staying on the estate and waiting for Beatrice to come to him once she’s given birth. But I’m sure he will want to go to her.”
The Sun added that any attempted departure from the royal estate could mean that Andrew will face potential legal consequences. As a source said, “He knows he is far safer up at Balmoral on the Queen’s estate.”
