Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice caused a bit of a stir when she revealed her new boyfriend, now fiance: Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

That said, there’s no evidence of ties between the current royal family and the Nazi party, and both Harry and the Queen apologised long ago for the costume-faux pas.

The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6, 2019. With the shocking news about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping down from their senior royal duties, their next step is still to be determined.
