It's lovely that that the christening took place in the same chapel that Beatrice and Edo were originally set to marry.

Why was Edoardo's "defunct" comital title used in the peerage announcement.
I believe his father uses the title socially in the UK.

The peerage article referred to Count Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. It did mention that he does not choose to use his comital title because he is a British citizen, but the author went into great detail about Edo's links with both the Italian and British aristocracy.

The article also refers to Edo's father as Count Alessandro (Alex) Mapelli Mozzi, which, I believe, is how he is known in some social circles in the UK.

I don't see it as a big deal. The title is not legally recognized in the UK, nor in the Italian Republic, but it is nonetheless a "legitimate" title in the sense that it was bestowed on Edo's paternal family by a valid Fons Honorum, namely the Sovereign of the Kingdom of Italy at the time. So, Alex is not presenting himself as something he is not under the rules of succession that were in place when the title was created. Edo himself does not use the title (socially or otherwise) and never claimed it as far as I know.

Here is one. Are there others, or were you referring to reports about the Sun's story?

Why do we need multiple sources to verify the christening of this child?

It's obvious that sooner or later she would be baptized. She is in the line of Succession.

Is there a particular reason that Peerage News is not to be trusted?

The SUN article is more about taking snide digs at Sienna's grandfather than it is about the baby's christening!

Personally, I do consider the Sun article to be an adequate source because, as you stated, this is expected news. But irish_royalist responded with the statement that there were multiple sources, thus my question.

No, not as far as I am aware. However, it is good practice to cite one's sources, and Peerage News has done so for many of its reports, albeit not this one. It can be a frustrating experience to read discussions on forums and social media where posters make statements without any reference to sources, as that often means one never knows whether that statement is credible or not. (Please note that I am not directing that to you, as you do provide sources, nor to Biri, as they linked to Peerage News as their source.)

Various different newspapers have reported on the christening, but they've all said that no photographs have been released.

This is the article in the Express:
https://www.express.co.uk/life-style...t-james-palace

There isn't really anything for the papers to say. No photos have been released, and the godparents haven't been named. Beatrice and Edo are obviously keen to stay low profile.

To be fair they are not alone within the family of having a private christening with very little info released.

Princess Beatriceís husband Edo liked the twitter post by Kensington Palace wishing Charlotte a happy birthday. He rarely likes tweets at all.

Something tells me that Princess Beatriceís little family and Williamís are quite close.

Edo often likes and sometimes comments on Cambridge Instagram posts.

From recent video clips Louis and Wolfie seemed to know each other so it's possible the families spend time together. I hope so, I'm close to some of my adult cousins and less so to others and I'm aware it's not always easy even without a lot of added pressure.

Tessy is indefatigable. ...on Instagram she is "Tessy de Nassau former HRH Princess de Lux" when she liked Charlotte's birthday post.

Interesting. Does he interact with social media posts from other royals (British or foreign) or royal-adjacent individuals?

Iíve seen some interaction with the Greeks and with James Middleton.

He and Beatrice were invited to the wedding of Prince Nikolaos and Nina Flohr due to Edo's friendship with the bride, Nina Flohr.

In addition to following James Middleton on IG, he is apparently friendly with Pippa and her husband as well.

Pippa and James were among the guests at Edo and Beatrice's engagement party at Chiltern Firehouse.

And somehow he and Beatrice merited an invitation the wedding of Prince Napoleon in Paris before their own wedding.

My belief is that Edoardo moved in very socially exalted circles even before he married into the BRF.

She does look nice again, no comparison with her former outfits before she met Edo. Looks like a happy relationship.

He follows and likes all the relevant BRF accounts, as you might expect among others. IIRC Sofie Louise Johansson (Cik Puan of Kelantan) liked a post of his a while ago which was interesting but I have no idea if they have ever met (she follows a few BRF related accounts).

It's clear Edo is very well connect both to UK and continental European aristocracy on all sides of his family.

They only referred to him as "Count" at the end of the article when explaining his family history. At the beginning of the article they simply used his name which puts emphasis on how he wishes to be addressed. It's not surprising that a sight that is Peerage News acknowledges titles and styles where one may apply socially.

Neither he nor his sister have ever used their titles socially (her wedding announcement is "Miss" and her father is "Count") which I do find interesting as others similarly born and raised in the UK with one or two British parents *do* use legally defunct titles.

I have no problem with his father using Count or Edo if he had used it previously but it probably did solve a small diplomatic headache that Bea wasn't going to start using Contessa as a lot of media speculated.

Yes I think Princess Beatrice has really blossomed since she married the gorgeous Edo. Sometimes it takes a real man to bring out the Best in a Woman, and vice versa.
