It would be another thing if for example, Wolfie's mother had died at his birth and he wouldn't have remembered her, but Wolfie has a loving mother and the word "mummy" is reserved for her.

That seems to be the case for their family. Princess Beatrice described herself and "my stepson" as part of "our family" in an article she recently authored.

Quote:
This year, I had the great honour to become a stepmother, and have had the most remarkable time going back over some of my most favourite stories at bedtime. Together, we had such a special time reading through all the entries for Oscars Book Prize 2020. [...]

My stepson has been, as many children have, home schooling this term. Helping him to engage with stories is a great journey to inspire imagination, creativity, independence and humour. If you have not yet read the Oi Frog books by Kes Grey and Jim Field, they have fast become our favourite.

We have all had to learn new ways to cope with the strangest of times. For our family, reading stories has been a great part of our journey to finding laughter and a little magic on the journey.

Previously, Sarah, Duchess of York, gave this statement in response to articles on Princess Eugenie expecting the Yorks' "first grandchild":

Quote:
A spokesman for the duchess told the Mail that while she was clearly overjoyed at Eugenie's news, she also wanted to stress that she and Andrew very much saw Beatrice's stepson, Wolfie, as a grandchild too.

'Wolfie is already a very much-loved member of their family and the duchess is very keen to stress that she sees Wolfie as their grandchild too,' they said.

To my knowledge, no one has claimed that Wolfie refers to his stepmother as "mummy". I don't think the words he uses to refer to his parents or his stepmother are public information.

Wolfie is part of Beatrice's family. She is his stepmother. She reportedly adores him. But he is not HER child with her husband and it's a bit disrespectful to Dara to imply that, imo.

If Beatrice has adopted Wolfie he is indeed hers. But that is not the case.

Edo, Beatrice and Wolfie are obviously a family already with the new baby being an addition.

More precisely: 'Babies in the British royal family' (so far none of them is royal )

I am trying to think of other prominent royal babies this year but can only think of prince Julian and princess Salote. We'll have to wait a bit longer for Spanish, Belgian, Dutch, Danish and Norwegian royal babies it seems - hoping for another Luxembourgish baby in the not too distant future! And outside of Europe we might see another Bhutan royal baby at some point (especially if we also include the king's (half)brothers and -sisters); not expecting one soon in Japan or Cambodia and hopefully neither in Thailand to name a few - Brunei or Malaysia with the many royal families seems a bit more likely.

2005 was probably the most royal baby year -in Europe- in decades (or ever?) (October 2005 being the most royal baby month!); with 2 heirs (Christian & Leonor) being born and 3 siblings of heirs (Alexia, Emmanuel, Sverre Magnus).

As it seems to depend on one's perspective we will have to agree to disagree. From my perspective, I would not see any implication regarding a stepchild's mother if his father and stepmother were to include him within "their own little one(s)", and would probably find it more reassuring in comparison to a stepparent who states that their stepchild is not "theirs".

The month with the biggest compactness of born "spares" was April 2007. First the birth of Princess Ariane of the Netherlands, then the birth of Princess Isabella of Denmark and last but not least the birth of Infanta Sofia of Spain.

The child IS part of THEIR family. He is Edo's son and Beatrice's stepson.

But he is not their child in common.

And yes..it depends on perspective and it's fine to disagree.

This is wonderful news. Such a beautiful couple and their wedding photos with the wonderfully decorated chapel were the most beautiful wedding photos in a long time. However, I am particularly pleased that she has her baby in the same year as her sister, so that the children can grow up together.

I smiled at the date of the announcement. The princess certainly didn’t make it up herself, but an attentive palace employee surely did.

I think this is mostly my perspective. She may well consider herself a bonus mum and love him just as much as his younger sibling but I think we shouldn't forget that he also has another mum in his life and that Bea hasn't adopted him.

Though it IS wonderful that she adores him and that Sarah and Andrew consider him another grandchild I feel a little uncomfortable in anything trying to rub Dara out of the picture.

They can consider the baby an addition to their family of three and it still be their first child together.

But I think it is a topic on which a lot of people will have different opinions and that's okay.

I am sure that is something all can agree on. The difference of opinion seems to be about whether certain descriptions of stepfamilies have exclusionary implications about the role of the stepchild's other parent, or on the other hand, exclusionary implications about the relationship between the stepchild and stepparent.

Congratulations How exciting! Also, I did not expect to see a pregnancy announcement so soon after the marriage, and Bea did look "slim" at the funeral. I'm betting a October baby

2005 really was the royal baby year! Prince Emmanuel, Prince Nicolas and Prince Aymeric, Prince Christian, Princess Alexia, Countess Luana, Prince Hashem, Prince Sverre Magnus, Leah Isadora Behn, Irene Urdangarin, Princess Leonor, Prince Dipangkorn, Carlos Morales.


2007 doesn't really fall behind either: James Viscount Severn, Princess Isabella, Princess Ariene, Prince Noah, Princess Lalla Khadija, Infanta Sofia, Prince Abdul Muntaqim, Sheikha Al Jalila, Princess Haalah bint Hashim, Princess Haya bint Hamzah, Amelia Morales.


2003 was also a royal baby year too: Princess Laetitia Maria, Princess Catharina-Amalia, Prince Moulay Hassan, Prince Gabriel, Maud Angelica Behn, Ana MarŪa Morales.

She looks at least 4 months...maybe more. I am thinking early October.

Her sister announced at four and a half months. I am guessing she is four months and the baby is due October 19!
