Princess Beatrice showed off her growing baby bump as she left the Mayfair Private Members’ Club last evening.
The Queen’s granddaughter, 33, who is expecting her first child with Italian property developer husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi this autumn, looked effortlessly chic as she stepped out in central London.
At a fashionable display, Beatrice opted for a sophisticated burgundy velvet jacket, paired with a stylish pearl headband, as she was visiting The Arts Club.
Th Club, founded in 1863, counts the likes of Charles Dickens, Thomas Hughes and Wilkie Collins as past members and spends £2,500 a year for full membership.

Beatrice paired the statement piece with a black minidress and a pair of black leather loafers, which were embellished with gold stars.
Her face was brand new at the event and she completed her look with a tweed Chanel clutch bag and gold bracelet, while her hair was paired with a monochrome headband.
Beatrice tied the knot with Edo in September 2020 and the couple is expecting a child later this year.
Sarah – named after Beatrice’s mother Sarah Ferguson – is leading with Betfair as the bettor’s favorite, placing it at 8/1 if the little girl is a girl, while Florence at Ladbrokes is 4/1, probably Edo’s. A tribute to Italian roots.

If the new baby is a boy, even at 8/1, Philip is the most likely option, as Beatrice could pay tribute to her grandfather, who died earlier this year at the age of 99.
The moniker will also follow the tradition of the two latest royal great-grandchildren.
In February, Beatrice’s sister Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, while her cousin Zara and her husband Mike Tindall also welcomed a boy, Lucas Philip Tindall, earlier this year.
Like Lucas, August and Archie, the new baby will have no title as only the Emperor’s grandchildren are given the HRH monikers.
Her baby boy or girl would be born 11th in line to the throne, and although their mother is a princess, they would be Plain Master or Miss Mozzi – and would also be a half-brother and half-brother to Edo’s son, Wolfie.
The baby will be the second grandson to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s eleventh great-grandson – the baby being born soon after Sussex.

If the new baby is a boy, Philip is a possible option as Beatrice could pay tribute to her grandfather, who died earlier this year at the age of 99. Philip and the Queen are pictured at the couple’s wedding in January.

Beatrice, who is ninth in line to the throne, is the only princess in the British royal family to have married someone with children and gave birth to a stepchild.
Her property tycoon husband shares a young son, two-year-old Christopher ‘Wolfi’ Woolf, with his glamorous ex-fiance Dara Huang of three and a half years.
The only other stepparent in Queen Elizabeth II’s immediate family is her son Prince Charles, who became stepfather to Camilla Parker Bowles’ son Tom and daughter Laura when they married in 2005.
In turn, the Duchess of Cornwall has become stepmother to William and Harry and stepmother to Wills and Kate’s children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
