After the birth of every royal baby, the name of the baby becomes a topic of great discussion among the public.

A similar "informal discussion" about the baby's name takes place between the parents and the Queen, who has to give her blessing.

In the case of Princess Beatrice, who was born in 1988, the Queen was not pleased with her original name.

As a result, it took around two weeks for Prince Andrew and Fergie to formally announce her name, reported Mirror.

Fergie had wanted to name her daughter Princess Annabel but the Queen reportedly felt that the name was too "yuppie".

The Queen instead suggested the name Beatrice, drawing inspiration from the name of Queen Victoria's youngest daughter.

Beatrice's full name is Beatrice Elizabeth Mary with her middle names paying tribute to her grandmother as well as her great-grandmother. 

The delay in announcing the names of royal babies is quite common.

In the case of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, both their names were announced two days after their birth.

In Prince Louis' case, his name was announced a full four days after his birth.

However, by royal standards, four days is not a long time.

Princess Beatrice has been in a relationship with Italian businessman Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi for around a year now.

Even though the pair have not been together for very long, they have been frequently seen together in public.

It is unclear if there are any wedding bells on the horizon, but the couple seems happy and close. 

Royal correspondent for Vanity Fair, Katie Nicholl, said, "They are very happy and in love. Sources predict that an engagement may not be far off," reported Esquire.

It has also been reported that Princess Beatrice and her sister Eugenie will be attending the wedding of British songwriter and Prince Harry's ex, Ellie Goulding.

Ellie will be getting married to Eton and Harvard educated art-dealer Caspar Jopling in August.

Ellie was invited to perform at Prince William and Kate Middleton's reception in 2011.
