Princess Beatrice made some appearances last week, and she looked quite far along. For some reason, I believed that her due date wasn’t quite here though. I thought she probably had another month to go. Apparently, she did check into the hospital last Friday and no one is really talking about it except as this very strange reference to Prince Andrew, who has been in Balmoral for a few weeks, hiding out and trying to avoid his legal quagmire.
Prince Andrew will have to quit his Balmoral hideaway if he wants to see his heavily pregnant daughter in hospital. Princess Beatrice, 33, was admitted on Friday. Husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, was believed to be with her.
Andrew has been in hiding for some time on the Queen’s 50,000-acre Scottish estate as lawyers try to serve Virginia Giuffre’s sex abuse lawsuit on him. But he is now likely to make a 500-mile dash to see his eldest daughter who is believed to be in a London hospital.
A Balmoral insider said: “Prince Andrew obviously hasn’t wanted to leave Balmoral when lawyers are still trying to serve the lawsuit papers but his daughter comes first and he will want to be there for her. He could end up staying on the estate and waiting for Beatrice to come to him once she’s given birth. But I’m sure he will want to go to her.”
Andrew has appeared to play a game of cat and mouse with the legal team acting for Ms Giuffre, formerly Roberts — moving between his home in Windsor and Balmoral to keep out of their way. Her lawyers said they had delivered papers notifying him about her US civil court sex case to his 30-room mansion at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.

This makes no sense. Andrew is not still actively dodging the process server, because the process server is no longer hunting him. The server delivered the lawsuit papers to his home nearly two weeks ago. There’s already been a court appearance about it, and a British high court has already ruled that Andrew was served properly. If Andrew is hiding out in Scotland, it’s because he’s a mess and he’s running away from his responsibilities in general. Which really sucks for Beatrice, because I bet she’d like to have her parents around at the moment. Edo is her husband, for sure, but Fergie and Andrew better show up when Bea gives birth, if she hasn’t already.
