The American mother of Princess Beatrice’s stepson has voiced her relief that the six-year-old will be educated in Britain rather than America, where she fears he could have become yet another victim of a school shooting. 

Dara Huang was engaged to interior designer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 39, before he married the King’s niece Princess Beatrice, 34.

Miss Huang, an architect, voiced her gratitude that Christopher Woolf Mapelli Mozzi, or ‘Wolfie’ as he is known, is being educated in this country rather than her native America.

‘I’m glad my son doesn’t go to school in the USA,’ Dara declared online. ‘I can sleep at night knowing he won’t die at his desk tomorrow morning.’

Her son has been welcomed warmly into the Royal Family, joining the King and Queen on their walk to church at Sandringham on Christmas Day.

There have been more than 600 mass shootings in the US so far this year and at least 1,500 children killed in gun-related incidents.

Miss Huang, 39, was born and grew up in America, to where her maternal grandfather had emigrated from Taiwan. She was granted British citizenship earlier this year.

The architect, who was recently featured in Channel 4’s property programme Britain’s Most Expensive Houses, made the comments after returning to the US for Christmas while Wolfie was at the King’s Norfolk retreat with his father and stepmother.

‘Not to get all political here, but I went to a sports store in the US to buy tennis shoes today and couldn’t help but notice this huge gun section – post Xmas sale,’ Dara says.

‘So I walked up to the man and said, ‘What do I need to buy a gun home? Do I need a licence?’ And he said, ‘No, you can buy one right now and either take it in two days or take a $50 two-hour ‘conceal and carry course’ and bring it home right now.’ 

And I said, ‘OK, so no licence needed, medical records, history of felony?’ And he said, ‘Nope. You can keep it in your car or home, as you see fit.’ ‘

She adds: ‘Literally anybody can buy the most dangerous weapon known to man.’

While property tycoon Edoardo is descended from Italian nobility, he was born in London and is a British citizen. 

Edoardo was previously engaged for three-and-a-half years to the mother of his first child, Chinese-American Miss Huang, a highly-successful architect with her own design company whom he split from in 2018, a year before proposing to Princess Beatrice. 

Their son Christopher Woolf – who goes by Wolfie, was also born in the UK. 

They share custody of the six-year-old and Beatrice is said to have grown close to him, with Sarah Ferguson saying she considers him a grandson.

Dara is understood to remain on good terms with her ex and his new wife and Beatrice is a hands-on stepmother.

Due to the pandemic, Beatrice and Edoardo tied the knot on July 17, 2020 in a low-key ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, with the Queen and Prince Philip in attendance and Wolfie acting as best man.

Beatrice and Edoardo had their daughter Sienna Elizabeth in September last year. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s firstborn daughter Beatrice gave birth to baby girl Sienna weighing 6lbs 2oz at 11.42pm at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London.

Although her mother is a princess, Sienna, who is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild, will not have a royal title. 

Despite spending much of the year travelling the world for her business, Dara has spent the past few years in west London.

The mother-of-one said staying in London for the two months is ‘very different’ from her transatlantic lifestyle – which sees her travel between London, New York and Hong Kong.

The Harvard-educated architect who grew up in Florida, became engaged to Edo in 2017, after meeting in 2015.

She has an undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and transferred to the Ivy League school for her Masters in Architecture. 

Sharing her pride in a gushing Instagram post, Dara revealed how she arrived with a 'rack of student debt' and that she's 'proud to be British, American, and Taiwanese'

According to her LinkedIn page, she has won several awards and honours for her work including Property Week’s 40 under 40, BBC China’s 100 Women, three RIBA competition recognition, Property Week’s Resi-trailBlazer, Prestige 40 under 40, and Hong Kong Most Valuable Service award.
