Sarah, who recently become a grandmother for the second time after Princess Beatrice welcomed daughter Sienna Elizabeth, appeared in high spirits as she stepped out for the event. 

The royal wore her red tresses loose around her shoulders and accessorised with pearl earrings, while keeping her make-up look light with a touch of light bronze and blush. 

She was joined at the event by the likes of Elizabeth Hurley, Alesha Dixon and Giovanna Fletcher at the swanky event – hosted by Woman’s Hour presenter Anita Rani with Hello! Editor Rosie Nixon.  

Both Rosie and Anita served on the awards judging panel alongside Lorraine, Vick Hope and Kate Silverton.

The event comes after Sarah’s daughter Beatrice,  gave birth to a baby girl weighing 6lbs 2oz at 11.42pm on Saturday 18 September at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London.

On Friday, The Queen’s granddaughter, 33, and her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi posted an image of the newborn’s footprints while announcing they had decided to call her Sienna Elizabeth, in a touching tribute to the Queen.

But a family friend told Hello! the Italian name Sienna was chosen in honour of Sarah, explaining that Beatrice wanted to pick a title beginning with S and one which reflected the ‘golden rust colour of the Duchess’s hair, which the new baby shares’.  

Posting an image of the baby’s footprints on Instagram on Friday, Edoardo wrote: ‘Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us.

‘Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget. This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying….that with every child you grow a whole new heart.’

‘A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.’ 

Sienna is an Italian name, likely to have been chosen because of Edo’s roots, but Elizabeth is a touching tribute to Beatrice’s grandmother the Queen.  

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

Only grandchildren of the monarch through the male line are automatically entitled to the styling of HRH. 

This means she will be plain Miss Mapelli Mozzi. The Queen could bestow a title on her great-grandchild if desired, but it is unlikely to be asked for.
