PRINCE Andrew finally saw his new granddaughter — after the baby name announcement was delayed until he left his Scottish bolthole.
Daughter Beatrice and property developer hubby Edo Mapelli Mozzi took baby Sienna to see him in Windsor on Friday almost two weeks after she was born.
Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson left him at Balmoral to dash to the London hospital where Beatrice gave birth.
But the duke remained on the 50,000-acre estate to dodge US lawyers trying to serve his sex abuse lawsuit.
It was finally served in America. Virginia Giuffre claims billionaire paedo Jeffrey Epstein, who died in jail, trafficked her for Andrew when she was 17 — and accuses him of “rape in the first degree”.
Andrew, 61, whose legal bill is being covered by the Queen, was seen grinning and waving as he left Balmoral on Thursday after three weeks in hiding.
Bea, 33, waited until he met the baby before announcing her name on social media.
A source said: “It is quite something that he had to wait almost two weeks before he met her.
