The palace revealed the news of the pregnancy in a statement: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.
“The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.”
The 30-year-old Princess also took to Instagram to share the pregnancy news by posting a picture of baby shoes and a second snap alongside her husband.
“Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….” she wrote.
Royal fans were delighted by the news and congratulated Eugenie on the announcement.
“Congratulations, what lovely news! Wishing Princess Eugenie and Mr. Brooksbank all the best,” wrote a follower.
“Oh, what fabulous news! Congratulations to the happy couple!” wrote another.
The Queen’s granddaughter — tenth in line to the throne — and Brooksbank were married in October 2019 in front of 800 guests at St. George’s Chapel. The new baby will be the Queen’s ninth great-grandchild, the first royal baby since Meghan Markle gave birth to son Archie in May 2019.
Eugenie and her husband haven’t been the only royals with babies on the brain. As OK! previously reported, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry, are looking to expand their family as well.
An insider told Us Weekly that the 39-year-old and her husband, 36, are “both really excited” about the “next phase of their family journey.” Added the source: “Seeing how happy and complete Harry is with Archie by his side is richly rewarding for [Meghan]. Meghan’s confident a second child will be perfectly manageable on a practical level and will bring them even more love and joy.
“Now that they’re comfortable in their new home and everything else in their lives is locked in and going well, Meghan’s told Harry it’s baby time,” the source revealed. “She’s ready to be a mom again and can’t wait to start the process!”
It looks like Great-Grandma Queen Elizabeth will have her hands full!
