We have exciting news coming from across the pond this morning. Princess Eugenie is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank, so you know what that means...another royal baby is on the way!
On Sept. 25, the princess announced her pregnancy on Instagram, sharing a shot of the parents-to-be holding a tiny pair of teddy bear slippers as well as a photo of the couple. "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021," she captioned the post. The image also shows off Eugenie's flower-shaped pink diamond engagement ring, which was inspired by her mother's very own rock!
A congratulatory announcement came from Buckingham Palace around the same time this morning with a post that read: "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021."
The Royal Family also revealed that both Eugenie's parents, The Duke and Duchess of York; Jack's parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank; the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are "delighted with the news."
Next month, the soon-to-be-parents will celebrate their second wedding anniversary. The couple said "I do" on October 12, 2018 at St. George's Chapel in Windsor (the same venue as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding earlier that year!). The nuptials were unsurprisingly star-studded with the entire Royal Family in attendance, plus A-list guests like Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, Demi Moore, Naomi Campbell and James Blunt. Meaning, Princess Eugenie and Jack's future child is going to be showered by some pretty impressive people.
The royal baby will also join an elite group of cousins that includes Prince William and Kate Middleton's three children, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son, Archie, 16 months.
And with this royal baby news, one thing is for certain: The countdown to 2021 is on and we couldn't be happier for these royals!
