It has been two years since Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot in a lavish fairytale wedding – and now they have announced they are expecting their very first child together.
The wonderful news was confirmed in an official statement that was released via the palace.
The Queen and Prince Philip are said to be thrilled.
“Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021,” a spokesperson for the palace said.
“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.”
Mum-to-be Eugenie, who is estimated to be about four months pregnant, shared her own announcement on her social channels.
In the sweet pregnancy announcement post, she shared a photo of herself and her husband, plus a close-up of their hands holding a pair of adorable fluffy baby shoes.
“Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….” she captioned the snap.
In the past, Sarah Ferguson has dropped big hints she was getting into grandmother mode, admitting she'd make an “excellent” granny.
“I used to write children's books, and I am a child, I haven't grown up,” the 60-year-old explained while appraring on UK current affairs program The One Show.
Despite marrying into the royal family, Jack admitted that he didn't feel any newfound pressure when he officially entered the family.
“It's very special to be part of your family now, but it's just Jack and Euge I suppose,” Jack confessed to his fiancee during their engagement interview in January 2018.
Baby York will bump the Queen's youngest son Prince Edward down the pecking order one slot to sit at 11th in line to the British throne.
It's believed the child won't have an official royal title, unless the Queen decides to give Jack an earldom.
The impending royal baby will be Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's first grandchild and the Queen's ninth great-grandchild.
