Princess Eugenie, 30, and husband Jack Brooksbank sent fans into a frenzy by announcing they are expecting a baby on Friday. The couple, who have been together for more than a decade, spoke out about the pregnancy on Instagram shortly after Buckingham Palace confirmed the happy news.
Eugenie and Jack confirmed their little one was due in “early 2021” in an adorable Instagram post.
The couple shared a sweet picture of Eugenie holding a pair of baby booties alongside the caption: “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021..” which was followed by a baby emoji.
Buckingham Palace also said Eugenie and Jack were “expecting a baby in early 2021” in an official statement shared on Twitter.
The Royal Family’s tweet 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 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.”
What is Eugenie’s due date?
Royal pregnancies are usually shrouded in secrecy and Princess Eugenie’s is likely to be no exception.
Her precise due date will not be confirmed by the Royal Family.
However, expectant parents are usually advised to wait until the 12-week scan to share their pregnancy news.
If Eugenie and Jack adhered to this practice it suggests the princess is around three months pregnant and will be due in late February or early March.
Prince Andrew was born on February 19, 1960, so the baby should prove to be a surprise present for his or her grandfather if born on that date.
While Princess Eugenie herself is born on March 23, 1990.
Or perhaps the baby could share a birthday with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who was born on January 9, 1982.

Royal baby names
There has already been a flurry of bets around what Eugenie and Jack could call their firstborn.
According to Betfair Alice and Arthur are currently joint favourites.
Betfair spokesperson Darren Hughes said: “Princess Eugenie this morning announced her first pregnancy, and as always with a royal baby announcement, speculation has turned to what she might name her child.
“Punters seem to think that a traditional royal name is on the cards, and Alice and Arthur lead the betting as 8/1 joint-favourites.
“Other names in the running for a girl include Celia at 10/1 and Augusta at 14/1, with Diana, after her late aunt, at odds of 20/1.
“Popular boys names in the betting include Henry at 10/1 and Thomas at 14/1, while Boris is an unpopular-looking 200/1.
“It appears unlikely, however, that the princess will name the child after her sibling, as Beatrice, which is currently at odds of 100/1.”
While Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Eugenie and Jack’s pregnancy announcement is the good news that royal fans have been desperate to hear all year.
“The early betting suggests they may opt for Arthur or Victoria, but we can’t rule out a slightly more left-field royal name.”
With the pitter patter of tiny feet expected in early 2021, the bookies say
Grace (6/1), James (6/1), Arabella (7/1), Alice (7/1), and Edward (7/1) follow next behind, along with Florence, Albert and Frederick all at 8/1.
Elizabeth is chalked up as a 10/1 shot with the firm, should Eugenie choose to honour her grandmother.
