Buckingham Palace has confirmed Prince Andrew’s daughter Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank have announced they are expecting a baby in 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.”
On her own Instagram page, Eugenie shared two photos and added: “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021…” The pictures showed the happy couple hold up a pair of John Lewis bear slippers, while they happily smiled towards the camera in the second snap.
Eugenie’s new brother-in-law Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi was one of the first to comment underneath the expectant mother’s post. He added a series of pink heart emojis, while good friend and Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas gave the post a “like”.
Prince Charles and Camilla also sent their best wishes, writing on Instagram Stories: “Congratulations to Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank.” Princess Eugenie’s aunt Jane Ferguson commented: “So happy for you both,” and followed it with two purple heart emojis.
