Princess Eugenie will soon be a mom of two.
Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter took to Instagram Tuesday to announce that she and her husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting their second child.
Princess Eugenie shared a snap of her and Brooksbank’s 1-year-old son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank kissing her growing baby bump and wrapping his arms around her legs.
“We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,” she captioned the image, crediting her husband for the photo.
Princess Eugenie’s announcement received warm responses from her family members, friends as well as royal fans.
Her mom, the Duchess of York, commented that she’s in “granny heaven.”
“What wonderful news!! And as for this pic… It’s everything,” Natalie Pinkham wrote.
One royal fan commented, “Congratulations to Princess Eugenie, Jack and August!!”
“That is great news. Congratulations to you both and to young August on becoming a big brother,” another added.
Some online users said they began suspecting that Princess Eugenie was pregnant when she made an appearance at Kate Middleton‘s Christmas carol concert last month.
“Great news! Good to finally have it confirmed. Anyone seeing her at the carol concert back in December knew she was pregnant. Tying her jacket belt above her waist was a dead giveaway. I’m not the only one who suspected,” a royal fan wrote.
Buckingham Palace also released a statement confirming that Queen Elizabeth II‘s granddaughter is pregnant with her second child.
“The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother,” said Buckingham Palace in a statement to the BBC.
Princess Eugenie’s second child will be 13th in the line of succession to the British throne.
Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank welcomed their firstborn, August, at the exclusive Portland Hospital in London in February 2021.
August made his royal debut in June 2022 when he joined the royal family at Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant in London wearing a Union Jack sweater. Princess Eugenie was seen bouncing him on her knees as they sat in the royal box.
Last year, Princess Eugenie celebrated the arrival of her son and mourned the April 2021 death of her grandfather, Prince Philip, in a New Year’s Day post.
“Happy New Year to all. Goodbye 2021,” she wrote on Instagram. “A year that blessed us with our boy and saw our family grow with new additions but also a year that took some of our biggest and brightest lights. Forever in our hearts.”
