Royal baby news – Princess Eugenie is expecting her second child

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie is expecting her second child.

Buckingham Palace confirmed that the princess and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, are to become parents again.

Soon afterwards, Eugenie took to Instagram to reveal ”We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer.”

The exact due date of the baby hasn’t been confirmed.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank already have a son, August, who will turn two shortly. He was seen kissing his mum’s tummy in a photo shared by the couple on Instagram as they announced their news.

The new baby will be thirteenth in line to the throne.

They will be a third grandchild for the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York and the thirteenth of the great grandchildren of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh.
