Ever since Princess Eugenie got married, rumours have swirled around when she will start a family.

The Queen’s granddaughter, who is tenth in line to the British throne, tied the knot last year when she married husband Jack Brooksbank in a lavish Windsor ceremony.

And since then royal fans have been desperately awaiting another royal pregnancy announcement.

When no news came out by the spring time, royal followers were convinced that after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child Master Archie Harrison back in May an announcement from Princess Eugenie would be imminent, but nearly three months later there’s still been no word.

And now one very important has spoken out about when we might expect to hear an announcement.

Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson addressed the pregnancy rumours surrounding her youngest daughter when she gave a speech at a business gathering over the weekend.

Speaking at the house of American businessman Ernie Boch Jr, Sarah was filmed speaking about her daughter and her new son-in-law Jack.

‘Jack sells tequila for Casamigos, which we love,’ addressing the 33-year-old’s role as brand manager of George Clooney’s company Casamigos Tequila.

‘It makes me even more of a yummy mummy because I just drink the tequila when I go and sell it.’

She then continued to speak about the newlywed duo, saying: ‘What else can I tell you? No, she’s not pregnant!’

Princess Eugenie fuelled speculation over her possible pregnancy earlier this year, when she posted a snap to Instagram of her and Jack’s engagement photoshoot, writing: ‘What a year it’s been since then and how exciting for 2019.’

‘I hope this exciting 2019 means a baby is on the way!’ wrote one keen fan. Another added: ‘Now all there needs to be is a pregnancy announcement 😍’.

‘The odds of Eugenie and Jack sharing some good news soon have taken another plunge with the latest betting definitely suggesting there could be an announcement around the corner,’ a spokesperson for bookmakers.tv told The Sun.

‘And as always, royal watchers would love to see another royal baby, with some punters even suggesting the Queen may have three new grandchildren during 2019.’
