Princess Eugenie has been giving advice to soon-to-be first time mum, Ellie Goulding.

She became a first-time mother in February, and Princess Eugenie is already helping her famous friends out with motherhood advice.

Eugenie - daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson - has been a constant source of guidance and support for long-term friend Ellie Goulding, who is expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling in just a matter of weeks.

Opening up about the advice Eugenie has shared, Ellie told The Telegraph, “She's been a great friend throughout this. We've talked a lot about pregnancy and she's been inspirational because she just takes everything in her stride."

The pair have been firm friends since meeting in 2011, when Ellie performed at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding. 

It is thought Eugenie introduced Ellie to her now-husband, Caspar.

It has been a whirlwind few months for Princess Eugenie after she gave birth to a son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, back in February - whose name is a tribute to Prince Philip.

The tot is Eugenie’s first child with husband Jack Brooksbank.

Eugenie, 31, said her heart is “full of love for this little human, words can’t express and that she is “enjoying” being mum to little August. 

It is thought the Queen’s grand-daughter is staying at The Royal Lodge with the Duke and Duchess of York, after the couple mysteriously moved out of Frogmore Cottage.

Earlier this year, it was claimed that Harry and Meghan – who are now living in America but have kept Frogmore Cottage as their UK base – were "delighted" to "open up their home" to Eugenie and Jack to "start their own family".

But six weeks later removal vans were spotted in the middle of the night and Princess Eugenie and Jack had left Frogmore Cottage before they’d even had time to settle in. 

It's no secret that Meghan was deeply unhappy at Frogmore Cottage as she became more and more scrutinised by the press during and after her pregnancy.

And some royal experts have alluded to the fact Eugenie may have wanted to avoid the same fate.

An insider told royal correspondent Katie Nicholl just how isolated Meghan felt during her time at Frogmore Cottage.

The insider revealed, “She was convinced there was a conspiracy against her and so she basically put herself in self-isolation when they moved to Frogmore.

“I think she felt like an outsider from the start.

“This wasn’t the life she was used to and she wanted out.”
