This will be the first baby for Princess Eugenie and her husband of nearly two years Jack Brooksbank, who tied the knot back in October 2018 in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The couple married in the same chapel, St George's Chapel, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had said their wedding vows just months prior to that, with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan also announcing their pregnancy with Archie days after Eugenie's nuptials.
