Princess Eugenie might be waiting to have a baby for this heartbreaking reason.
Since Princess Eugenie tied the knot back in October, royal fans have been avidly on the lookout for an emerging baby bump.
The Queen’s granddaughter, who is tenth in line of succession to the throne, got married last autumn to businessman Jack Brooksbank.
The couple tied the knot in a lavish wedding just a few days before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they were expecting their first child, two-month-old Archie Harrison, who was christened just last week in the same chapel where both the royal couples’ nuptials took place.
But while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who also married last year, were keen to start a family, it seems that Princess Eugenie and her husband of nine months might wait a while before having a child of their own.
And it’s all to do with Eugenie’s older sister Princess Beatrice.
Beatrice, who is very close to her younger sister and acted as maid of honour at her wedding, is reportedly desperate to start a family of her own and so Eugenie is waiting to have kids as an act of support.
‘Beatrice is desperate to get married as soon as possible and is already trying to fall pregnant,’ a source told the Express.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to hear the pitter patter of another royal baby, as a royal source told The Sun that Princess Beatrice is serious with Italian property developer boyfriend Edo.
‘They hit it off instantly and have a real laugh together,’ said the source.
‘They’ve been on holiday together and Beatrice introduced him to Fergie and her dad.
‘Things are moving very quickly and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they got engaged within a short period of time.’
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home—so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
