Watch: Princess Eugenie ‘so excited’ to be pregnant with second child
Princess Eugenie has announced she is pregnant with her second child.
Prince Andrew's daughter revealed on social media that she's expecting a baby "this summer" with husband Jack Brooksbank.
The couple, who wed in 2018 at Windsor Castle, welcomed a son, August, in February 2021.
In an announcement on Instagram, the 32-year-old royal shared a photo of August kissing her baby bump during a country walk.
"We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer," she captioned the image.
The picture – taken by her 36-year-old businessman husband – has already received more than 15,000 'likes', with many royal fans leaving messages of congratulations.
These included her older sister Princess Beatrice's husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi who commented with 'love heart' emojis.
Buckingham Palace confirmed the happy news that King Charles III's niece is expecting.
A statement read: "The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother."
The baby will become the 13th in line to the British throne after their older sibling and ahead of their grandfather's brother Prince Edward – and they will be referred to as a plain Master or Miss.
The princess – who is the daughter of the late Queen's son Prince Andrew and his former wife Sarah, Duchess of York – gave birth to her first child at the Portland Hospital in London.
This is where her cousin Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle welcomed their son Archie in May 2019.
She has remained close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and was featured in their recent Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan.
Her older sister Beatrice, 34, has one child – a daughter called Sienna, born in September 2021 – with her husband who she married in 2020.
During an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, which took place last week, the princess said that she was raising her son, almost two years old, to be an "activist" for climate change.
She revealed to Reuters that motherhood had "totally changed" her view on the environment and that "every decision" is now for him.
The late Queen's granddaughter explained that they try “as much as possible” to live plastic-free as a family but that it is a "battle".
She co-founded the charity The Anti-Slavery Collective in 2017 with her friend Julia de Boinville and currently works as Director of Hauser & Wirth art gallery.
