Princess Eugenie is expecting her second child with husband Jack Brooksbank this summer, it was announced today.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s youngest daughter gave birth to their first son Augustus Philip Hawke Brooksbank, 13th in line to the throne, in February 2021 at London’s Portland Hospital.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are delighted to announce that they are expecting their second child this summer.
“The family is overjoyed and August is looking forward to being a big brother.”
Moments later, Eugene, 32, shared an adorable photo of her husband on Instagram with two-year-old Augustus kissing her belly, writing: ‘We’re so excited to announce the arrival of a new addition to our family this summer.’
Not long after, Fergie shared a photo of her granddaughter splashing in a puddle and wrote, “Grandma is in heaven.”
It has been revealed that Princess Eugenie is pregnant with her second child and will give birth in the summer (pictured with her son Augustus).
Although it is not known where the picture of the princess and Augustus was taken, it appears to have been taken in the last few weeks with frost on the ground.
In the post, the mother of one is smiling at her little son, who is enthusiastically snuggling into her womb.
It is not known whether she is expecting a boy or a girl.
36-year-old Eugene and Jack began dating in 2011 and confirmed their relationship at the Royal Ascot event that year.

The princess has had a busy few months attending royal events, including going to church at Sandringham at Christmas and attending Kate’s carol concert (along with husband Jack).
The couple were in a long-distance relationship when Eugene left London in 2013 to work for an auction house in New York.
At the time, Jack told The Daily Mail: “We spend a lot of time on Skype. It’s great. We are still together.”
In 2015, the princess returned to London, where the couple grew closer – sparking engagement rumors the following year.
But it wasn’t until January 2018 that Jack popped the question while the pair were in Nicaragua.
Not long after, Fergie took to Instagram to share a photo of her grandson Augustus splashing in puddles, writing, “Grandma is in heaven.”
He wrote that Augustus, whom he affectionately called Augie, would be “sharing ponds” and called it “great news.”
They are in October of that year. Evgeny announced her first pregnancy in the same way, posting on her Instagram page at the same time the palace announced the news.
August weighed 8lb 1oz when he was born, and the couple quickly broke tradition by sharing a black-and-white photo of Eugene holding their newborn’s tiny hand on Instagram.
He followed the post with three blue hearts after Meghan Markle welcomed her son at the luxury private hospital where she gave birth to her son Archie.

Eugenie went on to say that August’s name is a touching tribute to Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert, his birth name Franz Albert Augustus Carl Emanuel and Prince Philip, who died aged 99.
She kept August out of the limelight for his first two years, but delighted fans by sharing a video of her son dancing at his platinum anniversary celebration.
The Duchess of York, 61, previously spoke highly of Eugenie’s mothering skills in an interview with Hello magazine.
She said: “My children are phenomenal mothers. They were wonderful children, but now they are phenomenal mothers. Now I have two grandchildren in one year.”
Evgeny kept August out of the limelight for the first two years, but occasionally shared pictures of her raising her little one on Instagram.
The royal couple, who currently split their time between Portugal and the UK, occasionally share family photos on Eugenie’s Instagram account.
The princess has had a busy few months attending royal events, including visiting a church in Sandringham at Christmas and attending Kate’s carol concert.
The couple now split their time between the UK, where they rent out Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore Cottage home, and Portugal.
Last May, it was reported that they were spending some of their time at the Costa Terra Golf and Ocean Club, a luxury resort located an hour south of Lisbon on Portugal’s beautiful Atlantic coast.
It is believed that the reason for such a move was Jack’s work with George Clooney’s long-time business partner, property tycoon Mike Meldman.
The Duchess of York, 61, has previously praised Eugenie’s mothering skills during an interview, saying both her daughters are “phenomenal” mothers.
Eugene’s husband used to work for the Casamigos tequila brand, which the actor helped to found. It was sold to Diageo in 2017 for £550m. He now works for Meldman’s Discovery Land, which developed CostaTerra, since 2019.
This comes after Eugene wanted his son to be a climate change activist “from the age of two” and stopped using plastic at home.
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, the 32-year-old woman said that the birth of her son in August 2021 “completely changed” her view of the environment.
He said: “My son will be an activist from the age of two, in a couple of days.
“It’s all for them, right? Every decision we make now has to be about how August lives his life.
His comments were followed by interventions from his cousin Prince Harry, 38, who described becoming a father as “everything has changed” as he asked “what’s the point of bringing a new person into the world when they’re your age and what do you need?” is it burning?’

The Duke of York’s daughter told Reuters in a discussion with IMPACT and Humanity at Risk Basecamp in the Arctic that motherhood made her more concerned about communities vulnerable to climate change.
Speaking to Reuters editor-in-chief Axel Threlfall and Gail Whiteman, founder of Arctic Humanity, Eugene said: “My son will be an activist from the age of two, which will be in a few days. So he, everything is for them.
“I spoke to the UN Special Envoy for Oceans, Peter Thomson, and he just told me he was doing it for my grandchildren. And that was it.
“Every decision we make now has to be about August, what he can look at and what he can do and how he lives his life.
“But I also think as a mother, you suddenly, completely change, your hormones change, everything changes.
In an interview with Reuters IMPACT and the Arctic Humanity at Risk Basecamp, Eugene said it was a “war” to educate his son about environmental protection.
He also warned about the impact of climate change on vulnerable communities in an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
“Now I’m scared of flying and things like that and I never would have been before.”
Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter says she has changed her view of the world since becoming a mother and that concerns about climate change have affected her life.
She said: “We don’t have plastic at home, we try to avoid using plastic as much as possible and I’m trying to teach him that. But this is war.’
But the princess also spoke about her hopes for the future of the environment, saying: “I like the glass half full.”
Eugene added: “I’d like to be, but sometimes facts and figures and sometimes dinner gives you that feeling.”
He also warned of the impact of the changing environment on vulnerable communities, adding: “Modern slavery and human trafficking is a really big problem around the world.
“There are 49 million people in slavery today, and we know that when the climate is vulnerable, its most vulnerable people are affected.
“And we see more and more crises, people are vulnerable and in dire straits.
“So the climate is really closely related to it.”
