Is Princess Eugenie Pregnant With Her First Baby Months After Marrying Jack Brooksbank?

Princess Eugenie is facing pregnancy rumors months after tying the knot with Jack Brooksbank. Eugenie recently appeared in public wearing a loose-fitting dress, which of course immediately sparked speculation that she is expecting her first child. But is Eugenie really getting ready to start a family?

Princess Eugenie sparks pregnancy talk

The pregnancy rumors kicked into high gear after Eugenie was spotted exiting a restaurant a week ago. The Duke of York’s daughter rocked a flowing gown for the outing, and royal watchers suspected that she might be hiding something underneath. It didn’t help that Eugenie also put a hand on her stomach, which some thought was a clear sign that she was rubbing her baby bump.

Wearing a loose-fitting dress in public by no means indicates you are pregnant, but this would not be the first time a member of the royal family pulled off this classic trick. According to Cosmopolitan, Meghan Markle did the same thing during an appearance in Australia, days before she announced that she was expecting. That does not mean Eugenie is pregnant with her first, but the timing does add up.

Is Princess Eugenie expecting?

It has already been seven months since Eugenie and Brooksbank exchanged vows, giving them plenty of time to get a bun in the oven. For comparison, Markle confirmed her pregnancy with Archie only five months after their wedding. If Eugenie is pregnant with her first, it will probably be only a matter of time before she ends the speculation and comes cleans on social media.

That said, there is a lot of baby fever in the air following Markle’s birth last month. Everyone is looking for the next royal pregnancy, and this probably won’t be the last time we hear about Eugenie’s baby bump.

Even bookies in the UK are betting that Princess Eugenie makes an announcement in the near future, which is a good indication that something is going on behind the scenes. Of course, we don’t even know if Eugenie wants to start a family right away, and there is a possibility that she wants to enjoy marriage for a few years before she starts having children.

Fans react to pregnancy news

Fans were very positive about Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy rumors. In fact, many royal watchers took to social media in the wake of the speculation to express their excitement about another royal joining the family.

Given how close Eugenie is to Prince Harry and Markle, many believe she is looking to follow in their footsteps. After all, Eugenie held her wedding the same venue as Markle and Harry, with whom she has developed a strong bond over the years.

If Eugenie confirms the pregnancy rumors, fans are definitely going to lose it. The world waited a long time for Markle to have her first child with Harry, and now that baby Archie is finally here,  fans are already itching for another pregnancy. Even if Princess Eugenie plans to wait, it seems like it is only a matter of time before she becomes a mother. All we can do is hope that the baby news comes sooner rather than later.

Will Eugenie follow royal tradition?

There are plenty of examples of members of the royal family getting pregnant in the first year of marriage. Aside from Harry and Markle, for example, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip announced their pregnancy three months after their wedding ceremony. Elizabeth ended up have four children with Philip, though there are significant age gaps between her children. 

There is a chance, of course, that Princess Eugenie does not follow tradition and waits to have children. Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, waited beyond the year mark to have his first child with Ferguson. Eugenie could easily follow in her father’s footsteps and wait a bit longer before she starts a family of her own.

Time will tell when Eugenie plans to start having children. The royal family has yet to address the pregnancy rumors, though more information will likely be released as we learn more about the situation.
