Royal Watchers Think Princess Eugenie Just Hinted She Is Pregnant With Her First Child
Royal watchers are convinced that Princess Eugenie is pregnant with her first child. Eugenie, Duchess of York, recently shared a sweet Mother’s Day post on social media, and her comments have sparked speculation that she might be expecting with her husband, Jack Brooksbank. What are the chances that Eugenie is pregnant?
Princess Eugenie celebrates Mother’s Day
Eugenie was among several members of the royal family to celebrate Mother’s Day by posting heartfelt notes on Instagram.
The Princess of York and her older sister, Princess Beatrice, are very close to their mother, Sarah Ferguson, and the siblings paid tribute to their mom with a special post on social media.
“Happy Mother’s Day!!” Eugenie shared on Instagram. “Today I want to celebrate my mumma but also all the amazing mothers out there.”
Princess Eugenie gave a shout-out to all of the moms across the UK, especially those who are not with their children as a precaution against the coronavirus outbreak. Eugenie praised these moms for “saving lives or keeping their distance to keep them and their children safe.”
She added that everyone should take some time to tell their family members how much they love them. The post also featured several photos of Eugenie with her mom and older sister and left royal watchers speculating about a possible pregnancy.
Is Eugenie expecting her first child?
Eugenie is no stranger to pregnancy talk. She tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank back in the fall of 2018 and has dealt with baby rumors ever since (something pretty common for a member of the royal family).
The pregnancy speculation heated up, however, following Eugenie’s Mother’s Day post. According to Express, fans suspected that Eugenie was talking about herself when she wrote, “to all the amazing mothers out there.”
While fans are convinced that Princess Eugenie was teasing a pregnancy with her wording, betting agencies in the UK now believe she will be the next member of the royal family to have a baby.
“It’s looking increasingly likely another royal baby will soon be on the way and the odds suggest it’s Eugenie who’ll be giving birth next,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati shared.
Eugenie and her husband, of course, have not commented on the pregnancy rumors. We have no idea if the couple plans on starting a family, but at the age of 30, it is probably only a matter of time before they get started.
Princess Eugenie turns 30
Aside from Mother’s Day, Eugenie also celebrated her 30th birthday this week. Unfortunately, the birthday was a very low-key affair in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Members of the royal family have canceled public engagements and are spending time in self-isolation as a precaution against the spread of the virus.
For Eugenie, this means spending her birthday at home with few guests. She has not said anything about her birthday plans, but there is little doubt that she is engaging in social distancing.
Princess Eugenie was born in 1990 and is currently 10th in line to the throne. She is the youngest child of Sarah and Prince Andrew, who stepped down from his royal duties a few months ago.
Andrew was forced to quit his royal duties in light of his controversial ties to Jeffrey Epstein. He has also been accused of sleeping with one of Epstein’s sex traffic victims when she was underage.
Queen Elizabeth wishes Eugenie a happy birthday
While Princess Eugenie’s birthday was not a grand affair, Queen Elizabeth sent her well wishes on social media. Taking to Instagram, Her Majesty congratulated Eugenie on her birthday and shared a sweet photo of the two during an event.
Eugenie is not a full-time member of the royal family, though she does appear at most of the big events. This includes things like Trooping the Colour, an engagement that could be canceled because of the pandemic.
Speaking of cancelations, Eugenie’s sister, Beatrice, has been forced to make big changes to her wedding. Beatrice was scheduled to tie the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at the end of May and is now looking at a significantly smaller ceremony.
Beatrice has also canceled her reception, which was supposed to take place inside the gardens at Buckingham Palace after the wedding. Although the ceremony will be trimmed down, Eugenie is fully expected to attend.
Princess Eugenie has not commented on the rumors about her pregnancy.
