Princess Eugenie drops subtle pregnancy hint

Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in October of last year inside St. George’s Chapel. The couple celebrated their first anniversary a few months back and the pregnancy rumors are now reaching a fever pitch.

Last week, Princess Eugenie and Jack enjoyed lunch with Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace, and photos from the event have officially sent fans into a frenzy.

The two looked thrilled to be having a Christmas lunch with Her Majesty (who wouldn’t), and their bright demeanor sparked rumors that they might be hiding some exciting news.

According to Express, Princess Eugenie and Jack later attended an engagement party for Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, though they evaded the cameras for that event. The fact that no photos emerged of the couple left fans wondering if Eugenie was avoiding pictures because of her baby bump.

Was Eugenie hiding her baby bump?

Buckingham Palace refused to comment on why Princess Eugenie and Jack were not photographed at the engagement party. It is widely believed that they attended the party, however, we just don’t know why the refused to take photos.

To add to the conspiracy, all of the photos released from the couple’s afternoon engagement only showed them from the shoulders up. There could be a totally normal explanation for this, but fans are convinced that Eugenie is hiding a growing baby bump.

Betting agencies in the U.K. have also increased the odds that Princess Eugenie will be making a baby announcement in the near future. She is now the most likely royal to have a baby in the coming year, followed closely by Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

There has also been a lot of talk about Kate having her fourth child with Prince William and Meghan having her second with Prince Harry in 2020. None of the rumors, of course, have been confirmed, but that has not stopped fans from speculating.

Was there another reason we didn’t see Princess Eugenie?

Although fans are convinced that Eugenie was hiding a baby bump, there may have been another reason why she was not photographed at the engagement party.

It is possible that Eugenie was helping Beatrice set things up before the event started, which would explain why she was not spotted arriving with the rest of the royal family.

Unfortunately, we won’t know for sure unless the royals release a statement, which is unlikely to happen. We don’t even know if Princess Eugenie was at the event, though inside sources say she wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Other royals who were spotted at the event include Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, and her brother, James Middleton.

When might Eugenie announce her pregnancy?

If the rumors are true, then Princess Eugenie will likely announce the pregnancy well before the spring. She and Jack are fully expected to play a big part in Beatrice’s wedding, which is believed to be scheduled for the spring.

The wedding will likely be a good time to see Eugenie’s baby bump, though an exact date for the ceremony has not been confirmed. Queen Elizabeth is expected to make the date official sometime next month.

While we did not get to see Princess Eugenie at Beatrice’s engagement party, their mother, Sarah Ferguson, was photographed at the event. Their father, Prince Andrew, however, did not make an appearance.

He reportedly made it to lunch with Queen Elizabeth, though we do not know why he failed to appear at his daughter’s engagement party.

Prince Andrew recently stepped away from his royal duties in light of his scandal with Jeffrey Epstein. Although he did not make the engagement, he is believed to be set to appear with the royal family, along with Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice at Sandringham for Christmas — which will probably stir up even more drama.
