Will Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Have a Baby Soon?

The royal family has been overjoyed with baby news this week; Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a son named Archie Harrison. The whole world celebrated the baby’s arrival, and the photos of Queen Elizabeth meeting another great grandchild were priceless. But elsewhere in the royal world, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are celebrating seven blissful months of marriage. Will these royals have a baby soon?

Eugenie and Jack were married in October 2018

The princess first met her prince charming while on a family vacation to Switzerland in 2010. Jack is four years older than Eugenie, but the two got along well and things soon turned romantic. According to a family history, the two are actually very distant cousins, but of course, they are far too distant for it to matter. They made their relationship public in 2011, and Brooksbank proposed to Eugenie in Nicaragua in early 2018. The couple wed in a televised ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2018, the same place Harry and Meghan tied the knot.

Kate, Meghan, and Zara Tindall all have children of similar ages

Eugenie is a bit younger than her cousins, but many of them all have children of similar ages. Kate and Will have three kids who will grow up alongside Zara and Mike Tindall’s children. Kate’s youngest, Princes Louis, is only a year older than Meghan and Harry’s first born, Archie. (Meghan and Harry will likely have more kids.) All of the kids were born within roughly five years of one another, which means if Eugenie and Jack want their kids to grow up with the other young royals, they might want to think about starting a family soon.

Before Eugenie and Jack were married, her mother said they looked forward to having kids

Eugenie and Jack wed in fall 2018, but during the summer, Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, said the two were already excited about starting a family. According to Romper, the couple had babies on their radar before they wed, and they were looking forward to having their mother there to babysit. Sarah writes children’s books and raised Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, so she’s very clued in about taking care of kids, which makes the thought of parenting sound a bit easier.

Fans are eager to see the couple welcome a child — but the two haven’t set a timeline

Although the couple seems to want children at some point, it doesn’t look like they have any sort of timeline in place. Eugenie recently celebrated her 29th birthday, and it’s possible she wants to wait until her 30s to start a family. However, fans are definitely waiting for the couple to make a baby announcement. Eugenie posted a throwback photo with her sister a few weeks back, and people couldn’t help but think about Eugenie with her own children. “Can’t wait till we get a Royal Baby Brooksbank announcement,” the user wrote. “You’re my favourite royal couple.” The comment received more than 70 likes, but Eugenie and Jack haven’t specified any kind of timeline for having a baby. It’s possible they might even want the excitement surrounding Meghan and Harry’s little one to die down a bit before making an announcement themselves.
