There’s another royal baby on the way!

Princess Eugenie, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, announced today that she is expecting her second child come summer. The princess shared the news in a statement released by Buckingham Palace.

“Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. “The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.”

In a little less formal manner, the princess also shared the news on her Instagram with a photo of her son, August, hugging her growing bump. “We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,” she wrote.

Princess Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, rushed to the comments to share that she was in “Granny Heaven.” Ferguson shared a photo of her grandchild August playing in puddles to her own page with the caption, “You will be sharing puddles, Augie! Superb news, Granny heaven…. So deeply grateful.”

Eugenie’s new addition represents Queen Elizabeth’s 13th grandchild and will be 13th in line for the throne, following behind Prince Edward and his children and Princess Anne and her children and grandchildren.

The princess and her husband welcomed their son August Phillip Hawke Brooksbank, in February 2021. The couple wed at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in October 2018.

Our best to the princess on her pregnancy journey.
