Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have some exciting news — she's pregnant!
Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter announced that she is expecting a baby in a statement released by Buckingham Palace. This will be the couple's second child, joining son August Philip Hawke, who was born in February 2021.
"Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer," the palace said in the announcement. "The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother."
Princess Eugenie, 32, also shared the news in a modern way — on her Instagram page! She shared a photo taken by Jack, in which August buries his face into his mother and wraps his arms around her legs.
Eugenie captioned the sweet snap, "We're so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer."
Princess Eugenie and Jack's second child will be the first of Queen Elizabeth's great-grandchildren born following her death in September. The new addition will be 13th in the line of succession to the British throne.
Princess Eugenie and Jack first met during a 2010 ski trip in Verbier, Switzerland. Eugenie said during their engagement interview that it was "love at first sight" — and Jack agreed.
Jack proposed to Princess Eugenie during a January 2018 vacation to Nicaragua.
"The lake was so beautiful. The light was just a special light I had never seen," the royal said. "I actually said, 'This is an incredible moment,' and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years. I was over the moon."
The couple tied the knot on Oct. 12, 2018, in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
