The British Royal family is expanding as Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank announced that they are expecting their first child together.

Alongside a statement from Buckingham Palace, the soon-to-be-mother announced the great news in a personal way that differed from that of the royal pregnancies before hers.

Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy comes about two months after her older sister Princess Beatrice tied the knot with longtime beau.

PRINCESS EUGENIE’S PREGNANCY

The couple, who has been married for almost two years, delighted royal fans with the news via a post on Princess Eugenie’s Instagram page.

The Princess of York tugged at hearts with a lovely photo of her and Brooksbank holding hands as they clutched a cute pair of baby bear slippers from John Lewis.

The 30-year-old flaunted her sapphire engagement ring in the image and followed it up with another snap of them, smiling as they posed in a garden. The sweet post was simply captioned:

“Jack and I are so excited for early 2021.”

Following the vein of all royal milestones, Buckingham Palace formally announced the couple’s pregnancy via a statement on their social media platforms where they informed the public that the royal baby would arrive in 2021.

They also noted that Eugenie’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Brooksbank’s parents, alongside the Queen and Prince Philip, are thrilled for the couple.

DUCHESS MEGHAN’S PREGNANCY

Unfortunately, Prince Harry and Meghan didn’t get the chance to add a personal twist to their pregnancy announcement. The couple was on their royal tour in Australia when the news was shared. An official statement from Kensington Palace read:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.”

Their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, eventually joined the world on May 6, 2019, to the delight of royal fans.

DUCHESS KATE’S PREGNANCY

For Prince William and Kate Middleton, the news of all three pregnancies came weeks earlier than Eugenie and Meghan’s as Middleton was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness.

The news of Prince George’s pregnancy broke out on December 3, 2012, after the duchess was rushed to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London due to her condition.

PRINCESS DIANA AND QUEEN ELIZABETH II’S PREGNANCIES

While the younger generation of royals had the advantage of social media to announce their pregnancies, this wasn’t the case for older royals, as things were done in a more rigid way.

For Diana’s pregnancy with Prince William, the palace announced the press via a friendly statement that expressed the soon-to-be parents’ joy.

However, for Queen Elizabeth II, the official announcement for her pregnancy with Prince Charles was far from friendly. The palace simply notified the public that the Queen would make no public appearances until she delivers.

MEGHAN AND KATE ON PRINCESS BEATRICE’S WEDDING

Princess Eugenie’s pregnancy comes about two months after her older sister Princess Beatrice tied the knot with longtime beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a private ceremony.

Due to the pandemic, only the Queen and Prince Philip, alongside a few royal members, could attend the wedding, leaving Duchess Kate and Meghan absent. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop them from congratulating the couple in their own way.

While Kate opted for a public congratulatory via a heartwarming post on Kensington Palace’s Instagram story, Meghan and Prince Harry reportedly congratulated the couple privately.
