British Royal Family News: Princess Eugenie And Jack Brooksbank Welcome A New Baby
The couple marked the occasion with a photo of the baby’s hand and the following caption: “Her Royal Highness and child are both doing well.” Other Royals were quick to congratulate the couple and none more so than Queen Elizabeth II. In an official statement posted on the Queen’s Instagram, she sent her best regards and wished them well:
“Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021. The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.” The duo have been going strong since they met in 2018 and rumours quickly emerged that Eugenie might be pregnant. Sarah Ferguson hinted as much:
“Jack sells tequila for Casamigos, which we love. It makes me even more of a yummy mummy because I just drink the tequila when I go and sell it. What else can I tell you? No, [Eugenie’s] not pregnant! I’m just going through what the journalists say, and they’re all here, so I just thought I’d fill it in. [And] yes, I do live in Royal Lodge with my handsome Prince [Andrew], who is the best-looking prince of the whole darn lot, you know. There you go!”
And the news was made official a year later. Eugenie at the time posted the news on Instagram: “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021.” The announcement has capped off what has been a tough period for the family. It was only a couple of years ago that Eugenie’s father (The Duke of York) had to renounce his Royal duties after he was associated with Jeffrey Epstein.
Sources at the time spoke on how it impacted the family: “They believe their dad made a huge mistake in judgement ever being associated to Jeffrey Epstein. The girls are being really supportive of their dad and also understand that this is something that is going to change how he is able to perform his duties moving forward. They understand the forever consequences of it.”
With a new baby on the scene, there are plenty of positives to look forward too. If you enjoyed reading this article, then make sure you check out our other features on the Daily Soap Dish.
