Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting their second child.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: «Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer.

«The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.»

The royal couple had their first child, a boy named August, in February 2021.

The Princess also shared the celebratory news on her Instagram,  with a photo of her son hugging her growing bump.

«We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,» the caption read.


Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank married in October 2018 at Windsor Castle in front of 850 guests.

For her wedding day, the Princess borrowed the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara from her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Their first child August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was named after Queen Victoria’s consort Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name. The child’s middle name Philip is in honour of Eugenie’s grandfather and August’s great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.

Princess Eugenie is the second child of The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, and sixth grandchild of the late Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. Eugenie is eleventh in the line of succession to the throne of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms.
