Princess Eugenie announced the news that she is expecting her second child with her husband Jack Brooksbank yesterday.
The 31-year-old royal shared a sweet snap taken by Jack of their son August kissing her blossoming baby bump.
In the adorable snap, Eugenie is dressed in a cosy woolly hat and unbuttoned shirt as she beams down at August next to a field.
She captioned the post on Instagram: “We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer.”
Buckingham Palace confirmed the news too, saying: “The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.”
Any new addition to the royal family will mean that there will be some changes to the line of succession.
When Eugenie’s baby girl or boy is born they will become 13th in line for the throne, after August and Eugenie.
They will then push King Charles’ brother Edward (the Earl of Wessex) down to 14th, followed by his children.
The Queen’s sister Anne, the Princess Royal, will then become 17th in line to the throne. When she was born in 1950 she was third in line of succession.
Eugenie’s new baby will also mean changes for Princess Anne’s children and grandchildren too.
Peter Philips and his daughters Savannah and Isla will move to 18th, 19th and 20th.
Meanwhile, Anne’s daughter Zara Phillips will move off the top 20 into 21st in line to the throne.
Her children, Mia, Lena and Lucas will drop to 22nd, 23rd and 24th positions.
Zara and Mike Tindall’s two girls have benefited from The Succession to the Crown Act (2013) made before Princess Charlotte was born that states that girls will not be overtaken by their younger brothers in line for the throne.
This means that when their brother Lucas was born in 2021 he remained behind them on the list of who is next to become King or Queen.
Eugenie’s second child will be born later this year, the same year of King Charles’ coronation.
The baby will not have a royal title and will be addressed as simply Miss or Master.
Unlike her cousins, Eugenie is also pretty ‘normal’ and is one of the only members of her family who isn’t a ‘working royal’ – meaning she doesn’t get paid by the Sovereign Grant to show up at official engagements.
As a result Eugenie has a real-job as the associate director of a London art gallery called Hauser & Wirth.
