Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are spending lockdown in Norfolk with their parents Prince William, 38, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, and are likely to have been excited by the news that they have a new royal cousin. Princess Eugenie, 30, gave birth to a son on Tuesday and her first child could become a new playmate for the Cambridge tots.
Princess Eugenie and Prince William are first cousins which makes their children second cousins.
When will George, Charlotte and Louis get to meet Eugenie’s baby?
Given the current national lockdown, it seems highly unlikely the Cambridge children will get to meet Eugenie’s baby before spring.
Eugenie is currently reported to be staying in Windsor while William and Kate are likely to stay put in Norfolk until lockdown is lifted.

Schools have remained closed under current restrictions but when they reopen William and Kate are expected to return to London so that George and Charlotte can go back to class at Thomas’s Battersea.
While Eugenie and Jack may keep a low-profile in the coming weeks as they settle into parenthood they could bring their son to several Royal Family events this spring.
Prince Philip is due to mark his 100th birthday on June 10 and is expected to celebrate with Royal Family members.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s birthday could be the first chance George, Charlotte and Louis get to meet Eugenie’s baby.
While Prince George is heir to the throne and he and his siblings are high up the line of succession, Eugenie’s son is 11th in line to the throne.
The Queen is not in the habit of presenting titles to non-senior members of the Firm and as Eugenie herself is not a working royal it seems likely she will want to raise her child as a private citizen.
An increasing number of royals have rejected titles for their children in recent years.
Despite being seventh in line to the throne, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decided against giving their son Archie Harrison a royal title following his birth on May 6, 2019.
