Princess Eugenie could follow Sarah Ferguson and break key royal tradition with baby | Royal | News (Reports)


Eugenie, who is tenth in line to the throne, and Jack Brooksbank are expecting their first child imminently. Royal babies are usually christened at a private baptism in the months after their arrival.

But Eugenie could opt to break this royal tradition – just like her mother the Duchess of York did.

Sarah and Prince Andrew, who are also parents to Princess Beatrice, chose to have a public christening for Eugenie.

Their youngest daughter was baptised during a Sunday service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham in December 1990 in a break from royal tradition.

Eugenie’s tot is reportedly due this month.

“Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.”

Eugenie and Jack are currently staying with Sarah and Andrew at Royal Lodge in Windsor.

Sarah recently spoke out about how her youngest daughter will be a “great mother” ahead of the royal baby’s arrival.

The Duchess told Us Weekly: “Having not had my own mother around, I’ve always been determined to be a very present mother with my children, and I know Eugenie will be the same with hers.

“She is incredibly empathetic and will be a great mother.

“She is a very strong and determined person, always looking for the truth in all she does.”

In reference to Eugenie’s work for the Anti-Slavery Collective, which aims to raise awareness for modern slavery as a global epidemic, Sarah added: “Her work for the Anti-Slavery Collective is a commitment she steadfastly campaigns for, to give everyone the chance to have a voice.”
