Last week, Princess Eugenie announced the happy news she is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank. The couple has been married for two years, and recently celebrated Eugenie’s sister Beatrice’s wedding.
Eugenie was also spotted in August visiting her grandmother the Queen in Scotland, where the monarch had returned to for her summer break.
