Princess Eugenie royal baby: 11 royal pregnancy rules Eugenie could break | Royal | News (Reports)


6.) Birth announcement displayed on an easel outside Buckingham Palace

The arrival of new royal babies is traditionally marked with a written announcement which is displayed on an easel outside Buckingham Palace.

As Eugenie’s child will be 11th in line to the throne and not considered an heir they may forgo this royal privilege.

7.) New parents pose for pictures with their baby

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William posed on the hospital steps with their newborns following the birth of all three of their children.

Meghan and Harry waited a few days before introducing Archie Harrison to the world but also took part in a formal photoshoot for the press.

Given Eugenie is a keen Instagram user she could choose to share her first baby pictures online instead.

8.) Baby wrapped in special blanket for its first appearance

Royal babies are traditionally wrapped in a blanket made by Nottingham-based knitwear company G.H. Hurt & Sons for their royal debut but Eugenie may choose not to follow this tradition.

The custom dates back to the Queen’s decision to wrap a baby Prince Charles in a G.H. Hurt & Sons blanket following his birth back in 1948.

Years later, Princess Diana did the same with Prince William and Prince Harry as did Prince William and Kate with their three children after that.

9.) Baby given a traditional royal name

There are a number of traditional names which have been passed down generations of the Windsor Family.

Royal babies usually take one of their names from a later royal relative.

For instance, Princess Eugenie’s full name is: Eugenie Victoria Helena.

It is thought Princess Eugenie was named after Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, who was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

Whether or not Eugenie choose to continue this custom with her child remains to be seen.

Prince Harry and Meghan broke away from it by giving Archie Harrison a modern, non-royal name.
