Last year, Princess Eugenie announced she and her husband Jack Brooksbank were expecting their first child in early 2021. The royal baby’s due date is thought to be fast approaching.
Speaking to Us Weekly, the Duchess of York spoke about what kind of mother she thinks Princess Eugenie will be.
She described her daughter as “incredibly empathetic”.
Sarah said: “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.
“Her work for the Anti-Slavery Collective is a commitment she steadfastly campaigns for, to give everyone the chance to have a voice.”
The Queen’s granddaughter co-founded the Anti-Slavery Collective with childhood friend Julia de Boinville in 2017.
The pair founded the charity after learning about the extent of modern slavery in the UK.

She continued: “Jack and Eugenie are certainly looking forward to sharing the new baby with the whole family.
“I have always been so close to my girls and it is such a joy to see them embarking on this next phase of their lives.
“We call ourselves the tripod, and it’s a real honor to see them grow.”
Princess Eugenie announced her pregnancy in September on social media.
Royal fans replied to Eugenie’s Instagram announcement post praising the news.
One social media user wrote: “We’re all so happy and excited for another royal baby we’re so delighted.”
While another wrote: “Congratulations to both you and Jack. Wishing you a beautiful pregnancy and hoping for a safe delivery in these unprecedented times.”
The new royal baby will be the Queen and Prince Philip’s ninth great-grandchild.
Sarah said she will be bringing out one children’s book each month for the next 12 months.
The Duchess added how she hopes “to create a lovely library for my grandchildren”.
