The Princess announced the arrival of her first child in early 2021 and the royal baby could be born during the lockdown
Eugenie of York pregnant with first child
Not yet born and already could be destined to write history: the first son of Eugenia of York could also be the first member of the royal family to be born in a period of lockdown.
The date of birth had not been revealed, but the couple had announced that they would become parents in early 2021, so it can be assumed that it arrives during the national blockade. Eugenia of York is married to Jack Brooksbank, with whom she married in October 2018. In September 2020, the official announcement of the pregnancy of the Princess, second child of Andrea and Sarah Ferguson, arrived.
The news was announced at the time by the official account of the Royal Family, with a snapshot of the couple on their wedding day, accompanied by the caption: "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are waiting for a child at the beginning of 2021. The Duke of York and Sarah, the Duchess of York, Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news. " This official announcement was followed by a very sweet image posted by Princess Eugenia on her Instagram profile in which she showed two baby shoes accompanied by the phrase: "Jack and I are so excited for the beginning of 2021" and then a photo of the couple smiling.
The news of a possible pregnancy had been circulating for some time, before official confirmation, especially at the end of the summer after new images of the Princess appeared as she arrived at the Balmoral estate showing curves that had aroused suspicion.
Now it seems that the couple could be close to celebrating the arrival of the first child, at least under the hypothesis that the birth is scheduled for the beginning of 2021. In this case it could be the first royal baby to be born during a lockdown, but not only. In fact, it could also take some time before the couple can introduce the other members of the Royal Family to the new arrival, as it is unlikely that they have seen each other in recent weeks. According to Express, the couple appears to have spent most of the time at their home in Kensington Palace grounds, except for a brief period before Christmas at Frogmore Cottage.
