A royal baby on the way! After the birth of little Archie, the British royal family eagerly awaited another pregnancy announcement. If many were waiting for Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton to be pregnant again, it is finally Princess Eugenie who is waiting for a happy event. “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are very happy to announce that they are expecting a baby at the beginning of 2021”, we could read on the official Twitter account of Elizabeth II. A happy news that brings joy to the relatives of Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank. Sarah Ferguson was particularly eager to congratulate her daughter, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A few months before the birth of this royal baby, there are many questions. What education will Princess Eugenie give to her first child? Will she follow in her mother’s footsteps?
Usually, as the rules of the Crown dictate, Queen Elizabeth II is the first to be informed of a birth to the British Royal Family. An official announcement is then placed on an easel placed outside Buckingham Palace. Thereafter, it is customary for the royal baby to be baptized at a private event three or four months after birth. But this tradition, Princess Eugenie could decide not to follow it. Notably to do like his parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew. Princess Beatrice’s sister was herself baptized at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham in December 1990 in an anything but private ceremony as she was the first royal baby to be baptized in public. She could therefore follow the path of the Duke and Duchess of York, and thus present her baby to the whole world, or that of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, who baptized their children during ultra private events.
Good news for the family
Regarding the education that the little one will receive, Princess Eugenie should be inspired by her own childhood. “Eugenie is such a fun person, but very caring too,” a friend of the couple assured People. “I think she will be a bohemian parent, much like her mom, while Jack will be calm.” Sarah Ferguson was also one of the first family members to publicly congratulate the future parents. “I’m so excited that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child,” she said in a statement. Delighted for both of them. And in my 60th year, I can’t wait to be a grandmother. Welcoming a new baby to the York family is going to be a moment of deep joy. ” In a few months, the British royal family will have good reason to celebrate.
