You can be sure there’s plenty of excitement in the Palace as they prep the arrival of a new little royal, the ninth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, and the 11th in line to the throne.

Eugenie and Brooksbank wed at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in October 2018. It was at their wedding that Prince Harry and Meghan shared the news with their family that the duchess was pregnant.

As for the new arrival, it’s believed the little baby will be given no royal titles as he or she will be born down a female line of the royal family, but as always, the Queen has the power to intervene if she wishes to do so.

A massive congratulations to the pair, such exciting news!
