Another Royal baby on the way!

Princess Eugenie has announced she is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank.

The Queen and Prince Philip's granddaughter shared the happy news this morning.

Eugenie, who is Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter, is 10th in line to the throne and her son or daughter will be 11th, knocking Prince Edward down to 12th.

The announcement came from the Royal Family's official twitter account this morning and read: "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021.

"The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are delighted with the news.

The tweet was soon followed with an Instagram post of a cute pair of booties and the caption: "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021...."

"Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother.

"Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy."

The couple tied the knot in a beautiful Royal Wedding in Windsor in 2018, attended by a number of celebrity guests including Kate Moss, Ellie Goulding and Robbie Williams.

They dated for seven years before finally getting married after meeting on slopes of luxury ski resort Verbier.

Jack popped the question while they were on holiday in Nicaragua, with Eugenie saying she was completely surprised.

Speaking in their engagement interview, she said: "Granny actually knew right at the beginning, she was one of the very few people at the beginning, we left her this weekend and had a lovely time and she was very happy, as was my grandfather."

It's been a busy year for the York sisters, with Princess Beatrice marrying her property developer fiance Edo Mapelli Mozzi in a secret wedding earlier this year.

Their original wedding plans had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus lockdown, having reportedly already been delayed after dad Andrew was embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

2019 was a difficult year for the family, with Andrew effectively being 'sacked' from his royal duties by the Queen after his car crash Newsnight interview.

The new royal baby will add to the growing group of little ones in the family, and will have Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Archie as playmates as he or she is growing up.

Despite being a Princess, Eugenie isn't a working royal like her more senior cousins the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, instead working as the director or the London art gallery Hauser & Wirth.

She and Jack live within the walls of Kensington Palace at Ivy Cottage, just a few doors up from Kate, William, George, Charlotte and Louis.

They are regulars at major Royal events, including Christmas in Sandringham and Trooping the Colour.
