A new royal baby is on the way! Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank announced on January 24 that they are expecting. This will be the royal couple's second child, following son August Philip Hawke, who was born in 2021.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the happy news in a statement. "Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer," the palace said in the announcement. "The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother."

Princess Eugenie also took to her Instagram to share the news in a super sweet way. She shared a photo taken by Jack of herself and August, with the toddler's face buried in his mother's stomach. 

"We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer," Eugenie wrote alongside the photo. 

Eugenie and Jack's second child will be 13th in line for the throne, following behind Prince Edward and his children, and Princess Anne and her children and grandchildren. Their new child will also be Queen Elizabeth's thirteenth great-grandchild, and the first born after her death. 

Eugenie, whose parents are Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and Jack tied the knot on October 12, 2018, in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Then in February 2021, the couple announced the arrival of their first child, August, also with a sweet photo on Instagram. Since last year, the family splits their time between Portugal and the U.K. due to Jack's job with American entrepreneur Mike Meldman.
