Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have been some of the first members of the royal family to hear ofPrincess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank’s baby news, a royal expert has claimed.
Having welcomed their first child, August, back in February 2021,Buckingham Palace announced that the “delighted” couple were expecting a second child in an official statement that was released on Tuesday 24 January.
Meanwhile, 32 year old Eugenie later took to Instagram to post a snap of her little son August kissing her blossoming baby bump, exclaiming that she was so “excited” about the news, adding that she would be welcoming their second child this summer.
But speaking tothe Mirror, royal expert Ingrid Seward has claimed that Harry and Meghan would have been among the first individuals to hear of Eugenie’s happy news, thanks to their tight-knit relationship.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have been amongst the first to hear the news of Eugenie’s pregnancy,” she said.
“Meghan and Harry are close with Eugenie – and not only has she stayed with them in California, but they have been on holidays together before Harry’s marriage.”
The editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid also added that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could use King Charles’ Coronation in May as a way to see Eugenie.
“If the Sussexes come to the coronation in May, there will be an added incentive to see Eugenie as by then it is doubtful if she will want to travel herself,” she said.
Throughout the years, Eugenie’s close relationship with her cousin Harry, 38, has been well documented and she and Jack even moved into Harry’s former home Nottingham Cottage when the royal moved out.
And though Harry and Meghan moved to California back in 2020, Eugenie and Harry’s friendship seems to have remained strong despite the distance,with Eugenie making a surprise appearance in the recent Harry & Meghan docuseries.
Meanwhile, in February last year, Harry and Meghan were spotted sitting side by side as they watched the Super Bowl take place in Inglewood, California -something one royal expert claimed showed Eugenie “breaking ranks”.
Speaking to OK!, Duncan Larcombe said: “Eugenie is breaking ranks from the rest of the royals by being seen so publicly to endorse Harry and Meghan in their new life. It endorses what they said about the royals.
“No other member of the family would be seen dead anywhere near Harry and Meghan.”
