    In recent years, the millennial royals have dominated the spotlight – especially with their non-stop wedding and baby news.

    This month, it is all about Princess Eugenie, who announced to the world last Friday that she was expecting her first child with her husband Jack Brooksbank.

    And being a millennial – she did it with an Instagram post.

    Posting two photographs – one of her holding a gorgeous pair of baby bear booties and another of the couple grinning – Eugenie broke the news, captioning the snap: ‘Jack and I are so excited for early 2021’.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t hide their excitement for their relatives as they liked Princess Eugenie’s announcement from their official Instagram account.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex however were silent, prompting fans to question why they hadn’t also publicly celebrated the news.

    Thankfully, it looks like there’s no bad blood – it’s actually all down to the fact that the Sussexes are on a social media break, stepping away from their platforms in March. And knowing the millennial royals, we’re sure Harry and Meghan have been in touch to congratulate the couple.

    Announcing an official statement, Buckingham Palace confirmed the news.

    ‘Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021,’ the statement read. ‘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.’

    Huge congratulations to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank!
