The baby will be the first grandchild for Eugenie’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and will be the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s ninth great-grandchild.
The statement by Buckingham Palace reads: ‘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.’
Eugenie and Jack, who spent lockdown at Fergie and Prince Andrew’s home on the Queen’s Windsor estate, were last seen on Tuesday night when they joined Princess Beatrice for a night out at private members’ club Annabel’s.

Eugenie concealed any hint of a baby bump with a long flowing black top worn under a loose coat that she wore untied at the waist.
The expectant mother was also recently seen strolling through London on 18 September. She looked radiant in a floaty summer dress that skimmed over her midriff and wore a bag slung across her body.
Princess Beatrice, who married property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in July, is no doubt excited to become an aunt for the first time.
The 32-year-old was seen shopping at baby shop The Little White Company earlier this month, perhaps picking up a present for her new niece or nephew.
