Princess Eugenie showed the first hint of her blossoming baby bump before announcing she was pregnant.

The 30 year old announced she is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank, 34, on Friday morning.

An announcement was made by the Royal family's official Twitter account, revealing that The Queen's granddaughter will give birth in the new year.

They posted to their 4.2million followers: "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 then took to her Instagram account to announce the news herself, telling her 1.2million followers: "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021…"

Her words were accompanied by an image of the couple holding onto a pair of baby shoes, and another of the expectant parents beaming at the camera.

Last Friday, Eugenie was seen strolling along the street in London's Notting Hill, donning a gorgeous floaty dress.

The navy blue number, which featured a pale blue floral print and stylish sheer sleeves, shielded Prince Andrew's daughter's body but, from some angles, gave a glimpse of her bump.

She teamed the look with a green print face mask and a pair of white trainers as she plugged her headphones in as she enjoyed her walk.

Following Eugenie's outing, a source told an Australian publication that she was expecting her first child.

They told New Idea: "The Queen and Prince Philip will be delighted to have yet another great grandchild and it would be the perfect present next year for Philip's 100th birthday.

"It's been a rotten year for Eugenie what with the Epstein scandal engulfing her father Prince Andrew so this is the best tonic for the whole family.

"For once, it will take the headlines away from Andrew and his association with Jeffrey Epstein.

"Eugenie's father-in-law, Jack Brooksbank's dad was also very ill in hospital with COVID-19 so again, his side of the family will be delighted with this good news.

"It wouldn't surprise me at all if Eugenie's older sister Beatrice has a baby soon as well, so we could have a double royal pregnancy boom!

"Fergie, of course, will be over the moon. The Queen has always said whatever her faults, Sarah has been a good mother and I'm sure she would be a wonderful grandmother as well," the insider continued.
