PRINCESS EUGENIE’S royal baby is due to arrive in mid-February. Here’s how the new addition to the Royal Family could make their first public appearance at a key event this spring.

Princess Eugenie, 30, and husband Jack Brooksbank, 36, are preparing to become parents. Queen Elizabeth II’s grandaughter confirmed she pregnant last autumn and told fans her and Jack’s royal baby was due in “early 2021.” Earlier, this week a source close to the couple claimed Eugenie’s due date was just weeks away and that the baby was expected to arrive in “mid-February.”

The coronavirus pandemic means Eugenie’s royal baby is unlikely to be introduced to the world in the traditional manner.

Unlike Meghan Markle, 39, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 39, who had official photoshoots with their newborns, Eugenie’s baby is unlikely to meet the public straight away.

As the Princess of York is an avid Instagram user, many expect her to share the first photos of the baby on social media.

Eugenie’s baby may, however, be able to make a spectacular public debut if Trooping the Colour goes ahead this spring.

Trooping the Colour is the huge military parade held every year to mark the Queen’s official birthday.

The takes place in central London and usually happens on the second weekend of June.

This year Trooping the Colour is due to be held on June 12, just days after Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.

The Queen and extended Royal Family members traditionally gather on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to watch an RAF flyover together.

The sight of all the Windsors gathered on the balcony together makes Trooping the Colour one of the most iconic Royal Family events.

Eugenie and Jack could choose to bring their baby out with them on the balcony at Trooping the Colour to introduce them to the world fro the first.

Will Trooping the Colour happen this year?

While the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc with large scale events over the last 12 months there is hope Trooping the Colour will be able to go ahead this spring.

The Queen and Prince Philip have both received the Covid-19 vaccine and according to palace insiders, there are plans for the Queen to return to Buckingham Palace before the summer.

Trooping the Colour takes considerable planning and while it may not go ahead in its traditional format there is still expected to be some kind of official birthday celebrations.

While the Royal Family has been kept apart by the coronavirus crisis they are expected to reunite en masse this spring.

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, have not been back in Britain since last March but are due to return to the UK for Philip and the Queen’s birthday celebrations.

Other royals expected on the balcony include heir apparent Prince Charles, 72, Prince William, 38, his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and their three children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Prince Louis made his Trooping the Colour debut in 2019 and stole the show by waving to fans from the balcony.

This year Meghan and Harry’s son Archie Harrison could be among the young royals to make a balcony appearance.

Eugenie’s beloved sister Princess Beatrice, 32, is also expected to be there with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
