PRINCESS Eugenie has promised 2019 will be an “exciting” year, sparking hopes among fans another royal baby could soon be on the way.
Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew’s youngest daughter just ended a busy year during which she took on new work projects and got married to her fiancee Jack Brooksbank. And in an Instagram post celebrating the first anniversary of her engagement, the 28-year-old royal promised there is more to come in 2019. As she published a picture showing her and Jack hugging and looking at her stunning engagement ring, Princess Eugenie wrote: “#tbt [throwback Tuesday] to exactly this day last year – Jack and I announced our engagement.
“What a year it’s been since then and how exciting for 2019.”
The post was well received by royal fans and gathered more than 60,000 likes in just a few hours.
Among the hundreds of people who left a comment, many hinted this “exciting” 2019 may bring another royal baby alongside Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s, due in spring.
One social media user wrote: “Waiting for the baby announcement”
Another chimed in saying: “Your wedding was beautiful! (Now waiting on the baby announcement)”
And a third added: “Plans for a baby maybe, Your Royal Highness?”
Punters are confident Eugenie will announce a pregnancy at some point this year, with Ladbrokes making it odds on at 8/13.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s looking increasingly likely Eugenie will be the next royal to give birth after Meghan.”
Eugenie and Jack got married on October 12 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, the same church where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their wedding on May 19.
The ceremony was equally attended by A-listers and royals, with some 850 guests arriving to the small royal borough to celebrate the union.
Jack and Princess Eugenie had been dating for seven years before their wedding.
Princess Eugenie, ninth in line to the British throne, is a working royal who during the years demonstrated a great degree of independence from the Crown.
In 2017 she became the director at Hauser & Wirth art gallery and has been serving for years as ambassador for a number of charities, including Street Child.
But in 2018 she took upon herself new challenges, including heading to the United Nations’ headquarters in New York to discuss ending of modern slavery and designing reusable bottles and bags in support of Project Zero, which works for a plastic-free world.
