Despite mother Eugenie being a princess, because her husband, Jack Brooksbank, does not hold a title, neither will their child. However, the newborn will still be 11th in line to the throne.
The announcement comes months after Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, had to step back from his duties due to the Jeffery Epstein scandal. He recently returned to his duties, and since then, the family has also celebrated the wedding of Princess Beatrice, Eugenie’s elder sister.
