PRINCESS EUGENIE celebrated her royal baby news with fans in an adorable Instagram post. Here’s how the princess’s post mirrored a move made by Meghan Markle.
Princess Eugenie, 30, and husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting their first child. The couple marked their exciting news with fans on Instagram in a move that one royal expert has claimed mirrored a royal baby post made by Meghan Markle.
Eugenie and Jack delighted followers by sharing two sweet photos on Instagram.
The first snap showed the couple holding up a pair of teddybear baby slippers and the second was an adorable selfie.
The post was captioned: “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021”, followed by a baby emoji.
Royal expert and author Omid Scobie pointed out how Eugenie and Jack’s emotional post echoed one made by Meghan Markle soon after her son Archie Harrison’s birth on May 6, 2018.

To mark her first mother’s day with Archie, Meghan shared a photo of her cradling baby Archie’s feet on her and Prince Harry’s now-defunct Sussex Royal account.
The post made on May 12, 2019, read: “Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered.
“We honour and celebrate each and every one of you.
“Today is Mother’s Day in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan, and several countries across Europe.”

The post continued: “This is the first Mother’s Day for The Duchess of Sussex.”
Mr Scobie pointed out the parallels between Eugenie and Meghan’s posts while speaking on ABC royal podcast The HeirPod.
Discussing Eugenie’s post the expert said: “It was a picture of both of them holding a pair of little teddybear-shaped baby slippers.”
Guest Maggie Rulli interjected: “That was really sweet.”
Omid said: “Which was very cute.”
Maggie continued: “I have to say those little slippers did it all for me when I saw that pop up on Instagram.”
Omid went on: “Absolutely. It kind of reminded me of when we had one of those first pictures of Archie from the Sussexes on their Instagram account, of his little feet.”
Maggie said: “You’ve got to imagine how much pressure and planning goes into a baby announcement these days on Instagram for a member of the Royal Family.

She added: “It’s not your typical ‘let me just post a photo of my bump and call it a day.
“I’m sure they had a lot of people analysing what it was going to look like.”
Mr Scobie went on to suggest Eugenie could become the first royal to do a gender reveal on social media.
The expert said: “I am still waiting for the day when we have our first royal Tiktok account. It’s got to happen at some point.”
Guest Maggie Rulli interjected: “Oooh who would be the first? I hope it’s the Queen.”
Omid said: “Listen, if Eugenie is listening, that is the place to do a gender reveal – I am all for it.”
Maggie said: “I would watch that – I would definitely watch that.”
