"There is no truth to the story that there could be a split between the Prince of Wales and I over my daughters' participation as members of the royal family and any continued speculation is pointless".

Odds are 20/1 that Baby York could share the name George with his seven-year-old cousin, who is third in line for the throne.

Buckingham Palace has said in a statement that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first baby early in 2021.

"I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child", she wrote.

The post, which Eugenie shared with her 1.2 million followers has so far been liked more than 400,000 times.

A tribute to Eugenie's mother Sarah and the Queen could be expected for a girl, and perhaps Andrew after the Duke of York, and Philip after the Duke of Edinburgh, as middle names for a boy. Although Eugenie described an immediate connection, she also quickly questioned her future husband's fashion choices. Earlier today, she took to her social media account and confirmed that she and Jack are expecting their firstborn.

However, it's unlikely the baby will be given an official royal title.

Of course, the entire royal family is thrilled with the pregnancy announcement.

Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had delayed their royal wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic, before hosting an intimate secret ceremony in July.

The announcement comes after about two years of their marriage.

Eugenie's child will fit directly into the York family, meaning Princess Beatrice will be the baby's aunt and Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson will be the child's grandparents.

That said, the is another way the child could still get a title and that is only if the queen offers them one for the baby.

Eugenie and Jack's child will be 11th in the order of succession, which means the Queen's youngest son Prince Edward will slip down a place into 12th place.
