Praising her daughter for her empathetic attitude, Fergie added: ‘She is a very strong and determined person, always looking for the truth in all she does.’

Meanwhile the grandmother-to-be and author said she is ‘looking forward’ to having storytime with the little-one. 

Last week,  Hello! Magazine revealed Princess Eugenie and Jack’s first child is due mid-February.  

The royal announced her pregnancy in a Instagram post in September, with a photo of herself and her husband, holding a pair of teddy bear slippers, with the caption ‘Jack and I are so excited for early 2021…’

The Queen is also expecting a tenth great-grandchild as her granddaughter as Zara Tindall, who is married to England Rugby pro Mike Tindall, is pregnant with her third child. 

Zara is already mother to Mia, who turned seven this week, and two-year-old Lena.

Eugenie has been spotted across London in sporting her baby bump in recent months.

She was pictured leaving her work at art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London’s Mayfair, in a Maje dress with a blue Zara coat just before Christmas.

Jack and Eugenie, who wed in October 2018, were living at the three-bedroom Ivy Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace near Prince William and Kate Middleton until last year. 

When Prince Harry moved to the US with wife Meghan Markle, he is believed to have handed the keys to Frogmore Cottage to his cousin Eugenie.

Earlier this month, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie claimed Eugenie and Jack have moved into her childhood home, the Royal Lodge in Windsor before Christmas after spending just six weeks at Harry and Meghan’s former home. 

He explained the couple spent the Christmas holiday at the Royal Lodge, where Eugenie and sister Beatrice, 32, grew up.

‘So I imagine that’s probably where they will remain up until much later in the year,’ he added.

Speaking in an episode of Darlton Harris’ podcast City Island last year, Sarah Ferguson confirmed that Jack and Eugenie had spent the first lockdown at the 21- acre, 30-room Windsor home she shares with ex-husband Prince Andrew.

‘During this lockdown period I’ve really loved spending more time with Eugenie and Jack,’ 

‘My daughter got married to Jack in, oh goodness, was it last October? No, it was October before, heavens!

‘And so, of course once she’s gone to get married, they live away. So, I haven’t seen her so much and so now it’s been a total joy to spend real quality time with her,’ she explained.  

The Royal Lodge is about five miles from Windsor Castle, where the Queen and Prince Philip have spent lockdown, while it’s also just a few miles from Frogmore Cottage.

It was understood that Eugenie and her cousin Harry reached a ‘private agreement’ over Frogmore Cottage though it is not known how long it will last.

At the time of the move, Harry and Meghan, who currently reside in an £11million mansion in California, said they were ‘delighted’ to ‘open up their home’ while they were in the United States. 

Frogmore Cottage was gifted to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, by the Queen ahead of their wedding in May 2018, and remains their UK residence. 

Meghan and Harry spent £2.4million from the Sovereign Grant on renovations on Frogmore Cottage – an outlay of public money which became controversial after they quit as working royals in March. However they have since paid the funds back.
