Although the baby is the first biological grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, they are step-grandparents to Wolfie, the son of Princess Beatrice’s husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi.

When Eugenie’s pregnancy was announced, a spokesman for the duchess told the Mail that while she was clearly overjoyed at Eugenie’s news, she also wanted to stress that she and Andrew very much saw Beatrice’s stepson, Wolfie, as a grandchild too.

‘Wolfie is already a very much-loved member of their family and the duchess is very keen to stress that she sees Wolfie as their grandchild too,’ they said. The three-year-old is Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s son by a previous relationship.

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.

Eugenie and Jack, spent lockdown at Fergie and Prince Andrew’s home on the Queen’s Windsor estate, but have recently spent time at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s former home, Frogmore cottage. 

Princess Eugenie’s baby WON’T have a royal title  

Princess Eugenie won’t accept a royal title for her baby if offered by the Queen because it is a ‘curse’ and she wants her child to have an ‘ordinary life’, a family friend told Vanity Fair in September. 

A family friend of the couple revealed several months ago that titles ‘don’t matter’ to the couple, who will raise the child at their home of Kensington Palace, and said they just want ‘a happy healthy child.’

Speaking to Vanity Fair‘s Katie Nicholl, the source revealed: ‘Eugenie knows that a title can be a curse as well as a blessing and she and Jack want their child to live an ordinary life and eventually work to earn a living.’ 

Sources also revealed the couple will choose an ‘ordinary’ name for their first born. 

According to the regulations of the House of Windsor, Eugenie’s baby will not automatically be entitled to the HRH styling, which only extends to grandchildren of the monarch. 

The source said even if the Queen offered a title as a gift, it was ‘not Eugenie or Jack’s desire; for their child to have a title. 

Despite having royal titles, Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice are not currently considered to be senior working royals, because they do not carry out duties full time on behalf of the Queen.
