Last year, bookies placed odds on Eugenie and Jack announcing baby news.

At the time, a Ladbrokes spokesperson told The Sun: “It looks like the royals are getting broody.

“With Meghan’s first on the way and Kate’s odds of baby number four continuing to tumble, we’ve once again cut odds on Eugenie announcing a pregnancy.”

Meanwhile, another, for bookmakers.tv, told the paper: “The odds of Eugenie and Jack sharing some good news soon have taken another plunge with the latest betting definitely suggesting there could be an announcement around the corner.”
