There’s nothing we love more than a royal baby announcement – and Princess Eugenie had us in awwwww over the way she first revealed that she and husband Jack Brooksbank were expecting, posting the sweetest photo of a pair of fuzzy baby slippers on social media last year.

“Jack and I are so excited for early 2021....,” the Princess posted on Instagram, along with a close-up of her wedding ring and the teddy bear slippers, and a second pic of herself with husband Jack looking blissfully happy.

The adorable baby footwear was from John Lewis, where they cost just £8!

The slippers, designed to “keep little paws toasty and warm”, are sadly sold out. If you love the cuddly toy look, though, John Lewis has other fuzzy animal slippers to choose from, including a grey teddy bear pair and pink cat slippers – we wonder if Princess Eugenie will pick up some more!

And if you’d love to have a pair of teddy bear slippers for an older child, Gap has a similar pair to Princess Eugenie's teddy bear slippers in their Baby Gap line, starting at size 5 and going up to size 12. The Baby Gap version is lined with fleece and has a rubber traction sole and rib-knit cuffs.

Princess Eugenie revealed that was expecting nearly two years after her beautiful royal wedding, held at St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle in October 2018.

The exciting royal baby announcement also came just days after Eugenie’s sister, Princess Beatrice, visited an exhibition of her wedding dress, a gorgeous vintage gown that she borrowed from her grandmother the Queen, as it went on display at Windsor Castle. Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a surprise royal ceremony in July 2018.
