The royal baby will be eleventh-in-line to the throne when he or she is born, which means that Eugenie's uncle Prince Edward will move down to twelfth place. It's unlikely that Eugenie and Jack's baby will have a royal title, as their children will take their rank from their father.

Meanwhile, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will welcome the arrival of their ninth great-grandchild. They are already grandparents to Savannah and Isla Phillips, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Mia and Lena Tindall, and Archie Harrison-Mountbatten-Windsor.
