“Well, the thing is, is that I’ve written 48 children’s books and I’ve flown helicopters, Budgie, the helicopter, and Little Red. And so, I’m wanting to actually write a book about a football, now.

“Hence, I’m in the room with footballs and I’m going to write about a bouncy football. But anyway, I’m probably one of the best grannies ever. The best abuela ever because I think like a three-year-old.”

As for the type of King Charles will be, Sarah remarked: “I think that I think he has made many, many changes in his life for the environment, for what he stands for. And I think it’s very, very important that there are changes.

“I think he’s a very modern King. I think he fights very strongly for justice for young people. And I fully support the King’ wishes for a cleaner planet and for saving the environment. Not only that, his work with children and young adults, what he does is incredible.”

News of Eugenie’s second pregnancy was announced back in January.

"The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother," said the Palace in a statement.

Eugenie also took to her personal Instagram account to share the exciting news alongside an adorable photo that showed August kissing her growing bump. "We're so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer."

Sarah celebrated the news by sharing an adorable shot of her eldest grandchild August wearing a yellow raincoat as he jumped through puddles. "You will be sharing puddles, Augie! Superb news, Granny heaven…. So deeply grateful," she captioned the post.
