Harry and Meghan were among the first people to know about Princess Eugenie’s new baby, it has been claimed.
Ingrid Seward, a royal expert, and the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine spoke with the Mirror about the news of Eugenie's pregnancy with Jack Brooksbank.
She said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have been amongst the first to hear the news of Eugenie’s pregnancy.

"Meghan and Harry are close with Eugenie – and not only has she stayed with them in California, but they have been on holidays together before Harry’s marriage.
"If the Sussexes come to the coronation in May, there will be an added incentive to see Eugenie as by then it is doubtful if she will want to travel herself."
The news means Eugenie and Jack’s first child, August Philip Hawke, will be getting a younger sibling.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer.
"The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother."

It is not known whether the family are expecting a boy or a girl.
The statement from Buckingham Palace accompanied a post on Eugenie’s Instagram account which said: “We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer."
The new baby will be the 13th in line to the throne, meaning Prince Edward drops down in the line of succession.
The baby will be the 13th great-grandchild of the Queen and Prince Philip.
Writing in an emotional Instagram post, Sarah Ferguson, Eugenie’s mother, said: "You will be sharing puddles, Augie!
"Superb news, granny heaven… So deeply grateful."
The news of the pregnancy comes just under two years after the birth of August in February 2021.
