Princess Beatrice to announce pregnancy in December, bookies predict, and they reckon Meghan Markle’s next

PRINCESS Beatrice could be following in her younger sister Eugenie’s footsteps in announcing she is pregnant with her first child. 

Bookies have slashed odds on the eldest York sister announcing in December she is to have a baby with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. 

Princess Beatrice, 32, and her British property developer husband Edoardo, 37, tied the knot in a secret Covid-secure wedding in July with around 20 guests, including the Queen.

Bea and Edo said 'I do' surrounded by close family and friends in All Saints Chapel, Windsor Great Park after Covid-19 scuppered their original plans.

The Queen's granddaughter and millionaire Edo were due to get hitched at the Chapel Royal, at St James's Palace, in London, with 150 guests, in May.

Since the wedding, bookmakers had a 2020 baby announcement at 6/1 but have now significantly cut odds as low as ⅘. 

This would follow Princess Eugenie, 30, announcing in September that she is having a baby with wine merchant Jack Brooksbank, 34. 

The baby is expected to arrive in February, just four months before Prince Philip's 100th birthday.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank got married in a lavish ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in front of 850 A-list guests on October 12, 2018.

Bookmakers also expect Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, to announce their second pregnancy at the beginning of next year, with odds of 5/4.

The odds of Meghan and Harry, who are currently living in California with one-year-old Archie, announcing they are expecting a second child in 2021 as a whole are at ⅓. 

A spokesperson from said: “Beatrice and younger sister Eugenie have on numerous occasions spoken about having children at the same time, to ensure their babies have a similar bond to what the two sisters have.

“And of the latest odds are anything to go by, it seems certain that Beatrice and Edo will share some happy baby news before the end of the year. 

“And as always, Royal watchers would love to see another few royal babies, with some punters even suggesting the Queen may have three new grand-children during 2021, as odds plummet to 2/1.” 

Last year, Prince Harry revealed he wants more kids as he spoke with conservationist Jane Goodall in the Q&A.

He said: "I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question.

"I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…"

It was here that Dr Goodall jumped in – saying she hoped the parents would have "not too many" kids.

And Prince Harry replied: "Two, maximum!”

His plans for just two kids is in stark contrast to his brother Prince William, who has three kids with wife Kate Middleton – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

This comes as Harry and William are said to have "cut contact for two months" after Harry moved to the US with Meghan.
