Wondering If Princess Eugenie's Baby Will Get a Royal Title? It's Complicated

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank just announced that they’re expecting their first royal baby, dropping the news on Insta with a cute photo of some cozy-looking slippers that I’m going to need in an adult size ASAP.

So…what title will Eugenie’s baby be given? Apparently none—despite being 11th in line to the throne. While Eugenie has HRH (Her Royal Highness) status, Royal Editor Emily Nash notes, via Hello magazine, that, “As things stand, Princess Eugenie’s baby will not have a title, or use the HRH style, because these are passed down the male line and Jack does not have a title. The Queen could change this, but only by giving Jack a title of his own or changing the rules on inheriting titles by issuing Letters Patent.”

So, what will this baby be called? Much like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie, Eugenie’s baby will either go by “Master” or “Miss.”

Still pretty fancy, imo!
