The 30-year-old is due to give birth to her first child in February. She announced her pregnancy on her Instagram account in September 2020, writing: "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021." The post was accompanied by a photo showing the Princess and her husband Jack Brooksbank holding a pair of tiny bear slippers.

She added: "She is incredibly empathetic and will be a great mother.

"She is a very strong and determined person, always looking for the truth in all she does.
