Princess Eugenie May Follow Sarah Ferguson In Breaking MAJOR Royal Family Birth Tradition
Royal watchers were filled with joy when Princess and her husband Jack Brooksbank made the announcement that they are expecting their first baby in early 2021. Last Friday she posted a picture of her and Jack’s hands holding a pair of baby slippers and captioned it, “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021…”
In the week that’s followed here have been a lot of questions come up, like what is the baby’s gender and what name will the new parents choose for their firstborn. Royal fans are also curious to know if Eugenie breaks or follows a certain royal tradition.
Will Princess Eugenie Follow Sarah Ferguson In Breaking A Royal Birth Tradition?
What they are wondering is, how will Eugenie handle her baby’s baptism? She has the choice of a private or a public baptism for her little one.
Royal tradition dictates that a private baptism is held when an infant is about three or four months old. But Eugenie’s mom, Sarah Ferguson, broke that tradition. Princess Eugenie was born in 1990 and she was the first royal baby to have a public christening. In a special touch, loudspeakers blared the ceremony across the estate.
Will Eugenie’s baby be the second royal baby to have a public christening; perhaps broadcast across the land through bullhorns?

Eugenie was also the only one of the Queen’s grandchildren not to be baptized in the traditional Lily Font and after Eugenie, all of the rest of the royal christenings reverted back to form and were held in private.
Eugenie and her husband have a big decision to make—will she do as her own parents did or will she choose to follow royal tradition?
