Princess Eugenie Steps Out for the First Time Since Announcing Her Pregnancy

Royal mom-to-be Princess Eugenie is hitting the town with a special companion: her new brother-in-law, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi!

On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter stepped out for the first time since announcing the news that she and husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting a baby.

Edoardo, who married the pregnant royal's older sister Princess Beatrice in July, and Eugenie grabbed lunch with another friend at Harry's Bar in London's Mayfair neighborhood.

The royal, 30, dressed for the fall weather, pairing a pleated black dress featuring a tied waist with tights and heeled boots under a long green coat. She also sported a patterned face mask, staying safe as the number of coronavirus cases in the U.K. is again on the rise.

To congratulate the newlyweds shortly after their scaled-down nuptials, Princess Eugenie wrote on Instagram, "What a complete joy and privilege to watch you, my beautiful big sister, walk down the aisle to dear Edo."
