While attention is turning towards the upcoming royal wedding of Princess Eugenie in October, a rumour has surfaced suggesting that her older sister Princess Beatrice may be hiding some equally exciting news.
It has been speculated that the 29-year-old daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, is secretly pregnant, despite currently being single.
Beatrice is said to have told a friend who was quick to spill the beans, and the palace is apparently in a frenzy over it, according to New Idea magazine.
“The senior royal officials are incredibly anxious over the claims and are trying to get to the bottom of the whole scandal,” a source told the magazine.

Adding fuel to the fire are whispers that Beatrice has been avoiding alcohol at recent events, including the recent Annabel’s x Dior dinner where she appeared to be sticking to water.
Princess Beatrice, who has yet to comment on the wild report, is believed to be single after splitting from her boyfriend of 10 years, Dave Clark in 2016.
Earlier this year Women’s Day reported that the princess is ‘feeling the pressure to settle down’, especially now that her younger sister is due to walk down the aisle.
Perhaps this pressure has led her down a different path – and one very different to royal family procedures that go by the old-school tradition of marriage before kids.
