Princess Eugenie vs Meghan Markle: Royal baby pictures compared by expert


Princess Eugenie, 30, and Jack Brooksbank, 35, welcomed their first child to the world on February 9 and on Saturday the new parents finally revealed their son’s name was August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. Eugenie is an avid Instagram-user and took to social media to make the special announcement and share three adorable new snaps of her and Jack with their baby boy.

Eugenie’s heart-melting Instagram post read: “We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

“Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express.

“We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.⁣

“By our wonderful midwife. Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy.”

According to a body language expert Eugenie’s first royal baby photos are markedly different to the more formal pictures of Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, with their son Archie Harrison that were taken shortly after his birth on May 6, 2019.

Having analysed both sets of photos, body language expert and author Judi James told Express.co.uk: “The emphatically casual and natural-looking setting for the first photos of Eugenie and Jack with their new baby August are in complete contrast to the first-glimpse photos we had of baby Archie with his parents Harry and Meghan.”

Meghan and Harry were still senior royals at the time of Archie’s birth and the “opulent” settings of the first photos in many ways reflected their high-ranking status.

Judi said: “Archie was displayed surrounded by all the opulence of a palace setting and the way Harry and Meghan arrived from a distance and walked towards the press suggested high status and a very royal approach to the birth of the son of a prince.”

Judi said: “Harry and Meghan might have dressed down slightly for their shoot but Harry was still in a suit and Meghan in a chic, belted dress.”

While Eugenie and Meghan’s baby photos contain some strong contrasts there are also similarities between them.

Judi said: “In terms of the body language of the two couples though there are some striking similarities and the way that Harry carried Archie to signal some very shared parental duties behind the scenes has been mirrored in the way that Jack is the one cradling August here.

“Jack’s relaxed-looking fingers suggest he is a slightly less tentative dad than Harry but the other break with royal tradition for both men is the way they wear openly besotted and excited facial expressions rather than standing to one side in a sharp suit, posing with a proud alpha puffed chest like several other royal fathers.”

According to the analyst, both couples appear to be very much in love and delighted by their bundles of joy.

Judi said: “Both poses seem to imply happy, loving couples that almost can’t wait to get back indoors again to coo over their perfect babies.

“While Meghan stood to one side gazing down at Archie’s face before placing a rather protective and loving hand on Harry’s back as they walked away, Eugenie has placed one hand on baby August while also showing her very simple wedding band to signal a similarly strong unit of three as Harry, Meghan and Archie.”

Last Sunday, Meghan and Harry confirmed they were expecting their second baby and shared a striking black and white photo of themselves relaxing under a tree.

Following the release of the photo that clearly showed Meghan’s baby bump, a Sussex spokesman confirmed: “Archie is going to be a big brother.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
