Princess Eugenie stepped out in London & she doesn’t look pregnant at all?

Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award presentations

Many people believe that Princess Eugenie is pregnant. The pregnancy rumors started a month ago, when she stepped out with the Queen over the Easter holiday and she seemed to be hiding her midsection behind a collection of oversized flower bouquets. The rumors picked up even more steam when Eugenie went dark for weeks during Archie Harrison’s birth, and many assumed she would announce a pregnancy shortly after the Sussexes’ headlines died down. Then Eugenie didn’t even go to Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding last weekend. All the signs were there!

Except Princess Eugenie stepped out yesterday and she looks very un-pregnant. She looks the same as always, really. Eugenie attended the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards at Buckingham Palace yesterday with her aunt and uncle, the Earl and Countess of Wessex. Eugenie wore a $1733 Peter Pilotto ombre dress with a waist-tie. If anything, Eugenie still appears to have a small waist and the small “bump” looks like a normal woman’s “I just ate lunch” stomach.

I feel like we were just hallucinating the whole “Eugenie is already preg!” thing, but it honestly didn’t come out of left field. It was on the British betting markets and everything, and people really did assume that she would be making an announcement any day now. Maybe she is preg and she just isn’t showing yet? I have no idea.

    I’m sorry, the dress is so bad that it makes me lose focus on if she is pregnant. It looks cheap and I know it wasn’t. Sad.

    • Kittycat says:

      The idea of the dress is good but it looks cheap.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I hate linings that stop mid way down.

      • olive says:

        @BayTampaBay yeah, the lining should be the full length of the dress, otherwise you’re forever pulling down the lining as it rides up

      • MsIam says:

        Exactly @BTB the lining not coming down further really messes with the look of the dress. It should have stopped closer to the hemline for just a bit of sheer, instead of stopping mid thigh. But I do like the pattern on the sheer overlay though, fwiw.

      • bonobochick says:

        The lining needed to go all the way down not half way. that ruins the look IMO

      • PrincessK says:

        The dress is nice but the lining is wrong….why wear expensive clothing and make such mistakes. If I was paying that money I would insist on everything being 100 per cent perfect. Just a little bit more thought or advice from someone who can give an honest opinion and she would look great. Doesn’t she look in the mirror?

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Dreadful dress, I think.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        It is not that the dress does not look good on her as the fit is almost perfect, it just due to the fugly material making for a fugly dress that would not look good on anyone.

    • minx says:

      Yeah, it looks very cheap. She needs to stand up straight.

    • Susan says:

      It looks like it is a bad home economics project. By an unskilled seamstress.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Awful, awful dress…for almost $2100 USD!! Where are the screams? While she is not *directly* funded, she gets her $$$$$ from Pedo Andy, who gets it from dear old mummy, who IS funded (and wasted/squirreled away HER $$$$$ that was intended for BP upkeep, so now taxpayers have to fund *that* again, too).

      *crickets*… riiiiight… of course.

  2. Erinn says:

    I think that’s a really cute dress. I like the gradient, but I also like how light it is – it seems to float along.

    Is she pregnant? Maybe. But I don’t like to speculate on that kind of thing. I think it’s more likely
    she’s loved up, doesn’t have to fit in a wedding dress anymore, and ate something for lunch.

  3. The Dot says:

    Bump watch creeps me out. I prefer to wait for people to announce their own pregnancies before going down a road of unnecessary speculation.

    • Kittycat says:


    • Becks1 says:

      I normally hate bump watch as well, but I don’t think the speculation about Eugenie is out of left field, considering how she appeared to be really obviously hiding her midsection around Easter time. I don’t remember any gossip about her being pregnant before that.

      • The Dot says:

        She looked paunchy and/or had flowers in front of her tum and so that makes it okay to speculate about her reproductive choices? Hell no.

    • Escondista says:

      I had so many miscarriages last year and am currently pregnant again and doing well.
      F people who just constantly want potentially hurtful information about someone’s private life.
      She doesn’t need to get immediately or ever pregnant if she doesn’t want to and she will let people know about her life on her time.

      • Enn says:

        I’m so sorry for your losses and agree with everything you said. Good wishes for a smooth pregnancy and delivery! 💕

      • Elizabeth1992 says:

        @ Econdista : Blessings on your pregnancy, my dear. Take care.

      • PrincessK says:

        Your point needs to be heard. Pressure is a terrible thing.

    • Himmiefan says:

      Yep, stop the watch. Women do more than make babies. When is their business.

    • Ceelie says:

      Or she could have lost a pregnancy… this is why bump watch needs to be gone.

    • Wilady says:

      Same. I have endometriosis and depending on what time of the month it is, I can easily look 4 months pregnant, and then debloat back to slim almost overnight. If my lower abdomen is bloated to heck and I had to go out with photographers, you would best bet I’d be holding flowers, bags, dogs, whatever I could find to hide it to avoid hearing how pregnant I look.

  4. Becks1 says:

    I actually really like her dress – and Sophie’s. Both look nice.

    I had the same reaction when I saw these pics – “wait, she doesn’t look pregnant at all.” If she was even slightly showing at Easter, and that was why she was hiding her midsection, then I feel like it would be a lot more obvious now, and they would announce.

    But maybe she wasn’t hiding her midsection at all and people just interpreted it that way. (if it wasn’t for those Easter pics, I wouldn’t even think she was pregnant, it just seemed obvious at that point.)

  5. Beli says:

    No idea on a pregnancy, but I love her dress and I’m really surprised that I love it.

  6. Jessica says:

    Gorgeous dress, lovely color palette and it fits her perfectly.

  7. Eliza says:

    With my first I just looked regular bloated until 6 months along, its why bump watch is unreliable. I didn’t tell work until almost 5 months and no one knew. The Yorks aren’t too private, if/ when she’s pregnant she will announce when ready.

  8. Meganbot2000 says:

    Maybe she’s pregnant and not showing.

    Maybe she had a miscarriage.

    Maybe gossiphounds are crazy and invent pregnancy rumours every single time a woman looks a bit poochy, or wears a loose dress.

    Maybe we should all climb out of a strange woman’s uterus.

    • Erinn says:

      And maybe she doesn’t want kids. Or maybe she has medical issues preventing her.

      I agree – I think it’s so important that this sort of thing gets stressed more and more. It’s not okay to ask about what someone is doing with their uterus unless they’ve initiated the conversation.

      And I say this all the time – but when it comes to family and friends it’s much nicer to ask “Do you think you’ll want kids someday?” than “when are you having kids?”. Simple changes in wording like that make SUCH a difference – it also opens up for the possibility of adoption. Not everyone who DOES want kids will carry their own.

      • Maria says:

        Well said. And she is only 29, still lots of time if she wants kids. It’s awful when people assume that you will have kids, when often you can’t or don’t want them. My DIL gets that all the time. She had 2 miscarriages and is now over 40. But people always ask her when she is planning to have kids.

      • Erinn says:

        Maria, I turn 29 on Saturday haha. And married for 5 years this summer, to a guy I’ve been with since high school. I have a constant onslaught of “when are you having a baby? You don’t have kids yet? You better hurry up! If you wait until you’re ‘ready’ you’ll never have them!”

        People can honestly be the worst. I’ve always wanted to reply to questions like that with something snotty, but I just don’t have it in me. I carry a gene mutation that increases risk of spontaneous miscarriage and deal with some chronic illnesses that make me really really unsure about the idea of carrying a baby. And it’s not so much a case of me not WANTING one. I’ve cried on the way home after my friend who I’d considered the other hold out told us she was pregnant. I’m SO happy for them, genuinely – but I also get super bummed out seeing everyone else who doesn’t have chronic illness to deal with getting to have babies. So it really stings when I have people harping on me about having to hurry up when I’m honestly not that old.

      • twoz says:

        Erinn, hope this goes in the right place: just commenting in solidarity on the chronic illness/genetically carried illnesses issue. I was in the same boat, plus looking older than my age had me getting ‘and when are you having children’ from *fifteen* to forty-five,
        Wishing you all the best whatever your decision is or wherever life takes you.

    • Lady Keller says:

      So true. I know it’s a gossip site and we are here to gossip but I’m getting tired of bump watch. There are a lot of maybes involved. If and when she announces a pregnancy I will be very happy for her. Until such time I wont speculate because she ate a big lunch, or she had bad bloating one month, or she wore an I’ll fitting dress.

  9. OriginalLala says:

    Bump watching skeeves me out – can we just leave her alone? I get bump watched all the time from family because they expect me to have a kid and it’s really annoying and intrusive.

  10. BayTampaBay says:

    The dress I like is the one worn by the Countess of Wessex. I would wear that dress in a minute but I would go with red shoes because I like a little edge or tacky to make things fun.

  11. Robinda says:

    I don’t know, I think it could still go either way. Her clothes are always kind of a distraction, even on a good day.

    On a secondary note, Edward and Sophie would make a delightful King and Queen. Yes, I realize that it would take an extinction level event to get them there, but they’re always so engaged and it never seems like they were dragged to events by threatening to cut off their allowance.

  12. TheHeat says:

    She could be pregnant. Some women don’t show until quite late in their pregnancies. I guess we will know for certain when (or if) she chooses to announce it.
    Bump watch is a bit disgusting to me. Watching a woman’s body change, for whatever reason, seems kinda wrong, imo.

  13. Joy says:

    What if, god forbid, they wait a few years before pushing out a baby ?

    • OriginalLala says:

      right? or if they don’t want any? people get wayy to involved in women’s uteruses….

  14. CharliePenn says:

    She has a long torso so her upper waist could stay small while her lower belly starts to expand. I still had a waistline pretty far through my pregnancy, even being a bigger woman, because I’m tall.
    But regardless, she looks healthy and happy and will surely announce her pregnancy if/when it happens and if/when it suits her.

  15. TeamAwesome says:

    I thought she looked fabulous, but I do wish the lining was the length of the dress.

  16. Chaine says:

    She’s not pregnant, she just has a fluffy tummy. That’s how she has always looked.

  17. Scandi says:

    As a woman who has miscarried four times, I can confirm that it IS possible to start to show and then loose the child. And it is horrible, when you are a 30 year old woman, who is expected to give birth to a child as soon as she gets married, but then it just won´t happen due to various reasons.

    Please, give rest to the bump focusing on famous women. You never know which battles these women are fighting in private.

    • Enn says:

      I’m sorry. I agree 100 percent that it’s callous and rude to speculate and question a woman who may or may not be pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or experiencing loss.

    • Maria says:

      I’m really sorry for your losses.

  18. Vanessa says:

    What if she miscarried? How awful for her to have to emerge and have people scrutinizing her.

  19. Originaltessa says:

    It took me a hot minute to get pregnant with my first and if people were babywatchingb me during that time period I would have been devastated.

  20. Enn says:

    Sophie’s dress was beautiful! Eugenie’s was not appropriate (sheer for an official event? No.) and if another royal had worn it there would be an uproar.

    Kate and Meghan: work with Sophie’s stylist!

    • Cherie says:

      I don’t know about inappropriate but agree the lining should have … well, lined the dress. I loath the half sheer look.
      The irony of “use Sophie’s’ stylist when she’s wearing the same nude/pinkish suede pumps Kate has been wearing everywhere.

  21. Mego says:

    Love the shoes too.

  22. MrsDeAndre says:

    If she is preggo and stepped out looking like she isn’t I’m going to laugh as if she’s thinking to herself “Oh Meghan gonna roll up in a maternity coat to my wedding like you can’t avoid dressing/calling attention to your after-lunch sized tummy? This is how you do it sis”. Obviously that’s not what she’s thinking but 😂 in my head.

  23. Emby says:

    Sophie looks perfect. IT’s possible to dress both conservatively and modern, for all the pink-pleat-double-breast defenders, yesterday.

  24. Sunnee says:

    Looks like it’s made of Mylar

  25. blinkers says:

    Love the fabric, hate the neckline of that dress. It looks like a fancy grandma’s pillows in her Florida home… and that’s a compliment!

  26. FluffyPrincess says:

    Why is the lining so short? For a dress that expensive it should have been fully lined!

    The York girls never get it quite right. They are always either soclose or OMG, what the hell?

    Eugenie’s wedding dress was pretty, but her second dress was so Cinderella. . .it seemed almost Disney princess. I wasn’t a big fan. The only think I remember about her wedding was. . .the emerald tiara…so that’s not saying much.

  27. Shannon says:

    First pregnancies often don’t start showing until further on. My first pregnancy, I wasn’t showing at all until almost my fifth month. So she could totally be pregnant here.

  28. Karen says:

    Needs pumps, the most exquisite pumps, because that’s a doing mother look and that girl is strong. High heels are silly, there is not need in this day and age, let’s see this one blossom, she has all the strength in her face and she’s a beauty, please stylists, let this one be beautifully real!
