Princesses Eugenie showed off her baby bump again today as she was pictured with her sister Beatrice and their husbands, wearing matching outfits, at a West London restaurant.
The 33-year-old mother-of-one, who is expecting her second child in the coming months, beamed in a smock blue dress alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank and their two-year-old son August.
The family was joined by Beatrice, 34, her other half Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and their daughter Sienna, who is one. Beatrice paired a blue dress with a pair of beige sneakers.
The sisters enjoyed a birthday party at the Bluebird in Chelsea, days after former BBC presenter Emily Maitlis said she feared her infamous Newsnight interview with their father, Prince Andrew, may have ‘hurt’ them.
Jack and Edoardo both wore dark jeans, matching blue shirts with white T-shirts underneath, and even the same navy baseball caps.

The Duke of York’s disastrous discussion dealt with questions about his relationship with the late billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
He denied allegations that Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre was trafficked into having sex with him when she was 17.
Within two years of that interview, the Queen had stripped him of his military ties, royal patronage and use of his HRH title and settled a civil lawsuit brought by Mrs Giuffre for reportedly £12 million ($16.3 million).
Mrs Maitlis wrote in The Times that she and Andrew were would be “forever linked by the most random locations (Pizza Express, Woking) and the most imaginative excuses (an inability to sweat).”
But she equally struggled “in the aftermath” with how Prince Andrew’s revelations would affect his daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie.
“How could an interview designed to provide answers to vulnerable young women not end up hurting other vulnerable young women — his daughters — along the way?”

She added: “Honestly, I think we always suspected that the interview could define the prince. I think I was less prepared for the way it was going to define me too.”
Maitlis also questioned whether Prince Andrew had agreed to the interview for Beatrice’s sake ahead of her wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi several months later.
Last week, Beatrice and Eugenie were together at The Princess Royal pub in Notting Hill, where they were joined by A-list friends including James Blunt and Piers Morgan.
The Blunts are close friends with several members of the royal family.
Both James and Sofia were guests at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May 2018 and at Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October.
Both Beatrice and Eugenie are expected to attend King Charles’ coronation on Saturday.
However, their mother Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has not been invited to the event.
Royal commentator Tom Bower told MailOnline that Sarah had ruled herself out because of her previous “behavior”.
It came days after former BBC presenter Emily Maitlis said she feared her infamous Newsnight interview with their father Prince Andrew might have ‘hurt’ them
He added that her presence would “provoke critical comments that Charles does not need.”
And royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams praised the king’s “extremely wise” decision as it has “embarrassed the royal family for years.”
But the apparent decision has taken some royal viewers by surprise — with Meghan Markle’s friend Omid Scobie tweeting, “If true, this feels kind of cruel, doesn’t it?”
Since the censure, the Duchess was spotted in the passenger seat of a Range Rover driven by her ex-husband.
