Princess Eugenie was snapped with a large baby bump as she met a friend for lunch in central London yesterday.
Mother-of-one Eugenie looked stylish in a black maxi dress, topped with a regal-looking £225 Suki black velvet coat by Antra Designs.
The 33-year-old finished her outfit with a flat pair of white trainers and a pair of chic oversized shades. She pulled her long brown locks into a low, messy bun.
Spotting the princess in London, an onlooker noticed that she, and her friend with whom she was lunching had some trouble parking.
After finding a suitable spot to park, the duo went on to eat lunch together.

The lunch date follows a busy time for the Royal Family. Last weekend saw members of The Firm come together to celebrate the coronation of King Charles.
Celebrations included the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, and the coronation concert in Windsor on Sunday.
And this weekend is another busy one, with the Royal Windsor Horse Show taking place, a key date in the calendar for some of the family – many of whom are famously fond of horses.
Among the royals spotted at the Horse Show this weekend were the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, and their daughter Lady Louise Windsor.
Princess Eugenie announced in January that she’s expecting her second child in the summer.
The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York shared the news posting an adorable snap on Instagram showing two-year-old August kissing her stomach.
She wrote: ‘We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer.’
In addition, a statement released by Buckingham Palace said: ‘Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their second child this summer.

‘The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.’
Eugenie gave birth to her first son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, who is 13th-in-line to the throne, at London’s Portland Hospital in February 2021.
Eugenie and Jack, 36, began dating in 2011 and confirmed their relationship in an appearance at Royal Ascot that year.
When Eugenie left London to work for an auction house in New York in 2013, the pair maintained a long-distance relationship.
At the time, Jack told The Daily Mail: ‘We spend a lot of time on Skype. It’s great. We’re still very much together.’

Eugenie’s outing yesterday followed a very busy week for the Royal Family – including the coronation of King Charles last week
The royal’s outfit was the perfect combination of elegance and comfort, with her loose fitting maxi dress in classic black paired casually with her white trainers
In 2015 the princess returned to London where the pair grew ever closer – and they sparked engagement rumours the following year.
But it was not until January 2018 that Jack popped the question while the pair were away in Nicaragua.
Then in October that year. Eugenie announced her first pregnancy in a similar fashion, posting on Instagram at the same time the palace announced the news.
When he was born, August weighed 8lb 1oz and the couple broke with tradition by immediately sharing a black-and-white photo to Eugenie’s Instagram of them holding their newborn’s tiny hand.
She followed the post with three blue hearts after welcoming her son at the luxury private hospital where Meghan Markle also gave birth to her son, Archie.
