The royal child will be the 13th in line to the British throne and will be addressed simply as Miss or Master.
Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank in 2018, and their son was born in February 2021.
“The family is overjoyed, and August is looking forward to being a big brother,” Buckingham Palace said.
Eugenie, 32, is the granddaughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II and the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York.
Eugenie announced the news with a family photo of her son, August, kissing her baby bump.
“We’re thrilled to announce that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,” she wrote on Instagram.
Her mother replied to a pregnancy announcement on Instagram with the words “Granny heaven” and a heart emoji.
August, who is almost two, was born at London’s prestigious Portland Hospital.
He appeared at the Platinum Jubilee pageant celebrations the previous year while sporting a Union Jack sweater and was bounced on Eugenie’s knee as they sat in the royal box.
The new child will be one place ahead of Prince Edward, the King’s youngest sibling, in the line of succession, and one place behind their older brother.
In September 2021, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie’s older sister, gave birth to a daughter named Sienna Elizabeth.
Her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who saw the pregnancy announcement on Instagram, replied with two heart emojis.

Eugenie does not receive funding from the Sovereign Grant because she is not a working royal.
The announcement of the baby follows a trying time for the royal family following the release of the Duke of Sussex’s candid memoir Spare.
Prince Andrew, the father of Eugenie, retired from the royal family in 2019 following a contentious Newsnight interview in which he discussed his friendship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
After an out-of-court settlement with Virginia Giuffre in the US, he later had his military titles removed, and there have been requests for him to give up his remaining titles.
