Discussing her preparations for welcoming her first child, Ellie told the publication that singer Katy and royal Eugenie have been wonderful sources of information.
Speaking about Eugenie, who she met at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011, the mum-to-be said: ‘She’s been a great friend throughout this.
‘We’ve talked a lot about pregnancy and she’s been inspirational because she just takes everything in her stride.’

While Katy Perry’s first child with beau Orlando Bloom, little girl Daisy Dove, was born last summer.
Ellie and Katy are good friends, with the Firework singer attending Ellie’s nuptials when she married Caspar in York in 2019.
Last year, Ellie revealed that the only female artist she is close with is her good pal Katy, as she usually feels like the ‘odd one out’.
The Love Me Like You Do hitmaker explained that she struggles to bond with other singers of the same sex and has ‘never felt like she fits in’.

In a candid interview with The Sunday Mirror, Ellie spoke about her friendships and praised American star Katy, 35, for giving her great advice
Ellie told the publication: ‘I’ve never felt like I fit in with any female artists, which is really strange because I love women so much.
‘I follow female artists on social media and I try to be involved but I always feel like the odd one out. I don’t know why.
‘If I really need to talk to a female artist who has been through everything, I’m lucky enough to be able to ask Katy [Perry] for advice. And she is incredible at advice.’

The songstress admitted she covered her growing bump with her husband’s coat as she chatted with hosts Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy.

‘But that was really just in the shops, I didn’t go anywhere else. Out on walks, I just kept it covered up. It wasn’t really that hard, though, because of lockdown, I haven’t really seen anyone.’
A glowing Ellie swathed her stomach in a multicoloured jumper and floaty dress as she chatted.
The singer, who married art dealer Caspar in 2019, announced her pregnancy in stunning at-home shots taken for Vogue Magazine.

Ellie’s last major appearance was at the V&A Museum that month and she has spent the duration of lockdown at home in Gloucestershire.
She said: ‘We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea. That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that’s basically when we found out.
‘It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality.
‘Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but]—I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.’

Ellie admitted that being pregnant during a pandemic felt like a lonely experience but felt like complaining about being pregnant was a taboo.
But while she does know the baby’s gender ‘by default’ when she had the scan, she admits she wasn’t into having any sort of gender reveal and just wanted a healthy baby.
Ellie and Jasper met in 2016 after they were seated next to each other at a dinner arranged by their mutual friend, Princess Eugenie.
The pair got married at a star-studded wedding at York Minster in August 2019, attended by everyone from the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson to the actress Sienna Miller and singers Katy Perry and James Blunt.
