No. Since the Succession to the Crown Act came into effect in 2015 only the first six need permission to marry. As Eugenie - by the time of her marriage will be 9th in the line of succession she won't need permission to marry at all.
After the new baby is born Andrew won't need permission and everyone lower than him in the line of succession will be able to marry without asking for the Queen's consent.
It means that there won't be a Privy Council meeting where the issue is raised and that Eugenie and Jack - and hopefully later Beatrice - won't get the fancy parchment consent that William and Kate have, as do Peter and Autumn and Zara and Mike. Eugenie will be the highest in the line of succession, since the introduction of Royal Marriage Act under George III to not need consent.
