Less than two weeks after welcoming a baby boy, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank decided to introduce the newest member of the British royal family to the rest of the world. On Saturday morning, Eugenie shared the first family photos with her newborn son on Instagram – and revealed his name.
The couple has named their baby son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.
The newest addition to the royal family was born at the exclusive Portland Hospital in central London at 8.55am on February 9th with his second name in tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.
“On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy,” the princess said on her Instagram, adding: “He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers.”
Baby August is the first grandchild of Eugenie’s parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, and the ninth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
Posting on Instagram, the couple said: “We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.”
“Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express. We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.”
They also thanked their midwife for taking the photos.
The new arrival was born 11th in line to the throne but, following the news later the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a second child, he will move to 12th place.
He also won’t have a royal title despite his mother being a princess.
