Princess Eugenie baby: What has Eugenie named her son? Palace confirms


PRINCESS EUGENIE recently gave birth to her first child, a little boy. But what has Eugenie named her son?

Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, recently welcomed a little boy into the world. The newborn is the couple’s first child, following their wedding in 2018, and is also the first grandchild of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the Duke and Duchess of York. The baby boy is also the ninth great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

“Jack Brooksbank was present. The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.

“The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.”

The baby is believed to have been named in a touching tribute to Prince Philip who was recently admitted to hospital.

What has Princess Eugenie called her son?

Princess Eugenie and Jack have finally announced their son’s name, much to the delight of royal onlookers everywhere.

The couple delayed announcing their son’s name, leading to much speculation over what the little royal will be called.

But now, all has been revealed, with Eugenie and Jack choosing to name their son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Eugenie and Jack took to social media to make the announcement.

The couple posted a very sweet family picture of the three of them, with Eugenie and Jack looking absolutely delighted at being new parents.

The caption reads: “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.”

Another wrote: “Congratulations. He’s beautiful and you look amazing too! Nothing Better than a new baby boy (I have 5 sons!) You’re in for a great adventure.”

One more said: “What a gorgeous name for a beautiful little boy. Congratulations!!”

Princess Eugenie and Jack welcomed their son 11 days ago, and the decision to delay the announcement of the name is quite unusual.

In comparison, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex typically waited about two days after the birth.

The picture is understood to have been snapped by the couple’s midwife, who they described as being “wonderful”, at their home.

The caption adds: “Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy.”

Fans were quick to praise the couple in the comments section of the Instagram post.

One posted: “He’s absolutely beautiful!! Thank you for sharing these photos of your precious family!! Wishing you all the best!!.”

However, one key difference is that Eugenie is not a working member of the royal family.

Meghan was at the time of Archie’s birth, but Eugenie works as an art director in a London art gallery.

Similarly, her cousin Zara Tindall, who isn’t a working royal either, also kept onlookers waiting, choosing to announce Lena’s name nine days after her birth.

Back in 1998, the Duke and Duchess of York took two weeks to confirm Beatrice’s name, while the Queen didn’t share Charles’ name for a month after he was born in 1948.
