Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.
Mr Myers said after the baby announced: “I was also reminded that it was the day Princess Margaret died, so in terms of royal history, it’s turned on its head.
“It’s become a bit of a day for a happy occasion.”
Eugenie and Jack revealed the baby’s name yesterday along with the first proper baby pictures, after just a black-and-white snap of his hand previously.
The couple defied precedent to pick the unusual name August, but bookmakers nailed the fact that Prince Philip was to get a tribute in the name.
One of August’s middle names is Philip, indicating the high regard Eugenie has for her grandfather.
It is particularly poignant at the moment, given that the Duke of Edinburgh is currently in hospital, amid fears for the 99-year-old’s health.
Yesterday, Prince Charles visited his father in hospital, which is only allowed in “exceptional circumstances”, according to the King Edward VI Hospital guidelines.
It is believed the Prince of Wales drove from Highgrove House in Gloucestershire and back for the visit.
Buckingham Palace said earlier in the week that the Duke’s admission to hospital was just a “precaution”.
The baby photographs posted on Instagram were taken by Eugenie’s midwife from The Portland Hospital, who visited the couple at home to discharge their baby from the hospital’s care.
They showed August swaddled in blue cloth, being held by his thrilled parents.
The princess captioned the images: “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.
Princess Eugenie ‘thankful’ for Meghan baby reveal says expert
Twelve days ago, August was born at 8:55am, weighing 8 lbs 1oz and the family left hospital a few days later.
The Portland Hospital, where Eugenie chose to have her baby, was previously her mother Sarah Ferguson’s choice and where she herself was born.
The high-end private hospital in London has an average maternity stay price tag of £20,000 but can cost up to £500,000 with all the additional luxuries.
Some of the benefits include fine dining served on silver platters, a photographer on hand to capture the moment, should you wish, and a goody back with expensive gifts when you leave.
The couple have taken their little one back to Frogmore Cottage, the WIndsor residence belonging to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who have agreed to let the prince’s cousin use it in their absence.
The property was recently renovated with a baby in mind, so it is perfect for the trio.
August is the first grandchild of the Duke and Duchess of York and ninth great-grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
