Eugenie took to Instagram to also share her son’s name along with a sweet family photo of the married couple and their new bundle of joy.

Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy,” Eugenie wrote in the caption.
Eugenie said on Instagram that the baby is named after his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, who had Augustus as a middle name.
One of his middle names also pays tribute to Eugenie’s grandfather, Prince Philip. who was hospitalized on Tuesday after feeling ill. Hawke is a Brooksbank family name.
The baby is not expected to get a royal title and will be known as Master August Brooksbank.
“Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 8: 55 a.m. at The Portland Hospital,” the palace said in a statement on Feb. 9. “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. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”
The princess, 30, also took to Instagram where she shared the joyous news by posting a black-and-white photo of the baby’s hands holding his parents. She simply captioned the sweet photo with three blue hearts.
Eugenie married 35-year-old Brooksbank, a businessman, in October 2018 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The queen and Prince Philip have two more great-grandchildren on the way. Both Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Princess Anne’s daughter Zoe Tindall are due to give birth this year.
