Over the weekend, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank shared photos of their son taken by a midwife at Frogmore Cottage. They also shared the news the baby's name is August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. Writing on Instagram, Eugenie said, "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."
Eugenie shared background on the name choice and family connection in this Instagram story.
'In addition to the sweet tribute to Philip, 99, the couple also chose to honor one family member from Eugenie's side and another from Jack's.
The baby boy gets his first name from Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert, who was born Franz Albert August Karl Emanuel. The name August means "great, magnificent."
The rest of his moniker comes from a 5x grandfather on Jack's side, Rev. Edward Hawke Brooksbank.'
