Princess Eugenie and her husband have chosen the name of their baby son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York – who is married to Jack Brooksbank - has just announced the name, after giving birth earlier this month. Eugenie did so by posting a sweet family picture on Instagram, which was taken by their midwife. This is their first child, the first grandchild for her parents, and the Queen's ninth great-grandchild. Impressive.

'Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son on 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present', said an official representative earlier this month.

'The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.' Eugenie posted a black and white photograph of her newborn on Instagram.

'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 official announcement continued.

With Eugenie tenth in line to the British throne, her son becomes the eleventh in line, pushing Eugenie's uncle Edward the Earl of Wessex – and, naturally, everyone beneath him in the line of succession – down one place.

What is Eugenie's son's name?

What is Eugenie's son's title?

Well, he doesn't have one! Mail Online is claiming that Princess Eugenie's son will not have a title. Much like the children of Princess Anne, or indeed Harry and Meghan's son Archie, Eugenie's son will therefore not be obliged to undertake royal duties.

Eugenie and Jack – who married in October of 2018 - have been based at Frogmore Cottage, the UK base of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, having previously moved in to Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace. Jack proposed to Eugenie on holiday in Nicaragua in January of that year, with the engagement announcement coming later. Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York said that they were 'delighted', while Jack's parents were 'over the moon.' He was not given a royal title, and is known formally simply as Mr Brooksbank.

The happy news comes not long after Princess Eugenie made a surprising virtual appearance at the beginning of February. She and Julia de Boinville – co-founder of The Anti Slavery Collective – posted a video that paid tribute to those who died in the 2004 Morecambe Bay cockling disaster.

‘17 years ago, 21 Chinese undocumented immigrant labourers were drowned by an incoming tide after picking cockles off the Lancashire coast’, she said, with Julie adding: ‘Please join us in remembering them today.’ Before that, the last public sighting of Eugenie had been in December, when she was photographed leaving her work: she is a Director at the Hauser & Wirth offices in London.
