Her son’s name was revealed on social media on Saturday by Princess Eugenie herself, who is the granddaughter of British Queen Elizabeth II.
The youngest member of the British royal family, the newborn son of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, was named August Philip Hawke. Eugenie, who is the granddaughter of British Queen Elizabeth II, announced this Saturday on the social network. Augustus is the couple’s firstborn child. He was born on February 9 at The Portland Hospital in London, where his mother, now 30-year-old Eugenie, was born in 1990.
August Philip Hawke Brooksbank is the ninth great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. and is currently the 11th successor to the British throne. Eugenie said the son was named after his great-great-great-great-grandfather Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria, whose middle name was Augustus. The middle name of the youngest member of the royal family is again a tribute to Prince Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, who is currently hospitalized in a London hospital. He was accepted there this week because he did not feel well, the AP bureau recalled.
Hawke, the last of the boy’s many names, is again a used name in the Brooksbank family. Eugenie informed about the name of the child on Instagram below the photo in which she holds her son together with her husband. Augustus is wrapped in a blue blanket and has a blue cap on his head.
Princess Eugenie, currently the tenth heir to the throne, is the younger daughter of the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. She now moved to Windsor Castle in 2018 for her 35-year-old Brooksbank.
The British royal family will soon grow again, as Prince Harry and his wife Meghan and Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne, expect an increase this year.
