Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank announced their baby son’s name today – August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

The Queen’s granddaughter, 30, shared three photos of herself and husband Jack, 35, posing with their bundle of joy as they introduced him to the world for the first time.

As she posted the snaps on Instagram, Eugenie wrote: “We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank..” followed by a series of blue heart emojis.

The new mum then shared her thanks for fans for their well wishes after she announced the birth of her son earlier this month.

“We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.⁣”

Eugenie has since taken to Instagram again to reveal her son’s name is a touching tribute to her grandfather, Prince Philip, as well as Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert, whose birth name was Franz Albert August Karl Emanuel.

She wrote on her Instagram stories: “On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy. He is named after his great grandfather and both of his 5x great grandfathers.”

According to nameberry, the name August is a boy’s name of Latin origin meaning “great and magnificent”.

The month of August was named after the Emperor Augustus and it is becoming a popular name in Hollywood – used by Law and Order star Mariska Hargitay.

It is also shared with Prince Ernst August of Hanover and is still popular among the German hereditary royal line, from which Queen Victoria descends.

While the little boy’s second name is a tribute to Prince Philip, who is currently in hospital, his third name, Hawke, is an old Anglo-Saxon name deriving from the Old English “Hafon”.

Traditionally a surname, Hawke has become more popular among new parents since 2018, according to BabyCenter.

She captioned the snaps: “By our wonderful midwife. Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy.”
