Princess Eugenie's son is announced

Princess Eugenie waited a week to announce the news of her son Ernest's arrival on May 30.

Princess Eugenie has given birth to a son and named him Ernest, she has announced.

The late Queen's granddaughter, 33, and husband Jack Brooksbank, 37, welcomed their second child, who weighed 3.2 kg, nearly a week ago on May 30.

Their eldest child, two-year-old August, is now a big brother.

Eugenie posted on her Instagram account: "Jack and I wanted to share the news that we had our little boy, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank on 30th May 2023 at 8.49 weighing 3.2 kg.

"He is named after his great great great Grandfather, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.

"Augie is loving being a big brother already."

Eugenie shared a picture of Ernest, wearing a knitted blue-and-white hat, asleep in a Moses basket, and one of August tenderly stroking his brother's head.

Ernest has arrived in the King's coronation year, just weeks after the ceremony.

He is the first of Elizabeth II's great-grandchildren to be born since her death last September.

The newest member of the royal family, whose title is Master Brooksbank, is 13th in line to the throne, moving the Duke of Edinburgh down to 14th place.

A heavily pregnant Eugenie, daughter of the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York, joined the Windsors to witness her uncle Charles's coronation in Westminster Abbey at the start of May, with Mr Brooksbank seated next to the Duke of Sussex in the third row.
