Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son at The Portland Hospital on Tuesday, February 9 at 8.55am. The royal arrival – who weighed 8lbs 1oz – is the couple’s first and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s ninth great-grandchild.

Buckingham Palace said Jack was at his wife’s side for the birth, saying: “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.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Sharing the news on her Instagram account, Eugenie posted a sweet black and white image of their newborn.

The caption alongside the adorable snap, which showed the princess holding her little one’s tiny hand, just featured three blue hearts.

Royal fans have gushed over the joyful news, with hundreds wishing their congratulations to the family.

One posted on the Instagram picture: “Ahhh welcome to the world little one!! Congratulations to the happy couple.”

Another said: “Huge congratulations! Welcome to another baby boy in the family.”

A third wrote: “Congratulations! Blessings to the parents and the little baby!”

One user said: “Congratulations!!!!! You all deserve every happiness!”

Princess Eugenie and Jack confirmed their pregnancy last autumn, sharing that their little one was due in “early 2021”.

A close friend to the couple later shared the baby was due in ‘mid-February’ but an exact due date was never confirmed.

The baby’s name has yet to be released, but the little tot will not have a royal title despite his mother’s status.

The bundle of joy is the first grandchild of Eugenie’s delighted parents, the Duke of York and ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York.

But his arrival comes after a tough few months for Jack’s family after his father George contracted COVID-19 in 2020 and was put on a ventilator for five weeks.

Eugenie, 30, and her husband were warned to “prepare for the worst” but Mr Brooksbank thankfully,recovered,with his daughter-in-law posting a video thanking NHS staff for saving his life.

He will be known as Master Brooksbank and will not be an HRH nor hold a title, unless the Queen decides to intervene and give Mr Brooksbank an earldom or issue a Letters Patent. However, it is thought this to be unlikely. 

The baby is 11th in line to the throne, bumping the Queen and Philip’s youngest son the Earl of Wessex – who was third in line when he was born in 1964 – down to 12th place.

Princess Eugenie’s son is the second cousins with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, along with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie in the USA. He is also the Queen’s ninth great-grandchild.

The Daily Express Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer tweeted: “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York and Jack’s parents, Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank, have been informed and are delighted with the news, the palace says.”
