August is now the ninth great-grandchild of The Queen and Prince Philip and is 11th in the royal line of succession (opens in new tab) - but he'll move down to 12th when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter (opens in new tab) is born. 

The couple announced their son’s name (opens in new tab) in an Instagram post days after his birth.

They named him August Philip Hawke Brooksbank after Prince Philip and his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name.
