Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank shared a gorgeous new photo of their baby son August in honour of Mother's Day.

  • Princess Eugenie shared a beautiful new photo of her baby son August on Mother's Day. 
  • Sunday marked Eugenie’s first Mother's Day as a mum, having welcomed baby August with husband Jack Brooksbank in February.
  • This royal news comes after Kate Middleton laid flowers for Sarah Everad at the Clapham Common memorial. 

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank announced the birth of their son August on the 9th of February.

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

The couple announced their son’s name 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.
