Princess Eugenie gave birth to her first child with her husband Jack Brooksbank, and they have been congratulated by the royal family.
This morning, Princess EugeniE gave birth to her first child, a boy, at Portland Hospital in London. Proud dad Jack Brooksbank was there for the delivery, and Buckingham Palace recently confirmed that both mother and baby are fine. Eugenie even posted a photo of her newborn’s hand on her personal Instagram account this afternoon. There was no caption to accompany the first photo of the family of three, just some sweet blue hearts:
Naturally, there is a lot of enthusiasm for the youngest member of the royal family, and the official birth announcement revealed that Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were “delighted” to hear the news of their ninth great-grandson.
Eugenie’s mom and dad, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, and Jack’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Brooksbank, were also “delighted” with the arrival of their grandson.
Prince Charles (Eugenie’s uncle) and Camilla shared a separate message on their Clarence House Twitter account, congratulating the new parents, which reads: “Congratulations to His Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on the birth of your son”.
And while the Sussexes have not made a public statement about their enthusiasm for the new royal baby, they have congratulated Jack and Eugenie in private. Before moving to Windsor, the Sussexes lived close to Jack and Eugenie in Kensington Palace, and they are believed to be quite close.
The newborn’s name has yet to be shared publicly.
