Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank have revealed the name of their newborn baby boy, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Buckingham Palace revealed the name in a statement yesterday. 

The baby — a ninth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth II — was born on February 9 at London's Portland Hospital.

The baby is not expected to get a royal title and will be known as Master August Brooksbank.

Eugenie married 35-year-old Brooksbank, a businessman, in October 2018 at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

"Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can't express," she wrote, adding that the photo was taken "by our wonderful midwife."

"Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy," she said.
