Princess Eugenie names son after grandfather Prince Philip

Princess Eugenie revealed the name of her newborn son Saturday — and it includes a sweet nod to her grandfather, Prince Philip.

Eugenie shared the name, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, with her 1.3 million followers Instagram.

August, born Feb. 9, is the first child of the princess and husband Jack Brooksbank, who married in 2018.

The tribute comes as Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, spends a few days resting in the hospital after falling ill Tuesday evening.

“Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express,” Eugenie, 30, posted. “We are excited to be able to share these photos with you.⁣”

Photos accompanying the name news show the couple holding August, who is wearing a blue hat and swaddled in a matching blanket.

In her caption, Eugenie also revealed that August was delivered by a midwife, who took the pictures of the new family.

“Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy,” Eugenie wrote.

Eugenie is the younger daughter of Sarah Ferguson and disgraced Prince Andrew, and the third youngest of Philip and the Queen’s eight grandchildren.
