Princess Eugenie’s Second Baby Is Here – and His Name Has a Special Royal Meaning
The littlest member of the British royal family has arrived. Princess Eugenie announced the birth of her and husband Jack Brooksbank’s second child, a boy, on Instagram on June 5. Alongside a carousel featuring two photos of her new baby, Eugenie wrote, “Jack and I wanted to share the news that we had our little boy, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank on 30th May 2023 at 8.49 weighing 7.1lbs. He is named after his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.”
Eugenie added that her first son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, 2, “is loving being a big brother already.” August – or Augie, as Eugenie called him – smiled alongside his baby brother in the second image mom Eugenie shared.
Eugenie, 33, is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson; her sister, Beatrice, is 34. King George VI was her great-great-great grandfather. Ronald Ferguson was Sarah’s father. George Brooksbank was Jack’s father.
Eugenie announced her pregnancy back in January. At the time, she wrote on Instagram, “We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer.”
