In delightful news, Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank have announced the birth of their second child.

The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York took to her Instagram to share her new baby with the world, revealing the name, gender, and birth date.

“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,” she wrote on Instagram.

“He is named after his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.

“Augie is loving being a big brother already.”

Baby Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank is now 13th in line to the throne.

The royal family first revealed their family of three would be growing to a family of four in January, Eugenie sharing a photo of her first son August kissing her stomach.

“We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,” she wrote at the time.

Buckingham Palace also released a statement at the time of the announcement, which read, “Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank are pleased to announce they are expecting their first child this summer.”

“The family are delighted and August is very much looking forward to being a big brother.”

The devoted couple first met in 2010 when Jack was working as a bartender at a ski resort in Verbier, Switzerland and the rest (as they say) was history!

The day before they wed in an interview with This Morning they gushed about each other and revealed their connection was instant.

“It was love at first sight,” Princess Eugenie shared.

The 31-year-old was so sure of Jack that she called her mum Sarah Ferguson to tell her the news.

“I think I rang my Mum that night and was like ‘I’ve just met this guy Jack’ and that was it I think, and this is how it started,” she said.

The couple wed eight years later at Windsor Castle, and welcomed their first child, a baby boy named August, on the 9th of February 2021.

“We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. 💙💙💙”

“Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express. We are excited to be able to share these photos with you,” Eugenie captioned her official announcement post on February 20th, 2021.
