It's a boy!
On Tuesday (February 9), Princess Eugenie welcomed a baby boy with her husband Jack Brooksbank. Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter shared the happy news in quite a modern way for the royal family—she posted a black and white photo of her son's hand on Instagram. She simply captioned the shot with three blue heart emojis.
The Palace released an official statement sharing the news, as well, in keeping with royal tradition. "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 8: 55 a.m. at The Portland Hospital," the announcement reads. "Jack Brooksbank was present."
"The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news," the statement continues. "Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."
Princess Eugenie's baby boy weighs 8 lbs., 1. oz. He is the ninth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, making him eleventh in line to inherit the throne. As of now, Princess Eugenie has not publicly disclosed her son's name.
Congratulations to the Royal Family!
