Eugenie and Jack reveal their baby’s unusual name with a touching tribute to Prince Philip

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have revealed the name of their baby.

Buckingham Palace confirmed on Saturday that the child is called August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

The naming announcement came alongside the first family picture of the threesome together in the grounds of Frogmore Cottage where the couple are currently living.

August, who is The Queen’s ninth great grandchild, was born on February 9 at London’s Portland Hospital.

The baby’s middle name, Philip, is more than likely a tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh who is currently in hospital.

On Instagram, Eugenie wrote:  “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.⁣

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