Princess Eugenie has shared a new photo of her baby son, August Brooksbank, as she marked her birthday this week.

Eugenie turned 31 on March 23rd and the following day, she released two new images of her family via her Instagram page with a message of thanks for the birthday wishes sent her way.

The photos include a close up of August who is peeking over the shoulder of his dad, Jack Brooksbank. The second image is of Eugenie and her family in their garden.

In her message, the Princess wrote ”Thank you for the birthday love yesterday! I got the best present I could ask for.”

The new post wasn’t shared until late on March 24th and came over 12 hours after Eugenie’s cousin, Zara Tindall, announced the birth of her own son. Lucas Philip Tindall arrived on March 21st 2021 at his family home with his dad, Mike Tindall, revealing the news of his arrival on his podcast on the morning of March 24th.

The new images of August are the third set of photos shared by his parents since his birth on February 9th 2021 at London’s Portland Hospital. The couple were pictured with their son in their garden several days after his birth with the image captured by the family midwife. Eugenie released a photo of her baby boy among the spring daffodils to mark Mother’s Day in the UK on March 14th before adding these two new images for her birthday.

August Brooksbank arrived on February 9th 2021 at the Portland Hospital in London where Princess Eugenie was also born. August is the ninth of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh’s ten great grandchildren and is currently eleventh in line to the throne.
