This from the Royal Family today:

Little August Brooksbank was born at London on 9 February 2021. He is the first child of Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie, who married in 2018. The couple have named their son in honor of his maternal great-grandfather Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (b.1921); they have also named him in honor of two of the baby’s 5 x great-grandfathers: Rev. Edward Hawke Brooksbank (1789-1883) on father Jack’s side and Baron Auguste Louis von Senarclens de Grancy (1794-1871) OR Prince Franz August Karl Albert Emanuel of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1819-1861; the Prince Consort) on mother Eugenie’s side.

Happy parents: Jack and Eugenie with their son.

Master August Brooksbank is eleventh in the line of succession to the British throne.
