Princess Eugenie has given birth to a baby boy, Buckingham Palace has announced.
The Queen’s granddaughter, Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, greeted their son, who weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce, on Tuesday, February 9th at 8:55 a.m.
The new royal baby – the first child of Eugenie and Mr. Brooksbank – is the Queen and ninth great-grandchild of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The baby arrived at Portland Hospital, where the Duchess of Sussex had her son Archie.
Buckingham Palace said Jack was with his wife when he was born.
The Palace said in a statement: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York, Sarah, the Duchess of York and Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.”
It added, “Your Royal Highness and your child are fine.”
Eugenie’s enthusiastic parents, the Duke of York and ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, have become grandparents for the first time.
The baby is eleventh on the throne, and the latest addition to the royal family means the Queen and Philip’s youngest son, the Earl of Wessex, who was third when he was born in 1964, ranks twelfth in the line of succession advanced in the series.
The royal family is delighted to arrive as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the country and beyond.
