Yesterday we were graced with the exciting news that there's a new royal baby on the block! Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed a baby boy earlier that morning, and they shared their exciting news with the world after some precious time together as a family.

30-year-old Eugenie posted a sweet family photograph on Instagram to announce her newfound motherhood, captioning it with three blue hearts and two exclamation marks, showing the new mum's excitement over her tiny arrival. Ever since, the congratulations - inevitably - have been rolling in.

While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - who are known to be very close with Eugenie and Jack - don't have social media anymore, Hello! reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "privately congratulated the couple." Obviously the Sussexes live all the way in California - and we're in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic - so it's unlikely they'll be able to meet baby Brooksbank any time soon, but we're sure they'll be exchanging photos over Whatsapp and maybe even having the odd video call in weeks to come. Just imagine little Archie waving to his new (second? third?) cousin down the iPad screen 💔.

Beyond Harry and Meghan's private well-wishes, first off the mark to share public regards following the arrival of the currently-nameless new royal baby was none other than James Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's younger brother. Commenting on Princess Eugenie's Insta-post, James wrote: "Congratulations such wonderful news ❤️ "

Well isn't that lovely? I guess the new baby is... kind of, very indirectly related to James, so it's lovely of him to make a public comment.

Prince Charles (Eugenie's uncle) and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, weren't too far behind on social media either, and they chose to shared a beautiful photo of Jack and Eugenie on their wedding day, along with an endearing caption: "Congratulations to Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on the birth of their son. Her Royal Highness was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 08.55 hrs at The Portland Hospital."

There was also an official royal family announcement made, again confirming that everyone's pretty chuffed with the arrival of baby Brooksbank.

"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," read the statement.

It also confirmed that "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital," adding that mother and "are both doing well."

Cheers to some happy lockdown news!
