Princess Eugenie had much to celebrate this weekend, after she enjoyed her first ever Mother's Day following the birth of her baby boy, August, back in February. And to mark it, the royal shared a gorgeous new photo of her month-old son with the world on Instagram.
Taking to social media, Princess Eugenie uploaded an adorable photograph of little August that had all the spring vibes going on. In the picture, the newborn royal can be seen lying on a blanket in amongst some daffodils. For the special occasion, he was dressed in the sweetest white knitted bonnet, along with a matching white cardigan, a dolphin onesie, and some rabbit slippers that I now very much want for myself.
"I'm so excited to be August's mum and as you can see I'm enjoying my first Mother’s Day," wrote the Princess in her joyful post. "I'm also celebrating my beautiful Mumma with this picture of us from March 1990. You’ve taught me so much," she added, in reference to a second photograph on the post which features her own mum, Sarah Ferguson, holding a tiny baby Eugenie. "Happy Mother’s Day to all," Princess Eugenie wrote, adding an emoji of a bouquet of flowers.
The royal and her husband Jack Brooksbank's new arrival became Queen Elizabeth's ninth great-grandchild, and was named in tribute to both sides of his family. The name August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was chosen after his great grandfather, Prince Philip, and both of his great x5 grandfathers.
Announcing her son's name on her official Instagram account in February, Princess Eugenie also excitedly shared the first pictures of little August's face. "We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.. 💙💙💙 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," the proud mother wrote at the time.
Happy first Mother's Day to Princess Eugenie, and we will happily welcome many more photos of her sweet son over on Instagram.
