Princess Eugenie has shared a series of adorable pics of her youngest son Ernest as he celebrates his first birthday.

The Princess, 34, welcomed her second son on May 30th 2023, with her husband Jack Brooksbank. Taking to her Instagram account, Eugenie posted an adorable slideshow of pictures of her son, as he celebrates his big day.

“One year of you my dear Ernest. Happy birthday!! We all love you so much, especially your enormous smile you give the world.. but you always save an extra special one for Mumma. Xxx,” Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson ’s daughter wrote in the caption.

In the first picture, little Ernest could be seen sitting on the grass with a blue sports top, thought to be a Chelsea shirt, with his nickname ‘Ernie’ written on the back alongside the number 9, in white text.

In another snap, his older brother August, 3, could be seen sweetly giving him a kiss on the cheek.

Fans flocked to the comment section to gush over the sweet pictures, and to send their birthday wishes. “Happy Birthday! Can’t believe it’s been a whole year!” exclaimed one fan.

Another wrote: “What a charming baby. (August too, of course.) Happy Birthday Ernie!” A third penned: “How precious! Happy birthday Ernest. Such a special day for such a special little boy.” “We love you Ernie so so so much,” wrote one follower.

Eugenie is more active than most royals on social media, however she has generally tended to keep her sons out of the spotlight as much as she can.

She and husband Jack announced the birth of their second child Ernest in June 2023, five days after his birth.

"Jack and I wanted to share the news that we had our little boy, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank on 30th May 2023 at 8.49 weighing 7.1lbs.,” she wrote at the time, sharing a picture of the new born in a knitted blue hat.

Eugenie then went on to explain that her second son was named after “ his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.”

Ernest’s birth came just weeks after the Coronation of King Charles on May 6, as the Princess attended the event heavily pregnant.

The newly turned one year old is currently 13th in line to the throne, sitting just behind his brother August. Despite this, neither of the two boys have been granted royal titles to their name.
