Eugenie and Jack, who welcomed their son on February 9th, revealed their son’s name over the weekend.

Meanwhile, his other name comes from Jack’s side of the family, his 5x grandfather, Rev. Edward Hawke Brooksbank. While it’s possible that Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson have met their grandson, no indication has been made that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philp have met the baby, yet.
So far reports say that both mother and child are doing well. Just after she gave birth, Eugenie and Jack released a statement to fans that said, “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.”
