    Princess Eugenie has given birth to her second child with her husband Jack Brooksbank.

    The 33-year-old royal gave birth on May 30 at London's Portland Hospital, a post on her Instagram account said.

    Eugenie and her husband have named their second born child Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank, just two years after welcoming their first born, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank on February 9, 2021.

    The post explained he was born weighing 7.1lbs. It added: "He is named after his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George and my Grandpa Ronald.

    "Augie is loving being a big brother already."

    Speculation that Eugenie had been in labour was rife in the run-up to the pregnancy following the announcement in January earlier this year.

    She and Mr Brooksbank revealed the news with a sweet post announcing they were expecting “this summer,” but didn’t make public an official due date.

    It was only later on that Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, announced that the newest member of the royal clan was expected at the “end of May.”

    Phil Dampier went one further and told GB News had revealed early that the daughter of Prince Andrew had gone into labour.

    Despite being a long way through the term, Eugenie turned out to King Charles’s coronation on May 6 to celebrate the monarch ascending the throne.

    She appeared at the historic event with Mr Brooksbank and her sister Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

    The couple is understood to have moved back to their first time, Ivy Cottage, ahead of the birth with a closer geographical location to Portland Hospital.
