Eugenie shared this adorable photo on her Instagram

The royal baby is the first grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, and the ninth great-grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. He is now eleventh in line to the British throne, after his mum Princess Eugenie.

While Eugenie is Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York, it doesn't automatically mean that her son will also inherit a title. As things currently stand, the royal baby will not have a title because these are passed down the male line and Jack does not have a title.
