August, meanwhile, shares another important connection with Eugenie's family. He shares a moniker with Queen Victoria's consort Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name. Prince Albert is August's great-great-great-great-great-grandfather.

The baby's second name, Philip, is in honour of Eugenie's grandfather and August's great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.

Eugenie revealed her son's name in a post on her Instagram Stories, which read: "On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy. He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers."
