Princess Eugenie proudly celebrated her first Mother's Day with her baby son on Sunday.

The royal, who turns 31 later this month, shared a new photograph of August on Instagram to mark the occasion.

The adorable image showed baby August lying on his back on a striped blanket in the garden, surrounded by daffodils.

He was wearing whale-print leggings from Kent-based business The English Beagle, a white knitted jumper and a matching hat, with adorable white fluffy bunny shoes from Doudou et Compagnie finishing off his spring outfit.

"I'm also celebrating my beautiful Mumma with this picture of us from March 1990. You’ve taught me so much. ⁣Happy Mother’s Day to all."

The second photo showed Sarah Ferguson holding baby Eugenie, who was wrapped in a white blanket as she slept soundly.

His name pays homage to Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert, whose full name was Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel.

Meanwhile, August's middle names, Philip and Hawke, are tributes to his great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, and Jack's great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, Rev. Edward Hawke Brooksbank.

The tot is currently 11th in line to the throne behind his mother but he will move down to 12th when the Duchess of Sussex gives birth to her and Prince Harry's second child.
