Princess Eugenie talks about the 'joy' son August has brought her in emotional letter

Baby August was born on 9 February 2021

Princess Eugenie has spoken about the joy that her first born son August has brought her, as she thanked one royal fan for their well wishes. 

In a letter that was sent out before the sad passing of the Duke of Edinburgh on Friday, Eugenie enclosed a copy of one of the very first photos of August, wrapped up in a blue blanket and sound asleep in his dad Jack Brooksbank's arms.

The Princess' handwritten letter to Gert's Royals read: "Thank you so much for thinking of us and celebrating the birth of our beautiful baby boy, August. 

"Words can't express the joy and love we feel. With our very best, Eugenie and Jack."
