British Royal Family News find that with all of the debate surrounding Archie and whether or not he should be given the title of a prince, it looks like his cousin August Philip Hawke Brooksbank is going to “grow up an ordinary little boy,” despite the fact that his great grandmother is the Queen of England. Here’s what you need to know.
Ever since Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son August last month, they’ve been keeping a rather low profile.
In fact, they are spending all of their freedom as a new family of three at home, away from all of the royal drama that is probably going on at Buckingham Palace right now because of Prince Philip’s hospitalization and of course, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah.
British Royal Family News: Princess Eugenie’s Son August Won’t Grow Up Royal
“We’re told that Eugenie and Jack are doing really well,” royal expert Katie Nicholl tells ET Online just recently. “They are thrilled to be parents. They are absolutely overcome with love and emotion for their little son.”
As many fans know, the couple welcomed their baby boy on Feb. 9, and revealed his special name earlier this week — August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.
“It was very special that [Prince] Phillip — of course, Eugenie’s grandfather to whom she’s incredibly close — has been honored and [paid] tribute to in the naming of their child,” Nicholl shares. She also says of the baby’s unique first name, “August is an unusual first name [as] he’s not an August baby. But apparently it was the name that the couple really like.”
Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack have also made it clear that they plan on raising their son as ‘normal’ as possible, meaning that he won’t be living in a royal bubble like some of his other cousins at Buckingham Palace.
In fact, Nicholl says Eugenie and Jack “tend to be very modern when it comes to parenting,” so they’ve thus far decided to forgo a royal title for their newborn son. “They don’t want that burden of a royal title [on] their son. I think this little royal is going to grow up an ordinary little boy indeed.”
