    In recent years, the millennial royals have dominated the spotlight – especially with their non-stop wedding and baby news.

    This past year, it has been all about Princess Eugenie, who announced to the world this week that she and her husband Jack Brooksbank had welcomed a baby, and being millennials, they did it with an Instagram post.

    While Princess Eugenie simply captioned her post with three blue hearts, her grandmother, the Queen, released an official statement on her own Instagram platform, even adding that she was ‘delighted’.

    ‘Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present,’ the statement reads. ‘The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.’

    It continues: ‘The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.

    ‘This is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first child, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York’s first grandchild, and the ninth great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.’

    Congratulations to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank!
