With Andrew, and Sarah Ferguson's grandson's addition to the official order of succession, Princess Eugenie's uncle Prince Edward moves down a place, and Edward's teenage children, James, Viscount Severn, and Lady Louise, subsequently move down a slot.

Buckingham Palace made the announcement of the new prince's arrival in a statement as said: "Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their son, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank."

Andrew's daughter also confirmed his arrival in an Instagram post, expressing that he was named after "his great great great Grandfather George, his Grandpa George, and my Grandpa Ronald."

Eugenie added: “Augie is loving being a big brother already.” She concluded the post with blue and red heart emojis.

The Duchess of York also candidly spoke about the her grandson's arrival on an episode of her new podcast, saying: "He is a very, very seriously beautiful little boy. Now, of course, everyone says that, but, of course, he is."
