Yesterday was a special day for Princess Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, as he celebrated his first birthday as a dad!

Taking to Instagram to mark the day, the 31-year-old royal shared new photos of their baby son August, who they welcomed into the world in February.

The first two photos showed Jack holding his son to his chest, who's dressed in a cosy white knit sweater that's embroidered with his name in blue.

The final snap saw the birthday boy walking in the countryside.

"You are exceptional. Happy Birthday my love," she wrote alongside sweet photos.

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank was born on February 9.

With the exciting news shared on the Royal family's official social media accounts.

"Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital," a tweet read.

"The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well," it added.

August is Eugenie's first and the first grandchild for the Duke and Duchess of York, but the ninth great-grandchild for the Queen.

The couple were married on 12 October 2018 at St George's Chapel.

Brooksbank was offered a title by the Queen before their marriage but declined. His decision means their son will not automatically receive a title.

Of the Queen's eight great-grandchildren only three have titles, namely William and Kate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, putting them squarely in the minority.
