Princess Eugenie has shared the cute reasons behind her latest child’s names as she announced today that she has welcomed her second child with her husband Jack Brooksbank. The little boy, named Ernest George Ronnie, was born on May 30 – with the announcement being made almost a week after his birth. In keeping with royal tradition, the new royal baby’s chosen names hold very special meanings – with them being inspired by significant people in Eugenie’s life.

In the announcement, Eugenie gave an insight into the baby boy’s names, writing: “He is named after his great-great-great grandfather George, his grandpa George and my grandpa Ronald.”

Ernest’s triple-great grandfather would be Britain’s King George V – who was also the grandfather of Eugenie’s own beloved grandmother, the late Queen Elizabeth II.

George is also the name of Jack’s father, therefore Ernest’s grandfather and the Prince and Princess of Wales’s eldest son.ernest

Ronnie pays homage to Eugenie’s maternal grandfather – Sarah Ferguson’s father.

The name reveal comes after many speculated that the 33-year-old would choose names based on people close to her heart.

Eugenie and Jack’s first son, two-year-old August was born in February 2021.

The little boy, who is affectionately referred to as Augie by his mother, holds the middle name of Philip – as well as Hawke.
