Princess Eugenie has shared another sweet family photo with little August as she celebrated her first Easter since becoming a mom. 

Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank earlier this year. It is thought she named her son after his royal relatives, including a touching tribute to her grandfather Prince Philip. Breaking with tradition, Princess Eugenie also revealed the first picture of her baby on Instagram, rather than via an official photograph taken on the steps of the hospital where he was born, as with her cousin Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s three children.

Since welcoming little August, she has shared several more equally adorable snaps, giving insight into their life as a family of three. And Easter proved no different! The Queen and Prince Charles released a stunning new photograph together celebrating spring over the weekend. 

However, once again Eugenie seemed to prefer a deeply personal approach as she took to Instagram to post an Easter message. 

More from woman&home:

The photograph she posted couldn’t have been more spring-like, with the proud parents standing in front of an impressive blossom-laden tree. Jack can be seen with little August strapped to his chest in a carrier with his hand resting on his son’ s back. 

Eugenie captioned the post simply: ‘Wishing everyone a Happy Easter 🌼🐣🌼  and a blossoming Spring. #happyeaster #blossom #spring’. 

Fans were quick to express their delight at this beautiful photo, with one writing: ‘So much love to your family❤️ ’, while another commented ‘Beautiful photo 🥰💐 ‘ and a fellow royal fan wrote ‘Happy Easter to you and your hubby and baby ❤️❤️❤️❤️ ‘.

And it seems some were just as impressed with the beautiful blossom tree behind the family, as one replied ‘What a tree!! 😍🌸🌸🌸 ‘.

Prior to Princess Eugenie posting this new cute snap, she also shared an equally heartfelt picture on UK Mother’s Day last month. The Queen’s granddaughter expressed her delight at celebrating this occasion as a mom for the first time and also paid tribute to her own mother Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York with a second picture included in the post. 

In the first, August can be seen lying among a sea of bright daffodils on a cozy blanket. 

‘I’m so excited to be August’s mum and as you can see I’m enjoying my first Mother’s Day’, Eugenie wrote. 

‘I’m also celebrating my beautiful Mumma with this picture of us from March 1990. You’ve taught me so much. ⁣

‘Happy Mother’s Day to all 💐 ‘. 

The birth of Princess Eugenie’s son August came just a month before her cousin Zara Tindall welcomed her son Lucas, while Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, are currently expecting baby number two, who some have suggested is due later this summer.

These royal births will make this a record-breaking year for the Queen. She and Prince Philip will be proud great-grandparents of eleven children once baby Sussex arrives.
