Beaming Princess Eugenie leaves hospital with baby boy and proud husband Jack

Princess Eugenie beamed as she and husband Jack Brooksbank left hospital with their new baby son.

The proud new parents were photographed leaving The Portland Hospital on Friday afternoon.

Eugenie, the Queen’s granddaughter, gave birth to the little boy on Tuesday morning. He weighed 8lbs 1oz.

The princess wore a tartan dress with a camel coat for her journey home.

She sat in the back with the car seat while hubby Jack was behind the wheel.

The couple couldn’t have looked happier, smiling and waving for photographers before driving away.

The princess shared a cute black and white photo of their hands on Instagram to announce the birth, and there was an official statement from Buckingham Palace.

Eugenie and Jack are yet to announce their son’s name.

A statement from Buckingham Palace read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered a son today, 9th February 2021, at 08:55hrs at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present.

“The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.

“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.”

The Portland is an expensive private hospital in London where Eugenie herself was born, and where Meghan Markle had her son Archie in 2019.

The average stay there costs £20,000, and patients are offered fine dining, child care help and around the clock care.

Eugenie and Jack have spent lockdown at the York family home, Windsor Lodge, with Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

They briefly moved into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Frogmore Cottage, which is also in Windsor and just up the road from Andrew and Fergie, but only stayed six weeks.
