The first photo of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal baby is here! After Buckingham Palace released an official statement confirming the safe arrival of the couple's baby boy, Eugenie posted her own announcement, via the chosen medium of the 21st century royal: Instagram. She shared an adorable black-and-white photo of her new arrival's tiny hand, wrapped around (presumably) Eugenie's finger and supported by Brooksbank. The royal captioned the photo with three blue heart emojis.
Eugenie (and her new son) are no strangers to Instagram: The princess announced her pregnancy with an Instagram post last September, sharing a photo of some baby slippers with the caption, "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021...."
