Princess Eugenie posted a new photo of August Philip Hawke for Mother’s Day

Princess Eugenie gave birth on February 10. Everything around the birth happened at a pace Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank determined, meaning they posted photos on their own schedule, announced the name of August Philip Hawke on their own timeline, and now that August is more than a month old, there are absolutely ZERO demands for Eugenie to have a big, public christening or to “show us your baby.” Which… is how it should be. Everything about Eugenie’s pregnancy, delivery and the first months home with her baby was what should have happened with the Duchess of Sussex. Instead, salty white folks were screaming at Meghan on an hourly basis about everything having to do with her first pregnancy and Archie’s birth.

I bring this up because even though no one was asking, Princess Eugenie posted a photo of Baby August Philip Hawke onto her own Instagram for Mother’s Day. Unlike the stiff, obvious PR coming from some in the Windsor clan, you can tell that Eugenie is just enjoying her first weeks in relative seclusion with her baby. These photos were likely taken on the Windsor Castle complex, where Eugenie, Jack and August have been staying at Frogmore Cottage, which was paid for by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I love August’s little bunny slippers!! The daffodils are gorgeous too. I wonder if, despite people saying the opposite, Fergie and Prince Andrew have been stopping by quite regularly to see their first grandchild.

    I would really love to see what Frogmore looks like on the inside.

      I think the Sussexes asked one thing of Eugenie, not to show the inside of Frogmore Cottage, which not a hard thing to do, since they’re not paying for the upkeep.
      I’m so glad that Meghan and Harry only showed the hen house, oops Inn.
      They were waiting with bated breath to talk about the cost of everything, the porch furniture sold out, Christopher Knight from the Brady Bunch who is one of the owners, said people were calling, telling him his furniture was featured in the interview.

    He’s so tiny!

    I’m glad that they’ve been able to enjoy pregnancy and the birth of their first child without too much drama.

    Are those horrible headbands making a comeback?

  5. Becks1 says:

    I thought that was a really adorable picture, the daffodils are so pretty! Eugenie is pretty good at social media, and I enjoy seeing her posts, except her father of course.

    His little bunny slippers! I miss babies. Sigh.

      Same. I love the babies. Guess I’ll have to hope for grandchildren down the line . . .

    What a precious little guy! I love those bunny slippers.

    Ok call me very very VERY slow but I just realized that it is NOT Mother’s Day in the US or even CLOSE to being Mothers Day! Does the UK celebrate it on a different date?? They must right? In fact I bet that detail was explained in at least one of the Mum’s Day articles on the site. I cannot tell a lie sometimes I just kind of skim the article and then go STRAIGHT to the comments.
    also, Eugenie looks SO INSANELY AMAZING in the first pic ( In the brightly colored dress) I almost hate her for it

    and also also, it really is kinda tragic how Fergie seems like she is NEVER going to try to find love again (and I don’t think for a second that she and Andrew are anything other than exes and co-parents/grandparents right now) because she will NEVER give up her Duchess title, or her proximity to the royal family. Despite her more stupid, desperate moves like selling access to Andrew she actually DOES seem like she’s probably a friendly, approachable person and at least one of her kids seems to be living a respectable life (and that child is NOT beatrice) But unfortunately I think she probably ALSO represents the average Brit in that she is willing to give up having a full life and surround herself with people who im sure have shown her no shortage of scorn in order to maintain that proximity to the royal family. like that proximity is the fantasy of most British people and the average Brit would hand over their first born for it. Which unfortunately makes me think that changing British attitudes about the monarchy is a HUGE, EXTREMELY daunting undertaking and will most definitely not happen over night. Frankly I think it will take a couple generations.

      I mean she was also a friend of Epstein and accepted large amounts of money from him, so I’m guessing she is not actually a nice person.

    • MaryContrary says:

      She’s had some long term boyfriends though. I’m sure she won’t remarry however, because she definitely likes the title and the perks.

    It’s a cute pic except for the fact that it doesn’t make much sense to show the back of his head. 🤷‍♀️
