Princess Eugenie’s baby son with husband Jack Brooksbank will reportedly not have a royal title.

Princess Eugenie and husband Jack announced the birth of their first child together on Tuesday 9 February and have yet to announce his name.

It is now reported that Eugenie’s son, who is 11th in line to the throne, will not have a title nor an official royal role.

According to Mail Online, Eugenie, 30, has decided to focus on motherhood and her career rather than carrying out royal duties, and reportedly wants the same for her child.

Eugenie’s grandmother, the Queen, could bestow a title on her ninth great-grandchild if desired, but will reportedly not be asked to do so.

A source told Mail Online: "Eugenie is adamant that she wants to keep her child out of the limelight as much as possible.

"Yes, she will still work with charities that are close to her heart, like the Scoliosis Association, but she won't be taking over patronages left over by Harry and Meghan, and she won't be standing in for them at public events."

The birth of Eugenie’s son was announced this week in a statement by the Royal family.

It read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present. The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.”

It added: “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.

“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.”

As she shared the image with fans, she added three blue heart emojis alongside the snap.
