Proud parents Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have begun their life as a family after they took their son home from hospital.

The couple were pictured driving away from the exclusive Portland Hospital in central London, on Friday afternoon, where their baby was born on Tuesday weighing 8lb 1oz.

Eugenie waived from the back seat of the 4×4 with her son beside her in a carry cot, while husband Jack was driving.

The Duchess of Sussex had her son Archie at the plush, private Portland Hospital, and Eugenie was also born there, as was her sister, Princess Beatrice.

Eugenie, 30, and Jack gave the world the first glimpse of their baby on Tuesday, posting a black and white image on Instagram of their hands cradling his tiny fingers and wrist.

But the couple have yet to reveal the name of their baby, who is 11th in line to the throne.

James and Philip are the favourites with the bookmakers for the newest member of the royal family.

Bookmaker Coral said James had overtaken Arthur in the name stakes, while Betfair had Philip – after the baby’s 99-year-old great-grandfather – as its top choice.

The royal family traditionally wait until the Queen has been informed of a baby’s name before making it public.
